no free fluid isnt always bad...it could be leaking from a cyst or a number of other things other then just fluid from a tumour. Both times when i was diagnosed with "complex cysts" there some free fluid around them, and both times 6 weeks later the cyst and the fluid was gone.
When I had an ultrasound my left ovary was bigger than the right ovary. My left ovary contained a solid vascular corpus luteum with bi-polar dimensions, and there was some free fluid around the left ovary assosiated with the corpus luteum. I had a C.T later on and I had a cyst on my left ovary 2.8x3cm the doctor said it was most likely representing a functional cyst.
I'm not sure myself what free fluid around the ovaries means.
I also have endometriosis, which gives me a lot of cramping problems.
I've had free fluid since my first u/s in January....It doesn't always just go away....but it doesn't always mean something bad either. There's no way to know for sure unless it is biopsied.
