What does an ultra sound that says normal uterus but very heterogeneous with a few poorly defined fibroids mean?

What does an ultra sound that says normal uterus but very heterogeneous with a few poorly defined fibroids mean?

May mean adenomyosis: Difficult to say for sure. You should discuss findings with your doctor. I often see pelvic ultrasounds describe significant heterogeneity which is due to adenomyosis but called fibroids instead. They are both benign conditions and both cause similar symptoms (and you could even have both). A pelvic MRI is a good way to answer this but first talk to your doctor to explain the results. ...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

Normal pap but ultrasound shoes uterine thickening with polyp?

Normal pap but ultrasound shoes uterine thickening with polyp?

Pap smears: Pap smears allow pathologists to evaluate cells from the cervix (the outside or ectocervix and inside or endocervix). Most of the time we do not find cells from the endometrial cavity in the test slide because the pap smear collection brush should not go into the endometrium. Additional biopsies are required to evaluate endometrial pathology. ...Read more

What does it mean to have endometrial cells on the uterine lining? I am 45 and had just finished my cycle when I had ultrasound and pap normal

See below: Endometrial cells are what make up the uterine lining, so this is a normal comment. If on the other hand, you are having abnormal bleeding (as a reason for the ultrasound that you had performed) and there are endometrial cells on a pap smear, then you definitely need further evaluation of the uterine lining to rule out pre-cancerous changes called hyperplasia. ...Read more

If it was done for GYN reasons, e.g. irregular bleeding or untimely bleeding, then it depends on what your normal situation is. Are you on birth control pills or implants? Do you have an IUD or planning on one? These measurements can be normal in the right setting, or not. ...Read more

I just had a baby 3 weeks ago my pain is getting worse now. Had ultrasound done and had scar tissue on my uterus is sharp shooting pains normal?

Yes: As long as you have had an ultrasound, the likelihood of a more serious condition causing the pain is unlikely. Scar tissue typically forms actively for 3-6 weeks after injury subsiding thereafter. If the gets worse or does not subside after 6 weeks I would recommend a repeat ultrasound to check on status if scar tissue or other conditions causing the pain. ...Read more
