Avatar n tn Focal area of bowel wall thickening in the ascending colon (series 2 image 50) could be physiologic, although colonic neoplasm cannot be excluded from this appearance. This finding was not present on the previous exam.

For example, the largest mesenteric lymph node in the right lower quadrant (series 3 image 27) measures 1.
Avatar f tn Hi, Colonic inertia is a condition in which the nerves and/or muscles of the colon do not work normally. As a result, the contents of the colon are not propelled through the colon normally. The cause of colonic inertia is unclear. In some cases, the muscles or nerves of the colon are diseased. Colonic inertia also may be the result of the chronic use of stimulant laxatives .Please consult a neurologist for the review of the EMG results and get a nerve conduction study done .
Avatar n tn There is no clear cut association between hysterectomy and colonic inertia. Some of the causes of colonic inertia include inadequate water intake, inadequate fiber, lack of physical activity, increased stress, hypothyroidism, eating large amounts of dairy products, irritable bowel syndrome, neurological diseases and depression. Avoiding dairy products, warm liquids, fruits and vegetables and drnking plenty of water helps.
Avatar f tn I have been told that regular colonic hydration is good for cleaning out the diverticula in a person with diverticulosis. How accurate is that? I have been wanting to go to a CCT, but was worried about it. Has anyone out there tried it? What was it like, and did it work?

After having some real problems with constipation in early February, I have been diagnosed with pelvic organ prolapse including a moderately large rectocele and enterocele seen during defecography.

7485794 tn?1391369301 Neoplasm means is an abnormal mass of tissue. Follicular neoplasm is a "grey zone" in thyroid FNA cytology because of overlapping features between benign and malignant follicular lesions. The reported incidence of malignancy in follicular neoplasm is 10 to 30%. The percentage is higher at 68 to 78% with very focal and subtle nuclear atypia commonly seen in papillary carcinoma.
Avatar n tn The term "neoplasm" was used in CT description? Neoplasm means cancer. Any statistics won't be of any help here. Beside cancer, it could be a cyst, but cysts would have defined border. More specific tests exist to prove a pancreatic cancer, and there are more stages of a cancer. Early treatment has better results.

Avatar n tn Thanks again. How is she now? Did only colonic irrigation helped her and how many sessions she underwent?
Avatar n tn Not sure why you think you have colonic inertia because your doctor had a hard time performing a colonoscopy. Colonic inertia is extremely rare and indicates that the muscles of the colon do not function. It has nothing to do with the shape of the colon. You also do not develop this as a complication of surgery. I have colonic inertia and had my colon removed because of this 6 days ago. I am sitting in my hospital room as we speak.

Avatar n tn I am unsure if i have IBS but closest topic. I had a colonic irrigation last week to help reduce bloating, it wasnt serious bloating i just thought that i might acheive a flatter stomach. However immediately after the colonic irrigation and ever since i have experienced severe bloating, especially after a meal, i look pregnant and it feels hard with such pressure that it is very uncomfortable to move and i feel like i have to take deeper breaths.
Avatar m tn There were presence of multiple patchy areas of ulceration seen in the colonic mucosa from rectum to hepatic flexure. The ulcers size ranged from 3 to 7 mm with surrounding erythema. The ascending colon, caecum, IC valve and 10 cm of the terminal ileum were normal. Impression - Infective colitis. The doctor also did biopsy & sent the sample to histopathology department for further analysis. Will get the reports in 4-5 working days. Once I get it, will update.
Avatar n tn Polyp is usually a mushroom like mass growing from the colonic wall and bulging into the colon lumen. Histological examination will probably be made and then it will be said if polyps were cancerous or not. In diverticulosis small pouches bulge out from the colonic wall. They by themselves are not harmful but may cause constipation and may get inflammed (diverticulitis). So, it depends on your symptoms and on what exactly will be the result of investigation of polyps.
Avatar n tn My doctor called yesterday and said the fine needle biopsy revealed a suspicious follicular neoplasm on my thyroid. She want to do surgical pathology and remove the lesion and the thyroid lobe where the lesion is. Seems kind of drastic, especially if there's no confirmation at this point that the lesion is cancer. Can anyone help me understand this?

I heard that is a risk factor. That you can get the surgery but there might be a chance you will have constipation again one day.
