Had transvag US report says adnexal mass possible dermoid, hemorrhagic cyst or polyps. Neoplastic disease not excluded. What does that mean?

Adnexal mass.: They are giving a differential diagnosis for a mass most probably in the ovary which may include benign or malignant masses. Your Gynecologist is the one who has the clinical information about you might be able to give you an answer regarding what is the most likely diagnosis. ...Read more

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

7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

Likely endometrioma: At your age, ovarian cancer would be exceedingly rare. Ca-125 levels can be elevated in young women for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with cancer. Nasopharyngeal cancer and ovarian have no relation to each other. Your doctor should tell you what features or characteristics the ovarian cyst has, this will tell you what kind of cyst it is. Good luck! ...Read more

Ultrasound says complex ovarian cyst, septated, internal echos and avascular. Says could be possible haemorrhagic cyst but i'm worried of cancer?

Follow-up required: In a patient of your age, it is likely self-limited and very well could represent a hemorrhagic cyst. However, a repeat ultrasound 6 weeks following the first is suggested to document resolution or decrease in size and to re-evaluate for patency of the ovarian artery. ...Read more

Ultrasound revealed 12x9.6x11cm complex cyst with septations and blood flow seen within these septations. 5.7 ova 1 test results. Is this cancer?

Cyst: Not necissarily. A complex septated cyst likely is an abcess. However, if you are concerned you should follow up with the Health Care Provider that ordered the test. ...Read more

Abdominal/lower back pain. Ultrasound results: complex 3.1x3cm hemorrhagic cyst versus endometrioma identified. Recommend followup. What does it mean?

Gyn followup: Followup of these findings should be done with a combination of your gynecologist and the radiology department. An associated orthopedic evaluation for the lower back discomfort may also be in order as this may be unrelated to the above noted findings on ultrasound. ...Read more

Ultrasound report did not mentioncyst type, indicate vol 30cc, 3.1cm cyst on ovary(simple)endometrial thick12mm in secretory phase.Which cyst type ?

Non cancerous: A 3.1 cm "simple" cyst in a woman your age is usually not cancer. They usually resolve on spontaneous. This is something you should worry about. However, you should follow up with your physician as they have recommended. ...Read more

Ultrascanning abdomen report says - retroverted bulky uterus with thickened endometrium, left simple functional ovarian cyst. What does this mean?

See GYN: The thickening of the endometrium (lining of the uterus) needs to be checked out. Usually the doctor will do an endometrial biopsy to see if the cells are normal or abnormal. A functional ovarian cyst is nothing to be concerned about and is just related to ovulation usually. ...Read more

Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?

Cells change gradual: ly. There is a spectrum. Whoever the pathologist was who read the slides of your tissues saw a slight change in them, but not nearly enough to call them frankly cancerous. Anyhow, they are out of your body now, so good riddance. ...Read more

Pathology report states: Postmenapausal Weakly-proliferative endometrium with focal glandular crowding. Focal mucinous metaplasia. Is this something t?

Excess estrogen : This is suggestive of an increased estrogen state and maybe be a precursor to endometrial hyperplasia. alternatively it may be a component of a polyp. If you are in hormone supplements or tamoxifen you should consider stopping them. It warrants follow up with periodic re biopsy yo make sure nothing else is brewing. The good news is they didn't see any tumor. ...Read more

Is a 2cm complex ovarian cyst without internal vascularity cause for concern? 
Ultrasound report said "likely hemorrhagic"

Hemorrhagic cysts: A hemorrhagic cyst is a type of benign ovarian cyst that is very common. Typically one would simply monitor it and repeat the sonogram in 1-3 months to confirm resolution. Your specific case should be evaluated by a doctor after a complete history and physical exam to determine the proper management ...Read more

Complex cystic mass left ovary showing interval increase. Likely presumed endometrioma. Cannot completely exclude cystic neoplasm. What's this mean?

Endometriosis: This sound like a cyst of endometriosis in the ovary. At your age, the risk of cancer is very small, but you need to discuss a treatment plan with your GYN. This will likely require surgery for removal. ...Read more

Would a hysterectomy be wise with an ultrasound result (premenopausal) complicated hypoechoic cyst on ovary and endometrial stripe of 12.9 mm?

Would a hysterectomy be wise with an ultrasound result (premenopausal) complicated hypoechoic cyst on ovary and endometrial stripe of 12.9 mm?

Probably unwise but: A careful medical history and evaluation of your signs and symptoms by a Gyn (including a better description of the size, vascular pattern, blood flow, Doppler characteristics of the ovarian cyst...) would seem wiser. The 12.9 mm findings of your "premenopausal"endometrial lining would also need to be correlated with the day of your menstrual cycle.It too may be normal and need only a reevaluation ...Read more

Ultrasound findings , abnormal bleeding for 5 weeks..Endometrium thickness was 0.7cm uterus is diffusley heterogeneous calcifications both ovaries?

Ultrasound findings ,  abnormal bleeding for 5 weeks..Endometrium thickness was 0.7cm uterus is diffusley heterogeneous calcifications both ovaries?

Dysfunctional Bleed: Abnormal bleeding could be caused by an endometrial abnormality such as a polyp or tumor. A hysterosonogram, in which saline is instilled into the uterine cavity during ultrasound may provide more information. An endometrial biopsy will likely be needed to better define the problem. Irregular bleeding may also be experienced in the perimenopausal period. ...Read more

Ultrasound etc showed cyst on my R Ovary, 5.3 cm, CT scan results (non specific presacral mass) What does this mean? Nurse said MRI will be scheduled

Ovaries can enlarge: for a number of reasons. Some of them can be benign (like a cyst), but some are more serious, unfortunately. Without seeing your images, we can't provide a diagnosis. Your doctor has ordered MRI because US and CT did not allow the radiologist to confidently tell benign from disease. If you would like a second opinion on your studies, you can reach me at healthtap.com/saurbornmd ...Read more

28yo w history of ovarian cysts. Have 1.6cm 'minimally complex w/thin septation' cyst. Is septation cause for alarm? See conflicting opinions online.

28yo w history of ovarian cysts. Have 1.6cm 'minimally complex w/thin septation' cyst. Is septation cause for alarm? See conflicting opinions online.

No alarm: At 1.6cm cyst in a women who is 28 years of age is probably not a big deal. First of all, 1.6cm is very small. This cyst is probably a functional cyst, meaning part of the ovulatory function of the ovary. As such it will usually go away on its own in a few weeks. If you repeat an u/s in a couple of months, you can prove it is gone. Ovarian Cancer is uncommon at your age. Best wishes! ...Read more
