hypoechoic cyst

A couple of weeks ago, I went to the md with abd pain and lower back pain. I had an U/S done and it showed the following.
1. Complex, echogenic and hypoechoic lesion involving the right ovary, most likely a complex or hemorrhagic cyst.With in the right ovary is a mixed echogenic focus measuring 2.7 x 2.0 x 2.1cm containg a smaller hypoechoic foucs within measuring 2.0 x1.1 x 1.5cm.

They also found fluid in my uterus called "Venous lakes"
I had a D and C a few monthes that showed chronic inflammation.

My CA-125 showed a 17. They want to follow up with another U/S in 6 weeks. Should I wait or should I be more aggressive about this??

A hypoechoic cyst is a descriptive term, meaning that it gives off fewer echos on ultrasound than the surrounding tissue.  

A followup ultrasound is a reasonable course of action - if there was concern about ovarian cancer, then it would have been suspected in the radiologist's impression.  

Discussion on management of the complex or hemorrhagic cyst should be done with your gynecologist.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
