Ultrasound results - good news/possible bad news

Hi girls,

I just got back from my ultrasound appointment this morning. I've got good news and news of as-yet-unknown signficance.

The cyst on my right ovary has greatly reduced in size, I do have a large cyst on left ovary, but they're both simple cysts and nothing to worry about, though they both could be causing my pain.

They also found a 12 mm (about a half an inch) tumor on the internal section of my vaginal cuff in the same location as the dysplasia on the external side. My regular gyn who I saw today after the ultrasound thinks it's just a fibroid and has nothing to do with the dysplasia (though he said that's a weird place for a fibroid.) I'm not so sure. Kind of coincidental that it's in the same spot as the severe dysplasia, don't you think?

I'm going to make a follow-up appointment with the gyn/oncologist to discuss this. I love my hunky gyn, but I'd feel better talking to someone who knows more about what might be going on.

Gee, something else to worry about!

Thanks and s,

By the way, I have no clue as to why those words are underlined in my original post above. I didn't do it!

I'm glad that you're checking this with a gyn/onc. They're the experts and that second opinion is always worthwhile. Now if those simple ovarian cysts would both reduce in size you'd be in great shape. Hopefully the gyn/onc will figure out what's going on with the vaginal cuff area.

Good news and .....other news. I guess nothing is clear cut. I am glad to hear that your cysts are simple, and one has reduced in size. You are doing the right thing by being proactive and seeking the opinion of the gyn/onc. Please keep us posted about his comments. In the meantime, I'll keep the prayers going for you! Hugs!

I agree with the others, see the gyn/oncologist. My gyn, and an expert gyn sonographer, both thought I had a cervical fibroid. I didn't. It was cervical cancer, despite negative pap smears. The gyn/oncologist knew immediately that it was not a fibroid. I am NOT trying to scare you, just urging you to continue to make sure you have ALL the right answers.

That's GREAT news regarding the cysts.
I concur 100% to get another opinion from a GYNO/ONC.
Unfortuantely, what Janie posted (Denton56), occurs far too often under the eyes of a regular gyno.

Thanks, ladies. I think if they had found the tumor without the dysplasia, I wouldn't have been worried, but since the three areas of moderate and severe dysplasia are located just on the other side of that same area, it worries me that perhaps the dysplasia has turned into invasive cancer or something. So, I know I'll feel a lot better if I get it checked out by the oncologist, just to be on the safe side.

Lord, as if I haven't had enough to worry about! Now this!

Jane, I knew something was wrong when the ultrasound tech, who had been chatting away with me like an old friend about medical transcription (which I teach) suddenly got very quiet (I hate it when they do that!) She asked me if I'd ever had fibroids, and I told her yes, then I mentioned that I also had severe dysplasia and she got all worried looking and didn't say much after that! That scared me a bit!

Dr. Hunk wants to wait six weeks and do another ultrasound to see what's up with the tumor. But I don't think that's a good idea. (They're going to "wait and see" me into an early grave, if I'm not careful!) Hopefully, it's nothing but a fibroid, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

I agree! Follow up with the Gyn/onco and put your mind at rest

Great news on the simple cysts!

Hunky GYN!

I love that phrase of yours: "...wait-and-see me into an early grave..."

I'm hoping it's a diagnosis of benign everything.
