Can you tell me what a 2.4 CM left ovarian cystic lesion with 8mm enhancing mural nodule suspicious of neoplasm.
It is suspicious: You should ask your doctor what it means in terms of future follow up. Since it is suspicious, a repeat imaging study needs to be done in 2 months.

This might provide further guidance as to the possibility of ovarian cancer (if the ca125 is high now, removal of this lesion (cyst) should be considered sooner than later). ...Read more
