Doctor insights on:
Based on setting: During pregnancy, it is not unusual to see "debris" in the amniotic fluid during ultrasound. This is likely related to vernix - a cheesy substane produced by the baby. On the other hand, bloody amniotic fluid that is actually seen can be normal, or it can be a sign of a complication called placental abruption. In either case, this should be clarified by the ob/gyn involved. ...Read more
Where?: Where is this seen? Is this on plain x-ray or a CT scan? Need much more detailed clinical information. Could mean anything from air & fluid in a urinary bladder, air & fluid in the stomach, or something concerning like an abscess. Review with the doctor who ordered the study please. ...Read more
Water: Free fluid is typically water. The lining of your abdominal contents are slippery (your bowel, the lining of your organs) and it's thus wet inside your abdomen. It's normal to have a little free fluid in one's pelvis, as that's where fluid tends to pool. Your ? Was confusing because you said free fluid in ovary but no cyst. Free fluid in ovary is typically the definition of a cyst. Maybe rephras. ...Read more

Trace: Most often trace amounts of fluid in various parts of the body are insignificant, but I don't know in what part of the body the cul du sac your referring to is located. Nevertheless the finding sounds trivial, but your physician can ask the radiologist who interpreted the study if there is any need for concern or for followup. ...Read more
Decreased perfusion: Oligo can be either loss of fluid or decreased production. A stressed infant will shunt oxygenated blood to more vital organs, less renal perfusion, therefore less urine produced. Anything that decreases placental perfusion can cause it (abruption or placental separation, poor implantation, vascular problems, clots, uterine abnls, etc). There are too many causes to list here, ask your ob. ...Read more
Abscess: The only things that live in the male pelvis are: 1) bladder and 2) rectum. There should be no fluid collection outside of the bladder (normal), but with gas in it, usually represents an abscess. This usually represents a perforation or fistula from the rectum, or post-operative leak after rectal surgery. Depending on the cause, the treatment can be drainage through the rectum or open surgery ...Read more

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency
Malignancy: In your age group (27 is correct, yes?) not terribly high for malignancy but not out of the question. benign tumor (non-cancer) or functional cyst is much more likely. Clinical history would be very helpful, blood testing sometimes too. Very dubious that it would cause urinary frequency. Hope this help! ...Read more

Sharp pain during bowel movement on 1st 2 days of menses. MRI shows some small volume fluid in pouch of douglas. Ultrasound found no abnormalities.
You need to continue: following your GYN doctor to figure out if indeed the pain you feel during bowel movement is attributable to the MRI results - especially since the ultrasound did not find anything to cause the pains. I hope you got a transvaginal ultrasound instead of abdominal ultrasound since the former is much more sensitive to pelvic findings. ...Read more
Varies: Synovial cells that line the synovial joints are the source of synovial fluid. They usually make more fluid in response to an inflammation of the joint capsule, a condition called synovitis. We do not really know of a therapeutic way to increase synovial fluid production in an arthritic joint, but there have been many studies and attempts to do so. ...Read more
