What Does A Normal Uterine Ultrasound Look Like
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
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
Look here: Look here at transvaginal us image of the uterus: http://www.Conciergeradiologist.Com/ultrasound-images.Html. The uterus is generally harder to visualize in its complete extent on transabdominal images, but this is a close approximation of what is seen in transabdominal ultrasound (transvaginal is the better of the two). ...Read more
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
Mammogram showed macro calcifications but ultrasound is normal. Family history of bc and uterine. Is a biopsy required for further evaluation?
45 years old. Had pap and ultrasound and both were normal but pap came back with endometrial cells on uterine lining. I had just finished cycle.
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
Mammogram shows macro calcifications,& bilateral axillary sub cm nodes. Ultrasound shows normal readings. Strong family history of bc &uterine cancer.
Tested for gene?: Have you been tested for the BRCA gene yet? Breast, ovarian and colon cancer are associated with that gene. Uterine cancer usually will show a thickness in the lining of the uterus (endometrium) on ultrasound or irregular bleeding. Keep seeing your MD for regular evaluations and good luck. ...Read more
I have 2 fundal uterine fibroids each 5 cm in diameter. I got a vaginal ultrasound today to monitor them and I'm having extreme cramping. normal?
Fibroid cramping: The size of the fibroids are immaterial if you are experiencing symptoms like cramping, bleeding or pain. In those cases your MD should discuss with you if the symptoms interfere with your activities of daily living or not to consider a therapeutic approach to the problem or not. ...Read more
