Colonic epithelial cells

Common Questions and Answers about Colonic epithelial cells


Avatar n tn What exactly does it mean when one is told one has "clusters of atypical epithelial cells?" The needle aspiration of a fluid filled cyst appeared to be successful. Who knows where this was anymore? Yet I am told I should have a surgeon do a biopsy now. Is this standard practice? What is the likely outcome of having this result from a needle aspiration of a fluid filled cyst?
Avatar m tn The nucleated cells found in urine are typically white blood cells and epithelial cells. There are large differences between the amount of epithelial cells present in male and female urine. Females are more likely to have a higher number of epithelial cells present in their urine, vaginal cells being the chief contributor." If anything physical could come from accidentally drinking urine, it might be from bacteria, but even that is unlikely.
Avatar f tn My daughter have ben complaining about joint pains and also along with it is her burping problem.The urine test result showed she got some 0-1/hpf pus cells and epithelial cells 0-1/hpf.What does it suggest.
Avatar f tn What is Few Squamous epithelial cells mean? I had lab work done and got results back said i had Few Squamous epithelial cells. My wbc was 75 and was suppoze to be below 29. My rbc was 4 and was suppose to be at 2. The result said its high. A dr assistant called me without knowing my history of stuff said i have a uti. Never mentioned anything about any other results. Is this part of a uti? Or should i b worried and ask the Dr. ?
Avatar n tn in my UTI test comes epithelial cells 2-3/HPF and PUS cells 10-12/HPF WHAT DOES IT MEANS
Avatar f tn negative for malignant cells. bronchial epithelial cells and macrophages. 2) right lower lobe, bronquial brushings: negative for malignant cells. bronchial wpithelial cells with reactive cellular change, rare macrophages and sparse acute and chronic inflammation. 3) negative for malignant cells. bronchial epithelial cells, rare macrophages and sparse acute and chronic inflammation. Tissue submitted 1) bronchial washing 2) brush biopsy, rll 3) brush biopsy, brush tip.
Avatar n tn Epithelial cells line the insides of the lungs, the gastrointestinal tract, the reproductive and urinary tracts, and make up the exocrine and endocrine glands. The outer surface of the cornea is covered with fast-growing, easily-regenerated epithelial cells. Functions of epithelial cells include secretion, absorption, protection, transcellular transport, sensation detection, and selective permeability.
Avatar n tn I had the same diagnosis from my stereotactic core needle biopsy four months ago, and the presence of atypia on a needle biopsy triggers further exploration to be sure that the cells nearby the atypical cells are not cancerous. I was also advised to see a surgeon, and had a wire-guided excisional biopsy to take a closer look at the area -- my surgical results were fortunately benign.
Avatar f tn I had a vaginal culture done to rule out infections and stds. They said everything was negative but I'm confused about what the results say. They don't seem normal but I'm not sure. I'm more concerned about the "rare" things they found and that I have "many" epithelial cells. Please explain.
Avatar m tn Normal results vary from one laboratory to another but it usually is in the 0-5 range. Occasional pus cells and epithelial cells may suggest normal results. Epithelial cells often are present in the urinary sediment. For proper evaluation, it is best that you discuss the results with your attending physician. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn White cells is 3 and the range for normal is 1 - 4.
Avatar n tn healthy red blood cells. These cells are the main transporters of oxygen to organs. If red blood cells are also deficient in hemoglobin, then your body isn't getting enough oxygen. Symptoms of anemia -- like fatigue -- occur because organs aren't getting what they need to function properly. Vitamin-deficiency anemia may occur when vitamin B-12 and folate are deficient. These two vitamins are needed to make red blood cells.
Avatar n tn Right breast says cell rich aspirates, composed of dual population of epithelial and myoepithelial cells seen in baranching monolayered sheets, fronds and as bare nuclei in the background. Many bypolar stromal cells and pink fibroconnective tissue stroma seen. No atypical cells seen. Left says cell-rich aspirate of dual population of epithelial and myoepithelial cells with many bare nuclei in the background.
