Hi Doctor. Today I was told both my ovaries had follicular cysts and that there is a "dominant complex cyst on the left ovary with internal echoes in a nodular mural density. No fluid in the culd-de-sac. A second cyst in the left ovary." My GYn said we would have to take it out and do a frozen section. What does all of this mean in laypersons terms? Is is indictative of cancer? I am 41 and had the US becasue I have menorrhagia and pelvic pain. Thank you
it sounds like you have cysts of ovulation. One of those cysts is a bit irregular. It may be just a cyst that had some bleeding. But your doctor wants to be extra careful and remove it. Most cysts are benign.
It sounds like you are in good hands.
