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

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)

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

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 shows solid mass on throat, What could this be?

Ultrasound shows solid mass on throat, What could this be?

Depends on where : From the point of view of anatomy where exactly it is will determine what it may be. Certainly a large lymph node may be a good thought . So it depends on what the doctor reading the study says compared to the throat. Best talk to you doctor. Also a CT may be needed to really see what is going on. ...Read more

2 Ultrasounds 4weeks apart on solid lump in fatty tissue,first scan there was no bloodflow to lump second scan shows a bloodflow what does this mean?

2 Ultrasounds 4weeks apart on solid lump in fatty tissue,first scan there was no bloodflow to lump second scan shows a bloodflow what does this mean?

Error, Nothing, Flow: The blood flow analysis depends on the "Doppler signal" that is detected by the ultrasound machine. The technicians may have set the threshholds differently on the 2 images. If so, the same tissue can show a Doppler signal on 1 image & not on the other (tech error). At your age, 4 wks is not enough time for fat to grow new blood vessels; but ONLY a BIOPSY will tell you if it is a tumor/cancer.TTYD ...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?

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

A transvaginal ultrasound was normal and that a 2cm shading on r ovary looked benign as US did not brightly shine on it. How do tumors appear on US?

A transvaginal ultrasound was normal and that a 2cm shading on r ovary looked benign as US did not brightly shine on it. How do tumors appear on US?

Irregular mass: Most ovarian tumors in US are first seen as small cystic lesions. If the cystic component is irregular and there are densities in the cyst, especially if greater than 5 cm., then laparoscopic bx used. If lesion is an irregular mass in the ovary not consistent with the smooth ovary, then bx again is indicated. Often an irregular mass is seen on the surface of the ovary and again bx is indicated. ...Read more

Nonpalpable breast tumor shows up on ultrasound so does that makeprognosis worse?

No: The goal of imaging is to find abnormalities too small to be felt. Generally, early detection of a smaller lesion will allow for a wider range of treatment options and a better prognosis. ...Read more

Breast tumor shows up on ultrasound. Can it be bad if no one had felt it?

Breast tumor shows up on ultrasound. Can it be bad if no one had felt it?

Need bx to be sure: Ultrasound characteristics can suggest benign versus malignant in appearance but the most definitive diagnosis is always made by a pathology evaluation of a tissue sample (core needle biopsy). Ultrasound is an extension of the physical examination allowing one to get additional information about an area palpated or seen on other imaging (i.e. Mmgs, bmri) that may be too small or deep to be felt. ...Read more
