I just had an MRI of the sacrum and coccyx and there was a white shadow behind the uterus I believe and or near the bowel area. Does this indicate a cyst or tumor?

Brief Answer:
Most likely a cyst

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

If it is possible to upload an image of the MRI showing the white area, it would be helpful for me to give a good opinion.

The most likely cause could be a cyst.

Thank you I am unable to upload the disc version or the copy that I sent unless I am able to email it to your direct email address. That is not part of this program. If you care to send me a personal or work email address I can do that for the picture. Thank you for such quick response. XXXXXXX

Brief Answer:
Seems normal

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting the images on the email.

The white area seems to be normal finding; fluid in relation to the bowel loops. It does not appear to be a cyst or tumor.

I could not see the disc view though.

Best wishes,
