Bilateral Ovarian Follicles
Not known!: Hello, we don't know why ovaries make their cysts. Seems that they are a very active organ, what with making eggs and hormones, and sometimes the egg-making cells just overgrow and become a dermoid cyst, complete with hair, skin, and other cells that the 'germ cell' (egg producing cell) has in it's potential. Wierd, huh! they are benign, but don't go away without surgery, and can be recurrent. ...Read more
Ovarian follicles: Ovarian follicles/follicular cysts are a common and typically benign finding during pelvic ultrasound. Usually they are bilateral, multiple, of varying sizes and are of no consequence. When the follicles are arranged peripherally (around the outside border of the ovary) this may reflect the presence of polycystic ovaries (which may require additional bloodwork/hormonal evaluation). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal: Sounds like you have been reading an ultrasound report? Bilateral means "both sides, right and left" and follicles are normal ovarian cysts, where eggs live. The word functional is redundant here, but also describes a normal ovarian finding. ...Read more
See MD: A complex mass at any time is concerning-but more so after menopause. It may have been there for years and be totally benign, but most mds will be worried about a complex mass. A ca125 and he4 test can help decide whether to go to surgery now or closely watching with follow up ultrasound. If it is more than 5 cm or there are other worrisome looking signs on ultrasound, surgery will be necessary. ...Read more
Sort of: If you're asking if pco can be cured, the answer is often no. The symptoms and the consequences of it can however be controlled most of the time. It all depends on the women's individual evaluation. The cause and contributing factors for pco differ for each women.

No: The term complex ovarian cyst indicates that an imaging study, usually ultrasound, shows a cyst with internal echoes, septation, or irregular or thickened cyst walls. They should be aggressively investigated as some of these cysts may be cancerous. Polycystic ovaries are usually enlarged and contain multiple small cysts just under the surface of the ovary. They mainly produce hormone imbalances. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Normal: Ovaries contain follicles. One of them becomes the dominant follicle and grows into an egg that is being released (monthly or so). If you take Clomid (clomiphene) or other medications to help you get pregnant (shots; superovulation) more follicles mature at the same time and you have an increased risk for multiple pregnancies. Your lining is thin. Are you trying to get pregnant? It sounds normal. (prenatal!). ...Read more
My right ovary shows multiple small folliclesleft ovary shows 21*14 mm dominant follicleswhat does this mean?is it PCOD ?
Depends on symptoms: A dominant follicle is a normal physiologic part of an ovary during the ovulation cycle. Multiple small follicles at the periphery of one/both ovaries can be seen in PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease/syndrome), but clinical correlation with symptoms (inc hair loss, menstrual problems, depression, etc.) is needed, typically assessed by an Ob/Gyn.
