My test report says: Abnormal exam. There is a small, mild defect in the anterior wall extending through the apex which appears to mostly reverse on rest; the same is true of a small and mild inferior wall defect. Mild diaphragmatic attenuation may accentuate these findings. Further evaluation is recommended.

Not sure what this means.

My wife ( 55 years) recently had incision biopsy of soft tissue ( 2 cm x 1 cm app.) from right mandible and has been diagnosed as Non-Hodgkin s Lymphoma , Follicular, Small Cell Type, Low Grade. . The specimen is now undergoing Immunohistological examination and we are waiting for the report. She has no health problem otherwise except only the swelling of right mandible which has now been removed about 24 days back. he mandible is now perfectly normal. Only yesterday a Doctor checked her and found no abnormality in adjacent glands ( may be connected Lymph nodes).Would you please suggest what may be the deaseas andwhat may be the treatment. Can it be a case Follicular Hypwerplasia which is benign ? With regards B.N.Datta, India, e-mail : YYYY@YYYY

I just received a copy of my two MRIs and I m trying to understand them. What does this mean?MRI OF THE CERVICAL SPINE WITHOUT CONTRAST FINDINGS: There is straightening of the normal cervical lordosis with anatomic alignment. Vertebral body heights are well-maintained. Desiccation and disc height loss throughout the cervical spine, most pronounced at C6-7. No focal worrisome marrow signal abnormality is seen.The cervical spinal cord has a normal course and caliber. No focal cord signal abnormality is seen. No focal mass or fluid collection is seen in the cervical spinal canal. The paraspinal soft tissues are unremarkable. The craniocervical junction is unremarkable.At C2-3 through C4-5, there is no significant abnormality.At C5-6, there is a minimal posterior disk osteophyte complex with minimal uncovertebral and facet joint degenerative changes. There is no significant spinal canal or neural foraminal stenosis. No significant interval change. At C6-7, there is a small posterior disk osteophyte complex with minimal increase in a left paracentral disc extrusion extending into the proximal left neural foramen. The extrusion extends caudally by 3 mm and cephalad by 2 mm. There are minimal uncovertebral and facet joint degenerative changes. There is mild predominantly left-sided spinal canal stenosis with minimal flattening of the ventral spinal cord. There is new moderate left neural foraminal stenosis.At C7-T1, there is no significant abnormality.MRI OF THE BRAIN WITHOUT CONTRAST FINDINGS: The ventricles and sulci are within normal limits. There is no midline shift or mass effect. The basal cisterns are patent. The gray-white matter differentiation is intact. The craniocervical junction is unremarkable. There is no acute intracranial hemorrhage or extra-axial fluid collection identified. The few punctate nonspecific foci of T2/FLAIR hyperintensity are again seen in the cerebral white matter which are unchanged from the previous exam and statistically most likely related to a minimal degree of chronic microvascular ischemic disease. No significant abnormal parenchymal gradient susceptibility. There is no restricted diffusion to suggest acute ischemia/infarction.Trace ethmoid and maxillary mucosal thickening. The remainder of the pelvis visualized paranasal sinuses and mastoid air cells are unremarkable. The expected major intracranial flow voids are present.
