Customer Question
A CT Scan just...

A CT Scan just showed a vascular mole. I am worried that it is a reoccuance from Hodgkins disease 15 years ago. I had radiation treatments to my head and neck. I was being treated for a sinus infection, but my peripheral vision was affected, so a CT Scan was ordered.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Not written

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Don't think so. Hodgkins 15 years ago. Sinus infections, pretty much, twice a year. All else ok.

It is not likely to be Hodgkins;

1) Recurrence after 15 years is extremely rare.

2) CT scan is a good modality and thus missing Hodgkins is highly uncommon.

If you are worried, you may ask your doctor to get an MRI for reconfirming.

What is a vascular mole?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Vascular mole is benign (non cancerous) pigmented blood vessel tumor.

Usually this does not require treatment unless it causes any symptoms.
