Ct scan showed upper left adnexal region cystic mass 4.2x3.2x4.2cm with thickened enhancing rim, suggested follow up ultrasound. What does this mean?

In brief: Depends

If you are still having periods, it may just be a prominent functional follicular cyst.
In a post menopausal patient it may be more concerning. I’d see a gyn and get an endovaginal us to further characterize.

In brief: See below

Ct scans are not particularly good at assessing adnexal (ovarian) abnormalities while ultrasound is excellent.
They saw an abnormality in your ovary on the ct scan and want to better characterize it as suspicious for cancer or not.
