Are these dimensions normal thyroid size? Right thyroid lobe: sagittal 59mm x trans. 16mm x ap 13 mm; left thyroid love: 49mm x 13mm x 12mm
Hard to say: There are no consistent standards for the size of a normal thyroid on ultrasound, as there is a lot of variation in how one measures the size. Nevertheless the length of your thyroid is somewhat larger than most people. The volume is more important, but this is hard to estimate from simple dimensions. Overall size is not important, function is (tsh, free t4). ...Read more

Ap &transverse diameter are these basically same size?
Yes: The slight variation in size of the liver cysts can be explained by differences in imaging modality. Ultrasound differs from cross-sectional imaging, such as MRI or CT scans by the nature of the test and operator dependency in ultrasonography. More importantly, as long as these remain simple liver cysts, there is no need for intervention. ...Read more

This will give followup imaging information without additional radiation exposure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had l spine xray and CT scan for kidney stones, all clear. Low back pain..Would l spine xray have shown lower back tumor? No stones, uti, etc.
No: An x-ray of the lumbar spine would predominantly show only bone. In general, an x-ray is not a very sensitive test to detect the specific cause of back pain in most patients. Consider requesting an MRI which shows the bone, but also shows the nerves, discs, and other soft tissues of the back and is therefore much more sensitive than an x-ray. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

If you are taller and slimmer, you are less likely. ...Read more
Have 5mm fat on ovary 2 yrs no growth now same ovary 3mm one both non vascular cancer? Very scared
Fat = dermoid: Most of the time, fat on an ovarian cyst implies that you have a dermoid cyst or mature teratoma. These are not cancer. I wasn't sure what you meant by '3mm one both non- vascular'. Findings on ultrasound which suggest ovarian cancer are: wall thickness > 3mm, papillations, mural nodularity, septations and solid masses or masses with solid components. These are most concerning. ...Read more
