help with ultrasound report

Can someone interpret this for me? Doc discovered dermoid while doing ivf. I am about 5 months post partem and this was the summary"

Right dermoid with abnormal blood flow suggesting possible neoplastic changes."

Also noted was that "color doppler of the dermoid cyst demonstrated an increase in blow flow and low resistive index

Some free fluid in the cul de sac

Cyst size was 2.8 x 3.7 x 2.6 (which is small i think?)

Thank you!

Hi There
neoplastic just means growth
it does not mean cancer per se

the report suggests you have a small tumor on the ovary that has a robust blood supply.

It is small and usually we just recommend watching it unless you are having pain.
If it grows , that is a reason to surgically remove.

I would suggest a repeat scan in 2-3 months. If it is bigger, ask your doctor about surgically removing it
best wishes
