I have been having irregular menstrual bleeding for the past year. Gyn found polyp during pap. Ordered Ultrasound. Please translate this ultrasound report into human language because I don't understand any of it. Thx. EXAMINATION: Ultrasound pelvis. CLINICAL HISTORY: Irregular menstruation with vaginal bleeding.. COMPARISON: 5/30/2008 ultrasound FINDINGS: Transabdominal, transvaginal ultrasound exam of the pelvis. Examination with fluid-filled bladder. Transabdominal: Uterus is homogeneous echotexture. The uterus approximately 7.4 x 3.6 x 4.3 cm sagittal plane. Endometrial thickness of 6.9 mm. Free fluid posterior to the mid body of the uterus is present. Decreased echogenicity left ovary from cyst is present. Left ovary measuring 4.3 x 2.7 x 3 cm. Cyst measuring 3.2 x 1.6 x 2.1 cm. Doppler blood flow to the ovary is present. Right ovary unremarkable for solid or cystic masses from this approach. The right ovary approximating 1.7 x 1.2 x 1.3 cm. Transvaginal: Homogeneous echotexture of the uterine myometrium is present. There is a massive lower uterine signal abutting the N XXXXXXX cavity adjacent to the endocervix. The mass measuring 2 x 1.42 cm. Distortion of the endometrial cavity is present at the lower uterine segment. Right ovary unremarkable for solid or cystic masses. From this approach estimate 2 x 1.2 x 1.3 cm. Doppler blood flow is present. Left ovary measuring 4.2 x 2.9 x 2.6 cm with Doppler blood flow. Hypoechoic complex mass measuring 2.9 x 2.2 x 1.7 cm. IMPRESSION: 1. Lower uterine segment mass is present resulting endometrial distortion. Differential diagnosis to include uterine fibroid with further assessment to exclude remote possibility of a endocervical neoplasm. 2. Complex left ovarian mass with internal echoes with differential diagnosis hemorrhagic cyst, endometrioma. Short-term follow-up evaluation to exclude neoplasm radiology is recommended. The 2008 exam did show a dominant cyst of the left ovary.

I sent you exactly what I have. I copied the exact text. I do not have imaging nor pap test results.

I'm looking for you to translate the info in the report I sent you into laymen's terms.

Brief Answer:
As below

Detailed Answer:
The report shows a mass or a lump near the mouth of the uterus..
This could be a simple or cancerous tumour.
It is difficult to differentiate based on ultrasound.
There is a cyst in the ovary but that is same as previously found and not worrisome.
My recommendation is to go ahead and have an MRI scan done to know further details of the lump.
All the best

Hello, I am 26 weeks pregnant and I have fibroids. I have started to notice blood in my urian. I have had test done for UTI and kidney Stones, both came back that i did not have neither. I was wondering if my fibroids can cause blood to be in the urian?

I have had two recent occasions of urinating myself. I am only 45. I feel the need to go to the bathroom and make a mental note to find a bathroom only to find that it becomes incredibly urgent and I can't move. I then wet myself and I can even be in public . I was just told I have some fibroids - could this be the reason?

I have been having pain in the left abdomen near left side rib cage. I have been having periodic pain in the same location for the past year. I have had MRIs' CAT scans, endoscopy and colonoscopy. The only thing they could find is polyps in the stomach and irritation in the stomach. I have been on Dexilent for a few weeks and thought it was getting better. Then I had the worst bout yet. extreme abdomen pain with 101 fever. I went to the E.R.

and they gave me Cipro and pain relievers and sent me home. I have been having pain now on the left side especially the left side of my head and down the side of my throatand my left eye is really red. No one seems to have answers. I have been to many specialists in Baylor In Houston and all have given up on an answer. I am extremely nausated and having a hard time eating and the pain seems to be radiating down towards the lower left side. 6 months before I had this problem I had my uterus removed due to several fibroids growing larger and painful. Do you have any suggestions of any test that could be ran or what this might be? Thanks so much!

Hi, Ny daughter Paige is now 4, and has had a massive splenomegaly since birth that doctors, paediatricins cannot find a cause for. She had a chronic cough for 3 years, and mucous poos which a natural therapist has succesfullt treated as leaky bowel . She has recently had chronic bleeding nose and her cuts and sores are healing slowly and looking inflamed. her spleen is 21cm and she has occasional hepatomegaly. She has been tested for everything including parasitic involvement. All her siblings are healthy. serology shows that she has had both CMV and Epstein-barr, but the haemotologist says that it is definately not the cause of the biggest spleen he has seen . Ultrasounds show an engorged spleen with no fibroid tissue and no portal flow froblems. She has always had pancytopenia, but lately her white cells have been much lower than usual. She has no autoimmune disorders, thalassemia, TB, Kala azar, or any of the thousand things tested for. She needs help. Thankyou for your time
