What does cervical hypolordosis mean?
Hypolordosis means a reversal of the normal spinal curvature, and cervical refers to the neck, so cervical hypolordosis would mean the neck is not curved properly. The human spine in profile from the side looks somewhat like an S. This reversal can be due to trauma, or more commonly, due to degenerative conditions, such as aging or arthritic changes.

Answer . Not always. It just means that there was something seen and they want to check into it more. The biopsy is to let them know.
Cervical means pertaining to the NECK. So it can refer to two unrelated parts of the body : - the neck region (e.g. cervical vertebrae) - the cervix or neck of the uterus (e.g. cervical cancer)
If you look at someone from the side, you notice that the spine is shaped a little like an "S"... The low portion of your back is called the lumbar area.

What do MRI results mean if they say mild reversal of the cervical lordosis with early dehydration and annular bulging at C4-5?
Sorry that your answer hasn't been replied to yet, and I don't know everything about what you are asking but, I know about the lordosis.. "Mild" reversal of the cervical lordosis is way better than a complete reversal.. The Lordosis is the actual curve in the cervical spine (neck). Normally, the l…ordosis curves inward toward your throat. If there are changes in the lordosis, it means that it is starting to straighten (first) out to what they call "military neck".. I have a complete reversal of the lordosis which means that my cervical spine has lost the complete curve and actually curves the opposite way. This is due to a whiplash injury from a rear-end collision in July of this year. I also have bulging in the same area as you, and problems in T1, T2 & T3.. Bulging of the C4-5 is where your cervical vertabre is bulging out of your spine. More than likely due to disk injury.. Each vertabre is numbered. There are 7 vertabre in the neck area, each are numbered starting from the joint where they spine and head connect. (Cervical 4 & Cervical 5) The term cervical deals only with the neck.. Thoracic deals with the upper back. So, after C7, it then changes to T1, T2 etc.. Good luck on your recovery. It's a long road or so I hear to finally get back to normal or close to it!

This is caused usually by compression on the spinal cord in the neck; Cervial = neck & Myelopathy = disease of spianl cord. Compression may be from bony overgrowth in the spine. . Symptoms will depend how far down the compression is with weakness and loss of sensation present from somewhere in the …arms, all the way down the chest and back to the feet. More specifically at the level of the lesion the muscles supplied by that nerve root will display lower motor neurone signs (wasting, fasciluation, loss of tone and decreased/absent reflexes) and all levels below will have upper motor neurone signs (spasticity, brisk reflexes, clonus). Bladder and bowel function may be affected e.g. incontinence. ( Full Answer )

Small points of bone sticking out from the vertebra toward the front. Osteophytes are an X ray finding association with arthritis in the spine as we age or have had an old trauma.
Cervical mucus changes are monitored for determining when ovulation occurs through the cervical mucus monitoring test. As your cycle progresses, your cervical mucus increases in volume and changes texture. Before collecting a sample, be sure to wash your hands first in order to prevent the transm…ission of germs. The most accurate way to collect your cervical mucus is to insert your finger into your vagina and circle your finger around your cervix or as close as you can to the cervix. This will allow you to actually collect the cervical mucus instead of just it's wetness. Monitoring the changes in cervical mucus is the only method that will not require looking back to the past few cycles for analysis, and also provide reliable results that you can trust when trying to conceive. You can do this yourself by getting a sample of your cervical secretions and stretch it between 2 of your fingers (the thumb and index finger) to test for the consistency. Examining the changes in your cervical mucus can help you pinpoint your time of ovulation and increase your chances of pregnancy. Before Ovulation (low chance of pregnancy) : The first few days following menstruation, there will be little or no discharge present. You will feel dryness around your vulva. During this time, chances of getting pregnant are low. Approaching Ovulation (chance of pregnancy) : The first discharge that does appear should be moist or sticky and should be white or cream in color. In the finger test, the mucus should break easily. You will only be able to pull your fingers about 1 cm apart before it breaks. During this transition time, first the mucus will become cloudy and slightly stretchy during the finger test (this means that it will still break before the fingers are stretched all the way). As time progresses, the mucus will become greater in volume. Right around ovulation (high chance of pregnancy) : At this stage, mucus resembles egg whites. It is the thinnest, clearest and most abundant at this point in the cycle. Finger testing will allow the mucus to stretch quite a ways (several centimeters) before it breaks (if it breaks at all). ) The amount of this thin mucus will steadily increase until you experience your 'mucus peak'. This is the last day of this period where the chance of conception is high. It is closely tied to ovulation. During this phase, the sperm's survival rate is higher. It can survive in cervical mucus for up to 72 hours, a significantly longer time than during the rest of the cycle. After Ovulation (low chance of pregnancy) : After ovulation, there is a marked change in mucus appearance. It returns to the sticky stage (does not stretch during finger test) and there is again a feeling of dryness around the vulva. One caution for this test is that sperm can be confused with the mucus secretions and you could make wrong assumptions. Also, vaginal infections, medication, and birth control can alter conditions and should be taken into consideration when examining any vaginal secretions. Simply put: Dry Probably Not Fertile Sticky Probably Not Fertile Creamy Possibly Fertile Watery Fertile Egg white Most Fertile ( Full Answer )
Cervical cancer has multiple risk factors - not just one cause. The majority of cases do come from a sexually transmitted virus called HPV. Genital human papilloma virus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). The virus infects the skin and mucous membranes. There are more tha…n 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of men and women, including the skin of the penis, vulva (area outside the vagina), and anus, and the linings of the vagina, cervix, and rectum. You cannot see HPV. Most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it. The other factors can include: multiple sex partners, smoking, weakened immune system, genetic factors, etc. Cervical cancer often has no symptoms until it is more advanced. For this reason, it is important for women to get screened regularly for cervical cancer. (Pap Test) ( Full Answer )
In laymen's terms it means your disc are thinning and being compressed (squashed) by your vertebrae. This is a normal occurence as we age. Sometimes it can be due to a traumatic injury. Some people may experience some pain, while others never do. Most symptoms can be relieved by losing weight, seein…g a good phyical therapist and consistently doing the exercises they prescribe. Many people also find relief doing inversion therapy (hanging upside down) as this stretches out the spine and relieves the pressure between the disc and vertebrae. In most people taking an anti-inflammatory such Motrin and using ice packs along with these conservative treatments will provide adequate relief. ( Full Answer )
The human spine is separated into several sections - Cervical means the neck vertebrae. The C6-7 disk is between the C6 and C7 (Cervical) vertebrae. Depending on the severity of the problem (whether or not the disk is just bulging or has in fact ruptured through the disk membrane (herniated), the… problem can be corrected either with facet injections or other non-invasive therapy. However, if the problem is severe enough, it will begin to affect one of your arms (usually the left) to the point where paralysis may set in if it is not corrected. Staying clear of anything that can potentially aggravate this cannot be overstated. If you further damage the disk to the point where it cannot be dealt with by steroidal injection, NSAID's and bedrest, surgery is the only other option. While the procedure has gotten a lot easier since I had mine done in '96 (my surgery was a fusion of the C5/6/7 vertebrae - those disks had collapsed), it is still major surgery, and you can expect at least 3-5 months to recover, more if they require a bone graft from the pelvic area (never opt for cadaver bone as it has been proven it can transmit the AIDS virus). Do whatever therapy your doctor tells you - it is not something to be taken lightly, and if the disk is in fact herniated, there will always be a weak spot in the disk membrane. What that means is that you'll always be at risk of another herniation at that spot, even if it heals, because it will always be weak. ( Full Answer )

What does this mean Cervical forward flexion 35 degree cervical extension 32 degree right cervical rotation 65 degree left 45 degree side bending right 25 degree left 36 degree?
This sounds like something that you read in an exam form or diagnostic report. Â What is being described is either active range of motion in the neck or passive range of motion in the neck. Â Active range of motion meaning how far you can flex or turn you neck yourself, passive range of motion m…eaning how far can the doctor move your neck. Â . Forward flexion meaning how far can your head move forward in degrees as you bring your chin to your chest. Â Extension meaning how far can you bring your head back like you are looking at the ceiling. Â Rotation meaning how far can you turn your head to the right or the left. Â Side ending, lateral bending, or lateral flexion meaning how far could you bend you head to the right or left side, as if you were bringing your ear toward your shoulder. . There are different "normal" values for active versus passive. Â And in fact there are different values for active or passive amongst many different textbooks. Â It sounds like "side bending" range of motion is reduced when bending to the right when compared to the left. Â It also sounds like "cervical rotation" is reduced when turning to the left when compared to the right.Â . Reduced cervical range of motion is an indicator of some kind of neck dysfunction that is probably musculoskeletal. Â What that dysfunction is requires a complete history & examination that may include the addition of special tests like x-rays, MRI, CT, &/or EMG. Â You should seek the advice of your health-care professional to determine what this means in the context of a complete examination. Â From there you can discuss with your health-care professional how best to treat your problem. . \n ( Full Answer )
Neck...as in cervical rib, meaning an extra rib arising from the neck. It may also refer to the narrow part of the uterus (its "neck"), as in cervical mucus, cervical cancer, etc.
The initial screening test for cervical cancer is the Pap smear. This test is not specific, however; the more specific test used when the smear indicates the need for further treatment is the cervical biopsy.
"Cervical" has to do with the end of the uterus. "Exposure," in STDs, means having contact with some germ. So "cervical exposure" would mean contact at the cervix with some germ.
It means that the person has cancer in the cervix (a ring of muscle between at the end of the vagina that acts as the opening to the uterus) and that it is not able to be treated (they will die from it).
What does it mean when after you have surgery to get rid of cervical cancer that you only have 8 months to live?
What it says, that they think your life expectancy is 8 months. It can be longer or shorter. But I wonder if they mean with or without treatment. After surgery usually hormonal or chemotherapy treatment follow. Depending on how that works the life expectancy can change drastically. This is something… you really should speak to your doctor about. Often does one need more then one meeting and repetition to understand and take in everything they say. ( Full Answer )

Sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia, gonorrhea, Trichomonas, herpes, and the human papilloma virus (HPV, the virus that causes genital warts), are the most common cause of cervicitis. It can also be caused by bacterial infections with Streptococcus or Staphylococcus or by an overgrowt…h of the bacteria normally found in the vagina. Irritation and allergy can also cause cervicitis. Irritation may be due to a vaginal device, such as a diaphragm, cervical cap, or uterine support device (pessary) rubbing on the cervix, or due to chemicals or components of spermicides or lubricants. Latex is a common cause of cervicitis due to an allergic reaction. The Fuyn pill is a complex herbal remedy for female reproductive system infections and inflammations.

Does osteophyte formation disc degeneration loss of cervical lordosis and facet hypertrophy mean someone has arthritis?
In my opinion, yes. This long description is a break down of some of the elements that can happen when someone develops cervical spine (neck) arthritis. In the above question it appears that the doctor is attempting to list or describe what is going on in detail rather than simply stating that th…e person has neck arthritis. I can explain this better with an example: A person can walk into a room and say, "This room is a mess." We have a general idea of what is going on in that room, we know it is not clean and things are laying around, but we do not know exactly. Another person can go into that same room and say, "This room has books and magazines thrown around on the floor, potato chips are scattered on the coffee table and floor, empty beer cans are sitting on top of the television, and the dog has chewed a hole in the couch." Both tell you the room is a mess, one states only the conclusion while the other gives you details and lets you draw your own conclusion. Both are informative, but one more so. In the above question, the osteophyte (bone spur) formation, disc degeneration (thinning), loss of normal lordosis (neck curvature) and facet hygpertrophy (joint thickening) are all elements or aspects of arthritis.
