I was just diagnosed with a normal 1.7cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary via ultra sound. Is it safe if it ruptures?

I was just diagnosed with a normal 1.7cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary via ultra sound. Is it safe if it ruptures?

Sort of...: It can be very painful as the abdomen does not like any other fluid in it! Not blood (why a tiny amount of endometriosis is so painful), and not cyst fluid. Might be smart to talk to doc about emergency pain meds in case you have to come to the er. It also depends on the cyst-it could have just been a ruptured follicle. If you ever get severe low abdominal pain, go to er-let them know it's there. ...Read more

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

Thyroid hyperechoic more cystic fluid filled? & hypoecoic more solid. I know both may need fna, but which would be better for ultra sound to show

Thyroid hyperechoic more cystic fluid filled? & hypoecoic more solid. I know both may need fna, but which would be better for ultra sound to show

Biopsy: Is probably indicated and.... more indicated in the less uniform (multi cystic, hyperechoic) conditions. On the other hand, will need more stabs to see what is going on if it is non-uniform (more than one) ...Read more

When an ultrasound shows that a cyst has ruptured will that indicate that the cyst is not cancerous?

When an ultrasound shows that a cyst has ruptured will that indicate that the cyst is not cancerous?

Not at all: It certainly depends on many things, including location of the cyst and its "pre-rupture" appearnce. Most cysts are benign. However, whether or not a cyst has ruptured has absolutely nothing to do with malignancy. Likely, a good conversation with the doctor who ordered the ultrasound exam for you should help clear things up. ...Read more

My doctor suspects endometriosis or twisting of my left ovary (ultra sound shows no cysts). What are the distinct differences in those two things?

My doctor suspects endometriosis or twisting of my left ovary (ultra sound shows no cysts). What are the distinct differences in those two things?

Difference: Endometriosis is the spread of endometrial tissue from beyond the inside of the uterus into different parts of the abdomen and pelvis. This tissue "menstruates" along with a typical cycle, which can causes enormous pain. Ovarian torsion is the twisting of the ovary (and its vascular supply) along its axis, which can starve the ovary of blood and cause pain. ...Read more

Would a pelvic ultrasound show when a dermoid ovarian cyst has ruptured? What would it show?

Would a pelvic ultrasound show when a dermoid ovarian cyst has ruptured? What would it show?

Rupture is serious: Dermoids can have hair and teeth in them, so are complex on U/S, . The black stuff in the picture is hair. They often grow slowly but rarely rupture. If so, it's like appendicitis and needs immediate surgery.
U/S is a good screen for ovarian masses, but with a "surgical pelvis" CT is done. An early sign of impending rupture on U/S might be fluid in the pelvis, but this is not diagnostic. ...Read more

I had a ultra sound done and the results say I have a bilateral epididymal cyst. How are these treated? Please help

I had a ultra sound done and the results say I have a bilateral epididymal cyst. How are these treated? Please help

Here are some...: For an 18-y-o man, the incidental finding of epididymal cysts should be left alone because almost all these are benign and any procedures done to these areas will pose a high odd of blocking the tubes like that after vasectomy. So, leave them alone. More? Seek counseling from urologists or contact me at www/healthtap. Com/dr-Lin via RQPWJC to login. ...Read more

Internal ultra sound few hrs later started to bleed, brown, now it is red. Heavy 4 3days now. 4cm cyst on ovary discovered. Is this normal?

Ovarian cysts: It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring. Most are cysts which develops from tissue that changes in the normal process of ovulation. They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks. ...Read more

I had an ultra sound for cysts on my ovary and they found 5 spots on my liver what could that be?

Hemangiomas: A little more detail on the spots found on the liver can narrow down the possibilities.
A collection of blood vessels (hemangiomas) can sometimes be identified on ultrasound.
Alternatives include fluid filled cysts such as liver cysts, parasitic infections (echinoccocus infections) etc.
Talk to your physician for appropriate evaluation. ...Read more
