What does my ultrasound test result indicate?
I don't have any pain in my lower back only when something presses up against it. Need change in bowel movement or blood in stool or urine. I don't smoke or drink. I exercise 5 times a week and I am on a strict diet no sugars no breads. I am 6 ft tall weight 198 pounds 6.5% body fat
Lipoma is the most probable reason.
Thank you for the query.
As long as such lump does not grow very fast (in few weeks) there is nothing to be worried about.
In most cases such mass is a benign lipoma.
It can be palpated as a rounded and soft tumor. And in the ultrasound can be seen as a fatty tissue.
I do not think this is a cancer. Removing it is a good idea.
Hope this helps.
Simple removal is tge treatment.
Lipoma is not a cyst. And is seen in the ultrasound as a mass build of fat. Experienced in ultrasound doctor can easily tell if such mass is benign and if its build of fat or similar tissue.
Malignant mass is irregular, infiltrates muscles and other tissues. It grows deeper than under the skin. It can be well seen in the ultrasound.
Sarcoma is what can be in such location. But this is extremely rare in this location.
Simple removal under local anesthesia is the treatment. Such lump is send to the pathologist.
If it is malignant, removal of surrounding tissues and radiotherapy can be done.
But again, I really do not think its malignant.
Thank you again for getting back to me and giving me some reassurance. I appreciate your time. Thank you and have a blessed day.
