I had a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, rupture, ultrasound tech said "it measures 3cm, had to be at least 6cm" does this mean i still have a 3cm cyst?

That's what it: sounds like, but you are better off speaking with your doctor or checking the official ultrasound report for results, instead of relying on what the tech informally says while he/she is performing the exam. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Yes: Yes, it will be better for you to remove it especially if it's on your right side because it could get confuzed with the appendix and you could be misdiagnosed later on with appendicitis. Since it's hemorrhagic Cyst, if it ruptured you might have serious bleeding. ...Read more

Transvaginal Ultrasound 5mm mass, no bloodflow. 1.1cm endometrium; 1.5cm probable hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Should I worry? Very heavy menses, IV Fe.

Transvaginal Ultrasound 5mm mass, no bloodflow. 1.1cm endometrium; 1.5cm probable hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Should I worry? Very heavy menses, IV Fe.

Sono not worrisome: The findings on your transvaginal sonogram do not seem to be cause for alarm but unfortunately they do not explain why you have "very heavy menses" and need IV Fe...which are "causes to worry". It would be good to consult a hematologist to rule out a blood coagulation disorder and a Reproductive Endocrinologist to find out why you may or may not be ovulating regularly and why you bleed heavily. ...Read more

I have Two complex left ovarian cysts, likely hemorrhagic and they want to do another ultrasound a month later? how big is 33 x 32 x 30?

I have     Two complex left ovarian cysts, likely hemorrhagic and  they want to do another ultrasound a month later? how big is 33 x 32 x 30?

Not that big: I assume you are giving me measurements in millimeters. 0varian cysts can range in size from 15mm to more than 200mm. Follow up US is the appropriate management for presumed hemorrhagic cysts...they usually resolve. ...Read more

Diagnosed w/a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Everyone (ER docs) thought appendicitis.CT &ultra sound showed cyst. High WBC. Severe pain again. Any advice?

Diagnosed w/a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Everyone (ER docs) thought appendicitis.CT &ultra sound showed cyst. High WBC.  Severe pain again. Any advice?

Pelvic abscess: The high WBC count worries me. Hemorrhagic cyst may be associated with an abscess. It may not have been infected before but is now infected (abscess is usually due to a focal bacterial infection). I suspect that your doctor put you on antibiotics. If you are getting worse on the antibiotics, they may not be working. Call your doctor right away to let the doctor know it is worsening. ...Read more

What can I expect during an ultrasound to check for ovarian cysts?

What can I expect during an ultrasound to check for ovarian cysts?

It should be painles: Sometimes the study is performed wtih abdominal probe in which case a full bladder is necessary to visualize pelvic organs well. Many times, vaginal probe examination is also performed because this produces superb images as the probe can get very close to the organs being examined. You will need to empty your bladder for this part of the exam. Sometimes, 3d images of the ovary may be helpful. ...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
