Ovarian Cyst


I am new here and I will try and keep this brief.

I was sent for an MRI of my left hip for a hip problem I have been having.
MRI showed 4.4 cm complex left ovarian syst with septations. Ok. So I went to my gynecologist for a follow up. He sent me for an ultrasound. Both abdominal and trans vag. MRI and ultrasound were a week apart. Results: There is a posterior 13 mm small intrmural fibroid. The right ovary measures 1.6 cm maximally. Left ovary measures 2.6 cm with small follicles but no evidence of significant cystic mass. Yay. I was happy it had gone away on its own.

Today I keep getting a sharp left side pain in the pelvic area. The pain sometimes stops me in my tracks.

Finally here is my question. Is it possible for a cyst not to show up on ultrasound? Has any one ever heard of this happening?

Thank you to any one who can help. I'm not sure what to do.

Re: Ovarian Cyst

Have you called your doctor to see what he/she recommends? I think I would start with that.

I don't know if a cyst is sometimes "hidden," but I do know that sometimes they cannot see the ovary due to cysts. I suppose it could be possible.

Good luck.
