Un-diagnosed but worried about symptoms & US results
Hope it is ok I am posting here as I am undiagnosed. I am having a bit of anxiety as I am concerned I have cancer. I have been having symptoms for over a month+ (well since Sept. if you call tachycardia a symptom, but pelvic symptoms since Feb consistently.)
I just had a pelivic ultrasound and have been referred to a gynecologist as a polyp was found and due to my pain.
My symptoms are (fyi I am 46)-
-period has been coming a few days early which is new for me as I have always had a very regular cycle, and often times I have 2-5 days of spotting beforehand and I do have pretty heavy bleeding for a few days and bad cramping (was explained as age related)
-BAD lower pelvic, both sides, and lower back pain, which I thought were my ovaries but ovaries appeared normal on the ultrasound. I get shooting pains on both lower sides, it sometimes feels like my ureters on the left side (or ovaries like I said.) It also at times feels hot and like it's bleeding inside.
-period like cramping even when I don't have my period
-nausea and acid reflux
-tachycardia & hot flashes
-weird feeling like my lymph nodes are itching inside my lower back and pelvis
-blood found in urinalysis
-frequent urination and thirst
The main symptoms are the pain and fatigue, sometimes I cannot get out of bed.
Anyways, I just received my ultrasound report and am concerned with the thickness of the lining and the polyp. I was about mid-cycle when this was done, is this normal thickness for a premenopausal woman? (I did have an ultrasound a few years back and the thickness was 10mm but I seem to recall I was due for my period any day then.)
Also what does it mean that prominent uterine vessels were seen?
I feel with this pain and fatigue that something is definitely going on and am worried. Am I to assume that a biopsy of some sort will want to be done on the polyp? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. How worried should I be? I currently have such bad cramping and pain and hot feeling inside, it feels like I have my period but I don't. Can a polyp cause this?
Here are the results.
TECHNIQUE: Transabdominal and transvaginal imaging was performed.
Uterus: Measures 8.1 x 4.3 x 4.9 cm. Prominent uterine vessels on the left.
Endometrium: Measures up to 1.1 cm in thickness. Ovoid mildly echogenic structure in the endometrial cavity with an apparent stalk and vascularity. This probably represents a polyp and measures 7 x 11 x 18 mm.
Right Ovary: Measures 3.1 x 2.1 x 2.3 cm and appears unremarkable
Right Ovary Blood Flow: Present.
Left Ovary: Measures 2.4 x 1.4 x 1.7 cm and appears unremarkable
Left Ovary Blood Flow: Present.
Free Fluid: no significant free fluid.
IMPRESSION: Probable endometrial 7 x 11 x 18 mm polyp. See above.
