Meanwhile, upload US report ...Read more

Pelvic pain for 4 months. 3 different ultrasounds came back normal. Mri showed cyst over 5cm on both ovaries. Why did they not show up on ultrasound?
Intriguing question.: This is very unusual as ultrasound is excellent at noticing ovarian cysts. If there was time lapsed between u/s and MRI then the cysts could have developed. If both ovaries are situated higher in the pelvis than usual (which would be normal), and if the u/s techs failed to search well, then they could have been missed. Highly unlikely that 3 u/s exams each missed them. New pathology is likely. ...Read more
