Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
Let me help you by providing details on all the results one by one.
A partially distended gallbladder
means that the gall bladder
is slightly stretched. This could be due to the following reasons:
-Hydrops of the gallbladder (GB)
-Calculus or other forms of obstruction of GB
and a few other reasons. The cause can also be found with an ultrasound
sometimes or a more specific investigation
The "?healed granuloma". A granuloma is formed as a immune response to wall off any substances that are considered foreign. This is normal and need not be a cause of concern.
"mild left hydronephrosis". Hydronephrosis of the left kidney refers to the collection of water in the kidney (left-in your case) causing slight distension and dilation, which is usually caused by the obstruction of the flow of urine from the kidney.
"Thickened urinary bladder
wall" is called cystitis
. This thickening is usually caused by some bacterial infection. Will have to be further investigated.
"Grade 1 prostatomegaly" is the enlargement of the prostate
, which is very mild. This enlargement is not considered abnormal taking into consideration your fathers age. As enlargement of the prostate is an age-related condition, usually seen in patients above the age of 50.
In my opinion the best doctor to visit right now would be a urologist
for a suspected infection; and a gastroenterologist for the GB distension, to rule out any underlying conditions.
