Cannot see chocolate cyst in ultrasound after a month

Cannot see chocolate cyst in ultrasound after a month

Hi, i am 20 nd half yr old and last month was diagnosed with PCOD in my right ovary and 4 cm plus CHOCOLATE CYST in my left ovary during my periods from ultrasound after dealing with all symptoms associated from last 2 yrs. (eg- Hirsutism and lot more)

Now after a month I went for second opinion during my periods and Radiology Doctor could not find my chocolate cyst During my ultrasound. My both ovaries are swollen and bulky in size and they failed to perform 3d ultrasound and are suspecting PCOD. They have called me for 3d ultrasound after 10 days.

i am attaching my latest ultrasound film.

But my all issues and pains have increased than before.

Can this happen?

I am really confused that what should i believe and what does this means and not able to figure out what should i do.

I am dealing with this on my own with no support from anyone, so please Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Surbhinonni,

You are not alone. Poly-cystic ovary syndrome actually has a forum on HealthUnlocked (

Your doctor told you that you had a 'Chocolate Cyst', perhaps it would be a good idea to ask them to explain this to you, and why it has now disappeared. The 'chocolate' in a cyst describes old blood that can sometimes be absorbed by the body, if a cyst is tiny, which may be why it cannot be seen on the ultrasound.

If you're really concerned and would prefer to talk this through with a specialist gynaecological nurse who deals mainly with cancer, but would be happy to talk to you please call Ask Eve (our specialist information service) on 0808 802 0019 - which is free to call from landlines and mobile phones within the UK - or get in touch via email

Thank you,
