Gynecology

Heterogeneous Right Adnexa

04/30/2010

Question:

Hello. I just had a CT Scan after finishing 3 rounds of Carbo/Taxol for stage II borderline serous micropapillary ovarian cancer. (I have had both ovaries & fallopian tubes removed) My physician called me with the results. He said everything looked good...except for a small fluid collection where my right ovary was. He didn`t seem concerned and said we`d repeat the CT in 6 months. After speaking with him...I had his office fax me over a copy of the report. It reads as follows.... Most findings say: No siginificant abnormality noted However-- KIDNEYS/URETERS: Subcentimeter simple cysts in the right kidney UTERUS/ADNEXA: Ill-defined soft tissue in the right adnexa which cannot be further characterized on CT. IMPRESSION: No definite metastatic disease. Heterogeneous right adnexa, which cannot be further characterized on CT.

Would you be cocerned about the kidney cysts? What about the "ill-defined soft tissue in the right adnexa"? I`m not really sure what this means... Do you think 6 months is too long to wait for any action?
