sorry it took so long to get to ur post
bilateral polycystic ovarian disease with a maturing folicle in the left ovary means ...
bilateral = both sides
poly = many
cystic = cysts (just a word and nothing bad is meant by it woman produce one to two cysts once a month to release ova for fertilization)
ovarian = pertaining to the ovaries
disease = something that should not be happening
maturing follicle in the left ovary is exactly what happens near ovulation
PCOS = most times women produce one functional cyst per month ... polycystic ovaries produce too many and at times can cause pain and other symptoms including (commonly) infertility .. on a scan they resemble a bunch of grapes
a lot of women who are undergoing fertility treatments also become polycystic (hence the high prevalance of multiple births)
there are tons and tons of articles about it
