If you think your cyst is a little more complicated, complex ovarian cyst pictures can help you understand it. There are a lot of different types of complex ovarian cysts. Let’s look at pictures of a few of them.
I prefer ultrasounds in general, as that is what the doctor is more likely to show you.
This type of cyst is called a multiloculated ovarian cyst. It looks like a lot of bubbles close together. When a cyst looks like this, it is more likely to be cancerous. One extra detail doctors look for is the presence of papillary extensions – these look like fingers coming out. When these are present, the cyst has a higher likelihood of being cancerous.
These two photos show a before and after ultrasound of a complex cyst. You can see in the first one that the cyst was filled with fluid. When a cyst is partially filled with fluid, has a wall, or partially solid, it’s defined as complex. In this case, you can see that it resolved on its own without medical intervention.
