Do you think it's endometriosis as my ultrasound came back negative ?

Do you think it's endometriosis as my ultrasound came back negative 
?

No context;can't say: An ultrasound (US) is NOT the test of choice to diagnose endometriosis. US is used to diagnose uterine fibroids and/or cysts, & its accuracy depends on the size of the fibroid/cyst under question. Endometriosis (uterine tissue outside the uterus) may only be a few cell layers thin, so ultrasound frequently will not detect it. Discuss symptoms on HealthTap Prime or TTYD. Meanwhile, upload US report ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

I had both the same day, and the mammogram come back normal, but the ultrasound came back abnormal? Which one is more accurate?

I had both the same day, and the mammogram come back normal,  but the ultrasound came back abnormal? Which one is more accurate?

Different: Mammogram and ultrasound look at different qualities. Mammogram is good at seeing tissue that is more dense than surrounding tissue and for calcifications. Ultrasound is good at seeing the whether those tissues are solid or fluid-filled or both. The two together, in addition to the physician's exam, help to create a more complete picture. Trust in your doctor to interpret these findings for you. ...Read more

The results of ultrasound came back I have two large cysts on right ovary now what happens?

The results of ultrasound came back I have two large cysts on right ovary now what happens?

Depends: If you are having severe pain, the cysts probably need to be removed. If your symptoms are mild, it may be reasonable to manage with observation and recheck the sonogram in 4 to 6 weeks. An ovarian cyst up to 8 centimeters in diameter is considered in the normal range and if it is related to ovulation (most are) it will usually go away on its own. ...Read more

My nuchal ultrasound came back as a measurement of 2.1mm of the neck at 13w2d. Is this bad/?

It's average/normal: An ultrasound is often done at the end of the 1st trimester, between 11 and 14 weeks, to assess thickness of fluid which has collected at the nape of the fetal neck. Your result is normal. Fetuses with some chromosomal abnormalities including Down Syndrome have greater nuchal thicknesses. This ultrasound can also help assess the age of the fetus. Good luck! ...Read more

Had PID for two months. Ultrasound came back normal. Is it possible that I'm infertile?

Yes, it is.: Ultrasound cannot see scar tissue, or "adhesions". A hysterosalpingogram (HSG) is an X-ray procedure where dye is injected into the uterus through the cervix. It can identify scar tissue inside the uterine cavity and diagnose "blocked tubes", or "tubal occlusion". ...Read more

Ultrasound came back endometrial stripe abnormally slightly thickened (endo hyperplesia possible) but i could possibly be preg Could this be why?

Ultrasound came back endometrial stripe abnormally slightly thickened  (endo hyperplesia possible) but i could possibly be preg Could this be why?

Could be . . or not: . . . the endometrial stripe, measured by ultrasound is a reflection of ESTROGEN'S effect on the lining of your uterus. At your young age, your endometrial thickness will increase and decrease in relation to how your own estrogen levels change. It is MOST useful as a way to evaluate POST-Menapausal vaginal bleeding-since the endometrial stripe should always be thin. ...Read more

Ultrasound came back good but I feel this pinch like pain on the cord that goes to my tetes and sometimes I have to turn my tetes in order for that pinch like pain to go away the doctor said it wasn't torsion so what can it be?

Many possibilities: It could be an inflammatory condition called epididymitis. Could also be a hernia. I would recommend considering a urology consultation for a more complete evaluation. If it's not torsion however, that is a good thing. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I have had pain in my right calf, just below the large muscle for a week or so. Little redness, ultrasound came back clear. What is causing this?

A CA 125: Test should never be ordered out of the blue, especially in a young woman with no cancer history. It increases the cost of health care, leads to unnecessary testing and worry. Despite good intent, this is bad practice. ...Read more

Hi, My ovaries are hurting had a ultrasound and the the transvaginal ultrasound came back normal but im still in pain why?

Hi,     My ovaries are hurting had a ultrasound and the the transvaginal ultrasound came back normal but im still in pain why?

Source Presumptive: & visualized in mind. Imaging exams do Not show pain or origin. However, ovaries are cystic (eggs develop in & are shed from cysts) & if no cysts (not likely age 19 if menstruating) then unlikely pain from ovaries. Could be related to any of many sources in area, including: small bowel, colon, appendix, bladder, endometriosis, etc. Emotions & past experiences commonly play a big yet hidden role. ...Read more

My  leg been hurting for 3 weeks from my calf up ..... 2 ultrasounds came back negative for dvt .. im worried are these test pretty accurate ? Help

They are: They are highly accurate for detecting a blood clot in the leg, 97% accurate by most studies which is excellent. There are many causes of leg pain, and in fact, a clot typically won't cause pain unless the vessel becomes inflamed. A clot in the leg most often manifests as new significant swelling of one leg relative to the other, often after a period of immobilization such as a long flight. ...Read more

Pelvic pain for 4 months. 3 different ultrasounds came back normal. Mri showed cyst over 5cm on both ovaries. Why did they not show up on ultrasound?

Pelvic pain for 4 months. 3 different ultrasounds came back normal. Mri showed cyst over 5cm on both ovaries. Why did they not show up on ultrasound?

Intriguing question.: This is very unusual as ultrasound is excellent at noticing ovarian cysts. If there was time lapsed between u/s and MRI then the cysts could have developed. If both ovaries are situated higher in the pelvis than usual (which would be normal), and if the u/s techs failed to search well, then they could have been missed. Highly unlikely that 3 u/s exams each missed them. New pathology is likely. ...Read more

Just wait until...: Thus far all your gyn-care has been timely adequate, and just wait for the upcoming follow-up for reporting cervical biopsy and counseling for all the findings of all tests which may be meant to your individual condition. This is most logical, and sporadic online opinion may bring some unnecessary confusion, anxiety, & fear. To do well for such, go to http://formefirst.com/onDealSickness.html. ...Read more
