I was just wondering if anyone knows what the thresholds are for cysts/fibroids (within the NHS) to be classed as abnormal?
I've just had pelvic ultrasounds, after breakthrough bleeding, abdominal(llq)/referred pain, and a myriad of other relatively mild but certainly frustrating symptoms.
The report has just come back and it says "Normal" with no follow up needed, but they did identify a uterine fibroid and a follicular ovarian cyst on the left (the side where I've been experiencing pain). Neither are massive (under 3cm) but they're still there, you know?
My mother had a hysterectomy due to issues caused by fibroids, as well as tumors removed from her bladder, followed by chemo, so I'm wanting to make sure I can continue to follow this up if my pain persists or worsens.
I already suffer from chronic abdominal pain (ruq) due to complications from a severe illness a few years ago, so I'll accept my body's response to pain in this region might be out of whack, but that doesn't make much difference if I'm still experiencing the pain regardless of if it's a normal response or not?
Just wondering how I might be best to approach my GP about this matter.
