What Does Kidney Cancer Look Like On An Mri Scan
Recently been told I have localised prostrate cancer gleeson scale of 6%.I have just had a MRI scan. My consultant phoned mesomething on kidney+hip?
Reason for Gleason: The gleason score helps predict the current state of cancer and success at treatment. It is based on grade or aggressiveness of the tumor. It generally consists of two scores, primary and secondary, with the first carrying more weight. In general a score (sum) of 6 is considered a low grade tumor. The findings on an MRI may represent something unrelated. Speak to your physician for details. ...Read more
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
If somebody had kidney cancer can doctors tell what stage it's in by doing an MRI or cat scan on the patient?
Imaging good info: You want to know if imaging studies like ct scan or MRI will help determine the stage in renal cancer. You will get good infrmation from imaging and the staging will be estimated. If the renal cancer extends into the inferior venae cavae or to the right atrium it can be detected by imaging studies. Surgery will confirm the clinical staging. Be well and I wish you the best. ...Read more
I have had kidney cancer in the past. An MRI reported fattyliver, 6 months ago. A recent MRI reported 3 lesions, possible focal nodular hyperplasia. Could it be cancer?
Unclear: Focal nodular hyperplasia (fnh) is the 2nd most common benign liver tumor after hemangioma. Distinction between fnh and other liver lesions such as hypervascular metastases (given your history) is critical to ensure proper treatment! Mr imaging allows reliable distinction of fnh from other liver lesions in most cases. In addition the availability of prior MRI comparison exam is also very helpful. ...Read more
My 7 year old has been vomiting and bad belly button pain on and off for 6 months ultrasound shows swollen kidney but ct shows nothing should I do a MRI and would a ct show kidney cancer thanks?

Kidney cancer should I have surgery without a biopsy? The doctor recently found a growth on my kidney. I had an mri, cat, blood test and chest x-ray. No blood or protein in urine. The doctor wants to do surgery and remove all of the kidney as well. I've p
Biopsies are not often used to diagnose kidney tumors. The imaging studies you underwent (ct scan and mri) can provide sufficient information for a surgeon to decide if an operation is needed.
A ct scan is one of the most useful imaging studies for detected kiney tumors because it gives the surgeon detailed/precise information in terms of size, location and shape of the tumor. A ct scan can also help to determine if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. An MRI provides detailed images of the soft tissue and vessels in the body and can also be helpful in determining if the cancer has spread.
Biopsies are only done on kidney tumors if the information provided in a ct scan was inconclusive. Your surgeon has enough information from the imaging studies to make valid recommendations for surgery. ...Read more
Does mri scan for thoracic spine have any side effect (no metal in body) And does mri may cause cancer?
My MRI scan returned ok on the spinal cord & ultrascan clear on kidneys - pain in left side around kidney - my bowel is to be checked. What else?
I hav chronic pain in my right kidney. It makes my sick and sometimes I can't move. Mri scan showed the tube leading from my. Kidney is enlarged. Why?
Less tha an hour: And probably more like 30 -40 minutes, maybe not even this long. I think it has to do with how new the machine is. Some very new machines have faster acquisition times. The radiologist should be able to provide a more exact answer as to the length of time for this imaging test. ...Read more
I have been diagnosed as having haemangioma but the report says it's not clearly identified (in the T2 weighted images of the MRI scan).Is it cancer?
Not cancer: Hemangioma is not a cancer. It is a benign mass and relatively common. Small hemangiomas cause no symptoms and require no treatment. If the definite diagnosis has already been made, whether or not the hemangioma is clearly identified on a particular MRI sequence probably doesn't matter. Some physicians will do follow up imaging in 6-12 months, ultrasound is easiest for this purpose. ...Read more

Will an MRI scan show up any form of cancer, bacterial or viral infection? Mri - brain, spine & pelvis. Had pnuemonia. Can't find infection. Autoimmu?
It depends: Kidney cancer at a later age like in your mother's case is more likely to be sporadic than familial. Other factors to consider include asking if anybody else in your family has a history of cancer including kidney cancer. If nobody else has a history, I would recommend your routine yearly doctor visits, screening tests, etc. Yearly cts would be most likely be overkill. ...Read more

I have had kidney cancer. I just got my CT scan back and they report a lesion on my right ilium bone possible a bone island. Could this be cancer?
Possibly: Bone is a relatively common site of spread of kidney cancer. The odds that this is true in your case depend on the stage and grade of your original cancer and the radiographic appearance. If the radiologist described it as a bone island that makes it less likely that it is cancer. Discussing this with your doctor is a good idea, and the need for a biopsy or other further testing can be determined. ...Read more
I had kidney cancer and now have pain in my right hip area and going down the right side of my bottom CT scan show a lesion in the right medial ilium?
Further testing: More detailed imaging may be helpful and possibly a biopsy of the area to determine the exact cause of pain. In cases of isolated bony metastasis, focused radiation therapy can provide significant relief from pain. Other therapies may be available as well depending on your particular situation, but it is certainly possible that'll none of this is cancer related. Good luck and keep in touch! ...Read more
Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more
Hypernephroma has become an outdated term for cancerous change of filtrating tubules of kidneys and has bee replaced by renal cell carcinoma; literally, it denotes "overgrowth of kidney cells".
