cyn, thanks for the reply! I got my report from my recent ultrasound today and it sayd the one cyst is resolving but now has the two new cysts there are more cysts that are both containing echogenic fluid, do you know what this mean? My Dr. wants to see me the week right after i see the GYN because she is also concerned, does any of this mean anything?
Love, Monkey
Hello Monkey,

Glad to hear that one of the cysts appears to be resolving. As to your question regarding the term echogenic fluid for the other cysts, I looked it up in a medical dictionary and it means,"giving rise to reflections (echoes) of ultrasound waves". This can be compared to the term echolucent which means,"permitting the passage of ultrasonic waves without giving rise to echoes, representative areas appearing black on the sonogram". I remember my gynecologist telling me that it is difficult to know what kind of fluid is contained in a cyst, even in a simple cyst .. it could be mucus like, for example .. or I am thinking that perhaps if the cyst has blood in it (what they call a chocolate cyst) it may give off echoes. I am most definitely not a radiologist though so it might be a good idea to contact your general practioner again to see if she can take a minute to explain the ultrasound report and what she thinks it means. You may also want to contact your gynecologist's office to see if they can fit you in earlier than the 30th. Sometimes they have cancellations. Tell them that you are experiencing a lot of pain and multiple ovarian cysts. This will perhaps save you a week's worth of worry.

I hope you get your answers soon and in the meantime, take good care of yourself and try to relax as much as possible.
