Can anyone tell me about my abnormal CT scan ?

I was in Er last night and had an abdominal CT scan which showed an enlarged uterus and cervix (thickening?) and cysts on my ovaries. Also, a high D-dimer and heterogeneous signal intensity throughout bone marrow, increasing red marrow production. Any idea what all this could mean? I can t even get an appt with gyn until late next week.

enlarged and bulky uterus and ovarian cysts are common in women and many a times it is non cancerous . the exact diagnosis of cancer can be made from biopsy only. in the mean time you are advised to start herbal medicines ashoka arisht mixed with dashmoola arisht. 2 tsf each mixed with equal amount of water. God willing you will improve soon.

Hi ,
An enlarged uterus and thickened Cervix doesn't mean cancer till you do Endometrial biopsy and cervical biopsy to rule out the cancer.Cyst in ovaries can be simple serous cyst or polycystic ovaries , as you have not mentioned your age we can't say what it is.Are there any enlarged lymph nodes ? Regarding bone marrow , only biopsy can confirm the severity of disease so wait till you meet your gynae.Relax and be happy :)

I am scheduled in a few weeks to follow up with my pulmonologist but I m scared. I had an abnormal chest CT about 8 months ago and it showed a few Bullae on my upper right lung. He said beginnings of emphysyma. Also, my left lower lung shows scarring/nodule (granuloma) from histoplasmosis. I used to live in Ohio Valley when I was young. Doctor thought everything was benign and not to worry and to have another CT in 6 months to compare. Since that time he retired and I m going to another doctor in a few weeks to follow up. My regular doctor had to order CT and I had that done about 3 weeks ago and am awaiting definitive results. They would only tell me that scarring appears the same but they mentioned in right lung opacities. Is that the emphsyma or something else entirely like cancer? I am really worried and no one will help me any sooner with diagnosis until info in a few weeks. They didn t give me any specifics about opacities. Any info you can help me with would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. I m 45 years old by the way, female, and history of smoking and Im trying to quit.

I am a renal transplant patient. Surgery done 6 months back. After transplatation I used to take immuno suppresents like Pangraf, Cellcept and Prednisolon. Immediate after surgery my S.Creatin levels were 1.4, 1.3, 1.2 then 1.5 etc..After one month of when I checked my Tac level it was very high ie, 14.4. Then Pangraf dosage reduced for next one month.But there was no significant reduction in Creatin and then checked Tac level it shows 14.1. At that time S.Creatin was 1.7.Then stopped Pangraf and started Certican .25. A sudden increase in S.creatin and it became 2.6. My Biopsy shows ATN+ and other readings were quite normal. My Potassium and RBS are quite normal. Then started Neoral 50mg and tried 25mg, but again S.creatin level gets increased and now it is 3.6. My Doppler test parameters are normal. What would be the remedy on this problem??How it is happened like this? My donor is my brother. I am 42 Years old.
