Taking MRI for ovarian cyst. I didn't take it last time I had it. Removed only cyst by lap surgery. Why do I have to take MRI this time?

Taking MRI for ovarian cyst. I didn't take it last time I had it. Removed only cyst by lap surgery. Why do I have to take MRI this time?

Depends: With prior operation, they want to be sure if it is a cyst, or if more than one, or any other abnormalities in area. Ct or MRI can help.

Mri (Definition)

Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

What can MRI tell about ovarian cyst?

What can MRI tell about ovarian cyst?

Simple or complex: An MRI can show if the cysts are simple cysts or complex cysts, or if they have other characteristics that would indicate that further evaluation or follow-up is needed. If they are simple cysts, further evaluation is usually not needed.

Is this a sign of ovarian cancer or cervical cancer MRI shows bilateral ovarian cysts and small follicles also present on right ovary and iliac node?

Is this a sign of ovarian cancer or cervical cancer MRI shows bilateral ovarian cysts and small follicles also present on right ovary and iliac node?

No: It is hard to say with the information provided, but the MRI finding sounds benign, non-cancerous. Of course the ordering physician and official radiology report are more important than someone that does not know the full story.

Can lumbar spine Mri without dye detect ovarian cyst?

Can lumbar spine Mri without dye detect ovarian cyst?

NO: If MRI is done for spine focus will be on spine, speak to your doctor, if you think you have ovarian cyst problem, must be seen by gyn doctor and tests are to be done appropriately for correct diagnosis

More Information: The MRI can determine what the content of the cyst might be such as blood, fat, solid tissue, vascularity of the, "cyst". The MRI can also show if there are characteristic of the presumed cyst that suggest that there might be a tumor.

I've had lower right abdomen pain for 6 weeks, have had an MRI scan showing a 3cm ovarian cyst. Is this common and what is likely to be the next step?

I've had lower right abdomen pain for 6 weeks, have had an MRI scan showing a 3cm ovarian cyst. Is this common and what is likely to be the next step?

Ov cysts r common: Ovarian cysts are common, in fact they occur every month you cycle. If they're simple, no worry. If you're post menopausal, you'll need further evaluation. You should discuss w/the doctor who ordered the scan.

Recently had a full spine MRI which incidentally showed follicular ovarian cysts could it have showed any problem with cervix, bladder or uterus as we?

Yes. An MRI of the-: Spine could very well show abnormalities, but on a spine MRI scan, it is an incidental finding. This can not B relied on for diagnosing cervical, bladder or uterine abnormalities to any degree. If indicated an MRI of the abdomen would B needed.

Have abdominal pain, low back pain and nausea. Full spine MRI showed bilateral follicular ovarian cysts. Is this from that or can it be ovarian cancer?

Obgyn evaluation: Individual cases will need to be interpreted one on one. Follicular cysts are fairly common findings and although most cause no symptoms sometimes they can cause discomfort. Follicular cysts do not really look similar to ovarian cancer on MRI. You should ask the ordering physician to review the report with you and go over the specific findings.

When getting an MRI for a ovarian dermoid cyst, do you need any type of medication?

When getting an MRI for a ovarian dermoid cyst, do you need any type of medication?

No: You may be administered a small injection of MRI contrast during the exam but not necessarily.

4-5cm ovarian cyst appeared 3 months after cyst removal. MRI a month later showed there's nothing significant. Do I repeat this? Having another pain

4-5cm ovarian cyst appeared 3 months after cyst removal. MRI a month later showed there's nothing significant. Do I repeat this? Having another pain

Probably not: Ovarian cysts at your age are very common. They can enlarge, regress, and rupture - which can cause pain. Your pain may also be related to your cycles. You can also follow ovarian cysts under ultrasound which may be faster and easier than MRI.

Ovaries "move"!: Ovaries do not necessarily stay on one side when they are significantly enlarged, but swing behind or in front of the uterus with symptoms based upon location.

An MRI of the spine showed a 5.9cm ovarian cyst. I had a Partial Hysterectomy 25 years ago. Should I be concerned I'm 50 years old.

Need eval by Gyn onc: It would be wise to have a pelvic ultrasound, consult a Gyn oncologist and have your ovarian cyst evaluated further. Ultimately, either exploratory laparoscopic surgery or laparotomic oophorectomy may be needed to make a definitive diagnosis. Unfortunately there is no other accurate and reliable way to reassure you that your ovarian cyst is benign, even though most ovarian cysts are.

3.2x2.8cm complex ovarian cyst didn't show on us but did on MRI 1wk later. Does this mean it grew that fast between the tests? Terrified of cancer!

3.2x2.8cm complex ovarian cyst didn't show on us but did on MRI 1wk later. Does this mean it grew that fast between the tests? Terrified of cancer!

No: Could be that ovary was behind another structure or you ovulated a corpus luteum showed up on the mri. Wait 2-3 cycle and have us repeated during your period to asses your cyst.

1.2cm right ovarian cyst which showed T1 & T2 hyperintense signal which persisted bright in T2FS sequence on MRI!! what is it? Please explain

1.2cm right ovarian cyst which showed T1 & T2 hyperintense signal which persisted bright in T2FS sequence on MRI!! what is it? Please explain

The: Signal characteristics you describe suggest that the cyst is a hemorrhagic cyst, a cyst that has bled into itself. This is relatively common, and will generally resolve on its own.

1.2cm ovarian cyst with T1&T2 hyperintense signals which persisted bright in T2FS seq on MRI. Can it be endmeriosis or anything besides hemorhegic cyst?

1.2cm ovarian cyst with T1&T2 hyperintense signals which persisted bright in T2FS seq on MRI. Can it be endmeriosis or anything besides hemorhegic cyst?

Endometriosis: Could also manifest as cysts with hemorrhagic internal contents. However, usually there are other findings, not just a solitary cyst. Sometimes a cyst with internal proteinaceous content could cause the signal characteristics you describe. However, the vast majority of the time, the cyst you describe is simply a functional hemorrhagic cyst.

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

MRI findings: Uterine fibroids can appear as dense masses on MRI, or increase in density in the layers of the uterine muscle. Ovarian cysts are often fluid filled but also can be solid masses on MRI. I would ask your health care provider or the radiologist to interpret these findings rather than trying to identify these conditions yourself as there appearance on scans are not always the same.

Possible post tubal/ ablation syndrome & US found a large left side "complex" ovarian cyst. MRI now scheduled. Having monthly unbearable pain. Ideas?

Possible post tubal/ ablation syndrome & US found a large left side "complex" ovarian cyst. MRI now scheduled. Having monthly unbearable pain. Ideas?

Gynecologist: It is important to see a gynecologist so that a treatment plan can be created. A large complex ovarian mass needs evaluation and surgical treatment may be warranted. There are many possible causes of ovarian masses. Most are benign but some are not therefor prompt evaluation is needed. An ovarian mass is not likely to be related to post tubal ablation syndrome

I had a MRI done of pelvis it says I have bilateral ovarian cysts 2.7cm and 2.9 CM also shows I have a proximal iliac node 1.7 CM what should I do?

I had a MRI done of pelvis it says I have bilateral ovarian cysts 2.7cm and 2.9 CM also shows I have a proximal iliac node 1.7 CM what should I do?

See a doctor.: Ovarian cysts are common. One single mildly enlarged pelvic lymph node is nonspecific. Your doctor may elect to follow up the cyst to see if they would resolve on their own over 2-3 menstrual cycles. They may come and go. See your doctor for check up of the rest of your body to see if there are other enlarged lymph nodes.

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
