Usually: Variation of several millimeters is not uncommon and sometimes a technical issue on the part of the person performing the scan.

If you had 2 ultrasounds showing you had a cyst in your right ovary .Then had surgery to take it out and found no cyst or evidence of it what's up ?
Unfortunate: That is unusual. Either the cyst resolved on its own between the last ultrasound and the surgery. Or the cyst was present at surgery but just not seen, or the cyst was never there and something else was appearing to be a cyst. Either way it is certainly unfortunate you had to undergo surgery with no results. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
