Show Me A Picture Of A 7 Cm Ovarian Cyst
I have an hypoechoic ovarian nodule 3.1 x 1.4 x 1.9 cm in my right ovarian, the radiologist said its a complicated or hemorrhagic cyst. What this mean?
Benign: Ovarian Cysts can be simple meaning uniformed, fluid filled, clear, etc. or complex meaning contains both solid and liquid parts, blood or mucous. A hemorrhagic cyst is one that bled into itself and now has liquid or clotted blood. It is a frequent occurrence and is not worrisome although it can be painful sometimes. ...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
Ct found ovarian cystic mass, does that mean a cyst. Can a CT scan tell the difference between a cyst and tumor? Worried about ovarian cancer.
Scan shows the left ovary has a 3cm echogenic cyst, probably a haemorrhagic follicular cyst.
Will this cause infertility issues? Thank you.
I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. may reflect a large endometrioma. Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?
Need firm dx: MRI can be helpful to firm up the diagnosis of endometrioma and be an adjunct to ultrasound. MRI may find other lesions. On the other hand laparoscopy has the advantage of getting tissue and performing therapeutics. A small amount of free fluid is non-specific and not unexpected for a cystic lesion of that size. Decisions as to how to proceed require clinical correlation and advice of GYN. ...Read more
Can you tell me what a 2.4 CM left ovarian cystic lesion with 8mm enhancing mural nodule suspicious of neoplasm.
It is suspicious: You should ask your doctor what it means in terms of future follow up. Since it is suspicious, a repeat imaging study needs to be done in 2 months. I would also advise you to find out if a ca125 test has been done or not? This might provide further guidance as to the possibility of ovarian cancer(if the ca125 is high now, removal of this lesion(cyst) should be considered sooner than later). ...Read more
I am a 24 year old female with the following results from a transvagina scan; uterus (74x47x53mm), endometrial thickness of 20mm, ovarian cyst 15mm?
Normal scan: The size of the uterus and thickness of the endometrium are normal. You have a small ovarian cyst. This is also a normal finding. Your body makes a small ovarian cyst each month in preparation for ovulation. All these ultrasound findings are normal. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Doctor diagnosed 1.4 CM renal cyst . I had an ultrasound that showed a 1.4 CM renal cyst with a question of calcification in cyst wall. Now I have to get a CT scan. How bad could this be. Am scared out of my mind.
Cyst: You have a small cyst, and it is not unusual to find cyst on US. Calcification itself doesn't make it cancer. I would proceed with the CT if that what has been ordered, and then see a Urologist. Was simple or complex cyst on US? The CT should show simple vs other cyst. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Rupture is serious: Dermoids can have hair and teeth in them, so are complex on U/S,. The black stuff in the picture is hair. They often grow slowly but rarely rupture. If so, it's like appendicitis and needs immediate surgery. U/S is a good screen for ovarian masses, but with a "surgical pelvis" CT is done. An early sign of impending rupture on U/S might be fluid in the pelvis, but this is not diagnostic. ...Read more
HI Dr. What is the difference between a simple Pineal cyst and a complex Pineal Cyst. Looks like my MRI showed a 1.3 CM Complex Pineal Cyst. Thank you?
Liquid vs other stuf: A simple cyst generally contains only fluid. A complex cyst is a sac that contains mostly fluid (liquid) but also some material - cells / tissue or colloid or something solid - inside. That solid material makes its appearance different than just a fluid-filled sac. Larger (> 1cm) cysts in the pineal gland can't be distinguished from cystic tumors & so repeated scans are generally the rule. TTYD. ...Read more

Ultrasound shows I have an ovarian cyst, 5cm, a thick septation, small amount of cul-de-sac fluid, tumor, infection. Is this ok? Wanna avoid surgery.
As long: As there are no findings worrisome for ovarian cancer it is reasonable to follow this cyst with an ultrasound in 3 months. Cancers tend to have soft tissue parts in addition to the cystic areas. They may also have increased blood flow compared to cysts. Best to discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more
Not very serious.: Hey blood-filled for hemorrhagic cyst is not uncommon. If it is not painful then it can be observed to see if it will resolve without treatment. If a hemorrhagic cyst causes pain or does not resolve and it may need to be removed surgically. Hope this helps. ...Read more
