Anechoic Cyst?

Does anyone know what a anechoic cyst with a single thin septation mean?

Anechoic means no echo or does not pick up the u/s waves.  Usually means its fluid filled.  Thin septation is is a thin wall seperating the area in question.  Thin is better than a thick wall and fluid is most definately better than solid.

Hello to all, My doc really doesn't communicate with me very well, good old HMO DOCS. lol  I literally (SP?) have to go to his office and corner him.  This is what my Ultra sound stated.

The anteverted uterus measures 9.0 cm in length with a maximal AP diameter of 4.4 cm and a transverse diamater of 5.3 cm.  The endometrial echos measure 6mm in thickness.  There is a small isoechoic 9 X 10 mm probable fibroid in the myometrium of the anterior body.  The right ovary measures 1.9 X 2.9 cm the left 3.9 x 4.7 cm containing an anechoic 3.3 x 4.1 cm cyst with posterior acoustic enhancement.  There is no evidence of fluid in the cul-de-sac.

Can anyone explaine to me if this is a normal cyst or a complex cyst??? The doctor is no help and I have put in for a 2 nd opinion with the insurance company but they say it can take months.  I am in pain almost all the time..  Thanks for any help with this matter.

Thanks,
Char

Hi Greeneyes! Sounds to me like you have a fibroid in your uterus and a cyst in your left ovary, but the cyst would be complex if it was echoic not anechoic....echoes are material that the u/s waves bounce off of...apparently there aren't any in that one. Take care,

Did you ever find out what a anechoic cyst in the pancreas was?  I have one that measures 1.7 mm by 1.5 mm at the head of the pancreas.  And if so what did you have done or is it still there?  

Please respond asap....I am worried.  Thank-you!
