I got my USG result for my abdminal and says I have a small hyperechoic lesion visible in my right ovary measuring 3X5X6mm. Is something wrong wth me?
Your Gyn is to guide:
The doctor who order ultrasound on your ovary is the best person to guide you.
It is too small to worry about it right now. Unless it grows and gets bigger than 10-12 mm, I would not make much of anything out of it. A repeat study in 6 months will eliminate your anxiety as I suspect that it will either disappear or may not change any in size.
Good luck ...Read more
Among Hypoechoic, ISO to Hypoechoic, Hyperechoic, Isoechoic, which one gives best inference for US liver images. What is the difference between these?
The echogenicity: Of a structure is related to how much it reflects the ultrasound beam and thus creates echoes for the transducer to pick up. If it is very echogenic it looks bright on the screen, and if there are no echoes (anechoic) it is black. Hypoechoic means less echogenic than adjacent tissue (therefore darker), isoechoic means the same echogenicity, and hyperechoic means more echogenic (brighter). ...Read more

Second transvaginal US came back with 1cm hyperechoic avascular lesion in double layer of endometrium which measure 0.8cm. Can I leave it?
It sounds like:
It could be a polyp, sometimes a sonohysterogram is performed for better visualization. A "possible" lesion needs to be confirmed as a real lesion before any surgery. Most polyps are benign, but a small percentage could be cancerous or precancerous. They can cause irregular or heavy bleeding. Talk to your doc about your options and risks/benefits of treatment.
