Without the image. .: It's hard to know what you are describing without the image, but it sounds like a placental chorioangioma, which is usually a benign finding. Google that, and look at "images" to see how it compares to what you've got. By the way, the small circle is the yolk sac.

Ultrasound vaginal: You have to be a professional to interpret ultrasounds. Ask your doctor about the meaning of the ultrasounds.
