Caption

Ovarian cyst. X-ray of a section through the pelvic region of a 29-year-old woman (front of the body at top), showing a large (6.5cm) cyst (dense, upper centre) attached to her left ovary. 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. The size and multi-compartment structure of this cyst suggests it is in fact a cystadenoma, a benign (non-cancerous) tumour arising from a cyst. Cystadenoma's have the potential to become malignant (cancerous).
