Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

If the lesion is not clearly visible in USG (ultrasound scanning) then they will go for higher resolution scan, that is CT scan... If necessary they can also take Biopsy from the node to make a diagnosis.... Do not worry go ahead...

I am a 27 year old female. I was diagnosed with a kidney stone ( CT scan ) a week and 3 days ago, after experiencing the worst pain of my life. It was at my ureteropelvic junction, a 4-5mm piece of agony. The urologist immediately wanted to operate, I asked him to discharge me and give me a chance to pass it normally without surgical intervention. That night the agony set in again, but this time when I stood up and went to the toilet, the pain subsided enough for me to go back to bed. I have not had pain since then, no problem urinating, no blood in my urine, no fever , basically asymptomatic . Now however I have a constant urge to urinate, with an uncomfortable pressure right by my pelvic bone. I do not struggle to urinate, but it does feel like my bladder is not empty when I get up from the toilet, so I need to go immediately again. This is obviously incredibly irritating. I just want to know whether this is the stone trying to leave my bladder? I still do not have any other symptoms, no pain urinating, no visible blood in my urine, no fever or chills, no pain other than the mild pain in my pelvic region.

Hi Doctor,In my ultrasound scan it was detected i have bulky left ovary with size 4.9x3.7cm with multiple cysts. Few blood hemorrages are also found. Now i am advised to use Contraceptive pills everyday for 3 cycles. This will stop me from conceiving. Is this really to worry ? Since my Right ovary is normal should i wait or start with the medication? Need to mention i have regular periods (27-29 days cycle) with normal flow. I haven t gained weight and no unusual symptoms found.

Im very confused and worried and the consultant in my hospital is not seeing me again for another 6 months eventhough im still experiencing all symptoms.
