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

Pevlic ultrasound my cyst is 4.3x4.0x4.0 after 3 month my cyst is big 4.1x 3.7 x3.7 what dase that mean my cyst is chrinking?

Minimal decrease+: Individual variation in the radiologist's interpretation, actual reduction in the size of the size little bit is possible. But this reduction by 2-3 mm is not too much redcution , hence need to be followed by the recommendation of the gynaecologist, based on your symptoms , with periodic scans- ultrasound(most of the time should be okay).

Not an issue : Small cysts are common. They are not related to fertility. At 39 years old you should discuss your fertility with your doctor. Consider an amh test.

Not likely: What you described suggests ovarian cystic lesion and hormonal imbalance. Since you are already under the care of a doctor, it would be prudent to follow her/his advice.

Pain in the lower left abdomen for about 3 months. Had ultrasound all organs ok but cyst in left ovary got vagynal ultrasound no cyst .What can it be?

Ovarian cysts: The left ovarian cyst seen on the ultrasound could cause your left abdominal pain. Depending on the size, they are often observed and can resolve over time. In your age group, other causes are less common. If this pain persists, a further workup is needed. If everything is negative, then you should discuss treating this cyst to see if the pain resolves.

In er, ultrasound showed cysts on both ovaries, and one cyst was lumpy. Could this be ovarian cancer?

In er, ultrasound showed cysts on both ovaries, and one cyst was lumpy.  Could this be ovarian cancer?

It might be.: A cyst might be simple or multi-loculated, that is, many cysts in one with many walls that could contain cancer cells. The cyst might be filled with blood, a hemorrhagic cyst, or fluid, or be something else entirely. That's why it should be examined and possibly removed by laparoscopy, etc.. It would be wise to see your doctor for an exam. Good luck.

My pelvic ultrasound:tiny cyst with in the endometrium in the endometrial body, could be an early gestational sac or an endom. Cyst. What could it be?

My pelvic ultrasound:tiny cyst with in the endometrium in the endometrial body, could be an early gestational sac or an endom. Cyst. What could it be?

Could be: These findings a very non-specific. If there is a chance you might be pregnant then an eary gestational sac is a consideration which you could test with a urine pregnancy test. Endometrial cysts do also happen although i might suspect not that common.

Several: Tube(s) could be blocked or damaged, issues with endometriosis or egg quality/fertilization. Or nothing could be wrong and a few more months could do the trick!

Compression of cecum found on colonoscopy, ultrasound w/ cyst L ovary, abdomen CT clear. any other tests to take? Thoughts on cause of compression?

Compression of cecum found on colonoscopy, ultrasound w/ cyst L ovary, abdomen CT clear.  any other tests to take? Thoughts on cause of compression?

Not unless symptoms: If you aren't having symptoms from your "diagnosis" (compression of the cecum) then chances are that the finding is benign. It could have been from the ovarian cyst. (Once you reach menopause, ovarian cysts are rare & should be followed but at your age, understandable). It could have been from scarring. In any case, absent blood or constipation, it's not causing any harm and scans are neg. So relx

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.

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.

I've bn for CT and ultrasound scans cysts found in ovaries and blockage in fallopian  tube docs said not cause of pain thats in vagina and abdomen?

Would have to see: The report, but you need a complete workup including bowel and urinary tract evaluation and then you may need a laparoscopy or robotic sugery to look into the pelvis as you may have adhesions or endometriosis which will not show up on the scan , but if it says the tubes are blocked you could have adhesions and scar tissue in other parts of your pelvis which can cause pain which can be seen at surg.

My ultrasound showed cyst on left ovary. Could this possibly be the start of a pregnancy?

My ultrasound showed cyst on left ovary. Could this possibly be the start of a pregnancy?

Ovarian "cysts": Or follicles are a normal monthly occurrence in ovulating women. If an egg is released and fertilized then a pregnancy can result. The best way to know if you are pregnant is to get a pregnancy test.

I am 4 weeks pregnant . Internal ultrasound says "cyst structures measuring 10 mm, 8mm seen lateral to right ovary" is it something to be worried about?

I am 4 weeks pregnant . Internal ultrasound says "cyst structures measuring 10 mm, 8mm seen lateral to right ovary" is it something to be worried about?

Normal Cysts: This can be totally normal. In fact i would be worried if i did not see a cyst in your ovary because that would mean that you were not creating eggs. A 10mm and a 8mm cyst is normal; anything 50mm or anything with grey matter in it is more concerning. Your md can follow up in a few months. Make sure you're having regular periods.

Urine test positive,wanted to abort but no pregnancy seen on ultrasound, ovarian cyst found,wch made me waited for a week,m really worried,tensed .

Confirm pregnancy: In view of positive urine pregnancy test with negative ultrasound could mean early pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy.
Your quantitative hcg should be followed every 2days for normal rise. Your transvaginal ultrasound should be done once hcg is greater than 2,000 and if unable to locate the IUP, will consider ectopic pregnancy. For any pelvic pain or vaginal bleeding, go to the hospital.

Cyst (Definition)

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. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
