What Do The Terms Mediastimun And Epithelium Mean On MCU Results?
, I want to ask, my MCU results:
Hello Annisa, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Mediastinum is an area in the chest cavity between the two lungs that contains the heart, part of the trachea, esophagus, and large blood vessels that originate from the heart and into the heart. In this mediastinal area can also be found nerves / nerves and lymph nodes (lymph nodes). The superior mediastinal condition in the middle indicates normal conditions.
Epithelial cells are cells that line the surface or inside organs. The human urinary tract is also covered by epithelial cells. Just like epithelial cells in other places, epithelial cells in the urinary tract will also change cells, so that old cells can be separated and replaced by new cells. The discovery of a few epithelial cells in the urine is normal, but if found in large quantities, it can indicate an infection in the urinary tract, disorders of the kidneys, or certain cancers. Seeing the results of your urine that there is only an increase in epithelial cells only (not accompanied by any other abnormal results), most likely the condition is a normal condition. Increased epithelial cells in urine can also be caused by contamination of urine samples by fluid from the vagina (there is fluid from the vagina that enters the urine collection tube).
You should bring the results of the laboratory examination to the doctor who requested an examination so that further evaluations can be based on the results of history taking and other physical examinations.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
