Routine scan found a small" spot" "looks like fluid" on my liver and a "adnexal lesion" next to my ovary "could be lymph node". Follow up?

See answer: Very common, and more the rule than the exception, nowadays for current imaging studies (ct, ultrasound, mri, etc) to detect and report what are clinically insignificant findings.

Best to ask your md who ordered the scan re: follow-up. ...Read more

Mass near right ovary found a year ago, comes and goes, painless. Now I have swollen lymph nodes. Are these related and what could it be?

Mass near right ovary found a year ago, comes and goes, painless. Now I have swollen lymph nodes. Are these related and what could it be?

Lymph nodes are of no concern unless they are bigger than one inch in sixe and getting bigger. I would not do anything unless you have any symptoms related to your pelvic organs. You should relax and quit worrying. ...Read more

In a new state. Autonomic dz is pots. Pit, liver, ovary adenomas. Thyroid has new solid nodules and nodes. Only bx'd node.? Ask for excision?

In a new state. Autonomic dz is pots. Pit, liver, ovary adenomas. Thyroid has new solid nodules and nodes. Only bx'd node.? Ask for excision?

Thyroid nodules: I know more about pots than thyroid but in general if you have a node biopsied, if there is not diagnosis, they will likely biopsy nodule to determine whether to excise. If there is a diagnosis based on node biopsy, that will lead to best recommendation. Decision depends on the pathology and extent of tissue involved. If hyperthyroid, that can explain what was diagnosed as pots, as not pots. ...Read more

Very concerning: Ascites is always very concerning. Enlarged lymph nodes and ascites can be caused by infections but, of course, cancer is also a possibility. You definitely need to follow up with your doctor to find the diagnosis and begin treatment. Hopefully it will be something that is easily treated and very curable. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can a transvaginal ultrasound and/or pelvic ultrasound show enlarged lymph nodes around the ovary?

Can a transvaginal ultrasound and/or pelvic ultrasound show enlarged lymph nodes around the ovary?

Yes,: But not reliably. Regional bowel gas can obscure pelvic lymph nodes. Also the position of the ovaries is variable, and they may not be situated next to internal iliac nodal chains. So not seeing enlarged lymph nodes on a pelvic sonogram is not sufficient to exclude them. CT or MRI is much better. ...Read more
