Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me out I recently went to the ER for abdominal pain and catscan showed a 6cm cyst so they sent me 3 hours later to get an ultrasound and a transvaginal ultrasound, I also went Sept. 2010 and there was a 3 cm cyst on the same ovary but they said it would go away on its own and it still there but now is 6 cm. anyways here is the results I have a doctor appointment in a few days but i am freaking out! I'm only 22 and I dont want to have to worry about cancer but thats what everyone thinks when they hear COMPLEX CYST!
Right ovary measures 6.0x4.9x5.8cm, volume 89.2mL. this includes a heterogeneous structure with no obvious internal blood flow measuring 5.7cm in greatest, corresponding to be lesion noted on CT and probably represents a hemorrhagic or other complex cyst or a cystic neoplasm.
No other adnexal abnormality is noted. Small amount of free fluid in the pelvic cul-de-sac.
can someone PLEASE put this in english? im so nervous and cant wait till my appointment because i seem to be spending hours "googling" all of this with no answers. thank you so much!
complex cyst does not mean cancer! however, because these do not resolve on their own, it will probably be the best to have it removed. this can be done so that ovary is preserved and with minimally intrusive surgery. i had experience similar to yours (ended up in ER, discovered i had as big complex cyst...) and i had it removed.
