I think that whether a mass is cyst compared to a tumor, etc., depends on different properties that they show on the images. It gets pretty technical, from what I have read, and whether the "impression" of the radiologist is accurate or not depends on their level of skill and experience. I encourage anyone who has questions about their scan results to get a second opinion from Mass General Hospital. You don't have to go to Boston for this. see http://www.massgeneral.org/imaging/serv ... inion.aspx
(( addendum :
I have been taking and reviewing xrays, ultrasounds, CTs, PET scans and MRIs for my patients for the past 36 years ....
AS well as being a patient having all of those ...done on ME for the past 10+ years
EVERY imaging modality has its strengths and weaknesses
the RIGHT Docs will choose the best imaging and then proceed. IF there are inconsistencies or irregularities, they need to get more info.
IF they do NOT ..... get another Doc. ))
