Looking for?: For postmenopausal women, transvaginal ultrasound evaluation of endometrial thickness may be used as an initial study to evaluate for endometrial neoplasia in selected women. For these women, it is reasonable to defer endometrial sampling if the endometrial thickness is <4 mm. Pelvic ultrasound is the imaging study of choice for the evaluation of an adnexal mass. ...Read more

More info.: If i understand you correctly, your pregnancy test is negative but your transvaginal ultrasound shows ovarian cysts? Why did you have the ultrasound? At your age benign causes for ovarian cysts are most likely, but consultation with your gynecologist who ordered the ultrasound would be most appropriate to exclude more sinister causes. ...Read more

Uterus: enlarged and measured about  100 & 56mm. Multiple hyperechoic masses seen in all over the uterus.  Biggeronemeasuringabout40 &35mm  posterior ?

Probably Fibroids: Symptoms often include pelvic fullness and/or pressure, or heavy menstrual periods. Often, though, women with fibroids have no symptoms at all. If minor symptoms, i would recommend reevaluation in 4-6 months, to see if they are growing in size. If stable, leave them alone. If growing, consider removal via hysterectomy. If you experience any bleeding, given your age, you should seek medical advice. ...Read more

What is an adnexal mass on the right ovary mean?

Adnexal mass: It is a mass that is seen in the area adjacent to the uterus. Usually this means that it is related to the fallopian tube or ovary on that given side.

Just had cystectomy on 12/5/14 & Left ovary had cystadenoma.still have severe pain&had transvaginal US and there is 5.5cm adnexal mass. Cancer??

Most likely not.: Most ovarian cysts, even those with a glandular component, are benign, altho they can be quite painful. Multiple and/or recurrent cysts are, unfortunately, fairly common. Please follow up with your doctor. While you may need a repeat cystectomy, we can offer medications that help prevent recurrences. I know you're uncomfortable but please don't worry about cancer. It's very unlikely. ...Read more

What can cause a small uterus and non-visualised ovaries?

Normal findings...: If you've never been pregnant or its been awhile since you were, your uterus can be quite small. Ovaries are sometimes just hard to find. They are small and not in a fixed location so they hide behind bowel gas, stool, or other structures in the pelvis. Small ovaries are hardly ever diseased. Its the enlarged ovaries we tend to worry about and they are easier to see. Best wished! ...Read more
