  • can an ultrasound be false ??? i need cyst help info

    hi i just came back from the hospital its 3:15 am in florida.
    i got my ultrasound done... took 30 minuts..
    i had to wait 15 minuts for my resault and truns out the hard marble sized lump i had on top of my testicle was a cyst..

    im still kinda worried that ultrasound could be wrong.... is it possible for them to screw up... thats all they told me is that it was a cyst.. and i could go home wrote me out a perscription....

    i was also wondering if cyst are dangerouse or if they can lead to something else???

    im so happy it wasnt tc i was worreid and freaked out for 3 days straight..

    i thank god that its not tc..

    so if theres any info on cyst let me know..

    one more thing if its a cyst arnt doctors supposed to do something ?? isnt it bad if you have it.... also the cyst i have on my right testicle can have some sharp pains... the pains go also to my leg... is this normal for a cyst...

    even though th doctor said it is ok... im still worried nowing some hospitals make mistakes...

        An ultrasound is generally reliable. Have you talked about the results with your doctor yet?

            Hey,

            Two weeks ago I went in to have a rather large cyst removed.

            I origninally received a diagnosis of TC, but the urologist did another ultrasound and was convinced it wasnot TC. After a second opinion confirming the diagnosis I had the cyst removed.

            Cysts are not usually painful, but if they get big enough or are pushing against the right "thing" they can be. Mine did shoot pain into my leg and lower abdomen. After the surgery all of my additional pain (those associated with the cysts) dissapeared.

            From what my doctor told me it is usually safe to ignore them (AFTER GETTING THEM CHECKED OUT OFCOURSE!!). If they become painful or enlarged then you could consider either aspiration where they stick a needle in and drain the fluid, or you can have them removed. She futher explained that aspiration is just a temporary fix and the cysts usually return to their full size within a couple of weeks. Usually a diagnosis of a cyst will be accompanied by a prescription of antibotics in hopes of curing an infection that caused it. Antibiotics had no affect on my cyst so we decided on surgery. The two biggest risks with the surgery is infection and infertility. But yes they can be painful, and cause associative pain.

            Cysts are usually pretty easy to determine with an ultrasound. They show up as black objects, whereas the pics of cancer I've seen are quite different.

            Hopes this help,
            Tim

                You would have to call all the providers and ask what their charges will be, they will be able to tell you give or take a few dollars. It is different all over the country your area might be low, mine might be high.
