Unremarkable Adnexa Bilaterally
What do thyroid US results mean? Homogeneous echogenicity. Multiple nodules bilaterally, no cysts ID'd. Heterogeneous parenchyma w/bilateral nodules.
Thyroid nodules: Did they measure the largest nodules? Thyroid nodules are fairly common, and the vast majority of them are not cancerous, but if one is above 1 cm, a biopsy may be considered (there's some variation in how thyroid nodules are managed). Some can give you hyperthyroidism. I'd speak with your doctor or an endocrinologist about further steps. ...Read more
What does "heterogenously echogenic lesion within left ovary" mean? Also says "mild heterogeneous posterior acoustic shadowing".
Indeterminate lesion: By far the most common cystic ovarian lesions are benign functional ovarian cysts. When a lesion doesn't follow a definitely benign imaging characteristics (heterogenous or shadowing) on ultrasound, it requires either follow up to resolution and/or further evaluation including MRI in some instances. Without seeing the images, we can only make guess. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Upper quadrant pain. spleen borderline size 12.1cm, mild bilateral pelviectasis of kidneys. minimal R-side hydronephrosis. peripelvic cyst. Normal?

Unremarkable finding. ...Read more
Multiple calcified densities at pelvis could represent phleboliths versus distal uretral lithiasis?
See answer: 1) ~15-20% of males have a varicocele; most common on left side; almost always asymptomatic requiring no treatment; except can be associated with infertility in small % especially if testicular size is small. 2) testicular microlithiasis: ~5% of males; asymptomatic requiring no treatment except regular self-exam for testicular mass because of weak association with testicular cancer. See urologist. ...Read more

Just what it says: Lymph nodes, located where they are supposed to be, visible on the CT scan and at a size that is generally considered normal. Taken out of context, it is impossible to tell you anymore than this. But even in the context of some known disease, these likely mean nothing. ...Read more

Blood tests, physical examination, history, biopsy help. ...Read more
