Patient : I am a 45 year old female. I had an MRI with and without contrast to rule out hydronephrosis. Good news is, the kidneys are fine. Bad news is they found what radiologist describes to be a multilocular predominant cyst on my ovary and he indicates he believes it is filled with fat. He did not add to report, but he told me it is a dermoid cyst. I've sent the test results to gyn. The gyn called and told me that I should get an ultrasound to so we have a baseline to monitor its size. The MRI indicates it is 3cm x 4.2 x 3cm. I've had dermoid cysts removed from ovary before 20 years ago, and was never given opportunity to monitor. Wondering why this would be different. Also, dr. assures me it is not ovarian cancer. Can this be concluded based on the radiologists report. Is there a chance that it can become malignant later?
