Can A Spermatocele Appear As A Solid Mass

Apr 16, 2015

Last week I found a lump in the scrotum, a trip to the ultrasound department came back with a "extratesticular mass 1cm x 1,2cm x 1.2cm, likely to arise from the tail of the epididymis" "The lesion shows slight peripheral vascularity on color doppler" testis and everything else was normal

So I was then referred to a urologist, who said it was best to have it removed and analyzed. So I had it removed yesterday and saw the urologist again today. He told me that he had sent it off to be tested, but felt confident it was a Spermatocele, he even listed it on the discharge sheet as the final diagnosis as a Spermatocele.

But when I read up on Spermatocele, it says it's a fluid filled cyst, so surely it would not have shown as a solid mass on the ultrasound? So I was wondering if it was possible for a Spermatocele to appear as a solid mass on an ultrasound. I will get the results next week either way, but would interested to know if it's likely to be what he said?

Right Ovarian Solid Mass 5 Cm

Just was told via ultrasound that I had a fairly large solid mass by my right ovary.  I was told endometrioma but that I would need to get it removed. CA 125 came in at only 9 so I feel better by that.  I am 46 premenopausal so not sure the accuracy of the CA125 results.  Are all endometriomas benign?  I have not had endometriosis so not sure why this happened? I had seen doctors in past YEAR for digestive and colon issues that came in clear and I take Tylenol a lot for leg and back aches.  I also saw a dermatologist for hair growth and acne.  Were any of these side effects for endometriomas? Ovarian cancer?  For any of you ladies?

Ovarian Cancer :: Solid Mass On Ovary

47 with what looks like a solid mass on my right ovary. Have been seen by a reputable gynecologist who doesn't think it is cancer. 2.9 cm. Took a the CA 125 test all normal. At first he thought it was a hemorrhagic cyst but, it has not changed size and has been there for close to 3 months.

No septations, no blood flow. He think it could be a fibroma but, not sure.

Going for an MRI. Worried. No history of any cancer on any side of my family. None of any kind.

Have been going through menopause for a few years. Periods are changing and some heavier than others. Been skipping off an on for a few years.

Cyst, mass is ovoid in shape.

Any ideas? So worried. But hopeful it is nothing. Hoping to avoid surgery.

Ovarian Cysts :: Solid Mass On Ovary

I went to the dr for a BV infection and 15 days of light bleeding and heavy discharge. I was sent in for an ultrasound and the discovery was:
Thickening of the endometrium with irregular margins measuring at 23 mm at its thickest. also in my right ovary they found a complex solid appearing area measuring 22x17x17mm which they said could reflect a hemmorrhagic cyst though an endometrioma should not be ruled out. I have to wait until March 2nd to see the specialist on this and I must say I am beyond freaking out out on this... any advice

Liver - Cyst With Indeterminate Mass

I had an MRI of abdomen and incidental finding of a simple cyst in the liver and an indeterminate mass in the liver which was recommended to have ultrasound or CT scanning.

As I panicked I went straight to dr and asked for US. The radiologist who did it looked at the original MRI scan and said it was not a good picture. He then did the US and said he could see the cyst but not the " indeterminate mass" and believed it was an artefact shadow. Blood tests were normal. So worried...please help!

I am still worrying and thinking I should get it rechecked? Don't know whether MR was so bad it was movement artefact or should I believe the ultra sound. And since the weekend I have a dull ache near my ribs on my right side and I am thinking pain in the liver. Any advice?

Bone Cancer :: Boney Mass Seems To Be Growing

Last december I noticed a hard, fixed mass in the left side of my neck. After a few visits to my PCM and ENT they attempted to do an ultrasound guided biopsy. The doctor doing it said that he hit what appeared to be a 'bony mass', and could not get sufficient tissue for a biopsy. I was then sent for a CT scan as it appeared that is was slowly growing in size. It appeared to be Exostosis from the proximal end of the left first rib that projects superiorly and slightly anteriorly. I was told that it shouldn't be anything of concern, and I was sent away. Recently I have had issues with pain the the left side of my neck, and I wake at night with numbness in my left arm and hand. It feels as if it has continued to grow in size, and I'm wondering if this is a common issue with Exostosis, or could this in fact be (unlikely I'm sure) a case of Osteosarcoma?

Thyroid Cancer :: Papillary Carcinoma - Hypoechoic Mass Lesion?

A few months back my Dr was checking my thyroid - said it felt soft - sent me for blood tests (MANY hypothyroid symptoms!) (which were ok - TSH only 1.1) and an ultrasound which showed a small 8x7x7mm hypoechoic mass lesion on the lower left lobe of my thyroid. I had a FNA biopsy two weeks ago, today actually, and already found out last Friday that 2 of the 3 pathologists said they can't say what it isn't but to remove it asap and the 3rd said absolutely consistent with papillary carcinoma and to remove it asap as well... so now I am just waiting to have it removed. My Dr absolutely agrees and said get it out! He said depending how bad it is they will decide whether they just remove the mass but will possibly remove the whole thyroid... do they end up doing two surgeries or do they get in there and see its worse then they thought and make the decision right then and there? He explained it is THE cancer to have - although no one wants any cancer... that it is very treatable etc. I'm just stressed and wondering about the whole thing. Is it normal to have normal thyroid levels but have PC?

Digestive Disorders :: Burpy Solid Tummy

I usually have a slow ish bowel movement transit time but it's never caused any dramas. (Every 3 days). Always soft.

Last week I seemed to have a lot of wind and go every day. 4 days ago I felt really sleepy and bloated. Since then I have felt off, slightly nauseous, gassy, burpy and my stomach feels bloated yet solid. I also don't have much appetite. Throw up a tiny bit in my mouth twice. No pain just don't feel right!! I keep expecting a bowel movement to clear whatever the issue is but it doesn't seem to.

Should I be worried.. should I just wait this out? Is it trapped wind or a backlog of something i ate that taking ages to digest. Am going to start taking Inner Health Plus tomorrow. Does twisting torso to left unwind the colon?

Undiagnosed :: Abdominal And Back Pain After Eating Solid Foods

I'm getting a little desperate here. For the last four days every time I attempt to eat solid food within 20 minutes I get extremely severe pain that begins behind the lower section of my rib cage on the left side of my body. The pain continues to increase and within minutes all of the muscles in my mid back start cramping. The symptoms continue for anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours. When they ease, I'm left feeling nauseated and my back feels bruised from the cramping. I can drink liquids without any adverse effect as long as I drink them slowly, but even minimal attempts at solid food cause problems. For instance, I was able to have a bowl of tomato soup eaten slowly over the course of an hour without having problems, and I was able to eat a bowl of chicken broth very slowly without triggering any pain. However, when I attempted to eat a bowl of cream of chicken soup with small chicken chunks in it, I got the pain and back cramps. Even something as simple as a piece of bread or a few bites of saltine crackers is enough to trigger the pain. The doctors have no clue what's wrong. One of them even tried to say it was gas. Umm, no, it's not gas. And I don't think it's an ulcer. I've been on Prilosec for years for GERD, and the pain doesn't feel like it's actually in my stomach. It feels higher and more to the left than where my stomach is. Has anyone else had to deal with anything like this?

Hemorrhoids :: Avoiding Solid Foods - 8 Rubber Band Ligations And Fissurectomy

I have a crazy idea to starve myself of solid food, or food entirely, for a period of time to see if my body can heal itself from internal hemorrhoids. I have had hemorrhoids for three years and they've gotten much worse this past year. I can remember a couple times when I didn't have a BM for a few days and remember feeling normal again.

A bit of background, I am willing to try anything to get back to feeling better. I have had a colonoscopy, five rubber band ligations for a total of eight rubber bands and a fissurectomy/ LIS. I eat 100% my daily value of fiber spread throughout every meal, have a BM twice a day, and have 3-6 sitz baths/ showers a day. I have tried every home-remedy or lifestyle change. Soreness and itching are my primary symptoms, with no blood. Doctors say I have only minor internal hemorrhoids (hemorrhoidectomy not recommended) but the symptoms are persistent and have caused me a significantly lower quality of life. What else is there to try? Would avoiding BM's give the body time to heal or just temporarily make me feel better?
