Tumor In The Right Apex Of The Lung
What is the probability of survival with a cancerous brain tumor in the front right hand side of the brain?
Depends: On tumor size, cause, associated swelling/bleeding, response to treatment etc. Many variables prevent a definitive response. ...Read more
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Reversible?: It depends. Is the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test.Such things seen on a perfusion scan are often referred to as apical defects.That said, along with other indications, i might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The consequences could not be determined without a cath or ccta. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Englargment of the anterior horn of the right lateral ventricle secondary to the brain volume loss from the resection (meningioma tumor) meaning?

Liner opacity is partially visulized in the periphery of the visualized left lung base, likley part of the major fissure rather than a pulmonary node.
A voluminous lesion in the tail of the pancreas also encompassing the greater curvature of the stomach,12cm tumor.is dangerous fibroscopy?operated?
Cystadenoma: This size lesion expanding to stomach can not be the classic adenoCa. It is probably an islet cell neoplasm or more likely cystadenoma. Since the latter almost always converts to carcinoma, resection of distal pancreas, spenectomy since splenic vein always involved and partial gastectomy must be performed. Laparotomy should be used and depending on path, chemo may be needed PO. ...Read more
Lung plural mass..is that mean it's on the lung surface or part on the mass on the lung and the other part inside the lung ...thank you ?
Pleural mass: A PLEURAL mass means that something of a tumorous nature involves the LINING of the lungs. The mass is BASED in the pleura. It could be extended into the lung. You'd need more information from tests or biopsy procedures to know to what extent spread has occurred if at all. More questions? Contact me at: www.healthtap.com/dr-saghafi ...Read more
My CT showed groundglass densities in the anterior and posterior of the basal segment of the lower right lung. Could this be from a partial collapsed that I had in 1994?
Yes: Although it was 20 years ago, it is possible to have areas of lung that are not fully aerated on a chronic type basis. Often called atelectasis. This could be what is described by "groundglass density" The best way to tell is with direct comparison of the old CT scan to a new one. It is also possible that this area represents a more recent area of pneumonia. See if a comparison can be done. ...Read more
My mother in law went for the heart scan and diagnosed evidence of mildischaemia in the apex and distal inferolateral wall of the left ventricle ?
Bad circulation: Coronary arteries supply blood, and therefore oxygen, to every organ on the body. Coronary ischemia means low blood and oxygen to the heart, which can cause a heart attack. This is usually caused by cholesterol plaque blockage of the coronary arteries. The report says that your mother-in-law probably needs a procedure to open the vessels and restore circulation, like a stent or bypass surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does "opacity in the left lower zone with obliteration of the left costophrenic angle-pleural effusion" mean?
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
