OPD most likely means Out Patient Department
3/52 is probably the code of what out patient department it is
was this typed out or written by hand?
that is pretty sad that the hospital itself doesn't seem to know.
you should show it to discharge nurses.
I agree with you
they most likely will know.
can I ask you a question related to my tests please
two years ago I lost my voice for two months, but a camera could not show any problems.I have had problems swallowing pills they get stuck in top of my throat so i had a camera down again two weeks ago, they said my throat was swollen and inflamed so they took biopsy of the swelling from base of my tongue and top of throat, abnormal cells, also a cyct near my voice box. they said did not think it was anything to worry about and it could be caused by acid reflux or using my cpap machine, but I am worried
worried about what?
abnormal cells and cancer
I am a cancer doctor.
the biopsy would have seen cancer cells there.
I understand that, but does abnormal cells mean its cancer or could it be caused by inflamation due to another illness
I have not heard from hospital, would they have called me now if it was serious
abnormal cells does not mean cancer.
it can be from inflammation from acid reflux.
you don't have cancer.
the biopsy would have shown cancer if there was cancer there.
also cancer would not cause loss of your voice for 2 months and then your voice to come back.
however, a cyst can do that
I agree , but I have not received the biopsy results and its over a week ago, I am a real worryier and I am at my wits end with the waiting
try to call the pathology department or the medical records department to get a copy of your biopsy results.
