Hi, I have had CT done about few weeks ago and they told me I have ovarian follicle and pelvic lymph nodes. I don't understand what does it mean exactly even though they explained it to me. I keep thinking having ovarian follicle is related to become pregnant is this true? Is it something bad? What does it mean by pelvic lymph nodes? Please let me know.

Thank You,

Thank you for explaining this to me. I had CT done because I've been having symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and they told me it's possible that somethhing is blocking me causing me to have abnormal bowel movements. The result of this CT says no blockage is found but I have ovarian follicle and pelvic lymph nodes. I'm going to my gynecologist next week for follow up and I'm really hoping they give me solution. Having ovarian follicle and pelvic lymph nodes are they something to be able to cure them? Please let me know.

Thank You,

Hi Melissa,

As I said in my previous post, ovarian follicles and pelvic lymph nodes are a normal part of a woman's anatomy. Therefore, there is nothing to cure.

Hello Melissa,

An ovarian follicle is a round cellular structure that is normally found in each ovary. Each ovarian follicle contains an egg. A woman is born with over a million ovarian follicles. Follicles produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone and release an egg, each month when you ovulate.

The lymphatic system is a network of organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels that produce and transport a fluid called lymph from tissues to the blood stream. Lymph contains white blood cells, particularly lymphocytes, which are cells that attack bacteria in the blood, and fluid from the intestines called chyle, which contains proteins and fats. The lymphatic system is a major part of the body's immune system.

Pelvic lymph nodes are part of the lymphatic system and are located in the pelvic region.

To answer your specific question, these are a normal part of a woman's anatomy.

Why did you have a CT scan of the pelvis? Were any abnormalities identified?
These are questions that should be directed to and answered by your gynecologist.
