My ovary had something that sounds like a fibroadenoma. Should I be worried?

No: Fibroadenoma is a benign fibrous tumor that will have no further consequence once removed. Fibrous tumors of the uterus and ovaries are quite common.

Ovary (Definition)

Difficult to: Speculate, it may or may not involve the area previously biopsied. If you are very worried, call your doctor and ask what he/she is concerned about. Otherwise you will get an answer at your appointment. Most of the time these recalls turn out to be nothing of concern.

Very common: It is very common to find small to moderate cysts on the kidneys when imaging studies are done for something else. They are considered a normal deviation for your age

Many possibilities: There are many possibilities for pain in the area. Ovarian cysts, intestinal problems, constipation, gas, bladder infections etc. The next step would be a visit to your doctor to try and narrow down the many causes of lower abdominal pain.

My regular md wants to do pcos testing on me like do ultra sound on ovaries?

Testing a good idea: Hello, I am sure that the Dr. Has noted some signs that lead he/she to recommend PCOS testing. Ultrasound of the ovaries along with hormonal testing is a good idea and will give the Dr. The answers to his/her clinical impression. To start treatment now will positively impact your health now and later if you do in fact have this syndrome (PCOS)

Had a small cist on my ovary months ago havnt been back 2get scan 2 see if it has gone. Had no pain or nothing should I go back to get a ultra sound?

Yes: Your doctor ordered it for a reason. Just because the one cyst is gone, there may be more, and there may be other things that need a second look. Following a logical course (which this is) is in your best interest.

My ultra sound report. Endometrium 11 mm. And left ovary is enlarged wid thin walled rounded eyst of size 34mm. S/o functional eyst. What does it mean?

Ovarian cyst: It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring. Most are cysts which develops from tissue that changes in the normal process of ovulation. They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks.

Had ultra sound 3 times on my ovary. Left always very enlarged, but no cysts. It's causing discomfort, as I can feel it. What could this be?

Had ultra sound 3 times on my ovary. Left always very enlarged, but no cysts. It's causing discomfort, as I can feel it. What could this be?

Not likely cancer: 3 ultrasounds and no change, sounds stable, Ovary cancer at 31 very unusual. If lots of pain and worse with periods more likely endometriosis. This may require a surgical investigation. Regrettably blood tumor markers are also elevated by endometriosis.

My right ovary is sized 4.0 and 2.6 and the ultra sound report says that its small I want to know the possible diseases which it can cause and cure?

Small?: The average size of human pre-menopausal womans ovary is generaly about 3cm x 2cm x 1 cm. So, perhaps the use of the word 'small' was intended to be compared with large. Sounds normal to me. Small ovaries are associated with many different conditions, so you might ask the person who ordered the test what they were looking for.

I had an ultra sound for cysts on my ovary and they found 5 spots on my liver what could that be?

I had an ultra sound for cysts on my ovary and they found 5 spots on my liver what could that be?

Hemangiomas: A little more detail on the spots found on the liver can narrow down the possibilities. A collection of blood vessels (hemangiomas) can sometimes be identified on ultrasound. Alternatives include fluid filled cysts such as liver cysts, parasitic infections (echinoccocus infections) etc. Talk to your physician for appropriate evaluation.

I had a pelvic ultra sound in jan., 2014 and my ovaries were good, does this mean they are still good.

No.: A normal US then does not guarantee anything now, but it would be quite unusual for something to suddenly happen to your ovaries which have been "normal" up until 10 months ago. Not sure why anyone was looking at your ovaries - you must have had symptoms which prompted a look. You should discuss this with your doc.

Had cyst removed from right ovary along with my about a year ago, but now am experiencing pain on my left side. Ultra sound good should I worry?

Other cause: There are several causes for left lower quadrant pain besides ovarian cysts. If you are still having pain, return to your doctor for further work up.

What does yellow and red over an ovary in an ultra sound mean?

Normal doppler: This is a normal finding showing blood flow around the ovary. The color confirms flow by the ultrasound. If there was no blood flow the concern for a twisted, torsion, ovary would be high particularly if you were having pain.

Very common: Cysts form every time you ovulate. Sometimes they don't go away. When they get large they can cause problems (torsion). That is the reason we follow them.

Food, medications: Breast pain can result from foods that contain caffeine. Chocolate is a common cause of breast pain. Also some medications can also cause pain. For example cholesterol medicine can have this side effect. Check your medications' side effects

Why does the color yellow and red mean on your ovaries when doing a pelvic ultra sound?

The colors: Are the doppler flow portion of the study. The red, yellow, and blue colors signify the direction of blood flow. It tells us how the veins and arteries are working as related to whether the blood is flowing towards the probe or away from the probe.
