Fatty infiltration of liver just means excess fat deposition in liver. it maybe normal in older patients. Pathologically, it is found in patients with diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, overweight individuals, pregnant ladies, etc. If it is not associated with any other liver findings, it is probably nothing to worry about.

Cholecystolithiasis means stones in the gall bladder. If symptomatic (causing upper abdominal pain) they may need to be removeed and you'll need to consult a surgeon for that. If they're large but asymptomatic, one can leave them alone. However, small stones may cause severe symptoms in future. Also, there is small increase in risk of gall bladder cancer with presence of stones.

Finally, a thickened endometrium is normal in the second half of the menestrual cycle (after about 14 days of menses). It is probably abnormal early in the cycle and in post-menopausal women and in this case, a gynaecologist opinion would be of help.

Hello and welcome to HCM,

The ultrasound report of your abdomen and pelvis reveals:
1. There is fatty change in the liver- Fatty change is due to accumulation of fat in the liver. The factors responsible for fatty infiltration is alcohol intake, malnutrition, starvation, etc. It is a reversible condition. If the cause is removed the changes will revert back to normal.
2. The gall bladder contains stones, this condition is known as cholelithiasis. It is treated by removal of the gall bladder.
3. The endometrium is thickened. Endometrium is the lining of the uterine cavity. To know the cause of endometrial thickening a curetting or a biopsy is required.

Rest of the organs - pancreas, spleen,urinary bledder and ovaries are all within normal limits.

Thanks and take care.

Hi and welcome to HCM.

The common liver disorders is fatty liver which can be found in healthy people, but usually is resulting from elevated blood lipids, overweight and elevated blood sugar. If ultrasounds didnt find any sign of cirrhosis and viral markers are negative then you have no reason to be concerned. YOu should treat it by changing dieatary and lifestyle habbits. Do exercise, avoid alcohol,smoking, fats,fast food and carbonated drinks. Eat more fruit and vegetables, boiled meat and follow some of hepatoprotective diets. Findings usually improves on such measures. If not, then some medicines can be presribed, but I suggest to go step by step. If you dont have any symptoms then this is just slight and reversible liver damage.
There is no correlation to uterus usually.This heterogenous endometrium is a sign fr tisels, it is also usualy finding and indicate small possiblity of enometrila hyperplasia, polyps or cancer. It should be evaluated by curretage if you have some smyptoms such as bleeding or pelvic pain.
Wish you good health.
