A good afternoon. I want to ask. On my left knee there is a small lump. After ultrasound the result is a hyperechoic mass in the anterior region of the genus sinistra 7×4 mm in size. Is that dangerous? And is it required for surgery? thank you

Hi Fauzia,

Ultrasound or ultrasonography is an examination of the examination carried out with ultra sound waves to get a body image. In distinguishing structures examined, ultrasonography uses echogenicity (echogenicity). A different ecogenicity structure will give a different contrast picture on the inspection screen.

Hyperechoic features indicate an increase in density (density) of sound waves compared to the surrounding structure. This condition can be caused by bone, calcification of fat, stones or fat tumors.

Some conditions such as fat tumors (lipomas) generally do not require certain treatment if they do not cause complaints. But if the complaint leads to malignancy (cancer) then the doctor can consider the surgical procedure.

Although it can provide an overview of the body image, an ultrasound examination still needs to be adjusted to a physical examination and a history of complaints to ascertain the cause of your complaint so you should discuss the results of your examination directly with the doctor who treats you so that you get information that suits your condition.

May be useful,
