Black circle on MRI scan. Any thoughts?
« on: July 17, 2018, 09:40:38 PM »
Hi, guys.

I've had an MRI scan on my GOOD leg, as it's really struggling due to my bad leg being bad for a long time.  Along with a few possible issues and a fair bit of fluid in the joint, I've found this little black circle.  I suspect it's nothing, but wondered whether anyone can tell me what it is?  I'm not finding much on google and I won't see my surgeon for ages.

Only talking from personal experience but when I had my shoulder MRI I had a very similar looking black spot on my humeral head. I spent hours googling it... bad idea! so I asked my physio - they said it was completely normal, and very common! I checked with my surgeon as well, and he said it was so common it wasn’t even in the MRI report. Just like a more dense patch of bone that appears as dark on the scans.

Although this is only from my experience. Good luck with it, I definitely know how sore a ‘good’ knee can get!!
