What is large mixed echogenic mass?

What is large mixed echogenic mass?

Difficult to say: Sounds like an ultrasound report maybe. It may mean that there is a mass with some solid and some cystic (fluid-filled component). It depends on the modality of the test (ultrasound or ct) and the location as to the diagnostic significance. Please discuss with the doctor who ordered the test and maybe resubmit this question and include more relevant information to get a good answer. ...Read more

My ultrasound report says that there appears ti be a mass with mixed echogenicity near the pouch of douglas, measuring 8.8cm x 5.8 cm x 7.8 cm.

LIVER ENLARGED & ECHOGENIC CONSISTENT WITH NONSPECIFIC HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL DISEASE SUCH AS STEATOSIS. NO FOCAL MASS IS SEEN.Spleen size 16cm??

See doctor: The size of the spleen is of note. This enlarges for many reasons. The liver also enlarged is of concern as well.
