Pelvic and transvaginal u/s were done
3.5x2.7x2.8 cm right ovary
1.2x1.2x1.1 slightly irregular complex cyst
1.4x1x1 cm slightly irregular complex cyst
otherwise normal appearance on grayscale and color Doppler
3.2x1.5x1.5 cm left ovary
small cortical follicles, the largest measures 6x8 mm
normal appearance on grayscale and color Doppler.
Two irregular slightly complex cysts in the right ovary measuring 1.4 and 1.2 cm
Thank you for your quick and thorough response. Would it be prudent to have the ovaries removed completely just in case?
Also, why does my colon appear irregular and knobby on pelvic exam, and what could be causing this very strong, constant LLQ pain? During the transvaginal u/s I was in great discomfort as the technician moved the wand, especially on the back wall of my vaginal vault. I felt the pain was coming from that area directly.
Again, thank you.
At my age of 43 a paternal aunt who had ovarian cancer at age 37 and a cousin with breast cancer at 30, what are the realistic chances that these are going to be cancerous? If they are cancerous and they're removed, how do they determine if the cancer has spread to other areas of my body? Would I then have to undergo chemotherapy?
I'm a nurse and I can handle the truth. Thank you for your honesty. I really appreciate your help.
