Hi there,

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you have any symptoms?

Please get yuor thyroid function checked --hypothyroidism can cause weight gain.

I have gained a lot of weight and noticed my abdomen is asymmetrical Should I be concerned.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My abdomen is asymmetrical
Doctor: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Little bit of asymmetrical can be normal.

However, you should also get an ultrasound to rule out any tumor as well --but that will be very unlikely.

Fatty benign lump is most likely.

Best wishes

Just delete my account. I don't have a thyroid issue. My abdomen is assmmetrical. Should I be concerned? Please respond.
Doctor: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Hi I replied earlier to your question --are you getting my replies?

Here is the requote:

Little bit of asymmetrical can be normal.

However, you should also get an ultrasound to rule out any tumor as well --but that will be very unlikely.

Fatty benign lump is most likely.

I got Ultra Sound and it showed a mass in left ovary. Should I get MRI?
Doctor: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Yes you need a MRI and also a biopsy if needed.

CA125 level also should be checked as a ovarian cancer marker.

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
