I recently had a CT scan of my pelvis and abdomen due to unexplained swelling of my left leg and foot. Here are my results. I could really use some answers. Here are the areas of concern. Everything else was fine.
**Liver appears normal in size and contour. Prominence of intrahepatic ductal system is visualized of unknown etiology.
**Heterogeneous enhancing left adrenal mass measuring 1.7 x 2.7cm is identified.
**A 2.8 x 3.4cm cystic lesion visualized in the left adnexa. This most likely represents an ovarian cyst.
My concerns are what is meant about the liver? Is that bad? What is heterogeneous regarding the adrenal mass? And could any of this be causing the swelling in my leg?
I just had an abdominal scan yesterday, I also have swelling in my left leg, this has been going on for a year an the dr's don't seem to know exactly why my leg is swollen. I am also having cramps in my abdomen. I am anxious to hear what the anwsers to your questions were.
