What is the meaning of immature follicles in right ovary 
?

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?

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?

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

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?

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
