In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
Posterior lower leg from below gastrocnemius to ankle is bigger than other. Venous + arterial US normal, MRI, normal. Might gadolinium show something?
Several factors: One of the factors is the distribution of the infarct. The arteries of the brain have a very well-defined territory that they supply and venous infarcts may not be isolated to one of those territories. Also, there may be direct or indirect evidence on a noncontrast ct or MRI that suggest occlusion of one of the major venous structures. Clinical history is also considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Score a 3 on Wells Test: (1) Polycythemia Vera; Unilateral calf swelling; Superficial unilateral vein. + Crohns. D-dimer negative. Venogram warranted?
Polycythemia vera verified by second opinion. + Crohn’s. Unilateral calf swelling. Unilateral superficial vein.
D-dimer + US normal. Get venogram?
Difficult to know: Polycythemia vera and Chrons are both risk factors for DVT . Also your sign and symptoms are suspicious for DVT. Venous Doppler US for a single exam may miss small DVT especially in the calf. D dimer if normal pretty sensitive. Many options repeat: Ultrasound and possibly d dimer, venogram [but these are not done much now], follow closely. Recommend close follow up with your doctor/ vein expert. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
