What exactly is a complex dermoid ovarian cyst with an enhancing mural nodule? And how serious is it?

What exactly is a complex dermoid ovarian cyst with an enhancing mural nodule? And how serious is it?

Not cancer: A dermoid cyst is a benign type of turmor containing multiple types of tissue and has a characteristic appearance under sonography. It will always have a complex appearance and the mural nodule is simply part of that. Most dermoids gradually get bigger and have to be removed at some point, but if it remains stable it could be watched. Surgery can be done day surgery with small incisions. ...Read more

I have two ovarian cysts, one complex and one mural nodule. They are very painful. I've had one in the past. Does this affect fertility/having kids?

I have two ovarian cysts, one complex and one mural nodule. They are very painful. I've had one in the past. Does this affect fertility/having kids?

Gynecology consult: Knowing a woman's age is a prerequisite to evaluate ovarian masses. I have not heard of a "mural nodule" in the context of ultrasound of the ovary. Complex cysts at times are benign ovarian masses, for example, a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, which is the result of ovulation, at times they can be precursors of malignancy. The findings described should be discussed with a gynecologist. ...Read more

13 year old daughter has an incidental finding of mildly complex cyst (ovarian) of ~3*3*3 cm containing 10*6*5 mm mural nodule. Should I be concerned?

13 year old daughter has an incidental finding of mildly complex cyst (ovarian) of  ~3*3*3 cm containing 10*6*5 mm mural nodule. Should I be concerned?

Not right now: Tell us why was her Ovary checked in the first place? Does she have any symptoms? This cyst can get bigger and the mural nodule can enlarge. This should be re- checked in 3 to 6 months time. if these show further growth then surgical intervention may be required. Find a good Gynecologist to help you sort this out. ...Read more

Can you tell me what a 2.4 CM left ovarian cystic lesion with 8mm enhancing mural nodule suspicious of neoplasm.

It is suspicious: You should ask your doctor what it means in terms of future follow up. Since it is suspicious, a repeat imaging study needs to be done in 2 months. I would also advise you to find out if a ca125 test has been done or not? This might provide further guidance as to the possibility of ovarian cancer(if the ca125 is high now, removal of this lesion(cyst) should be considered sooner than later). ...Read more

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?

Yes.: The fact that the cyst contains a solid nodule makes it more likely to be a tumor (either benign, or hopefully not-malignant), and make it important to have surgery to remove it. There are some lab tests that your doctor can order that can help to stratify it as higher or lower risk to be a cancer, but it should be removed. ...Read more

Bibasilar sub CM pulmonary nodules noted on CT scan.Sclerotic focus in right and left iliac,0.4cm and 0.5cm.1.7cm complex right ovarian cyst.Concerns?

Bibasilar sub CM pulmonary nodules noted on CT scan.Sclerotic focus in right and left iliac,0.4cm and 0.5cm.1.7cm complex right ovarian cyst.Concerns?

Prob. not.: All those items seems relatively benign, ie, not important. If it associated with abnormal labwork, or significant symptoms, then a PET scan may be more useful to identify active disease. If this is the first time the lung nodules have been seen, then a follow up CT in 3-4 months would be recommended. ...Read more
