This is exactly what the radiology report said. Does anyone know if this is concerning? Or questions I should ask the GYN? My regular dr. Wouldn't tell me anything. Thank you!
1. Complex, 2.9 cm left ovarian cyst, likely a functional cyst. 2. 1.1 cm uterine fibroid.
There is a heterogeneously hypoechoic structure at the posterior aspect of the body of the uterus, measuring 1.1 x 0.8 x 0.9 cm, compatible with a fibroid. The uterus is otherwise normal and measures 11.0 x 5.5 x 4.4cm. The endometrial stripe is normal, measuring 11 mmin double wall thickness.
No free fluid in the cul-de-sac.
There is a complex, 2.9 cm left ovarian cyst, containing a few linear internal echoes, new since the prior study. The ovaries are otherwise normal. The right ovary measures 2.6 x 2.9 x 2.5 cm. The left ovary measures 4.3 x 4.0 x 2.8 cm. Normal
arterial and venous wave forms are demonstrated in each ovary.
A complex cyst just means that it's either filled with blood or another substance - https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322476.php
A functional cyst just means it's part of your monthly cycle. Most cysts are functional, and usually go away with your next couple of cycles.
The vast majority of cysts are benign, meaning not cancer.
I'm a little concerned that your doctor wouldn't tell you anything. Do you have an appointment to follow up and go over your results?
Thanks for your reply!
This was just my family dr. She called me with the ultrasound results and referred me to a gynecologist. She said I should ask him my questions. When I was in her office she didn't do any blood work. She did a pregnancy test that was negative and a vaginal exam that was normal. The cyst didn't hurt when she pressed on it & she didn't feel it but ordered the ultrasound since I was feeling something. So that's where I am. The gynecologist will be next.
Thanks again! Any advice is welcome:)
Chances are that this cyst will resolve on its own as most do. Keep us posted.
So the gynecologist said there is zero chance that this is cancer. I'm taking birth control and we are looking again in 2 months.
Does that sound reasonable? Should I get a second opinion?
