Fiber like strands?
Hi There,

Im posting not for myself but for my fiancee.  This Past summer she had a large (grapefruit sized) ovarian dermoid cyst removed, a surgery which went very well. As part of her follow up care she had an ultrasound done this past week; the operated side was normal, however the other side has developed a 2.5x3x4.5cm cyst (non-dermoid as we know) with lesions and multiple septations. This cyst was not present last year. Inside the cyst the ultrasound show fiber-like strands, which we have not yet had clear explanation as to what they are.  What could they/this be? We meet with our specialist in 3 weeks to have more thorough examinations done, he's excellent.  I can't seem to find much in the mean time, please help me so I can help her.

Sincerely,

A Curious and Concerned Fiance.

I may be wrong but ...
When I was diagnosed with my cyst they described it as a septated cyst. They also called the septated cyst a "cyst with fiber-like strands" aka a septated cyst. They described it to me as looking like a ball of bubble wrap. Alot of little septated/fiber like strands seperating the little chambers of material ( which can contain liquid or more solid matter).
Hope that helps some!
