Can Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma cyst resemble functional cyst on MRI?

Can Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma cyst resemble functional cyst on MRI?

No: A simple cyst has a very specific benign appearance, while a cystadenocarcinoma usually has characteristics that are pathognomonic for a complex mass. A benign hemorrhagic cyst may resemble a worrisome cystadenoca. If you are worried about an ovarian cyst, talk to your doctor. You can do an ultrasound in 4-6 weeks.

I have a small corpus luteum cyst but also a "simple fluid filled" 8 cm cyst the mfm ob said is likely to rupture. Will it hurt the baby? I'm 21wks.

Probably not: If the sonographic appearance of the 8 cm asymptomatic ovarian cyst is "suggestive of a benign lesion" and you and your MFM Ob are not suspecting a malignancy, the risks of ov. cyst rupture, torsion, bleeding ...at 21 wks are relatively small compared to those of surgical exploration. If it becomes smaller and rises above your pelvis, it is not likely to affect the course of your labor either. ? ...Read more
