After a short bout of gross hematuria, I had a renal scan. That all came back clear, but during the scan they noted a Follicular Cyst, that was larger than my ovary (ovary = 25mm x 15mm x 16mm - cyst = 25mm x 28mm x 16mm).
They scanned the left side first, then the right (where the cyst was found), but they did not go back and re-check the left.
My question (s) are..... Considering Follicular Cysts can stick around for a few months before dissipating, is there any way to tell if this is an old or a new cyst? Or more importantly, if I ovulated this cycle? Also, can you ovulate (from either ovary) while you have a follicullar cyst on one of your ovaries.
I've previoulsy had an ovarian ectopic pregnancy (treated with methotrexate) so ANYTHING abnormal with my ovaries gives me cause for concern.
I have booked in with my OBGYN (WEEKS away), but I thought I would see if you had any information in the interim.
Hope you can help.
