What does this all mean in English?

I am a 61 female just had a U/S Pelvis complete-Transvaginal non ob. Findings were the following: "The Uterus appears normal in size and heterogeneous in echotexture measuring 7.7x2.9x3.8CM. The endometrial stripe measures 0.3CM. The right adnexa is enlarged measuring 6.8x5.5x5.1CM. There is a large 5.3 CM complex hypoechoic structure. Left adnexa measures 3.8 x 2.1x2.5CM. There are 2 small cysts, the largest measures 1.6CM. There is no free fluid seen. The right adnexa now appears larger in size measuring 6.8CM. There is a new complex hypoechoic right adnexal structure measuring 5.3 CM which is of uncertain  etiology. " This does not sound good to me.  My gyno is doing another sonogram in his office and a pelvic on Monday. Before this, I never even had the flu.

Ovarian cysts in post menopausal women need to be watched.  

Please consider a 2nd opinion, prehaps with a GYN/Oncologist.  They have 3 years additional training and their practice is focused on gyn issues, many of these conditions are benign, vs childbirth, etc.   Remember, seeing a GYN/Oncologist doesn't mean it is cancer, they do treat many non-cancerous conditions.

Also, ask for a CA125 blood test....it cannot and does not detect ovarian cancer, but, if it is elevated, they might want to do additional tests, CT Scans or MRI's etc.

Good luck and keep us posted.
