No significant abnormality detected.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

I have gone though the attached reports and would like to offer some information.

The urinalysis shows a few epithelial cells and red blood cells. If contamination is excluded, a watch should be kept on the renal profile. Apart from this, the urinalysis is normal.

Urine culture is sterile. There is no obvious infection to account for the slightly high count of epithelial cells. So, right now there is no impact on the pregnancy or the health of the expectant mother.

Hope your query has been answered. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.

regards,
Shanti.V.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing back.

Since infection has been ruled out through culture test, inflammation and contamination are the other possibilities for the higher cell count in urinalysis. As mentioned earlier, if contamination is excluded, inflammation has to detected, if any. I would suggest a repeat urinalysis after a week or two to compare.

Traces of protein is not to be worried about. There can also be variation from lab to lab. It is physiological during pregnancy and does not impact the kidney.

Hope this helps. Please get back if you need any more information.

My husband is on tpn through a port for 3.5 weeks due to vomitting and other difficulties eating resulting from chemo (ended 4 weeks ago) and radiation(ended 3 weeks ago) for squamous cell carcinoma in base of tongue.

He has been having really bad night sweats lately and when not "flashing" he is really cold all the time. He is infusing the TPN during the day. He is not running a fever. Is it the tpn causing it? What can he do?

He isn't getting sleep he needs. Please advise

On the cytopathology report:
"FNAC from right breast lump,[lower quadrant] yield blood mixed aspirate which on microscopy is scantily cellular and shows occasional clusters of benign ductal epithelial cells with myoepithelial cells. However few loosely cohesive clusters of ductal epithelial cells are also seen showing mild pleomorphism and overlapping of the cells. The background cossists of hemorrhages and necrosis." are mention but what is that and what can I do further
