Ovarian Cancer Septated ovarian cyst with calcification
jocma posted:
I been suffering from back pain where I cannot walk. Old MVA injury. I went to the ER. They performed a Ct scan that showed multiple cysts on my ovaries bilaterally. There is one that has me rather concerned. Left adnexal mass-Septated low density cystic lesion with evidense of soft tissue at the peripheral. Calcification with in the lesion. Lesion measures 5.2 x 3cm. with low density cystic lesions with soft tissue seen in the border of the lesion measuring 4.5 x 3.4cm. A sono and a doppler confirmed this. no fluid in pelvis doppler flow is noted in left side adnexal region. The hospital told me to see my gyn ASAP and get an MRI. I understand that this may be a malignancy, the Drs there said its ovarian cancer.I Know that the Only way to tell is through surgery although a pet scan is a good diagnostic tool. I been diagnosed with Poly cystic ovaries since age 16, I am 47 now. Had a hysterectomy about 10 yrs ago Dg stage 1 cancer. Clean bill of health all these yrs. I am wondering if anyone else had a septated cyst with calcifications and what was the outcome. I am opting for removal of both ovaries not to go thru this again. I am going for an mri, blood work and have surgery date in the works. Thanks
