Ovarian Cysts Pelvic Fluid Ct Scan
Ct scan abd/pelvis, can it be melanoma (had melanoma), what should be done? Mild-low attenuation/left arnexal region likely related to ovarian cyst.
Ct uses xrays taken an 360 degrees combined with a computer to see"inside" the body. The table moves as the xray tube and detectors spin around the patient 10 times a second or more! The image shows excellent soft tissue detail, enhanced with injection of intravenous contrast or oral contrast. This way the body is shown in slices, in any plane, usually axially, but ...Read more
Ct scan showed free fluid from ruptured ovarian cyst follow up ultras showed pelvic fluild dr said no there was not a ruptured cyst how can they tell?
Had ruptured ovarian cyst due to fluid found in pelvis from CT scan. Have been nauseous for a week & spitting constantly since then - help!
See Answer: The ovaries are dynamic organs, with developing follicles that mature, “rupture” – and release the egg at about 22-25mm, and regress. This physiology may cause “mittelschmerz” or ovulation pain that could last for a few days. This is not uncommonly accompanied by some slight fluid in the cul –de - sac or adnexal areas of the pelvis. If symptoms or concern persist please see your dr. To insure. ...Read more
I've been having routine CT scans due to my splenic mass for years. Upon the scans they've been finding a left ovarian cyst that is getting larger, with a small amount of fluid in my pelvis. Never caused me pain all these years except during Intercourse a
More information: Ultrasound can better assess if the cyst is simple, has blood products in it, or is a associated with a soft tissue mass. Color doppler on ultrasound further adds information about blood flow around the cyst. You should know the great majority of ovarian cysts are benign but your doctor can better know from the ultrasound if there is anything concerning or if a followup ultrasound would be useful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Ct resolution has gotten better and better, and a ct scan with IV contrast can usually identify even small ovarian cysts. But if the ovarian cyst ruptures, the ovary usually looks fairly normal on ct. If it was a small cyst that ruptured, the amount of fluid in the pelvis may overlap with normal physiologic fluid. Only if the cyst was large and/or bleeding would the ct likely be diagnostic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a CT scan tell u what type of ovarian cyst you have? Was diagnosed at ER with 3.6 CM cyst and followed up with gyno- she did no further tests
CT always better: CT is always better than ultrasound but for screening purposes the ultrasound causes no radiation effect. If multiple CTs were performed over time the RT could be significant. The ultrasound can tell whether a lesion is solid or cystic and whether the latter is simple or complex. The CT can show detail not seen on ultraound. ...Read more
Painful 3.6 CM ovarian cyst found using a CT scan at ER, no sono so ER and gyno I guess assumed its a follicle cyst, wait it out? Scared of rupture
What are bilateral ovarian cysts? I had CT scan and dr said I have these but no cause for concern. Can this affect my ability to conceive?
It depends: More than likely you have polycystic ovaries which can be common, but may cause problems over time. You might have a higher rate of infertility, irregular cycles and other symptoms related to this finding. If the cysts enlarge that can cause other issues that your gynecologist needs to follow. Get ultrasounds instead of ct scans in the future to follow these cysts decreasing radiation exposure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a CT scan @ ER that diagnosed a 3.6 CM ovarian cyst, followed up with gyno who did no extra tests and sent me back home, do I need a sonogram?
There's blood in my urine. My CT scan just showed a "possible ruptured ovarian cyst." but now, I haven't had to go number 2 in days. Is this related?
Possibly: Sometimes blood in the urine can actually be coming from the rectum. If the doctor does a urinalysis and says there's blood in urine, then you can believe it. Blood from rectum due to constipation is way more common than blood in urine. Your ovarian cyst isn't related to possible blood in urine or rectum. I would take MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) to help have bowel movement, and increase your hydration. ...Read more
Ct scan showed bilateral multiple ovarian cysts with largest being 22*15mm. No irregular menses, no weight issues. What are the complications?
Ct scan uses data from a beam of xrays and reconstructs a cross sectional image of your body. It is a high dose of xrays and used only when the benefits outweigh the risk. Cancer risk is 1 in 500 in children. Also using iodinated contrast might cause transient renal failure in about 5% of patients. (contrast induced nepropathy) most do not explain this to the patient as ...Read more
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
