Question: My 2 year 11 month old daughter went for checkup for a stomach flu/umbilical hernia
. While pedetritian was checking, he noticed a hard lump (feels like a tiny hard ball just under the skin..you can faintly see blue/green bruise
like colour). I felt this approx 3 weeks ago but it felt smaller and less 'hard'. Dr sent for ultrasound
to make sure no strangulation. We have the report, but I have NO IDEA what any of it means!!
Please break down in simple terms for me
Ultrasound report: " Palpable abnormality corresponds to a nonspecific 8x10x5 millimeter hypoechoic to anechoic subcutaneous nodule. It's well defined. No definite hilum is identified to confirm a lymph
node. It is adjacent to a possible umbilical hernia, although that is not clearly visualized on this exam.
