Brief Answer:
Means there are more folds over the ovary, could be normal

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to Ask a Doctor service.

Ovaries are usually not very smooth on the surface, and when the follicles mature, this rough texture increases and can be sign of more than one follicle maturing at the same time, which is also very normal.

What would be significant if there were any masses attached or growing from the ovary.

If you could upload the scan report, I would be able to guide you better.

In isolation, this finding is not significant.

If you have any other issues, then we can consider further investigation if needed.

For now, it does not mean anything serious at all.

So relax and have a healthy life ahead.

Hope this answers your query.
