Need to know organ.: In which organ of the groin (skin? Cervix? Uterus?) was the lobulated hypoechoic mass found? Usually, hypoechoic means that it's fluid-filled, ie, a cyst of some sort. Lobulated means that rather than being spherical or ovoid in shape, it seems to have two different lobes ("Mickey Mouse ears" in appearance). Some organs are prone to forming cysts; others don't (in which case it's more worrisome). ...Read more
