Ovarian Mass

Hi Dr

Can you explain the findings of my pelvic ultrasound I am unsure of the terminology.
Large Complex mass measuring 148x89x128mm within the Pouch of Douglas. Containing both solid and cystic components with Papillary Inclusions seen.  Is this cyst larger than normal would it be considered malignant potential.

I am sorry to say that the report doesn't sound good!  If I saw this report, I would be extremely concerned about the possibility of a cancer in the ovary.  What they are seeing is a grapefruit sized "baloon" filled with fluid and also containing solid tissue that looks kind of like broccoli (best way I can describe it).

If you were my patient, I would send you to a Gynecologic Oncologist tomorrow.  Make sure you get a specialist in gynecologic cancers, as if it is cancer, having a surgery done by a specialist (as opposed to a general gynecologist) will improve the prognosis.
They are the most skilled surgeons, and there is no downside to having your surgery done by a specialist even if it isn't cancer.  I certainly hope it isn't!

Good luck!
Don't wait!
