No change is good: What is your age? Was the last mammogram available for comparison a year ago? Overall, stability and no change is very good. However, did the Radiologist recommend a routine follow up?

Risk is decreased: The fact the fetal pole has a heartbeat is very good and encouraging. However, the risk of miscarriage is still present until 12-13 weeks. That is why most celebrities do not release statements about pregnancy, due to the fact that miscarriage can happen. After this time, with a normal fetal heartbeat and placenta, the risk of miscarriage drastically decreases.

Cyst=benign: A peripelvic cyst is fortunately a benign finding. A peripelvis cyst is a simple cyst next to the part of the kidney which collects urine. No further imaging is required.
