Doctor insights on:
Symptoms Of Adnexal Mass
Ovarian mass: Depends on size and characteristics. If over 10 cm, remove right away. If under 10 cm and simple (looks like a balloon on ultrasound), watch and recheck in 6-8 weeks. If complex on ultrasound (solid or walls or growths on inside), remove right away. Most common is going to be benign teratoma (dermoid). Germ cell cancers are more common in this age group.
Part of uterus: Adnexal masses refer to structues attached to uterus such as ovary or fallopian tube. In either instance the mass can be solid or cystic. If the latter and under 5 cm. And not complex, one watches. If solid, surgery is frequently indicated since this may represent ovarian cancer.See 1 more doctor answer
CAT or MRI: The presence of an adnexal mass suggests a primary ovarian lesion. One must be sure there is no ongoing malignancy in organs such as breast or rectosigmoid colon with spread to ovary and appearance of an adenexal mass. If a primary in ovary considered, excision of lesion required for histologic dx and treatment planning.
Adnexal mass: Not sure what your question is. Please resubmit a specific question you'd like us to help with.See 1 more doctor answer
Ad exalted mass: Means they did not see anything concerning in your ovaries and fallopian tube area and around uterus.
Women with complex adnexal mass need to remove the entire ovary for complete pathologic analysis?
Depends: A complex ovarian cyst is evaluated based on your age, size of the mass, blood tumor markers, and ultrasound findings. Often the ovary needs to be removed but in some circumstances it can be preserved.
Does doctore need to remove complex adnexal mass with intire ovary for complete pathologic diagnosis?
No: You need to remove the whole adnexal mass for a complete path diagnosis, you do not need to remove ovary to make a diagnosis. In risky cases, the ovary should sometimes be removed too, though.
My right adnexal mass is at least partially cystic that demonstrates a homogenous fullness.... What does this mean?
Adenexl fullness.: Comparing what this note means is a bit like tasting wine and telling others what you taste. So you need to talk to the examiner for a translation. My guess the area feels like there is more there than normal and it feels like there are some bubble like areas that could be cysts.
Several possible: May have had a cyst at time of ct which resolved at time of us. Lesion could also be beyond the depth that us can see. Follow up ct or MRI may (emphasize may) be necessary.
Adnexal mass: It is a mass that is seen in the area adjacent to the uterus. Usually this means that it is related to the fallopian tube or ovary on that given side. There are many different things that can be called an "adnexal mass" (i.e. Ovarian cyst, abscess, neoplasm, fibroid, etc). Discuss this with your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
3 months, sometimes: Depends on specifics of the cyst. If it is under 6 c.M. And appearance on us is not worrisome, you can observe up to 3 months - usually unwise to watch much longer than that. Some doctors use blood tests for 'tumor markers' to help with this decision, but these are also just estimators of risk.See 1 more doctor answer
Not always: It is not always better, just sometimes. It depends on risk factors, specifics of the mass, and patient wishes for possible future fertility. I remove ovarian masses up to 8 c.M. All year long without removing an ovary, just have to pick and choose your cases carefully.
Possible: All complex adnexal masses are a theoretical risk for ovarian cancers, but there are many other possibilities too. Risk is estimated by size, apearance on ultrasound, age group, behavior over time, and other things.
Women who have previously complex adnexal mass are at greater risk of developing further on same ovary avarian cancer?
I have a right adnexal mass on my ovaries but partially cystic? What is a adnexal mass? What does partially cystic mean?
Variable answer: Adnexal mass refers to the area around the ovary that has an undiagnosed mass by imaging studies or exam. Partially cystic refers to a fluid filled sac or cyst within or around the ovary. It implies that the rest of the mass may be solid. Follow up is important to determine the reason for a mass and whether or not it is increasing in size. Follow up with your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
What my test mean? A right adnexal mass that was at least partially cystic. Examination demonstrates a homogeneous fullness 2 the right adnexa 4.4cm
Maybe a ovarian cyst: Sounds like you could have an ovarian cyst. It is best to see your family doctor or the doctor that ordered the test to talk about the results and what to do next.
