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

It should be painles: Sometimes the study is performed wtih abdominal probe in which case a full bladder is necessary to visualize pelvic organs well. Many times, vaginal probe examination is also performed because this produces superb images as the probe can get very close to the organs being examined.

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?

Yes.: The fact that the cyst contains a solid nodule makes it more likely to be a tumor (either benign, or hopefully not-malignant), and make it important to have surgery to remove it. There are some lab tests that your doctor can order that can help to stratify it as higher or lower risk to be a cancer, but it should be removed. ...Read more

Cysts will resolve: Small cysts on the ovary are very common. The overwhelming majority will resolve on their own without surgery. Although they may hurt the best treatment is to take Ibuprofen for the pain and to wait to see if it goes away. Usually obgyns will repeat the sonogram 6-8 weeks later to confirm the cyst has resolved. ...Read more

I have a simple ovarian cyst of 4,14 cm.what is the possibility of it to rupture? what should I do if I want to be safe until next ultrasound?

I have a simple ovarian cyst of 4,14 cm.what is the possibility of it to rupture? what should I do if I want to be safe until next ultrasound?

Will likely go away: Physiologic simple cysts that are under hormonal influence will come and go often, sometimes by a slow leak, sometimes by a rupture and sometimes by your body essentially absorbing it. Unfortunately rupture can cause pain and sometimes it can bleed, but there is not much you can do to prevent this sequence other than to prevent cyst formation, possibly by using birth control pills. ...Read more
