What does an ultra sound that says normal uterus but very heterogeneous with a few poorly defined fibroids mean?

What does an ultra sound that says normal uterus but very heterogeneous with a few poorly defined fibroids mean?

May mean adenomyosis: Difficult to say for sure. You should discuss findings with your doctor. I often see pelvic ultrasounds describe significant heterogeneity which is due to adenomyosis but called fibroids instead. They are both benign conditions and both cause similar symptoms (and you could even have both). A pelvic MRI is a good way to answer this but first talk to your doctor to explain the results. ...Read more

Hi ! I have been diagnosed with a rudimentary horn in my uterus !  this sounds very scary . What is it actually  & what r the consequences?

Yikes! A horn!: When we are just embryos, two tubes join together to create the uterus. If the tubes join incorrectly, the uterus may have "variations:" anything from a double uterus and double cervix to a single uterus with a wall dividing it into halves. Another variation is a "rudimentary horn" - a partial division. In general, a small variation like i'm guessing you have won't cause trouble, but ask your doc! ...Read more

Can a ultra sound mistake the size of a tumor on uterus ? I've heard a woman was told hers was small and it ended up being 30 pounds after removal.

Can a ultra sound mistake the size of a tumor on uterus ? I've heard a woman was told hers was small and it ended up being 30 pounds after removal.

Do not belive everyt: Everything you hear is not true. Ultrasound is a good test, yet it is not perfect. If there is any concerns a ct scan can be a complementary second test to be done when there is something really there either as persistent symptoms or a suspected growth/tumor. ...Read more

My ultra sound showed fluid in lower uterus or abdomen, possibly localized blood. What does this mean and what could be the cause?

My ultra sound showed fluid in lower uterus or abdomen, possibly localized blood. What does this mean and what could be the cause?

Free fluid in abdom: It is not uncommon to have fluid in the abdomen on ultrasound or advance imaging such as CT scans often referred to by radiologists as 'free fluid'. This can be entirely benign or can be indication of a disease process depending on the symptoms associated. Ruptured ovarian cysts, bleeding from endometriosis, retrograde menstruation, ascites, heart failure, cancer etc can cause fluid in the abdomen ...Read more
