Usually not: "cystic degeneration" usually means that a portion of the tumor has died as a result of its blood supply not always being adequate. If the tumor is troubling you, or if it is growing rapidly, or the radiologist has other concerns, you should consider having it removed or you may be given other options such as embolization. If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

Had transvaginal us.. Showed several fibroids. Rt ovary normal. Lft ovary with a complex cystic lesion measuring 4.2 x 3.6 x 3.5. What could this mean . My symptoms are heavy bleeding with large clots and bleeding most of the time. Endometrium measures 8
Ovary: Heavy bleeding with fibroids is common; you can address with yoru doctor how to handle this. An 8mm endometrium is very non-specific, in other words it's almost certainly normal.

No test is ever 100% but ultrasound is fairly good at telling between cystic and solid lesions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Docs say MRI look like ovariancyst Scheduled ultrasound. Pic of MRI is on my profile pic. Is it the big white thing by tailbone? Is fibroid possible?
Fibroid: Can't see picture well, but a fibroid is usually dark signal, not bright. Cystic structures are bright signal on T2 weighted images, so that big white thing may indeed be a cyst. Ovaries are potentially mobile, so could extend behind the uterus as well. US is the appropriate next test, as your doc has already scheduled. ...Read more
