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

Why a doc need to do a ultra sound on my uterus?

You will need to ask: There are many reasons to do an ultrasound. You would need to ask your doctor why you specifically need one. We can answer general questions but do not have access to your specific health information. If you are having problems with your period or something abnormal was felt on exam then maybe the doctor wanted to evaluate it. ...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?

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

Is it normal to have a "intrauterine mass" on the "back of my uterus?" On the MRI it looks like it is near my tailbone. Does this sound right?

Is it normal to have a "intrauterine mass" on the "back of my uterus?" On the MRI it looks like it is near my tailbone. Does this sound right?

Not normal: An utrauterine mass is not normal. Most of the time these are fibroids, which are benign. Usually MRI can diagnose fibroids since they tend to have typical MRI signal characteristics. Sometimes they appear more indeterminate. Since they don't seem to specifically mention fibroid, it sounds like they are not quite sure at this point.. Talk to your doctor, you made need follow-up for this. ...Read more

Dr.  Concerned about clots seen via ultra sound, in my uterus after 9 weeks postpartum?  Could this be life threatening? Follow up on wednesday

Not likely: This isn't likely to be life-threatening. But it's possible that there is a piece of placenta left behind and a removal of the tissue and clots may be needed. As long as the bleeding isn't heavy and there isn't a fever, it just needs follow-up but isn't likely to cause major trouble. ...Read more

My ultra sound revealed 3 small fibroids and no thickening of uterus. I am 55 and in early menopause and still spot. How often should I have ultsound?

My ultra sound revealed 3 small fibroids and no thickening of uterus.  I am 55 and in early menopause and still spot. How often should I have ultsound?

1-2x/year, or as nee: Depending on where the fibroids are (if not involving the inside lining/endometrium) - they probably aren't causing the spotting, the thin lining is very reassuring that u don't have endometrial cancer. If you continue to have spotting, then periodic (annual or 2x/yr) sono's may be helpful. If it bothers u (spotting) then u could look into tx's (an ablation, or other procedure). ...Read more

Endometriosis?: Your ob/gyn will rule out dangerous causes of your pain such as kidney infection. Unfortunately some conditions like endometriosis can only be diagnosed by surgery. If the pain is not bad enough then surgery may not be in your best interest. If you still have symptoms, keep seeing your doctor until you are happy with the long term plan. ...Read more
