I learned at a transvaginal ultrasound I didnt have fibroids but ovarian cysts. One was a Hemorrhagic cyst. I was told to wait and see in a few months but learned report said not to rule out the possibility of neoplasm. Should i insist on ca125 right now? Or other further tests?
I heard there was a correlation between breast and ovarian cancer. Also, I had a partial hystorectomy 2 years ago because of fast growing/replicating pre-cancerous cells in my cervix. The final peice of the puzzle is that I have HPV. I know you can not give me a difinitive answer and I will be seeing a doctor in person soon...but I would love your insight about the probability of cancer vs a benign cyst. Thank you.
Good afternoon. I just stumbled across this site after googling ‘ovarian cysts‘. I wondered if anyone out there has ever been in my (worrying) situation. I am 27 years old, a mummy to a beautiful 2 year old and 12 weeks pregnant with my second baby. I had an emergency scan around 6 weeks into this pregnancy due to pain on my right side. My GP feared an ectopic pregnancy. To my relief baby was fine. However, an 8cm side was found on my right ovary with a daughter cyst inside.
If your daughter is sexual active however she needs to use more protection then the pill as I've fallen pregnant recently whilst using the pill and my baby miscarried at 12wks as a cyst was growing on my womb. The pill becomes more a pain killer to stop cysts growing then a contraceptive so make sure she uses condoms or sperisides as well. If it does get worse for her she may need a laproscapy to make sure it isn't the worse form which is endromeitriousis.
I am 50 years old and have been diagnosed with multiple ovarian cysts on both ovaries that were left after a hysterectomy 3 years ago because of excess fibroids. I have had a cat scan in Oct. 06 and then a vus every 3 months after and they have multiplied and have daughter cysts attached to them. You can't even see my ovaries because of so many cysts. My doctor said some have septations in them and are now complex. He wants to remove my ovaries next month.
advice please for an 18 year-old with ovarian cysts and distressing acne 1. are the two problems related? 2. I took three month Metformine 50mgs/day for the cysts but yesterday's ultra showed right ovary 3.6 X 2.5 cms. Left, 3.2 x 2.1 both with multiple small cysts average 5mm in diameter. i.e. smaller cysts but more in number than the last test. Is it a fact that I won't get rid of the acne until the cysts are gone? 3.
Left Oophorectomy (this was done in 2006 for problems with very heavy bleeding and cysts on my left ovary) Right ovary measures 5 by 8.8cm (Isn't that big?) and has several cysts or dominant follicles. It also has a 3.7 by 5 cm smoothly marginated hypoechoic area which may represent hemorrhagic cyst. Ther are other similar but smaller areas in the right ovary, one measuring 2.2 by 3.4 cm. (Are those consider big?) Ther is no free fluid. (What does that mean?
.Hi I'm 32 and was diganosed with ovarian cysts years ago, my problem is I've been really sick for @ 2 yrs and recently went to ER because I was so sick I couldn't move, that's where they found a 5-6 cm cysts growing. I switched Dr. last year because it just seemed that she wanted to put me on pills that didn't produce periods. I havn't had a period in 2 yrs and my symptoms are horrible.
Hi There, one simple way to know if cysts are functional - that is- related to the ovarian - menstrual cycle is to wait a cycle or two and rescan. Cysts that are related to ovulation will be gone and be replaced by new cysts with the new cycle. A persistent or growing cyst may be a tumor benign or malignant. Ca 125 is not a screen for cancer. The result just tells us that this cyst or tumor does not produce the CA 125 protein. I am assuming that tha 4.5 cm, 2.8 cm, 3.3 cm and 4.
Hi guys, I'm new to this website after reading all your supportive posts about having painful ovarian cysts. I'm 17 and I have been having problems with ovarian cysts since I was 16. Last January, I was 16, and I started feeling severe pelvic pain that wrapped around my back. The pain was so severe I laid on the bathroom floor and cried and cried. My mom then took me to my primary doctor who told me it was only a stomach bug and gave me medicine for the vomitting, and 'stomach bug.
I have had ovarian cysts for a few years now. My last ultra sound was tagged "atypical" cyst with mulitiple daughter cysts and needs followup in six weeks. My uterus also increased in size and diameter from the last ultrasound 4 months ago when I had my last ultrasound for another cyst. Should I be concerned.
Also, neoplasm is just a fancy word for new cell growth. 99% of ovarian cysts, masses, or tumors are BENIGN. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
i am so scared we wont be able to concieve if i do have ovarian cysts. i go to the gyn in 1 week. my last pap was clear so i thought it was in my head, but im growing increasingly concerned...
Dear Luther, I agree with Angie's sage advice. Most cysts are benign. However, a cyst that is growing should be removed. A CT scan can help triage waiting for surgery versus surgery right away. That is, if the CT scan is perfect - no fluid, no thickening in the bowel walls or the lining of the abdomen, no enlarged lymph nodes - then waiting a few more months is fine. What was your CA 125 result?
Hi Nancy, Did an OB/GYN give you these results (not the ultra sound tech or nurse)? They should have given you some sort instructions in terms of follow-up. I would be worried too if they just gave me information and didn't explain it to me. Assuming you are dealing with an OB/GYN could you call them and ask the questions you have? I know it's scary sometimes, but you deserve to have all of your questions answered. In the mean time: Mayoclinic.
I have so much fluid in my abdomen from bursting cysts that it has grown 2 inches in 2 days..................it has been growing slowly for 3 months........and now faster growing............I am headed to endocrinilogist next week but just wondered if I am in any danger?
Hi There it is unusual to have ovarian cancer at your age. There is a slow growing tumor called a borderline ovarian tumor which is more common at your age. The next step is surgery .
