40yr, not preg female. Pelvic ultrasound; thickened endometrium meas1.9cm. Right corpus luteal cyst in adnexa meas. 2.3cm what does this mean?

Not unusual: It is not unusual to have cysts. Endometrium varies it's thickness depending on where you are in your monthly cycle. This may not be unusual for you. Without seeing the study, the findings could be endometrial hyperplasia or polyps. Others are still possible but you should talk to your doctor and ask for the explaination ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Ultrasound showed thickened endometrium (1.4 cm) on day 12 of cycle and multiple fibroids. Is this concerning?

Ultrasound showed thickened endometrium (1.4 cm) on day 12 of cycle and multiple fibroids. Is this concerning?

A little: A thickend endometrium in a 29 year woman on day 12 of her cycle isn't really concerning. Its normal. But multiple fibroids are a little concerning. Fibroids aren't cancer but they tend to get bigger with time and cause heavy, painful periods. They can also make it harder to get pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

My ultrasound state s heterogenous uterus consider diffuse myomitosis /adenomyosis. With mderate thickening endometrium 1.5cm is this cancerous?

My ultrasound state s heterogenous uterus consider diffuse myomitosis /adenomyosis. With mderate thickening endometrium 1.5cm is this cancerous?

Easy To Find Out: Adenomyosis (endometriosis interna) is simply endometrial glands that are in the muscle layer of the uterus. It can cause heavier, irreg bleeding & more painful menses (menometrorrhagia & dysmenorrhea). Your us may simply be reflecting this finding. However, abnormal bleeding can also signify endometrial hyperplasia (pre-cancerous) or worse and at a minimum a biopsy (emb) is recommended. Take care. ...Read more

Ultrasound results = thickened heterogeneous endrometrium, 1.8cm. 3cm hemorrhagic cyst left ovary. Done 3 days prior to start of cycle. Concern?

Not a concern: The endometrial thickness is fine as long as you are ovulating and not postmenopausal. The hemorrhagic cyst is also of no concern and does not require follow up. ...Read more

I am 5 days late for my period. I got off BC 4 weeks ago. Sonogram showed thickened endometrium yesterday. HPT are negative. Could I be pregnant.

I am 5 days late for my period. I got off BC 4 weeks ago. Sonogram showed thickened endometrium yesterday. HPT are negative. Could I be pregnant.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

My endometrium measured 1.2 centimeters in an ultrasound, should I be concerned?

My endometrium measured 1.2 centimeters in an ultrasound, should I be concerned?

Menopause matters: If you are past menopause, this is considered abnormal. Pre-menopause up to 1.5cm is ok. Post menopause, up to 8mm ok if no symptoms (abnormal bleeding). If symptomatic only 4mm is allowed post menopause. Even if abnormally thickened, it is not necessarily cancer. These are just ultrasound standards that have been set to determine who needs further testing (usually with biopsy). ...Read more

I am 57 years old and had an ultrasound and a biopsy for a 10.6mm thick endometrium. Is this likely to be non serious?

I am 57 years old and had an ultrasound and a biopsy for a 10.6mm thick endometrium. Is this likely to be non serious?

Be patient: Your biopsy report should be back within 4 days in most institutions. Post menopausal endometrial thickening can be due to benign conditions such as polyps, simple hyperplasia, scarring, sub mucosal fibroids. However the biopsy was done to rule out atypical hyperplasia, or uterine cancer. The odds are in you favor. ...Read more

I am 37, no periods, had an ablation in 08.Recently abd pains resulting in ultrasound showing 15mm endometrium. Appt in 2 wks. Should I be concerned?

Abdominal pain: If you are asking if your ultrasounds endometrial thickness is abnormal then the answer is no it is normal. One would not expect the endometrial thickness to be realted to pain though. If you are in pain then two weeks seems like a long time to wait. ...Read more

Ultrasound showed thick endometrium and empty ovaries, does that mean I haven't ovulated and haven't conceived?

Not enough info: There is not enough info here to evaluate the sonogram findings. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. The endometrial thickness evaluation depends on where you are in the menstrual cycles. "Empty ovaries" is not a term that is normally used so I would ask your Obgyn to explain what is meant by that phrase. ...Read more

I have a 1.2 CM endometrium thickness during my ultrasound 4 days after my menstration. Is it normal? I am 33 years old, married with 1 daughter (5 yo

Yes: A 1.2 cm endometrium at your age and after a cycle is upper limits of normal but it is normal. More important is the reason for the ultrasound. If it was for abnormal bleeding and the only abnormality is the endometrium than more needs to be done to evaluate the problem. ...Read more
