Cyst likely: Cysts contain watery fluid & no blood vessels thus no blood flow. Lining of cyst is very thin & has blood vessels & flow but flow insufficient 2B detected by U/S. Suggest consult your "anxiety" Dr. if it's not adequately controlled. Good Luck.

In this case yes.: US is used to help determine if a mass is a cancer or something less concerning. Cancer begins initially when cells stop communicating with their neighbors and start to grow faster then the rest. Before developing into a cancer the growing mass must be able to recruit blood vessels otherwise it cannot progress. Regular, smooth shape, freely mobile are all good signs if present.
