ovarian-cysts

Avatar_f_tn are they simple, complex, are there solid areas within the cyst, are the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s persistent over time Most ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s go away because they are just related top the menstrual cycle.
Avatar_f_tn There is a risk of it being cancerous, but it is quite small depending on the type of cyst and your age. According to wikipedia 95% of ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are benign. Try not to worry too much until you get the result of your blood test or more information from your doctor.
Avatar_f_tn 18mL. Can anyone explain to me the difference in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> being so large? Would that volume include the cyst? I am just having a hard time wrapping my head around the whole thing.
1035692_tn?1252674334 i have ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s 3years already until now,iam scared to removed it,but my doctor advised me to take diane 35 for reducing the size of my cysts and its work,thats why i continue using diane 35 until now,advised me please if this is the best medicine that i need to take or you have much better to remove my cysts totally without operation process.thank you so much!!!
Avatar_f_tn Were they able to determine if it is attached to your ovary? Sometimes when the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> is that large is it hard to tell where it came from. But if it is complex (has solid parts) then it is more worrisome for cancer. Try not to worry because most cysts do turn out to be benign...even large ones. But, since you are post menopausal and your mass is so large...you should consult a gynecolgical oncologist just to be safe.
Avatar_n_tn Are you menopausal now or going through peri-menopause? If you're still having some cycles, then your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are probably normal. The cyst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> is about the norm for monthly functional cysts. Hot flashes, emotional upheavals, erratic periods and insomnia are some of the usual symptoms of peri-menopause. Your doctor can monitor the cysts, make sure they don't get too large or cause problems.
Avatar_n_tn I am scared and confused. have had ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. Was offered removal of cyst/mass through laparoscopy. Has anyone had this done? Also I am concerned as the masses have gotten large then changed in size? Thanks for your answers.
Avatar_n_tn im 38 years old had the ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s since i was 19 years old,at that time it was a golf ball size now its 5cms ive seen it on utrasound,in the last month i had sex and was in a lot of pain couldnt walk and rolling around in lots of pain ,i get pain when use my bowels not all the time,and stomach pain and back pain,i all so have pins and needle in my hands and feet they go num ,can it become canceries,have to see a gynaecology on the 24th jan 2007, im just very worries as they told me when i wa
Avatar_n_tn my regular doctor (my GP) says that they cannot do a biopsy on ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s, only for endometreocious. I am very worried 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. For 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.
Avatar_f_tn Quite commonly you'll get a cyst on the follicle from which the egg was released during ovulation. I had one on my left ovary in the very beginning of my pregnancy, so the doctor knows that I ovulated from the left side. Not sure the size of mine, but I have heard it can cause some issues if it is really large. If it's "normal" size and from ovulation, it will typically just go away on it's own. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
Avatar_n_tn I have larger <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s about the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> of a large grapefruit apparently. I have recently had a vaginal ultrasound and only one cross hatch on the cyst so they don't think it is cancerous. I have, however, recently been having very bad back pain and weight gain. my doctor said that the cysts are not the cause of this but these posts indicate that the cysts may cause these symptoms. Should I get the cysts out and if so, the ovaries too? I am 49 and can't have kids.
Avatar_n_tn I have been looking into the provera treatment and all I can find is that it is 'standard'...nothing linking it to increasing the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. I have put on a few pounds recently..but thought it had to do with either the provera or stress from this thing. Do you have any advice on what to do now???
187799_tn?1219613173 Hi All - I used to be a regular on the ovarian cancer forum, but since this forum has opened I believe this is where I belong. I've had issues with ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s for quite some time (actually had some severe problems just a year ago). Well, I'm just about to head out to the ER again and was looking for some support/advice. The pain on both sides is getting pretty bad and it is extremely tender to touch on either side.
600006_tn?1219855170 the utrasound came back showing that I did have some ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. The Doctor told me that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s were normal and to not worry about anything unless I have pain. Now I know ovarian cysts are normal and that when you have your menstral cycle it washes them out, so I am not so much worried about having them, I am more concerned about the Doctor being an idiot... There has to be some kind of reason that I have not started my period.
10299247_tn?1409212476 They are ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s I have had them for about a year now. and if I walk to stand for to long they hurt so bad like really bad cramps only on the left and right side never anywherr else and its always in the same spot.
Avatar_n_tn This means that the cyst has some solid matter in it, whereas most functional <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s are filled fluid. I would be concerned about the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> of it. Since you are already taking harmone therapy, it's obvious that you don't need your ovary anymore. If it were me I would have it removed, since you are in menopause the chances of it being more than just a cyst is increased. my doctor told me if I have anymore problems he will have to take my right ovary out.
1337047_tn?1275917664 You shouldn't have to wait for a mass that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span>. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer 3 years ago at the age of 37. I hope all turns out to be benign, but I couldn't let you post pass by without sharing my thoughts! Best wishes to you. I hope you get help soon!
Avatar_n_tn I've been on BC for about 4 months and still bleeding and hurting from ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. It's to a point that it's gotten to be so painful that I've been to the ER once already. my doctor just want to do a hysterectomy and get it over with, I thought they were supposed to do the pill then laparoscopy, then hysterectomy. At this point all I want is a partial hysterectomy, I'm frustrated, in pain and just plain miserable.
Avatar_f_tn Go to a gynecological oncologist before you do anything. I had a large, complex ovarian cyst, and my OB/GYN was so sure it must be a (benign) dermoid cyst that I didn't go to the gynecological oncologist until it was too late. While the odds of an ovarian cyst harboring cancer are small, only a gynecological oncologist can give you the expert opinion you need. Especially with a family history of ovarian cancer, you can NOT afford to take chances.
Avatar_f_tn Hey Ladies, So I am new to this forum and I really need some advice on what I need to do. I have suffered so much from large ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s for many many years. I am 29 years old. I have 2 children aged 5 and 3.5 with no plans to have anymore children. when I was 20 I started having some issues. cervical cancer, extreme pain during my menstrual cycles, extreme pain from the cysts I was having. I had surgeries to remove the affected cervical tissues and everything is all good now with that.
Avatar_f_tn In the meantime, I already know that I have a tipped uterus, and have been experiencing imense amounts of back pain, part of it I attribute to the weight loss that I have indured due to an extremely affected loss of appetite, but I wanted to know if any of you have had any experience with this type of situation, and if extremely large <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s and a tipped uterus could cause the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s to put enough pressure on the colon and spine to be able to cause the intensity of back pain that I am deali
Avatar_n_tn Could <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> cause such pain? 3. Should I be concerned with these <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s in reference to my ca 125 level? 4. Can these cysts be causing the nausea? 5. Should I ask for these cysts to be removed surgically? 6. Does the continued pain indicate that the cysts are growing larger? Your opinion is greatly appreciated and thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.
1412514_tn?1283169297 I have been reading this site religiously for two month after I was diagnose with Ovarian <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. The Huge football <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s were found by an Ultrasound scan to look for a missing coil, accidently they found ovarian cysts, and here is my Story( sorry about the bad grammar ) I am a 30 year old female Living in the UK, NO kids a little heavy period due to coil fitted in 1 year ago. have family history of Ovarian cysts ( Mom had a cyst few years ago at the age of 54).
Avatar_n_tn I want to know what your thoughts are on doing Hysterectomy and /or oopherectomy for a large cyst with history of LMP. I have tt Oncologist/Gynelocogist who says size is irrelavant and CA 125 in 40 yr old is unreliable due to great variances in numbers. Also was told that surgery is not really necessary for these cysts even with LMP with unilateral oopherectomy history. I was also told a laproscopy to look at the ovary would tell much less than reading the transvaginal ultrasound report.
Avatar_n_tn I now have several more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cyst</span>s. The tech was very nervous acting during the exam. I was shocked at the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>size</span> of the cyst on the screen. my doctor said her gut tells her that these are cysts, but she also said, "I hope we didn't just watch cancer grow." (Yes I was shocked too.) I am 36 years old and 4.5 years ago I had major pelvic reconstructive surgery. She wants me to go to a uro-gyno for a complete hysterectomy. my uro-gyno says I need to see a gyno oncologist.
