Ovarian cyst. Coloured axial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan through the abdomen of a twenty- seven year old woman with an ovarian cyst (pink). The front of the body is at the top of the image. The brown mass in the centre is the colon, which leads down to the rectum (lower centre). The hip bones can be seen on either side of the image (dark brown, outlined in yellow). Cysts, fluid filled sacs, are quite common in women of child- bearing age, they are rarely malignant (cancerous), and usually shrink and disappear over time.
