Abdominal ultrasound results, what does this mean?

Simple pancreatic cyst versus pseudocyst versus cystic neoplasm to the tail of pancreas, measures 5mm.  No blood flow to cyst on ultrasound. Should be eval. with CT of abdomen and pancreas.

Mobile stones Cholelithiasis and thickened gallbladder wall measuring.4 cm, which would suggest chronic cholecystitis.

Hyperechoic, sperical componet measuring 8mm to mid pole. Nonobstructive calculous to left mid pole of left kidney.

(1) You have an apparent cyst in your pancreas which will require further imaging (CT scan) in order to determine what exactly it is. However, there is no new blood flow to the cyst which rules out pancreatic cancer.

(2) You have gallstones that are currently inside your gallbladder. In addition, the inside lining of your gallbladder is inflammed because your problem with gallstones is ongoing (chronic), and you have either had them in the past and/or will continue to have them in the future if your gallbladder is not removed.

(3) You have a kidney stone in your left kidney. The "pole" business defines where exactly in the kidney the stone is. It appears to be asymptomatic and is *not* blocking any vital structures  that transport urine.

Hope that helps ;)
