Hi and thanks for the query,
The commonest cause of bilateral ovary enlargement, which must absolutely be excluded is generally a mole, or molar pregnancies.
Measuring levels of B HCG are very important in this case to rule this out. Also, large enlarged ovaries could be due to, as indicated in the report due to polycystic ovarian syndrome. This syndrome, left untreated could have or aggravate symptoms of thyroid disease and at times is a risk factor for diabetes.
I suggest you visit your treating gynecologist for a more comprehensive evaluation and follow up.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
