Thanks for posting your query.
A cystic lesion in the pelvis - if it is a smooth walled well defined regular cyst with no XXXXXXX echoes- then it is likely to be a benign lesion. Such cysts can be related to ovaries, broad ligaments or other pelvic structures. Since the cyst you describe has a solid component, it can be related to a growth inside which can be malignant also.
A palpable solid lesion above the umbilicus can be intra abdominal or due to a swelling in the external abdominal wall like lipoma. A solid intra abdominal lump is worrisome.
You need further investigations like MRI and FNAC of the lump to know about its nature and extent.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
