I had severe pain in my left ovary area and after getting a CT scan it stated that I had a small cyst in the adnexal region with high attenuation wall. May be partially hemorrhagic. Not sure what that means, does anyone have any insight? I was in the ER and the doctor pretty much treated me like a number and sent me home without explaining this in detail.
I am not sure what "high attenuation wall" means but you can go to the Expert Forum - look on sidebar on the right - and ask a doctor there..........when my tumor was first found by ultrasound the radiologist said it might be a complex hemorrhagic cyst as well , which is one that bleeds into itself or something like that - which gives it a kind of solid appearance. (this was ultrasound though - not CT like yours- so it was harder to tell.......) These kinds of cysts can go away by themselves I understand - they usually watch them for awhile and if they are large and don't start to shrink, then will remove them. (at least - this is what they were going to do with me.........)
I of course am not an expert and don't know a lot about them - I would imagine that you will have a follow-up appointment sometime soon?
