Well circumscribed hypoechoic 4.8 cm cystic mass.  Thickened internal septations, perifpheral mural nodularity and calcification. Pain upper abdomen.

Ovarian: I assume the report is describing an ovarian cyst which may be fluid filled. If so, your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. It is not clear if this is the cause of your abdominal discomfort since the discomfort is not in the pelvic area. Other imaging studies may be recommended. ...Read more

Sorry to hear it. Q?: I'm sorry to hear the scan report. It seems like you could use some support in making sense of all this. Most importantly, do you have symptoms?

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst. Thanks

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst.  Thanks

Yes: It can. It would be helpful to know your age and history to comment further. Septated cysts are also a malignancy risk but there are septated benign tumors too. Do you mean 27 cm or 27 mm? The smaller one 27 mm is fairly low risk regardless; if you mean the larger (27 cm) the risk is correspondingly higher. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more

Small hypoechoic intramural lesion on uterus cancer?

Small hypoechoic intramural lesion on uterus cancer?

But if the lining was not thick on the ultrasound, then the chance of cancer is smaller. A nodule within the wall/ muscle of the uterus is more likely a fibroid. Please follow up w your gyn. ...Read more

Hemorrhagic Cyst: Since you are trying to get pregnant, do a quantitative BHCG pregnancy test to rule out a early intrauterine pregnancy or a ectopic pregnancy. If this is negative, then this is most likely a hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst. Do a follow up ultrasound in 6 weeks to confirm it is gone before you resume your infertility treatments. ...Read more
