Often nothing bad.: It means you have a round mass filled with fluid in the adenoidal tissue. This could be a Thornwaldt cyst which is no big deal. Cancer of the adenoids is very rare. Your doctor will tell you if you need to get a repeat MRI or any further evaluation and how worried to be. Significance does depend on why you were having the MRI, though. See http://radiopaedia.

Adenoids (Definition)

Adenoids are lymphatic tissue found in the airway behind the nose in the back of the throat. Adenoids are made up of the same type of tissue as the tonsils. Both help fight infections. However, unlike the tonsils, they cannot be seen by looking in the throat. Adenoids are found in children and begin to regress before puberty. In children, enlarged adenoids can cause obstruction of the nasal airway leading to difficulty breathing, breathing through the mouth, nasally voice, ...Read more

I was diagnosed after MRI with prominent adenoid pad and tiny mucosal retention cyst in both maxillary sinus. What are my options?

I was diagnosed after MRI with prominent adenoid pad and tiny mucosal retention cyst in both maxillary sinus. What are my options?

Symptoms?: Why was the MRI done? If you are having nasal obstruction or obstructive sleep apnea, your ENT doc may recommend removal of the adenoids. If no nasal obstruction of concern about the adenoid tissue being a tumor, I would think no treatment necessary.
The mucus retention cysts of the maxillary sinuses usually do not require treatment unless the doc suspects another diagnosis. ...Read more

What to do if I have told my friends What to do if I have adenoid cystic carcinoma but every time I tell them, they get scared. Why?

Slow growing: Adenoid cystic Ca is a rare usually slow growing cancer that predominates in the salivary glands of the head and neck. While survival is very good even with mets, its best to have the lesion removed before it spreads. It is not contagious and friends should be told that it has already been removed and can not be spread by contact. ...Read more

1 CM paraovarian cyst incidentally found on u/s. Is this a simple cyst? All it said was '1 x1cm paraovarian cyst'. F/u not needed, apparently.

1 CM paraovarian cyst incidentally found on u/s. Is this a simple cyst? All it said was '1 x1cm paraovarian cyst'. F/u not needed, apparently.

Parovarian Cyst: A parovarian cyst is a tiny fluid-filled sac found in 3-4% of women incidentally for other reasons. Depending on whether the cyst is attached to the top of the fallopian tube (the fimbria) or nearby, the cyst may be called a "hydatid cyst of morgagni [see image attached]*" or, simply, a "paratubal cyst."

If u/s report says that there is a "1 CM paraovarian cyst", does this mean it's a simple cyst? Would they have mentioned other concerning features?

Could be: Most small cysts of the ovary and surrounding the ovary are benign. The critical aspect would be to see if the cyst grows over time. If it grew substantially, or if it acquired more solid areas, there may be a need to have it removed. I would discuss the situation with your obgyn. ...Read more

U/S says 5.6cm ovarian cyst resolved, but it still hurts all the time. What could be going on? I'm still having all the same symptoms.

Cystic fluid: If the ovarian cyst resolved by rupturing with fluid accumulation on the lining of the internal body cavity (peritoneum), then that's why you are still symptomatic. Eventually this will resolve if that is the case. ...Read more

Had vag u/s. Rt ov sm cyst left ov larger cyst w/striations which doc seems concerns. Taking both ov out in 4 days. Why exactly is striations?

Second opinion: It is a big leap for me to make to suggest that a second opinion might be worthwhile, but I would suggest to you the following:
1. The right ovary sounds normal - why couldn't they just perform an ovarian cystectomy?
2. I would need more details about the left to give you an opinion

to take both ovaries out would make you menopausal. If this is not necessry, saving an ovary might be good! ...Read more

Cyst unlikely to be: The cause of symptoms. There may be some other issue, but it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you.
With fatty liver and high blood pressure, it is imperative that you lose weight.

Ah, PCOS: Would be treated that way. Certainly birth control will prevent pregnancy by giving hormones all the time and messing up cycling. Some people have part of the ovary making high amounts of hormones...making their own internal birth control pill. The hope (it is at best 50/50) is that stopping everything w. birth control hits the reset button. ...Read more
