A 32-year-old female asked:

I've got a 4cmx4cmx3cm cyst with internal echoes on right ovary. had cervical cancer 2 year ago and had hysterectomy. is this bad?

Usually no: The echoes are commonly due to some bleeding into the cyst. It is reasonable to get another ultrasound in 6 months to recheck but the overwhelming likelihood is that this is not cancerous. These cysts also commonly go away on recheck.
