Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sure Mark--show me the report
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Mark--first thing here--why did she get the scan?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi mate she has one done every year.
To screen. So no reason.
She is celiac but signed off. All healthy on last blood test
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK--so last year's scan--did it show either the liver spot or the ovary spot?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ahhhh ok.
No this is the first one for screening.
Ie. She hasn't had her liver scanned before
3 years ago she had ovaries screened. Nhs nothing reported.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

Got it

Nothing serious here--the hepatic hemangioma--an extra collection of blood vessels--is nothing dangerous--not cancer and doesn't affect the liver at all. The corpus luteum cyst is from where an egg has exited the ovary and left the cyst behind. Sometimes these bleed a little but this is nothing serious either. Her liver, kidneys, gall bladder, pancreas and kidneys are fine

Thanks your becoming the family doc ūüėälol
No blood testing required ?
The lovely lady at the clinic. Said ovarian screen in 6 months ?
By the way do you want to see the images ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sure--show me the images. No blood tests needed for this. Just standard practice to look at the corpus luteum cyst in 6 months
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. Definitely looks like an hepatic hemangioma and the cyst only has a little blood in it. Everything else looks just fine Mark
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks so just rescan 6 months ? Monitor them ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Just a rescan--like I said, standard operating procedure with an ovarian cyst but nothing to worry about Mark
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks. My friend.
Il get Mandy to rebook a scan in 6 months.
The liver thing will just stay there permanently ?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Sometimes hemagiomas do regress on their own but again it's nothing to worry about Mark

Hi Dr chip. Guess your right again
The headache has eased right off
But when I drop my chin onto my left shoulder sharp pain in neck and back !!
If I drop my head forward relaxed pain in centre of neck and base of head
Pulled muscles ???
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
That has to be muscular Mark--nothing else acts like that
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
drop my head left pain below right shoulder blade drop my head forward pain top of back into neck. !
Is that what causes the headache
I'm guessing something pulls the back muscles then that leads to tension headache.
As I said no bad headache just mild like a band when it comes going now but the back and neck are stiff.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
it's basically neck muscle tenseness and the headache can be either in the back of the head or in the forehead or running the gamut between those two points
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Damn annoying as they last weeks !! Never get worse go away at night as I relax return during the day.
Last time I had a ct brain scan. In October all perfect normal.
Guess I'm stuck with them ? They come about every six months.
Could it be stress or anxiety ???
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Can be from stress, yes. A good deep tissue massage is the best treatment
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Cheers ***** ***** nothing serious ?
I'm on vacation in whitby have an apartment on the beach maybe that's relaxed me a bit.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Nothing serious mate. I assume you mean being there is relaxing and not that just the fact that you have an apartment on the beach at Whitby in and of itself is relaxing to think about
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think the headache has gone and it's just turned to neck pain.
You must visit whitby you would love it. !!!!!!!
Thanks again on this one.
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
