If I had a cystectomy, it is possible that the scar tissue from this is referred to as an echogenic cyst now?

If I had a cystectomy, it is possible that the scar tissue from this is referred to as an echogenic cyst now?

Echogenic cyst: Probably not. What is being referred to is the ultrasound property of reflecting sound waves within a cystic structure. What it means is that there is a fluid filled cystic structure within your ovary that is resonating with the sound wave sent out by the ultrasound transducer. ...Read more

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

I have an ovarian echogenic cyst, its 20cm. Am not experiencing any pain and my periods are regular. What is the best way of treating it?

I have an ovarian echogenic cyst, its 20cm. Am not experiencing any pain and my periods are regular.  What is the best way of treating it?

20 cm?: I'm going to ask to clarify are you certain you mean 20 cm or do you mean 20 mm? The former is about the size of a softball, the latter more like a golf ball. If you mean 20 cm this can be an emergency requiring surgery, you need to see your doctor ASAP. If the latter (the small one) there is no emergency but you need a doctor to follow it. ...Read more

Scan shows the left ovary has a 3cm echogenic cyst, probably a haemorrhagic follicular cyst. Will this cause infertility issues? Thank you.

Scan shows the left ovary has a 3cm echogenic cyst, probably a haemorrhagic follicular cyst. 
Will this cause infertility issues? Thank you.

It shouldn't: Hemorrhagic cysts are very common causes of pelvic pain, and not related to infertility. Also, your cyst is not large enough to typically cause ovarian torsion. You can get a repeat ultrasound six weeks later to show that the cyst is resolving. ...Read more

Can an echogenic ovarian cyst go away?

Yes: An echogenic ovarian cyst may be due to blood clot in the cyst. That will almost always resolve on its own. If it does not resolve it will probably require surgical removal. ...Read more

Sir, ultrasonography report OF my (28yr) says that raised stromal echogenicity with multiple peripheral cysts in ovaries.  IMPRESSION : PCOD?

Pre diabetes: PCOD or POCS is polycystic ovarian disorder or syndrome. It is typically seen in women who have an elevated body mass index and insulin resistance. The answer is to treat yourself like a diabetic with low carbohydrate diet and 210 minutes of exercise a week. Not surgery! ...Read more

What does a Lt ovarian complex cyst showing internal septation with homogenous echogenic texture with no vascularity mean. Please help. Thanks.

What does a Lt ovarian complex cyst showing internal septation with homogenous echogenic texture with no vascularity mean. Please help. Thanks.

Not simply water: Ovarian cysts come in different flavors. The simple ovarian cyst usually contains water like substance and not internal echoes on ultrasound. Complex cysts may have blood on the inside called hemorrhagic cyst. With time, the blood degenerates and fibrin may be inside. The septa are occasionally cell walls or may be thickened or very thin. To be complete, cancers can be cystic. Yours like blood. ...Read more

If ultrasound describes a pelvic cyst containing a little echogenic debris and some slight thickening in the wall, what does this mean?

If ultrasound describes a pelvic cyst containing a little echogenic debris and some slight thickening in the wall, what does this mean?

Depends: The meaning of the ultrasound depends on quite a few other factors in your history, plus the possibilities depend on where the cyst is. If it is in the ovaries, a biopsy or surgical excision may be indicated. Talk with your doctor! ...Read more

What do thyroid US results mean? Homogeneous echogenicity. Multiple nodules bilaterally, no cysts ID'd. Heterogeneous parenchyma w/bilateral nodules.

Thyroid nodules: Did they measure the largest nodules? Thyroid nodules are fairly common, and the vast majority of them are not cancerous, but if one is above 1 cm, a biopsy may be considered (there's some variation in how thyroid nodules are managed). Some can give you hyperthyroidism. I'd speak with your doctor or an endocrinologist about further steps. ...Read more

It would be better: If you said where these findings were. It almost sounds like the thyroid. If so cysts in the thyroid may be colloid cysts and they look like cysts with internal echoes or old blood etc. therefore please specify where you have these findings ...Read more

What does this mean? Mixed echogenicity in right ovary, areas of increased echogenicity also some cystic changes but no abnormal vasclarity

What does this mean? Mixed echogenicity in right ovary, areas of increased
echogenicity also some cystic changes but no abnormal vasclarity

Not cancer: The mixed echogenicity means a variety of densities of tissue and the cystic changes can be nothing more than normal follicles. The vascularity is important because cancer grows very rapidly compared to normal tissue an alot of abnormal blood vessels develope to provide the nutrition and oxygen necessary for that rapid growth. It can help differentiate between cancer and no cancer. Hope this helps ...Read more

I would like to ask what is" Multiple tiny echogenic nodules scattered within the right liver. There is a complex cystic lesion in segment V?

I would like to ask what is" Multiple tiny echogenic nodules scattered within the right liver. There is a complex cystic lesion in segment V?

Descriptive: This is from results of testing a damaged liver. It is intended for use by the doctor who ordered the test to guide treatment and advise patient regarding decisions. You need to ask that doctor for a consultation. A 2nd opinion of results may make sense too if yoou are not clear. Best wishes! ...Read more

What does cervical region show echogenic endometrium with 5x5mm size irregular cystic area with mild hypervascularity mean. Is it decidual tissue.?

What does cervical region show echogenic endometrium with 5x5mm size irregular cystic area with mild hypervascularity mean. Is it decidual tissue.?

Doubtful: Decidual tissue is only present when you are pregnant. Assuming you are not pregnant, these findings on you ultrasound could represent a uterine polyp, a fibroid or a cancer in the uterus. You might want to consider having a biopsy of the inside of the uterus or a hysteroscopy. A hysteroscopy is a procedure where you look into the uterus with a small camera. Best wishes! ...Read more

What are the chances my child will be born with chromosomal abnormalities? I was told my unborn child has echogenic bowels, that I tested higher for the risk of Down syndrome and as a carrier of the cystic fibrosis trait

What are the chances my child will be born with chromosomal abnormalities? I was told my unborn child has echogenic bowels, that I tested higher for the risk of Down syndrome and as a carrier of the cystic fibrosis trait

There : There are several ultrasound findings that can suggest down sysndrome, and echogenic bowel is one of them. There could be other explanations for that finding, though.

It sound like you will need some testing to find out what's going on. The two tests used most commonly are amniocentesis and chorionic villous sampling. Each has its own risks and benefits, so you should discuss them with your obstetrician.

I would suggest that you do this sooner than later, and regardless of whether the outcome might lead you to terminate the pregnancy. ...Read more

20 weeks sonogram shows echogenic foci in 4 chamber heart and cystic areas seen bilaterally in fetal kidney measuring 3mm. Tested neg for ds, worried?

Not likely: Your doctor is the best one to ask since he or she has all the details. An echogenic intracardiac foci is basically a variation of normal if your genetic blood testing was normal and there are no other abnormalities were seen. There is not enough detail to comment of the kidney. ...Read more

If it ruptures: If the ovarian cyst ruptures then it might go away on its own. However, the size is very small and you may benefit from oral hormonal suppression by your MD. ...Read more
