Question: I am 47 yr old female, 115 lbs, good health, non smoker/drinker, etc. No medical issue. No immediate family cancer history. Asked for a transvaginal ultrasound as I've never had one and report reads as follows: Liver - Mildly heterogenous echotexture. Echogenic lesion segment 6 measuring 0.6 x 0.6 x 0.5 cm. Gallbladder - o stones. Polyp 4 mm, unchanged Uterus: 8.4 x 5.5 x 3.6 cm. Heterogeogeneous echotexture. Cyst seen anterior body 0.9 x 1.0 x 1.0 cm. Thickness: 6 mm. Right Ovary: Size 2.0 x 1.4x 2.1 cm Left Ovary: Size 2.8 x 1.3 x 2.0 cm Free Intra-peritoneal Fluid: Yes, small Other findings: Fluid seen within cervix A few nabothian cysts seen with internal echoes, largest 0.9 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm It scared me after doing some research as I'm quite medically savy, so I followed up a month later with a CT scan without I.V. contrast. Report findings: Gallbladder polyp, heterogeneous liver lesion, NYD, complex hupoechoic lesion unterine fundus. Liver, biliary tree and gallbladder sho no significant abnormalities. Tiny calcification related to the posterior spleen, perhaps related to previous granulomatous diesease. Pancreas, adrenal glands and kidneys are unremarkable. No lymphadenopathy. Pelvic structure show no abnormalities. Specifically, the uterine fundus is unremarkable. Follow up suggested. Pancreas - Normal Spleen 7.7 cm, normal - Left Kidney 10.9 cm. Normal Right Kidney 10.3 cm Normal Aorta - Normal IVC - NormalAsked by Me , 42 minutes ago

Brief Answer: Both your reportsa are normal. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. I have analyzed your scan and Ct findings. Your ultrasound scan report suggests features of PID (pelvic inflammatory disease). Otherwise your uterus and ovary are normal, nabothian cyst with internal echoes is also a normal finding. About the gall bladder polyp could be a incidental finding. Coming back to your CT report, everything seems normal. The hypoechois lesion in uterus could be benign fibroid degeneration finding. Again could be a unremarkable finding. I personally feel both your ultrasound and Ct scan findings are absolutely normal. What I suggest you is get a repeat scan after 6 months to see any changes. You don't need any treatment unless you have any complaints like abnormal vaginal discharge or menstrual disturbances. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
