If ultrasound identified mass near intestines/right abdomen, would it tell u if it was solid?  If so is tumor only solid mass that can b found in area

Seek a better test: Abdomen is better visualized with a ct scan or MRI of the abdomen. Ultrasound is a good screen and is useful when it shows no abnormalities. But it does have high false positives ...So i would advise you to go see your doctor for further evaluation in order to confirm if you indeed have a tumor or was this just a false alarm. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

Which is better for detecting ovarian tumors ultrasound or cat scan, my pelvic ultrasound said solid mass, CT said no mass?

Which is better for detecting ovarian tumors ultrasound or cat scan, my pelvic ultrasound said solid mass, CT said no mass?

Complimentary: Ct ; ultasound are complimentary imaging modalities. For smaller masses in appropriate location ultrasound may have an advantage especially if done transvaginally. For larger masses ct may have the advantage of not being blocked by bowel gas and being less degraded by large body habitus. More specific info in your case would be helpful. Size of mass? How was the sono done? Ct with oral and IV cont. ...Read more

3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?

3cm hypoechoic solid vascular thyroid nodule with a cluster of hurthle cells, fna benign, follow up ultrasound now shows microcalcifications. Cancer?

Not necessarily...: The fact that FNA was reported as benign, the nodule is unlikely to be malignant. Small droplets of benign colloid often mimic "microcalcificatins" of papillary tumor, hence caution is advised. I would suggest repeating the FNA, and consider also collecting samples for gene profiling studies, such as, those manufactured by Veracyte and Asuragen (Note:I have no financial/other interest.) ...Read more

Ultrasound: Ultrasound is a simple test to start with. It can evaluate for a cyst or solid nodule. Might still need a mammogram though, if the ultrasound is inconclusive. Could also see a breast specialist doctor for their opinion too. Best thing is to be sure with breast nodules. ...Read more

Ultrasound shows enlarged gland with at least 3 nodules the biggest being 3.6 CM * 3.2cm. the nodule is solid with increased vascularity. Diagnosis?

Ultrasound shows enlarged gland with at least 3 nodules the biggest being 3.6 CM * 3.2cm.  the nodule is solid with increased vascularity. Diagnosis?

Probable Goiter: I assume this is the thyroid gland. Often the the gland enlarges and contains numerous nodules representing various entities. This is referred to as a "Multinodular Goiter" and is usually benign. There may be functional or hormonal abnormalites which can be measured with blood tests. However, each nodule must be inspected individually to ensure it is not cancer. Biopsy may be the only way to tell. ...Read more
