Well circumscribed hypoechoic 4.8 cm cystic mass. Thickened internal septations, perifpheral mural nodularity and calcification. Pain upper abdomen.
Ovarian: I assume the report is describing an ovarian cyst which may be fluid filled. If so, your gynecologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you. It is not clear if this is the cause of your abdominal discomfort since the discomfort is not in the pelvic area. Other imaging studies may be recommended. ...Read more

Prob lipoma.: An ultrasound can see the difference between a lymph node and a lipoma. So if the doctor (radiologist) said lipoma, it's a lipoma. Even so, if it keeps growing, it's best to have it biopsied. Some tumors, like liposarcomas, can masquerade as lipomas because they are made of fat. Any lump that continues to grow eventually needs a biopsy. I hope that helps! ...Read more
