Ovarian cysts and iodine

Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts and iodine


Had abdominal CT scan in August (to check liver) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was told that I have fatty liver <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> (minor notation on report). Side pain has gotten worse and enzymes still elevated. Had second abdominal CT scan to get a better look at liver and pancreas. Was told everything looked okay (still have fatty liver) but the ovarian cysts have grown.
any suggestions? I saw someone posted about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> read about more magnesium in the diet. I am desperate at this stage....fearful of another surgery and I will not be there to be with her. Also feel horrible that she is having to deal with the pain daily at college. Thank you for any suggestions.
Sorry I don't have any answers, but I'm with you on the recurring cysts. The Gyno and I were convinced that the Mirena IUD was the cause for the recurrent cysts and it was removed during the last laparoscopy in November '11 when the cyst was drained. There was no endometriosis and no PCOS - all went fine for 3 months and the dull/stabbing pain is back since the beginning of the month.
I'm so sick of going back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> forward between doctors <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> specialists <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> getting different answers. Thanks, Kristy.
I'm really surprised 'they' haven't found some sort of cure or prevention yet for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>. I was rushed into hospital in July with really bad abdominable pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> vomitting....the hospital finally found that i had a twisted right ovary caused by a 7cm cyst. They managed to remove most of the cyst (remanants of cyst still there as per my check-up in Sep) and they managed to save the ovary thankfully. I haven't experienced any ovarian pain since that day it twisted up until now that is.
Breast, ovarian, and skin cysts — In addition to fixing almost all cases of breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> also has a remarkable healing effect on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> even on skin cysts. (For the latter, I recommend rubbing in iodine right over the cyst.)" ... "Dementia and glaucoma — iodine is found in large amounts in the brain (including the parts of the brain associated with Parkinson’s disease) and the ciliary body of the eye, a possible factor in glaucoma." Dr.
I already knew about the complex nodule in my thyroid (solid and cystic) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> in my breast. Now I've got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> on my cervix <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> left ovary. As a matter of fact, all the cysts are on the left side of my body. Wierd, huh? Just talked to the Gyn. He doesn't want to do anything about them, but wants to re-do the ultrasound in another 4-6 months. and no sign of fibroids. That's a relief! So it has me thinking....
Those with an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> deficiency may tend to develop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>. That is certainly true of me. Foods high in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> are those that come out of the sea - fish, shell fish and sea vegetables.
There is a link between thyroid disorders (including cancer) with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> deficiency <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> also with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> and iodine deficiency. Dr Brownstein, Dr Abraham, and Dr Flechas has treated patients with ovarian cysts, breast cysts and thyroid disorders successfully with iodine. Dr Brownstein has a book out re: iodine deficiency in the above disorders. It may be worth having a look and go back to you doctor to see if you are iodine deficient.
My surgery found a very large (size of my fist) hemorrhagic cyst encompassing my ovary <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> multiple simple <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> inside my ovary. I'm on HRT and Synthroid for the thyroid. My vote is if something is growing inside of you that you didn't invite - get it out. Luckily my ovary was non-cancerous but without the surgery I would have never known (and I was sure it was cancer).
That's the major reason that I decided NOT to have estrogen replacement therapy after I had my ovaries removed for PCOS (with very suspicious - but benign - hemorrhagic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>). I have to get pap smears done every 6 months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> be checked for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> (even though I have no ovaries) and breast cancer at least once a year because I have had cancer and because I have both ovarian and breast cancer in my family. Talk to your endo and your OB/GYN about your fears.
Keep in mind too that diverticulosis/itis can cause many of the symptoms you speak of and they are just the same as the ovarian/uterine symptoms. I've got both issues. Diverticulitis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> potentially endo or hyperplasia. They all can mimic each other. Diverticula "in people our age" are really not all that uncommon. Most people by the time they reach 45 or 50 years old have diverticula. Most people don't even know they have them and never have any problems.
Here is some interesting information that I found regarding my question of whether I should take iodine or not. I thought I would share it here. Anyone can Google to find more information. -McMillan November, 2004, Issue "Fatigue — An underactive thyroid typically causes fatigue. iodine supplementation can quickly activate the thyroid and relieve fatigue. Dr Abraham reports iodine deficiency may harm pituitary-adrenal function in rodents.
They did have trouble getting pregnant, but that's it. My cousin is 27 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> she used to have lots of problems with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>, but that's getting better now. She also just had a baby (she got pregnant using 3 forms of birth control, believe it or not).
I did a search and could not find an association between autoimmune disease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> cancer (there is some stuff in mice). There have been reports of autoimmune hemolytic anemia and mature teratomas. The anemia in these cases then resolves after the tumor is removed. The 1.4 cm mass in your left ovary is most likely another teratoma. Mature teratomas or dermoid cysts are the most common neoplasm of the ovary. Neoplasm means a growth or tumor.
Hi everyone, I had to respond, because I'm dealing with a lot of the same concerns as you ladies. I was diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian Syndrome when I was 13. I'm 27 now. I went to the hospital one morning about 2 weeks ago after getting constant abdominal pain that lasted over 11 hours. After getting an abdominal & pelvic ultrasound, I found out that I have two large cysts (one is 12x7 cm, and the other is 7x5 cm).
I have had complex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> on both ovaries. All parts that make me a women have been removed except for half of my right ovarie. That is all I have left now due to these cysts. It would be good to know if the two are linked in any way. You can only be scared of the word CANCER so many times before you realise it is a widley used word. Thanks heaps for your well wishes because every single one counts!
Everytime I've been to see my GP he's said that I'm most likely to be pregnant due to spotting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was told I should go home <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take a test, everytime coming back negative. This cycle has gone on for more than 4 years and in the end decided that going to see my GP was pointless. I've gradually become worse resulting in me constantly bleeding and etc.. I was finally encouraged to go back to my GP by my partner and was seen by another doctor.
TSH is very, very important for improving or upregulating the number of channels that absorb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> into various tissues including breasts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ovaries. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> getting iodine into these tissues helps to protect them from environmental toxins and has shown to reduce cysts and other risk factors for developing cancer. So, it IS important to monitor TSH and to keep it in the normal range. iodine will also improve TSH levels if they get too low. All the best, Dr.
(I stopped taking bc about two years ago) (i am not pregnant) I never considered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> or cancer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> now I am starting to freak out a bit. Last night I played some baseball and then got into a hot tub with friends for about an hour. I had to get out because the pain in my stomach and the bloat was too much to handle. when I got out I noticed some bleeding and felt horrible stomach pains. I couldn't even drive home. I know I need to go the doctor but do not have insurance right now.
I have been cancer free since but am concerned. Is there any correlation between thyroid cancer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> cancer? Does having one form of cancer indicate a predisposition to others? Any advice would be appreciated.
but for some reason none of the pharmacies around here dont carry it, she said that well have to do another blood test in six weeks, i have a bunch of other medicall stuff going on right now, mass in my breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> something called kidney sponge, so its gonna take a while to be fully on top of all of it right now, i guess ill just have to have patience and hope she knows what she doing, thanks for your advice.
End years of suffering with painful breast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> in as little as three months Many women develop “fibrocystic breast disease,” which is characterized by painful cysts in the breasts. In the 1970s, Dr. John Myers (one of the pioneering researchers in the use of trace elements) that iodine can minimize and possibly eliminate even the most severe cases of fibrocystic breast disease.
My daughter had Graves and took the Radioactive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> is now full blown Hypo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> she always saw an Endo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he didn't do any more than our family dr. I think you're right - I just need to actually talk to the doctor about it instead of the nurse and just sitting idly by while they mess around with my health. It's just so new to me and honestly, when they told me I had this, I thought it would just go away after a few months on medicine. No one told me anything.
Just recently I had to redo my pap, becuase it was abnormal, 2nd time abnormal again, I just had to redo it. I also have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fibroids on my uterus. What is up with that? I had a lump in my left breast removed at the age of 27. I always have breast pain, and have attributed it to my scar tissue from the surgery. I have asked in the ms forum regarding yeast infections and if people experience this more often.
I was in the clinic for about 2 1/2 yrs due to opiate addiction. I have ironic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ovarian</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cysts</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> suffer daily. I started by taking perks then it went to anything I could get. I almost did dope but was too scared. Anyway. I went into the clinic n started on 30mg. I felt better at about 50 mg and things were good. Then I started to gain the weight! I am 5'2" and weighed 125 when I started. By the first 2 months I gained 20lbs! I was encouraged to increase my dose by my counsiler.
The *good* thing about the two major types of thyroid cancer is they are easy to locate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> treat because they absorb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> so they just radiate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>iodine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> target the cancer cells - unlike chemo that kills off all of the healthy cells in your body too. Oh . . . and about your visit with the GYN. Many, many of us thyroid patients also have poly-cystic ovarian disease, fibrocystic breast disease, gallbladder problems, and Type II diabetes.
Hi I did IUI on Saturday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am now doing the dreadful 2WW <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am already feeling discouraged but not defeated. I have PMS signs and it sucks cuz IF and WHEN AF shows up I'm gonna feel like burying my self under my sheets and never waking up. Don't mean to seem negative but today I am feeling prety down. Anyhow good luck to both of us.
