Transvaginal Ultrasound Follicle Cyst
Cysts,: When simple, are internally dark on ultrasound as the fluid reflects few of the sound waves. In essence, a smooth, round, black or dark, structure in the ovary is seen. Also, no internal blood flow on doppler. ...Read more
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
I recently diagnosed with polycystic ovary cyst bilateral thru my transvaginal ultrasound. I'm having hotflashes for a week now, is this related?

The diagnosis may have increased your anxiety. R u sleeping at night? A drug called an snri can help vasomotor sx's. You may have high Insulin and then get low blood sugar, this can cause ur sx's. Look up metformin and pcos. ...Read more
Transvaginal ultrasound found multiple little cysts on my left ovary and 3 large cysts on my right ovary. Do they need to be removed to reduce my pain?
Typically not: Cysts are just bags of water. They are extremely common in young women. They typically disappear with no treatment whatsoever. When they enlarge, they can cause pain which may require pain medication. If large, the doctor may elect to follow these cysts by ultrasound, and in unusual circumstances, may need to remove a cyst surgically. Talk to your Ob/Gyn. ...Read more

Slight discomfort: Usually you get undressed from the waist down and lay down on a table with stirrups for your heels. A long, skinny, lubricated ultrasound transducer is inserted into the vagina by the technician. Once it is in the tech will move it from place to place, taking pictures of the uterus, ovaries and other pelvic structures. When everything has been seen and recorded, the transducer is removed. ...Read more
Can endometriosis be detected by a transvaginal ultrasound? I had one done and was told I had a right ovarian cyst but nothing else.
Had transvaginal ultrasound for prolong period. They said everything is normal. But the results read ovaries not seen. Could cyst still be ruled out?

How accurate is transvaginal ultrasound in distinguishing between malignant cysts and benign cysts in PCOS? Can they be misinterpreted?
Misinterpreted, but: TVUS is helpful, but limited in distinguishing benign vs. Malignant ovarian cysts. There are US features, coupled with clinical data and blood testing in select cases, that go a long way toward assessing risk. There are research protocols (e.g. MD Anderson) for ovarian cancer screening. The cyst (s) in PCOS would rarely be confused for malignancies, the look and clinical history are different. ...Read more

Transvaginal ultrasound shows multiple follicles on left ovary (pcos appearance) and area with hypoechoic center and echogenic rim?
Hormonal imbalances: Multiple follicles is a sign of high estrogen levels. Estrogen can be biotransformed into testosterone via the enzyme aromatase. Aromatase enzyme is increased by high Insulin levels. A high carb diet will increase both Insulin (via stimulatlon of pancreas) and estrogen (via competetive inhibition of glucoronidase enzyme) low carb diet is beneficial to reduce estrogen and insulin. ...Read more

Transvaginal Ultrasound 5mm mass, no bloodflow. 1.1cm endometrium; 1.5cm probable hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Should I worry? Very heavy menses, IV Fe.
Sono not worrisome: The findings on your transvaginal sonogram do not seem to be cause for alarm but unfortunately they do not explain why you have "very heavy menses" and need IV Fe...which are "causes to worry". It would be good to consult a hematologist to rule out a blood coagulation disorder and a Reproductive Endocrinologist to find out why you may or may not be ovulating regularly and why you bleed heavily. ...Read more

I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
Can u still have endometriosis or ovarian cancer w/ a clear transvaginal ultrasound? My doc says my ovaries are normal and my tiny cyst is gone. I have tons of pelvic pain & my mom has the brca2 gene.
Yes and No:
Yes: you could definitely have endometriosis with a clear ultrasound, but would not likely have an endometrioma of the ovary
no: it would be pretty unlikely to have ovarian cancer with a clear ultrasound and even if you did have extremely early undetectable cancer, it would not cause pain. ...Read more
I had a transvaginal ultrasound today & cysts were found on my ovaries? How serious is this? I'm 52 & only been in menopause 1 year.
Depends: Simple cyst can occur in the menopause and are usually benign (non cancerous). Its more concerning if you have a family history of ovarian and/or breast cancer in your family or if the cyst is complex. It might be a good idea to get a blood test called a ca-125 and to clarify with your provider if the cysts are simple or complex. ...Read more
If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?
Part of complete u/s: Routine female pelvic ultrasound has two portions to the exam. The exam starts with a full bladder and scanning with a fan shaped ultrasound (u/s) probe over the lower abdomen and pubic area. Then the pt is asked to empty her bladder and then a thin long u/s probe is inserted into the vagina for additional pictures. This portion is important and significantly improves parts of the evaluation. ...Read more
Ultrasound: An ultrasound is an imaging study in which a probe emits and receives sound waves which rebound off of internal organs in order to visualize them. For a transvaginal ultrasound a specially designed probe is lubricated and placed into the vagina in order to better visualize pelvic organs/ structures. ...Read more
Yes: The earlier ultrasounds are more accurate than the later ones. 7 weeks is probably correct. ...Read more
It depends: Transvag us exam is an excellent tool to examine pelvic and lower abdonimal organs. Depends on the target of interest (ovary, appendix...) and the disease being investigated (mass, abscess...) it can at times be uncomfortable. Don't be afraid of the instrument. If you use tampon, you can handle the probe. ...Read more
No: A transvaginal ultrasound is done by inserting an ultrasound probe into the vagina to better evaluate the pelvic organs. Lubrication is applied to the top of the probe to ease insertion. An ultrasound should not be painful. Some women describe a "pressure" sensation but pain should not be experienced. ...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.
