i have severe pain on my stomach, and the ultrasound and ct scan showed a cyst on my right ovary. i also have a endometriosis. will the cyst go away?

Depends

Ultrasound
It depends on what kind of cyst it is and how big it is. An endometriotic cyst may shrink with certain medications, but usually requires surgery. Simple cysts frequently resolve on their own, especially they are not large. There are many other types of cysts and rumors of the ovary that may require surgery.

Will an ultrasound help my doctor diagnose endometriosis?

Yes

Sonogram
mainly if there is a complex cyst in the ovaries that could help prepare the plan for surgery. A negative ultrasound does not exclude the disease.

Sharp abdomen unsettling pain thats hits the back too. No pain killer has helped. Patieny has endometriosis but mild. Had ultrasound no stones?

Further workup

Sonogram
Clearly further workup is needed. Not everything shows up on an ultrasound. Even though the gallstones were not seen, the gallbladder itself could still be quite diseased and that would require a different type of scan. Please make sure that the patient is seen again and carefully re-evaluated using necessary scans such as a CT scan or an MRI. Do not give up until the cause is found.

Dr. Collin Smikle answered:

What to expect when I get my ultrasound for endometriosis?

Endometriosis

Endometriosis
The ultrasound should let you know if you have a endometrioma (cyst from endometriosis) in your ovary. It won't help if you have scar tissue or other types of endometriosis. Those can only be identified surgically.

Does endometriosis show up on an ultrasound?

No

Endometriosis
No. Endometriosis is diagnosed based on symptoms or during surgery. The only way to for sure know it is endometriosis is to see it at surgery and biopsy the spot.

Does a "cloudy" uterus in an ultrasound mean endometriosis?

Unsure

Sonogram
It is not possible to determine with 100% certainty the presence of endometriosis with ultrasound findings. There are indications seen on ultrasound that are suggestive of endometriosis.

Dr. Alfredo Nieves answered:

How helpful is a pelvic sonogram (ultrasound) in diagnosis of endometriosis?

Endo dx

Endometriosis
Only of there is a mass, ultrsound is very non specific tool. Laparoscopy continues to be the gold standard for the diagnosis of endometriosis.

How accurate is a 2D ultrasound at diagnosing gynecological issues like PCOS, fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, etc...?

Depends

Cyst
Cysts and fibroids are easy to see. Endometriosis is not diagnosed by ultrasound. PCOS is diagnosed by medical history and lab work using an ultrasound as supplemental evidence

Would a trans vaginal ultrasound/pelvic ultrasound detect endometriosis ?

Give indication

Endometriosis
XR, and anything without direct visualization give an indication as to what is suspected. The symptoms, the exam and the history makes a doctor arrive at a diagnosis as the most likely thing. If in doubt, then direct visualization needed. I hope that gives you reassurance.

I'm 34. I always get diarrhea on the first day of my period. Any thoughts what could cause it? I do not have endometriosis by ultrasound.

Yes

Menstrual_cycle
Periods are controlled by the lower part of the brain and you have IBS that is caused by an unwanted message to the bowel. IBS is often a part of PMS and the commonest cause by far is poor diet, especially sugar
