MRI of the hip showing ovid focus of fluid signal within left iliopos muscle, T1 hyperintensity showing hemorrhagic products. Please explain?

Had an MRI of my left hip that stated in the results
There is an ovoid focus of fluid signal within the distal left iliopsos muscle just proximal to the tendon insertion which is poorly characterized. There is corresponding T1 hyperintensity which could represent hemorrhagic products. This may represent a intramuscular tear eith associated hemorrhage although the configuration is somewhat atypical of a tear. The patient gives history of prior Melenoma and metas tic Melenoma may also demonstrate T1 hyperintensity.

Welcome at HCM.

If in this case there is recent history of injury then this problem can be due to injury to muscle.In absence of history of injury you should get it completely investigated with help of blood investigation to rule out metastasis.

Hope this will help you.
