i have been experiencing abdominal pain and have a history of cysts on my ovaries, but during my recent ultrasound they found a cyst on my left ovary but could not see my right ovary? they tried for 10 minutes and then did a colour doppler which just showed a red mass and i was told to make an appointment (asap) with my doctor. what does it mean? should i be worried or am i being daft? please help.
The ovary may not be seen if it is placed posterior and behind other structures. Hence do not be worried and stress yourself. An examination with a gynaecologist and MRI or CT scan will make the picture clear.
Hope this helps.
