Can A Pelvic Ultrasound Miss An Ovarian Cyst
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Not very serious.: Hey blood-filled for hemorrhagic cyst is not uncommon. If it is not painful then it can be observed to see if it will resolve without treatment. If a hemorrhagic cyst causes pain or does not resolve and it may need to be removed surgically. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Pelvic ultrasound revealed 3.8 cm functional, septated ovarian cyst. Dr. said no follow up is needed. Should I be concerned?
Rupture is serious: Dermoids can have hair and teeth in them, so are complex on U/S,. The black stuff in the picture is hair. They often grow slowly but rarely rupture. If so, it's like appendicitis and needs immediate surgery. U/S is a good screen for ovarian masses, but with a "surgical pelvis" CT is done. An early sign of impending rupture on U/S might be fluid in the pelvis, but this is not diagnostic. ...Read more
Can a doctor tell from a pelvic ultrasound if an ovarian cyst is cancerous or benign? Or do they all look alike and need further tests?
It depends: Certain features make it highly likely that a cystic lesion is benign(e.g. a small "simple cyst"), and others make it more likely to be malignant. There is significant overlap between benign and malignant features, so at times it is impossible to tell. Other times the appearance is so characteristic that benignity/malignancy can be predicted fairly reliably. Age and other findings also factor in ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How soon can a pelvic ultrasound tell if your preganant? Can a corpus lutem be a early sign of pregenacy? Can a ovarian cyst be a very early sign?
4 weeks: Earlier ultrasound can show signs such as thickened endometrium but pregnancy cannot be confirmed until a gestational sac is seen. A yolk sac & embryo are more diagnostic but may not be seen until later. An HCG level of 1, 000 should correlate with a gest sac. A cl or ovarian cyst occur with ovulation so are not early signs of pregnancy. Take care. ...Read more
Hello, please explain what the finds of my recent transvaginal and pelvic ultrasound found. Right ovary 4.4 x2.9x1.1 CM simple cyst and on the left 5.5 x4.8x2.9 ovarian cyst prior ultrasound measurements were 6.9x5.8x6.5 which was smaller in size but also
Depends: It is difficult to answer your question with certainty without knowing your clinical history, laboratory findings, and detail information of the ovarian cysts. Simple cyst may be monitored over time with us but more complex cysts may require specific management. When a cyst improves in size, it's usually is a good sign but accurate measurements are not always reproducible on us. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
