Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency

Malignancy: In your age group (27 is correct, yes?) not terribly high for malignancy but not out of the question. benign tumor (non-cancer) or functional cyst is much more likely. Clinical history would be very helpful, blood testing sometimes too. Very dubious that it would cause urinary frequency. Hope this help! ...Read more

What are internal echos in a cyst?

What are internal echos in a cyst?

Internal echoes: It means that the fluid is not homogenous. When the ultrasound beam passes thru fluid (or anything), a part of it bounces back or 'echoes' if it encounters something else. It is works exactly like sonar works over a body of water. So internal echoes in cyst fluid could be due to debris or blood mixed in with the fluid, or other things. ...Read more

What is multiple echoes in the cyst?

What is multiple echoes in the cyst?

Criss-crossed: All true cysts are abnormal, epithelially-lined, closed, fluid-filled structures. Some are tumors, some are developmental problems, some have other causes. If there are multiple echoes, the cyst is crisscrossed by sometime, perhaps sheets that may make it harder to aspirate the contents all at once; it may be a group of many little cysts. ...Read more

What is an hemorhagic cyst with internal echoes?

Hemorrhagic cyst: To present the spectrum of sonographic findings associated with hemorrhagic ovarian
cysts. Experience with making specific and correct diagnosis of hemorrhagic cysts with the
use of sonography was reviewed, and the spectrum of sonographic findings was identified. Endovaginal sonography facilitated excellent visualization of internal architectural details of an adnexal
mass, which enabled specific diagnosis of hemorrhagic cysts instead of other adnexal massesA hemorrhagic cyst is a common and important entity to recognize and diagnose correctly,
and because it can be confused with more ominous conditions, it is important to recognize its
specific diagnostic patterns ...Read more

Had TV uss 18/08/15 ovaries normal. Rescan 11/9/15 right sided 6cm complex cyst 1 septation low level echoes explain pls awaiting rescan in 6 weeks?

Had TV uss 18/08/15 ovaries normal. Rescan 11/9/15 right sided 6cm complex cyst 1 septation low level echoes explain pls awaiting rescan in 6 weeks?

Unsure answer: This is difficult to explain without the history as to why the first ultrasound was done and if normal why the second one was done then as well. Also important whether period is active and still ovulating. This second ultrasound shows a probable fluid in a cyst with separation but this appears in 3 months so may mean nothing but make sure follow as they are doing. Need to consult with your Dr. ...Read more

My uss report says: the right ovary has volume of 19.2cc's, there is a small complex cyst right ovary containing internal echoes. What does this mean?

SUGGEST DOPPLER U/S: Altho not enough info, I would recommend having a doppler ultrasound and follow the cyst with another ultrasound after your next period. It could go away on its own, but if it doesn't, it could be a dermoid or endometrioma, both of which are benign. Although I would not be too concerned about cancer at this time, keep an eye on it. I do not think that a ca125 blood test is necessary yet. ...Read more

Ask your physician: The dr who ordered or did the test needs to interpret the findings for you. A specialist here might help, but you still need to ask your dr. Don't jump to the conclusion of cancer - cysts can vary in type - not only cancers. Your doctor will suggest the next steps -A full interpretation of results and a Tx plan are part of your medical care. Ask until you understand. ...Read more

I've had multiple bilateral simple renal cysts for a few years. Recent ultrasound shows internal echoes in one of them. Can simple cyst turn complex?

I've had multiple bilateral simple renal cysts for a few years. Recent ultrasound shows internal echoes in one of them. Can simple cyst turn complex?

Yes: A simple cyst can become more complex if bleeding or infection occurs within it. Rarely, intracystic malignancy can occur. If it is just some low level echoes, it is probably nothing to worry about. If there are multiple renal cysts, it is not uncommon for one or two to have some internal echoes. If there are no suspicious features, sometimes they are ignored, followed with serial US, or f/uCT ...Read more

Fibrin in cyst: Ovarian cysts frequently will have stuff inside. When they do not, it is a simple cyst. When there is bleeding in to the cyst, they become complex.

Need Fertility Exam: I would refer you to a fertility specialist. Certainly a complex ovarian cyst can be secondary to endometriosis which can adversely affect fertility. Ovarian cyst resulting from polycystic ovary syndrome – a constellation of small cysts in the ovaries, irregular periods, elevated androgens – can contribute to fertility problems. A fertility exam is required for specific answers. ...Read more

An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
