What is the probability of a septated solid mass of 6cm in an ovary that ruptured being cancerous?
Ovulation: Women's ovaries consist of millions of tightly packed eggs. Before these eggs are ready to conceive, they need to mature over a two week period. During that process an egg surrounds itself with fluid - this structure is called a follicle. The follicle starts out tiny and grows to about 2.5 cm in diameter - then it's a "mature" follicle - anything less than 2 cm would be "immature". ...Read more
Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?
I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged. ...Read more
What does bilateral masses mean in the context of the ovaries? That a mass is on both of the ovaries?
"Mass": The term "mass" generally implies something solid. It's not uncommon or necessarily bad for both ovaries to contain "cysts", which are fluid-filled. But the use of the term "masses" implies that we're dealing with solid things, which could be more concerning. These should be identified in no uncertain terms. ...Read more
I've a large solid tumour where right ovary was with a smaller cystic tumour with solid component in remainder of left ovary. Is this malignant?
Are follicle and corpus luteum ovarian cysts unmistakable in an ultrasound? That is, what are the chances of a cancerous cyst being mistaken for them?
Minimal: Cancerous tumors and normal functional cysts of the ovaries look very different and can be distinguished by ultrasound. The chance of misdiagnosis is very low but if there is any question, follow up testing would be recommended by your physician ...Read more

Exophytic cyst in the left adnexa likely arising from left ovary. Where is this located? In the fallopian tube? And can it cause blockage on tubes?
Ovarian/paraovarian: The report suggests that the cyst is likely coming off of the left ovary. Exophytic means that it is not contained entirely within the ovary, so not 100% sure it is arising from the ovary. Paraovarian cysts can also be seen arising in the broad ligament between the uterus and ovary. If this was affecting the tube (which is unlikely) the tube would likely have been dilated and seen on the scan. ...Read more
