Cannot see Chocolate cyst after a month in ultrasound

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.

But my all issues and pains have increased than before.

I am attaching my latest ultrasound film

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, have you had your next ultrasound? i had a 6cm cyst on my left, had my lap and it was partially removed along with discovering endo. its been 4months and i can definitely notice the difference. im pain free atm :) . there are chances of the cyst growing back but i feel better than i did before i guess.


Hi Zeezeeba, the fact that the chocolate cyst cannot be seen, could be that it went into torsi. If it is the case, they won't be able to see it, for eg. it 'moved' to the fallopian tubes. That won't be pick up by an ultrasound. I am not a doctor, but this has happened to me before. I have been struggling with Endo for the last 30 years. Maybe, go and see your Gynae or get a second opinion. Good luck!
