232077 tn?1218426943 When I went to my OB/GYN again today he mentioned the same thing about a possible infection. He did a pelvic and rectal exam (fun stuff!) and said he doesn't think I have an ovarian abcess because I would have been in extreme pain when he did the rectal exam. Still I went home and decided to do some research.
Avatar n tn What does this mean in a pelvic MRI? Small pocket of fluid within the dependent portion of the subcutaneous tissues lower back and upper pelvis as well as along the hip flanks.
Avatar n tn The major concern with renal cysts is telling them from more serious diseases, such as polycystic kidney disease, complex cysts, and solid masses (such as a cancer or abscess - a localized walled off infection). Ultrasonography, CT scanning, and/or MRI can be used to help establish the correct diagnosis. There are typical appearances for each of these on those tests, like the CT and ultrasounds that you had. Cystoscopy is not used to follow these.
Avatar n tn IV antibiotics may be needed. Or, even if no abscess was seen on pelvic ultrasound 4 days ago, one could have developed in the meantime. Return to your provider right away. Delayed cure risks infertility, so don't sit on this problem (pun intended).
Avatar m tn A boil, also referred to as a skin abscess, is a localized infection deep in the skin. A boil generally starts as a reddened, tender area. Over time, the area becomes firm and hard. Eventually, the center of the abscess softens and becomes filled with pus. Finally, the pus "forms a head," which can be surgically opened or spontaneously drain out.
Avatar m tn I had a lot of discomfort in my pelvic region throughout the ride. Once I got home I noticed an odd lump around the base of my penis. My left testicle had ascended into the canal. I lightly pressed on the lump and my testicle dropped. For the rest of the night I was uncomfortable and visited the emergency clinic to be sure that I hadn't done any damage. The doctor did a short physical exam, was satisfied, and offered that it may have been a nerve impingement.
4760166 tn?1398360913 Hi guys, This is a question for anyone who has a shunt catheter in their peritoneal cavity. On the 17th of last month (April) I had a lumbar shunt placed for IIH/hydrocephalus. My headaches immediately resolved. But now I'm left with what feels like a runner's stitch and a charlie horse combined in my lower left abdomen. It's a stabbing, cramping pain. I went to the ER ten days out and they did a CT scan. I am adding the results to this post ...
Avatar n tn one in each ovary, measuring 4.2 cm and 4.1 cm, and there is free pelvic fluid in the posterior cul-de-sac. The doctor said these could be enlarged corpus luteum cysts, but that he can't be certain (especially because of their size and because there are two of them -- corpus luteums are typically solo cysts), so I am scheduled to have a 2nd ultrasound in 1 week from now (the 1st ultrasound was 2 months ago). My questions are: * What is the significance of finding free pelvic fluid?

Avatar f tn I was in an accident in 2011 and had to have a total disc replacement c5-6 then pelvic recon. and SI IFUSE done for asymmetry and degenerative SI secondary to horse accident, AS and psoriatic arthritis.

Avatar f tn If a person has endometriosis on the surface of the colon, bowel movements could be associated with pelvic pain. Another possible link could be a fistula or abscess, for example from diverticulitis... but that would have been seen during your colonoscopy and other studies.

1344197 tn?1392822771 Among women, IC is often confused with other causes of chronic pelvic pain such as endometriosis. A study-examining women who had persistent chronic pelvic pain after hysterectomy found 80% to have IC. The cause of interstitial cystitis is unknown but two theories are often proposed.

439980 tn?1206625314 Is there any previous history of trauma in the area? Have you had any previous abdominal or pelvic surgeries before? Is the lump red, painful and are there any associated symptoms like vaginal discharge? Have you had any history of fever or any infections? Some differentials will be a hematoma secondary to trauma, a Bartholin's cyst abscess which may be associated with pain and tenderness and when severe may present with fever. A hernia and vaginal prolapse may also be differentials.
Avatar n tn The origin of pain can either be in the abdominal muscles or inside the abdomen. The place which you describe can become painful in case of an abscess or an infected hematoma in abdominal muscles. It could also be cystitis, urinary tract infection, diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel disease. A urine examination is definitely required. In women it can also be due to uterine fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease or polycystic ovary. Please consult a gynecologist regarding this.
