What's the difference between a hemangioma and hepatic adenoma?

Benign disease: The hepatic adenoma is estrogen sensitive and can grow substantially; the hemangioma is a collection of blood vessels which can proliferate under hormonal influence, estrogen, again.

My hepatic adenoma was biopsied in 2010. F/u scans show three new lesions. Should i in my new state and doc ask for a new bx? Has grown.

Yes, you should: Increase in size and or appearance of new lesions is worrisome. You need to find out what it is that is growing. A biopsy is the only way to be sure that it is not a cancer. So get it checked out soon. ...Read more

What can cause Diverticulitis, liver hepatic adenoma, rectal polyps and ovarian hemmoragic cysts.

Separate problems: There is no particular cause for any of these, and certainly no single thing that causes them all. These are separate problems, which I assume were detected by some sort of abdominal imaging, probably a CT scan or MRI. Speak with the doctor who ordered the test and take it from there. ...Read more

In my recent ct results. 1.6cm renal adenoma(in previous ct it was adrenal adenoma)thickening of right adrenal and hepatic steatosis. prognosis?

?Typo: It sounds like there might be a typographical error in the report. An adrenal adenoma(which is benign) does not go away or turn into a renal adenoma. Moreover, a renal adenoma cannot be diagnosed by CT, it would require a biopsy to establish that. Have your doctor review the report for accuracy. ...Read more

I think my tubular adenoma tumor is back and i want to know what the symptoms would be.

I think my tubular adenoma tumor is back and i want to know what the symptoms would be.

Bleeding: Really, the only sign you would have would be some blood in the stool, but if it were a massively large adenoma, then you could have symptoms typical of bowel obstruction, such as bloating, cramping, and emesis. I doubt this would occur. Good luck. ...Read more

I was wondering what are the signs and symptoms of pituitary adenoma?

I was wondering what are the signs and symptoms of pituitary adenoma?

Secreting vs non: This would depend on if the tumor is secreting vs. Non-secreting. If secreting: prolactinoma-infertility and lactation, growth hormone-hypertension, diabetes, acromegaly, acth-excessive cortisol leading to hypertension, weight gain. If non-secreting tumor, there are usually problems from compression of local structures-vision: loss of peripheral vision; hormones: loss of sex hormones. ...Read more

Could symptoms of a pituitary adenoma come back after a few years after taking medicine to stop symptoms?

Pituitary adenoma: Hi. I hate to guess, but we're given no information. Statistically, the most likely thing you're talking about is a prolactinoma treated with cabergoline that went into remission and the cabergoline was then stopped. Yes, hyperprolactinemia can recur in this case. ...Read more

Would more that just height growth be seen if I have poss pituitary adenoma? I have no other sumptoms or phys changes. 2 MRIs showed normal pituitary.

Acromegaly: A pituitary adenoma that secretes excess growth hormone does not cause increase in height in an adult who has already completed growth phase (after the growth plates fuse). Instead, growth hormone causes thickening of the bones, which leads to increases in glove and shoe size, and characteristic coarsening of the facial features. A pituitary adenoma that causes this would be visible on MRI ...Read more

I have a pituitary adenoma and several weird symptoms that no doc can explain. They run tests that all come back "low normal" then ignore me . Help.

Unsure: Pituitary tumors can be found1. Incidentally - causing no symptoms, 2. Function inning - producing an abnormal amount of a hormone, 3. Low pituitary function - decreased amount of hormonal production by the pituitary due to mass effect from the tumor, 4. Mass effect on optic nerves - large enough to compress the optic nerves and affect vision. The pituitary tumor may be present and cause no trouble. ...Read more
