You shouldn't have an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> live in pain till you're 51 and at the "average age" of menopause. That's baloney. Usually they say you're menopausal if you haven't had a period fan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> 12 months. But there is a chance you have a thyroid an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>monal imbalance going on.

Fibroids are supposed an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> lessen after menopause but you may an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> be at that advantage point yet. Ovari<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are a possibility...they can still occur after menopause although it doesn't make any sense since ovulation is supposed an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> be over. Maybe something goes terribly wrong with the final ovulation cycle. I don't think even the docan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>rs understand why it happens, only that it does.
Keep in mind that 95% of ovari<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are benign, but when they occur in post-menopause, docan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>rs get man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>e concerned and do a bit man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>e follow up an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> make sure all is well.

I learned at a transvaginal ultrasound I didnt have fibroids but ovari<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. One was a Heman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>rhagic cyst.

My regular docan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>r (my GP) says that they canan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> do a biopsy on ovari<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, only fan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> endometreocious. I am very wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>ried because I know that if I have ovarian cancer that it is imperative that it is caught early. What do you suggest? I understand that cysts are fed by estrogen. Fan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> years I had large fibroids and now that I am in menopause they have shrunk, so suddenly getting cysts at this time seems very strange.
I have been having lower abdomen problems (burning constantly) fan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> about a year. I have been seeing a Gastroenterologist and have numerous test done and have been diagnosed with GERD and Barretts Esophagus and IBS. I take medication and watch what I eat but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan>hing helps. I had a CT Scan fan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> these problems and it showed a cystic mass on my ovary so I had an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> go an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> my Gyn and had a Pelvic Sonogram.

Also, there were no veins feeding inan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> it. The docan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>r explained it as looking like a bunch of grapes.

If it were me I would have it an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>removean>an>d, since you are in menopause the chances of it being man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>e than just a cyst is increased. My docan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>r an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>ld me if I have anyman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>e problems he will have an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> take my right ovary out.
My mother had ovarian cancer that she had cured and lived 30 plus years past and her 2 sisters died of post menopause breast cancers in thier late 80s so it is there and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>ried till I have an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>.
Well, in any case, they found a very small cyst (which turned out an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> be benign) 2 fibroids which are supposed an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> disappear with menopause and some fluid in the uterus. Had the C&D, removal of ovary (because at my age, who needs that right?).

However, I an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>tally agree with Ireneo; have it checked via transvaginal .

Can you offer some comments on the follow-up course fan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran> this type of cyst?

<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s on post menopausal women can raise some concern. They should prefan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>m blood tests, a CA125, a transvaginal ultrsound, maybe a CT Scan. Did they say the size of the cyst? Once it reaches about 5 cms, most docan style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan>rs will want it an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>removean>an>d as it can cause issues.

Most cysts are benign. Endometriomas are common. Ovari<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> cancer is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>notan> common. Overall, women have a 1 in 80 lifetime risk of ovari<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>an</span> cancer which is one tenth the risk of breast cancer. Now that statistic is a lifetime risk. That is - when your take all 80 an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> 90 years old ladies and look back over their lives. The risk is much lower, the younger you are. So at age 20 the risk of ovarian cancer is very, very small. At age 40 an style = 'background-colan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>oran>: #dae8f4'>toan> 50 the risk is probably 1 in 1000. By age 80 , it is 1 in 80.
