Doctor insights on:
Scar: It depends on the context. On a chest x-ray or ct, it probably refers to scar that forms a line or curve on the film. This may indicate prior illness or injury, but is not specific. Fibrosis (scarring) can sometimes limit the function of an organ, but may not be important.
Myoma Fibroids?: There are many options. Hysterectomy is the definitive solution. Myomectomy, magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery (mrgfus or fus) (eg, exablate® 2000), uterine artery embolizaiton, endometrial ablation are other options. There are medical options such as with hormonal therapy. A competent gynecologist should be discuss these options.
Fancy name...: A description for a little bit of scarring following an illness from which you've recovered. I'm sorry the lingo threw you for a loop. Chat with your physician about this if it popped up on a report, and good luck.
Nothing special: probably no big deal,but make sure that the medicines are given,if necessary.also make sure that the breathing is normal
Retroperitoneal Fibr: Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a rare disease, often idiopathic, but drugs, infections malignancies, prior surgeries, radiation therapy, smoking, and asbestos exposure have been implicated. . It is characterized by the presence of inflammatory and fibrous retroperitoneal tissue that often encases the ureters & other abdominal organs. Symptoms include back or flank pain, and decreased kidney function
On the lung?: gosh could be quite a lot for this. If it is stable over years, cancer is MOSTLY ruled out (sometimes cancer can develop in a scar). And lung diseases such as COPD, or other causes of lung hyperinflation cause the bottom to get squished. For that matter obesity can squish them from the other direction!
My fibrosure test came backbut for fibrosis interpretation it says see note and for necroinflammat interp it says see note, why and also says see note?
Talk with your doc: Over 95% of tests are interpretable and allow a diagnosis of fibrosis and liver activity. In less than 5% of cases, likely false positives or false negatives are highlighted. FibroTest has been validated for chronic hepatitis C, chronic hepatitis B, chronic hepatitis C or B with HIV co-infection, alcoholic liver diseases (steatosis and steatohepatitis), and non-alcoholichepatitis
Genetic disorder: It is a genetic disorder characterized by abnormal sodium channels, which affect a great deal of problems including the respiratory and digestive systems. It is most commonly diagnosed in infants failing to gain appropriate weight, and in children who have multiple chronic infections.See 1 more doctor answer
Inherited disease: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that affects the cells lining the lungs, sinuses, intestines, spleen and liver. It prevents chloride ions from crossing the cell membranes properly. This can clog organ ducts. In the lungs, the extra mucus crushes the cilia and leads to more lung infections. Medications can help; in late-stage disease, lung transplantation may be life-saving.
Depends on genes: The risk of acquiring cystic fibrosis (CF) depends on whether the parents of a child are carriers for the gene. It is estimated that about 1 in 20 americans are carriers of the CF gene. In order for a child to acquire the disease, both parents must be carriers. If both parents are carriers, there is then a 25% chance that the child will acquire the disease.See 1 more doctor answer
Cystic fibrosis: CF is a genetic disease that from birth causes the body to produce a thick and sticky mucus. This mucus interferes with the ability to breath and digest food. It is life threatening, but with good management people can live into their 40s and beyond with it.
Chronic scarring: Idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis is a chronic non-specific inflammation of the retroperitoneum, which can entrap and obstruct important structures, notably the ureters. The average age of diagnosis is about 55 years and the male:female ratio was 3:1. Options for treatment include corticosteroids, other immunosuppressive and hormonal treatment (such as tamoxifen), as well as surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
Autosomal recessive.: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is not sex-linked, but autosomal recessive. That means both parents can be silent carriers--totally unaware--then each passes down this recessive (inactive) gene to their child. This child develops CF because both copies of the formerly inactive gene (1 from each parent) now have no genetic "brake" (normal dominant gene) to prevent the CF gene from expressing itself.
