Cyst: This is most likely what is called a "corpus lute un cyst". It arises during the normal process of ovulation, an on occasion can cause pain. It is a problem that your bodiy's mechanisms will solve on their own. It is not cancer. Your cyst is very small and will most likely never require any surgery - but the pain can last as long as 6-8 weeks (hopefully much shorter for you!). ...Read more

Lrg mass in the pouch of Doug, based on the "pedicle sign", suspect ovary is the origin, mass is heterogeneous, cystic & hemorrhagic elements?

Mass: If a CA-125 hasn't been done yet, then it should be. Depending on the size of the mass and any findings on a CT scan such as ascites, you may need to be referred to a gynecologic oncologist. ...Read more

What does "heterogenously echogenic lesion within left ovary" mean? Also says "mild heterogeneous posterior acoustic shadowing".

What does "heterogenously echogenic lesion within left ovary" mean? Also says "mild heterogeneous posterior acoustic shadowing".

Indeterminate lesion: By far the most common cystic ovarian lesions are benign functional ovarian cysts. When a lesion doesn't follow a typical benign imaging characteristics (heterogenous or shadowing) on ultrasound, it requires either follow up to resolution and/or further evaluation including MRI in some instances. Without actually seeing the images, it's hard to make any further recommendations. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Findings at ER: left ovary contains heterogeneous peripherally vascular 2.5cm cyst. Right ovary has 2.0cm heterogeneous cyst. MUCH pain. What's next?

Findings at ER: left ovary contains heterogeneous peripherally vascular 2.5cm cyst. Right ovary has 2.0cm heterogeneous cyst. MUCH pain. What's next?

Options: For young women with a newly found cyst (or cysts) and bad pain - as long as they aren't too large (usually less than 7cm) we typically recommend allowing 6 weeks for the cysts to go away on their own - and then doing another sono to check and see if they are gone. Sometimes a cyst can twist, or "torse" and that requires emergency surgery. If pain is severe, and meds don't help, surgery is option. ...Read more

Lrg mass in the pouch of Doug, based on the "pedicle sign", suspect ovary is the origin heterogeneous, hemorrhagic and cystic elems, what surgery?

Surgery: Because of your age, your surgeon may be more inclined to do a laparotomy with probably complete hysterectomy with both tubes and ovaries. However, if your CA-125 is normal he/she may offer laparoscopy to remove the mass. More than likely it will be the first option. ...Read more

Ultrasound results = thickened heterogeneous endrometrium, 1.8cm. 3cm hemorrhagic cyst left ovary. Done 3 days prior to start of cycle. Concern?

Not a concern: The endometrial thickness is fine as long as you are ovulating and not postmenopausal. The hemorrhagic cyst is also of no concern and does not require follow up. ...Read more

VUS revealed Heterogeneous complex enlargement of the left ovary. Measures 4.7 cm in largest dimension. Should I be concerned? CA 125 is 8. 60 yr old

Complex Ovarian cyst: The ca-125 of 8 is normal and reassuring. However, with a complex cyst, if you are having pain or have family history of breast or ovarian cancer, speak with your doctor about having your ovary (ovaries) removed. At 60, the ovaries are not doing much. At minimum, have a repeat us in 3 months or so to reassess the ovary. ...Read more

"11.6 x 9.9 CM large heterogeneous mass involving right ovary."is the result of ultrasound test. Is it cancer?

Not necessarily: Heterogenous ovarian masses can be caused by a variety of benign and malignant causes. Often an ovarian mass of that size would warrant removal and complete pathologic examination to rule out malignancy. ...Read more

Pelvic ultrasound. Left ovary has 3.8cm slightly heterogeneous lesion which appears to have increased through transmission but is not anechoic.?

The vast: Majority of the time in a premenopausal woman these types of findings turn out to be hemorrhagic (or "functional") cysts that are caused be the failure of a follicle to rupture at the time of ovulation. They continue to grow, and most eventually do resolve in 1 or 2 cycles. So, follow up in 6-8 weeks usually document resolution. If it doesn't resolve, further testing may be necessary ...Read more

My ultrasound showed a cyst on my right ovary but also said my uterus was heterogeneous. What does that mean and what causes it, if anything?

My ultrasound showed a cyst on my right ovary but also said my uterus was heterogeneous. What does that mean and what causes it, if anything?

Not unusual: "heterogeneous" just means that the uterine wall has some areas that look different from other areas on imaging (as opposed to "homogeneous, " which means that the whole uterus looks the same across the board). Sometimes it means that a woman has fibroids or adenomyosis, but it is usually not concerning. Your doc can tell you how that finding applies to you. ...Read more

Odd wording: You're not typing the report exactly as it appears. But it seems possible that there is a benign tumor of the uterus called a fibroid or perhaps a condition called adenomyosis. ...Read more

Uterine fibroids: Fibroids are common benign growths in the uterus. Some can cause pelvic pain, pressure and heavy periods. The size and location are important to determine treatment options. Your report indicates 3 large fibroids. Individual sonogram reports must be interpreted in the proper clinical context. Contact the ordering physician who can interpret it based on your symptoms. ...Read more

Looking for?: For postmenopausal women, transvaginal ultrasound evaluation of endometrial thickness may be used as an initial study to evaluate for endometrial neoplasia in selected women. For these women, it is reasonable to defer endometrial sampling if the endometrial thickness is <4 mm. Pelvic ultrasound is the imaging study of choice for the evaluation of an adnexal mass. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I'm 31 years old. I kept ovaries and cervix. I am having severe memory loss and focus issues. What's happening?

I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago. I'm 31 years old. I kept ovaries and cervix. I am having severe memory loss and focus issues. What's happening?

Medication issues: I agree with my colleague on medications, sleep, and memory. Recovery from surgery certainly takes time also. Aldactone ; your BP issues at so young an age are in the mix also. Klonopin for sure interferes with memory; Lexapro (escitalopram) can sedate and cause trouble registering info -- resulting in poor recall later. Please tell your doc about these issues ; see a psychiatrist for evaluation as well. ...Read more

Ultrasound findings, abnormal bleeding for 5 weeks. Endometrium thickness was 0.7cm uterus is diffusley heterogeneous calcifications both ovaries?

Dysfunctional Bleed: Abnormal bleeding could be caused by an endometrial abnormality such as a polyp or tumor. A hysterosonogram, in which saline is instilled into the uterine cavity during ultrasound may provide more information. An endometrial biopsy will likely be needed to better define the problem. Irregular bleeding may also be experienced in the perimenopausal period. ...Read more

I recently had a MRI on my hips which shows mildly complex heterogeneous ovarian cyst and presence of free fluid within the pelvis How serious is this

Hard to say: It is hard to say since there are many different causes of these findings. The first thing recommended should be a pelvic ultrasound with doppler flow studies. The cyst can be a functional cyst with hemorragh (caused by the function of the ovary-ovulation), an endometrioma, a cystic teratoma or dermoid, or a cancer. The doppler flow will be increased if it is cancer. ...Read more

Most nodules benign: Thyroid nodules are often detected incidentally when a patient has neck us. Nodules may range in size from several mm to several cm. With frequency of ultrasounds obtained, incidental thyroid nodules are frequently found. Us can describe nodules and sometimes infer likelihood of benign vs malig. Biopsy most accurate with some specialists advocating biopsy of nodules greater than 1cm others 1.5 cm. ...Read more

Is there any way to convince a doctor to take my ovaries out I can't seem to get s doctor to believe me?

The question is why?: There are usually very specific reasons as to why a physician would want to take out ovaries. It would depend on your history, exam, testing and symptoms. Your family history is very important here. This is a serious operation to consider (all are) and there must be a difference of opinion on your part. Get an opinion from a tertiary referral center from gynecologist/oncologist and see what? ...Read more
