What does this mean? Questionable right ovary seen. Hypoechoic structure seen measuring 1.5 x 1.6x 1.6 cm? Subcentimeter follicles seen.

It sounds: Like they saw a structure which they think is the right ovary (those measurements would be normal size) but are not completely sure. Talk to your doc. If you only had a transabdominal pelvic US, a transvaginal US might be useful. Also sometimes it can be cleared up simply with a follow up US, the ovaries can be mobile and shift into better visualized positions. ...Read more

Clomid (clomiphene) cd2-6...2 follicles in right ovary (17mm n 15 mm) on cd12. cramps in RO on cd 14...no follicle on cd 16...does it mean ovulation has occured??

Unfortunately, not: ...necessarily. On CD 14, neither follicle had grown to the size for ovulation to occur. On the other hand, a follicle could have continued to mature and release an egg. Before CD 16. If the uncertainty is upsetting to you, your doctor can check certain hormone levels that might tell you if you ovulated or if the follicles simply faded away. Please stay optimistic regardless. ...Read more

Impression on pet CT scan is listed as: follicle on right ovary with associated hypermetabolic activity. What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

Impression on pet CT scan is listed as: follicle on right ovary with associated hypermetabolic activity. What does this mean? Should I be concerned?

Not sure: What really matters is why they did the imaging in the first place. I am going to guess that since you have a history of breast cancer, they were looking for possible distant metastases of this disease. I have personally seen breast cancer spread to the ovaries. If this is their concern, it should be further evaluated. ...Read more
