What is the difference between a pelvic exenteration and a pelvic exoneration?

Pelvic exenteration: There is no such thing as a pelvic "exoneration" although some people mispronounce "exenteration" to make it sound similar. A pelvic exenteration is the removal of most or all pelvic structures (bladder, uterus, rectum) for cancer (usually recurrent) in the pelvic organs (most often cervical cancer).

Pelvic exenteration: If you are told you need a pelvic exenteration for ovarian cancer, a gynecologic oncologic would do the surgery. This most likely means that you have disease involving your rectum and that a posterior exenteration (removal of uterus, part of vagina and rectum) is needed to render you disease free at the time of surgery, good luck!

What is the difference between a pelvic MRI with or without contrast? I am having one done without and with contrast, how do you get rid of the dye?

What is the difference between a pelvic MRI with or without contrast? I am having one done without and with contrast, how do you get rid of the dye?

With & without dye: In these studies, "contrast" = dye so that blood vessels and other structures may be more clearly seen. With contrast & without contrast each have their applications -- putting both together will give your doctors the kind of information they need to help you. Your body will naturally excrete the contrast material ("dye") fairly quickly, on its own.

What is the difference between papanicolaou and pelvic test?

What is the difference between papanicolaou and pelvic test?

More info needed: Papanicolaou test is usually called a pap test or pap smear. The test is named for the physician to developed the stain used to see the cells from the cervix. We use the pap smear to screen for cervical cancer because we can see abnormal cells that may become cancer in the future, thus allowing treatment to prevent cancer. "pelvic test" is not a common term, so I am not sure what you refer to. Best.

What is the difference between a papanicolaou test and a pelvic exam?

What is the difference between a papanicolaou test and a pelvic exam?

Great question: The papanicolaou test is a specific test that requires the visualization of the cervix. Cells from the cervix are sampled and screened for cancer potential. While a pelvic exam may include the pap test, the exam itself does not require a pap test. A pelvic includes looking at the genitals inside the vagina and out, as well as feeling the internal organs including uterus and ovaries.

Is there a difference between pelvic cramping and pelvic pain?

Sometimes yes: You can develop cramping at the beginning of a normal menstrual cycle; most women know what this feels like.
