How do you know?: How do you know that you have a malignant neoplasm? In any case, start with a primary care provider you can make an assessment and the two of you together can decide, if seeing a specialist is warranted.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.

Neoplasms (Definition)

In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more

Tsh level 5.58, no symptoms, u/s found 1cm subtle hypoechoic nodule w/increased peripheral vascularity. Pcp ordered rai uptake scan before fna. Why?

Tsh level 5.58, no symptoms, u/s found 1cm subtle hypoechoic nodule w/increased peripheral vascularity. Pcp ordered rai uptake scan before fna. Why?

I have no idea: Hi. It's not a hyperactive nodule...we know that from the TSH. I'd go straight to an FNA. The scan will show a "cold" nodule, which we already know it is, and will not help differentiate benign from cancer. FNA cytology (hopefully with gene testing) is all you need at this point. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a 9mm hyper vascular lesion on my liver. My blood work is totally normal, I have no symptoms. Should I be concerned?

Liver lesions: It sounds like this was an "incidental" discovery when you had a scan for some unrelated matter. In your age group, nodular hyperplasia, adenoma and benign vascular tumors would be common. That size probably does warrant some action, so don't just ignore this. While unlikely to be malignant, it's best not to wait till its bigger. ...Read more

Had a mir and the result letter I recieved back said I had a small vascular abnormality. What are the symptoms should I be concerned the doctor doesn't seem concerned. But I have some weird feelings in my head.

Had a mir and the result letter I recieved back said I had a small vascular abnormality. What are the symptoms should I be concerned the doctor doesn't seem concerned. But I have some weird feelings in my head.

"Vascular: "vascular abnormality" is a pretty vague phrase that can mean a lot of different things. Some vascular abnormalities need to be fixed but many don't. Also, a vascular lesion inside the skull has different risks and treatment options than one outside the skull.

As far as the symptoms that might be caused: it really depends what the lesion is and where. Most cause no symptoms unless they bleed. Others might cause ringing in the ears, bulging of an eye, or neurological changes like numbness, problems with hearing, vision, or balance, or even seizures.

Whomever ordered the MRI should be willing to discuss these issues with you. If he or she can't or won't, make an appointment with a neurologist and get him or her a copy of the mri. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of a yeast infection spreading all over your body? I have chronic yeast infections as well as tena vascular. I cant spell it. Anyways help..

Doesn't happen: Genital area yeast infections never "spread all over the body". It will remain localized to your genital area. I think you're the same person who asked about this before. I still urge you to work with your doctor. If the diagnosis is correct, all yeast infections, no matter how chronic, can be cleared with treatment. ...Read more

Are there specific symptoms from renal vascular calcification in bilateral kidneys.

No, usually...: Seeing renal vascular calcification is not uncommon and usually an incidental finding on imaging studies for other causes such as hematuria, kidney infection, stones, etc.. Of course, such patient needs to look into if having similar calcification in other arteries like aorta, since it is merely a part of systemic vascular disease. Besides, kidney function and size have to be watched and.... ...Read more

Am I having skipped heartbeats? : it feels as though someone is 'squeezing' my heart - much like a sponge. I get them after I eating mostly. I don't feel- short of breath dizzy or nauseous how do I know whether these are vascular symptoms or just somet

Could be: If your squeezing symptom lasts just a second and then goes away, it could be from a skipped, or, more likely, an extra heartbeat. If the squeezing is constant for more than a few seconds, it is less likely due to extra heartbeats. Chest symptoms that are very brief (seconds) are only very rarely life threatening. ...Read more
