Doppler signal and color flow noted in both ovaries
I am 41 years old and have been recently diagnosed with a complex cystic mass with the right ovary 3.6 cm and a solid lesion mass assoicated withthe left ovary measuring 1.8 cm. What does the presence of a Doppler signal and Color Flow indicate in the types of mass that I have? Does the presence increase the probability of malignancy? I will have a repeat ultrasound this week.
moist cysts are benign.
Doppler flow has to do with blood supply. The cyst has some blood flow within it. That does not mean it is malignant. A repeat ultrasound in 2 to 3 months is appropriate
