A cyst that has bled (hemorrhagic cyst), an endometrioma or other solid ovarian lesion can be echogenic. These usually require short term follow up u/s and/or MRI to make sure they are not something serious. Some lesions may go away on their own, others may require treatment. ...Read more
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

Without seeing the images, we can only make guess. Hope this helps. ...Read more
