Hi there, I did transabdominal and transvaginal scanning , and I am diagnosed with 81mm complex lesion at right ovary and also internal echogenicity is noted which is said to be largely homogeneous however there is a hypoechoic papillary component and contained cystic change,possible causes would include an endometrioma. can you tell me what is all this about and what should be the next possible step and is this condition will effect my fertility?

Hello,An endometrioma indicates that you are probably suffering from a condition known as endoemtriosis. This is a condition in which there is growth of the endometrium (inner uterine lining) in places outside the uterus. The ovary is a very common place for this type of growth.Endometriosis is very often seen together with fertility problems, probably because of irregular ovulation as well as hormonal imbalance. Some amount of scarring can also take place which can block the tubes leading to infertility.But many women with endometriosis do get pregnant and go on to have a healthy pregnancy with no problem. So, endometriosis alone is not the cause of infertility.The next step will be to go in for a laparosocpy to evaluate the mass, and burn away the endometriotic tissues.
