Based on these steps we can determine further management: ignore, follow-up with US, further evaluation with MRI or excision. Role of Ultrasound For characterization of ovarian masses, ultrasound is often the first-line method of choice, especially for distinguishing cystic from complex cystic-solid and solid lesions. Even with MRI it is often not possible to make an accurate diagnosis of neoplastic subtype. By using MRI as an adjunct to sonography a delay in the treatment of potentially malignant ovarian lesions is prevented. This is not only beneficial to the small number of women who do have ovarian cancer, but also a proven cost-effective approach to the management of sonographically indeterminate adnexal lesions.
Breast cysts are common in women. In breast cyst aspiration, your doctor uses a small needle to withdraw aspirate fluid from a cyst. A breast lump that you can feel might hurt. Or it might make you worry about cancer. Breast cyst aspiration can help your doctor find out if the lump you feel is a cyst or a tumor.
Section 1: Epidemiology and aetiology The breasts are composed of several cell and tissue types, which can be broadly classified as either epithelial or stromal. These components are dynamic and hormone responsive. Symptoms and signs relating to the breast can be considered to be either physiological or pathological. However, distinguishing between these can be challenging in general practice. In addition, breast conditions are frequently associated with significant anxiety.
A simple breast cyst , on the other hand, only contains clear fluid. Indeed, this is usually something harmless like an old blood clot or debris. These cysts are on the upper end of the continuum of abnormalities that can sometimes happen to breast cysts. Simple breast cysts are fluid filled, and with a uniformly thin and smooth wall to their oval shape.
