Re: Need some help with ultrasound results
I am NOT a doctor, but cystic lesions are usually fluid filled and produce the "hypo" echogenic echo described in the report. Cancer is usually described as a "solid" lesion, and I would think the radiologist would have mentioned the possibility of a "neoplasm" (cancer) if he thought he saw something that might be suspicious for cancer.
The "complex" cystic lesions simply means the cysts have multiple chambers, like soap bubbles grouped together one on top of the other.
If you've got stones, they may offer/recommend removal of the gall bladder. This would be an outpatient "laparoscopic" procedure, and they could probably pop all those little cysts while they were there.
Best not to get too worked up about things until you have the further testing. This should rule out a solid tumor, and you might even be able to wait and see if things quiet down without surgery.
Best of luck to you!
