Re: Sinus CTscan results??
Hello Suggi.....Sorry to hear you are having trouble. As another poster suggested, I would suggest seeking a second opinion as it can't hurt. An ENT is a Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist. I assume you're seeing one now. If not, then I would seek the advice of one as they are the foremost experts in this area.
The terminology on the report is written in medical terminology, thus, it's hard to understand. "Asymmetiric prominence of the left fossa" means that it's a different size or shape vs the right fossa. This may not mean anything. Heck, I have one foot bigger than the other (most people do). A "neoplastic process" is a new or abnormal growth, so when the report says "Recommend direct correlation to exclude underlying neoplastic process", it means to make sure that the difference in the two fossas aren't the result of some growth, which I'm quite sure your Doc did. Thus, he deemed everything normal as the only finding is that you have one area slightly different than another, which happens all the time.
Did you discuss with him if the scan showed any signs of sinus disease or blockages? This would explain why you're having issues. The scans will also show how bad a potential sinus issue is as well. If you read through the post titled "I feel worse not better" by Essica. She gives pretty good detail in her initial post about her CT scan in relation to sinus disease / problems. Don't let the word "disease" scare you...It's just the official word they use for chronic sinus problems.
I would get the 2nd opinion as it will make you feel better. At the very least, I would double back to the Doc who ordered the test and see if the scans show any signs of sinus disease. For those who have problems, the pockets of the sinuses are usually filled with mucus....Sort of like sludge at the bottom of a pond, for lack of a better description.
Hope all of this helps, and I hope you feel better. Sometimes Docs don't do the best job of explaining things as they are rushed to see all their patients in a given day.
