Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Just wanting a second opinion on this ultrasound. The radiologists have failed to mention some important findings, so I want to make sure nothing was missed. In the past, I had a massive cervical polyp removed, and it seems it was not mentioned on the ultrasonography report that was done just a few months ago. Now I am wondering if they are not commenting on everything they see. Do you see anything in this report? For instance, the 'round white circle' on the right of the photo?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Cervical polyps are generally not seen clearly on ultrasound, it requires saline infusion sonography for better visualization, which could be the reason why it would have been missed. This ultrasound (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity) shows some cystic lesions in the fundus of the uterine cavity which could be present if you have recently removed the polyp. It grossly looks normal. However, images from more views would be needed to comment accurately.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

From what I understand, you are referring to the little 'black circles' in the uterus, right? The polyp was in the cervix, so why would there be lesions associated to it in the fundus? Do you know what are the big white circles, on the right of the image? Those are what I am most concerned about.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Yes, the polyps arising from the uterus extend into the cervix. If you have not done any procedure to remove a cervical polyp there might be cystic areas in the fundus of uterus. Those white circles look like an artefact, it is nothing to worry about.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
