Unclear: The left adnexa is the area on the left side of the uterus which is where the left ovary is located. It's not entirely clear that that mass is. Your doctors are probably not sure either.

Pelvic Pain: It may not be the ovary that is hurting. The belly does not always tell the body directly where the pain is coming from. Thus, left pain can have its source somewhere else. It can seem like your ovary is the source but it may be something else. Common other things can be GI pain, back pain, other pelvic organs, etc. An evaluation with a doctor may help determine the source. ...Read more
Maybe: The left lower quadrant is complicated in terms of figuring what is causing the hurt. It may be the ovary but the pain may also be from the bowels, muscles, nerves, bladder, uterus & other things. The bowels are a common cause of pain in that location since the large intestine makes a turn into the rectum running right under the left ovary & the uterus. Exam & ultrasound imaging is needed. ...Read more
Scar tissue/hernia: If the area of your body where the ovary is located hurts when you cough it may mean that you have internal scar tissue.

A hernia of the bowel may also be the culprit. Get it checked out! ...Read more

(sometimes not.) in older women near the end of their fertility, follicles are often without an egg. Small follicles like you describe are usually pretty normal. The main question is, why did you have an ultrasound? And was that specific concern answered by that test? ...Read more

Hard to say: Maybe impossible to say; pain in the left pelvis may have been from an ovary, but it's impossible to say for sure as several things can cause pain in the same area as the ovary. A bump that disappeared (and was visible) would definitely not have been from the ovary, b/c any 'bumps' on the ovary wouldn't have been 'visible' and would also be hard to palpate through the abdominal wall unless was big. ...Read more
