Difference Between Complex Cyst And Ovarian Complex
Not quite the same: A tubo-ovarian complex can be made up of ovarian cysts involving the far end (distal) end of the adherent Fallopian tube which does not appear to be infected. A tube ovarian abscess demonstrates evidence of an obvious closed infection involving both the Fallopian tube and the ovary. A tubo ovarian complex can also appear to be a tubo ovarian abscess on ultrasound ...Read more
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired.

Pid requires antibiotic treatment. It can cause abscesses, which will appear on ultrasound, and can be serious. ...Read more

Ovarian cysts: In your age group, most likely it's a blood ; clot filled cyst that will go away by itself. The management depends on whether you're having symptoms. Cysts of that size can cause the ovary to twist causing severe pain ; a surgical emergency. Otherwise, we'd usually repeat the u/s in ~1-4 months. If it's still there, we'd likely want to remove it. Risk of cancer is very low but not zero. ...Read more

Advice: At 22 this is unlikely to be ovarian cancer though doctor likely took a full history and addressed any risk factors you may have. At that size can be watched with serial ultrasounds. Or if causing pain/interfering with quality of life, taken out laparoscopically. Most common cyst with this description is endometrioma. ...Read more

HI Dr. What is the difference between a simple Pineal cyst and a complex Pineal Cyst. Looks like my MRI showed a 1.3 CM Complex Pineal Cyst. Thank you?
Liquid vs other stuf: A simple cyst generally contains only fluid. A complex cyst is a sac that contains mostly fluid (liquid) but also some material - cells / tissue or colloid or something solid - inside. That solid material makes its appearance different than just a fluid-filled sac. Larger (> 1cm) cysts in the pineal gland can't be distinguished from cystic tumors & so repeated scans are generally the rule. TTYD. ...Read more

not a simple cyst: The typical monthly cysts are usually simple follicles, but sometimes there is some bleeding within the cyst or with ovulation. These are called hemorrhagic cysts and will usually go away on their own after the next cycle or two. Your doctor will usually order a followup sonogram to ensure the cyst clears as expected. ...Read more
Depends.: A cystic ovarian lesion can be a benign cyst or a cystic neoplasm. Even a benign cyst can be difficult to diagnose on ct if it has blood (hemorrhagic) or debris inside it. A ct may not be able to discern a hemorrhagic cyst from a solid tumor. A cyst with a growth along its wall may be suspicious. An ultrasound may be useful. Short term follow may tell if the cyst resolve/improve. ...Read more
