I had an ultrasound down on a mass in my leg and it was found to have an echogenic ring with a hypoechoic center what is this? It is about the size of a pea and is tender to the touch.,
An: An echogenic ring with a hypoechoic center may represent a cyst or abscess. If it is red and tender I would favor abscess (infection) and suggest that you see a surgeon.

An abdominal mass may cause deep vein system problems but not varicose veins. ...Read more

Your question is a: Little vague but I will provide some thoughts. A mass is some sort of accumulation of tissue. It could be infectious, a growth of new tissue/tumor (benign or cancerous), etc. I would think the only reason a person would be admitted to the hospital would be if the mass appeared to be seriously infected and IV antibiotics or a surgical procedure (incision with drainage) were required. Hope helpful:) ...Read more
