1cm paraovarian cyst on impressions from pelvic u/s. Dr did u/s in office and said he didn't see it 7 months later. Why?

1cm paraovarian cyst on impressions from pelvic u/s. Dr did u/s in office and said he didn't see it 7 months later. Why?

Cyst: Most likely it wasn't a para-ovarian cyst to begin with, but was an ovarian cyst. Also, possible it could have collapsed (doubt it) or maybe the doc missed it on the 2nd ultrasound. Either way, it's a normal finding. ...Read more

Pelvic u/s done 4 days before start of period showed stripe=28mm and endometrium "somewhat thick" is this abnormal? I'm 33yo.

Pelvic u/s done 4 days before start of period showed stripe=28mm and endometrium "somewhat thick" is this abnormal? I'm 33yo.

Not at that time: Endometrial thickness is something we worry about in postmenopausal women not young women. One would expect a thick lining right before the menstrual cycle. ...Read more

Pelvic u/s showed a 2 CM ovarian cyst. Pain got worse, u/s repeated 2 days later. Cyst was now 4 CM. Will it keep growing that quickly? It hurts a lot

Pelvic u/s showed a 2 CM ovarian cyst. Pain got worse, u/s repeated 2 days later. Cyst was now 4 CM.  Will it keep growing that quickly? It hurts a lot

Can not predict: WE can not predict how an individual cyst will behave over time. The most likely scenario is that a small ovarian cyst like this will resolve on its own over time. Follow up monitoring by your obgyn should be done ...Read more

Had pelvic u/s cos of high WBC in urine. Person that did my u/s said everything looked ok but he will send result to my dr. Should i still be worried?

Had pelvic u/s cos of high WBC in urine. Person that did my u/s said everything looked ok but he will send result to my dr. Should i still be worried?

Somewhat: The most common cause of a high urine white cell count is an infection of the bladder. This won't show on ultrasound, which is done to exclude other possible causes, some very serious. So if the u/s is negative, according to the tech who did it, that's good news, but you still have to find out why there are white blood cells in the urine and be treated for that--it isn't normal. Ask your doctor. ...Read more

Baby born 20 weeks ago, pp bleed stopped at 6 w. Started spotting at 8 w, most days bright red when wiping, occ shows on liner. Pelvic u/s normal. Causes?

May be normal: After pregnancy, it can take a while for normal menstrual cycles to resume. This is especially true if breast feeding. Normal cycles, if not breast feeding, usually resume by six months postpartum. ...Read more

Yes: If u are breast feeding u may not get a cycle until u cut down to 1-2 times per day, your doc is right and he or she did the right thing to do an ultraosund. ...Read more

Pelvic U/S showed 4.6x4.7 mass with numerous echoes in left adnexal region. What does that mean exactly? Dr adamantly recommended biopsy. Cancer?

Pelvic U/S showed 4.6x4.7 mass with numerous echoes in left adnexal region. What does that mean exactly? Dr adamantly recommended biopsy. Cancer?

Not necessarily but-: Adenexal masses are common in women. Most of them are benign cysts. But if they are complex cysts like yours appears to be, then further evaluation including biopsy/removal of this mass should be considered. I would advise you to follow your Gynecologist's recommendations. ...Read more

Lmp was on 4/23 had sex on 4/25 and was in the er 5/1blood work came back neg and pelvic u/s. Would they see if I conceived? I have 30 day regcycles

You are "unlikely": To be pregnant if sex was 2 days after your last period! You are obviously concerned that you had unprotected sex...a word to the wise...PROTECT YOURSELF...with a method YOU CONTROL!\


Hope this helps!

Pelvic u/s done 2 months postpartum. Uterine lining was 4mm... Did not have period until 8 months postpartum. What's a normal thickness postpartum?

Sonogram: The lining of your uterus changes throughout your cycle. If you were premenstrual meaning right before your period I would expect it to be thicker. If you did the sonogram right after your period I would expect it to be thinner or less that 4mm. ...Read more

PELVIC U/S: LEFT OVARIAN 1.4 CM CYST OR FOLLICLE, RIGHT OVARY CONTAINS FEW SMALL FOLLICLES THE LARGEST 8MM, IS THIS NORMAL? UNABLE TO CONCEIVE 7+ YRS.

Fertility : No need to yell at us. An ultrasound is not, in any way, an infertility work up. There are a dozen physical and chemical processes in conception. A fertility specialist will test each one to determine why you can't conceive. You will not find the answer to your question on the internet. Go to a real infertility specialist. ...Read more

Pelvic u/s done 2 months postpartum (vaginal birth) says "no significant free fluid in pelvis". Is this normal? Shouldn't there be 'none"?

Pelvic u/s done 2 months postpartum (vaginal birth) says "no significant free fluid in pelvis". Is this normal? Shouldn't there be 'none"?

Pelvic Fluid: There is always a small amount of fluid in the abdominal cavity. Fluid leaks from your blood vessels, your intestines and other areas and is absorbed by other systems within your body to keep things moving. It is totally normal. When there is a large amount of fluid, that becomes abnormal and we need to find the cause of the fluid. ...Read more

Bloated last few months. (pelvic distention) some weight gain. Sometimes burping food back up.  Pelvic u/s normal. Simethicone not helping. Help.

When to get checked: Your docs have been able to tell you a few things that you do not have with your current tests. If your symptoms are persisting then get back in with your doc. Okay to ask for RUQ ultrasound to look for gallstones. You may also need an egd/scope to look in your stomach. ...Read more

I have chronic pelvic pain & lately I've been seeing blood in my stool.Could it be endometriosis complications?Can pelvic u.s show adhesions on colon?

See below: Blood in your stool is most likely hemorrhoids or a problem in the colon. You should report this to your doctor ASAP. Endometriosis doesn't usually cause blood in the colon. Ultrasound is not a good imaging modality to see adhesions on the colon. Best wishes! ...Read more

Pelvic pain, U/S Tech said I had "chocolate chip" ovaries but said I had no cyst or any reason for concern, awaiting results from doctor. Thoughts?

Pelvic pain, U/S Tech said I had "chocolate chip" ovaries but said I had no cyst or any reason for concern, awaiting results from doctor. Thoughts?

Ultrasound: Although ultrasound technicians are very good at what they do, that is doing the ultrasound, they are not Physicians. I can not count the number of times I have had patients scared to death of random comments they have made as they have done ultrasounds. You need to wait for the Radiologist, a Physician, to read the ultrasound and report it to your doctor. He will then give you the correct findings ...Read more

CA 125 level in a 70yr woman who had hysterectomy with removal of ovaries+Fallopian tubes=341U/ml. Possibillity? Waiting for results of pelvic+abd u/s.

CA 125 level in a 70yr woman who had hysterectomy with removal of ovaries+Fallopian tubes=341U/ml. Possibillity? Waiting for results of pelvic+abd u/s.

Waiting is hard: Although it's hard to wait, your doctor is evaluating you for possible abdominal or pelvic cancers which can show up even after removal of the uterus, tubes, and ovaries. They may also recommend a CT (cat scan) or PET scan If the u/s isn't helpful. Best wishes for good results! ...Read more
