Is a "hemorrhagic corpus luteum" and a hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst the same thing? Would either make an ovary look cancerous to a gynonc?

Is a "hemorrhagic corpus luteum" and a hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst the same thing? Would either make an ovary look cancerous to a gynonc?

Ovarian Cysts: You didn't give your age, but hemorrhagic corpus lutein cysts are not cancerous, although they can rarely "burst" & bleed into the abdomen and cause considerable discomfort. Any cystic lesion in the ovary should be screened by ultrasound, pelvic exam and possibly other modalities by your gynecologist to rule out cancer, which may be seen over age 45, but often in younger women in their 20's & 30s. ...Read more

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

MRI findings: Uterine fibroids can appear as dense masses on MRI, or increase in density in the layers of the uterine muscle. Ovarian cysts are often fluid filled but also can be solid masses on MRI. I would ask your health care provider or the radiologist to interpret these findings rather than trying to identify these conditions yourself as there appearance on scans are not always the same. ...Read more

Does a paraovarian cyst mimic an ectopic pregnancy? Or are they easily distinguishable on ultrasound?

Essentially you can: Distinguish the two, but could depend on how well you see it. Any time you are pregnant and do not have an intrauterine pregnancy, then ectopic cannot be excluded. The next thing you look for is a mass outside the ovary. In general, it is pretty easy to tell if it is a paraovarian cyst or something more ominous, but certainly not 100% of the time. ...Read more
