Avatar f tn Sorry me again - I just read up on the link between anemia and ovarian cysts and thought it to be interesting. I had my iron levels tested last year November just after the cyst was drained and my iron levels were borderline with no reserves. I was on iron supplements for 2 months and had blood work done again - just to find that even though there is a slight increase on the normal levels, the reserve levels are still too low. Does anyone else with cysts suffer from anemia?
Avatar f tn I was wondering, do any of you have any experience with anemia that you believe was caused by ovarian cysts? Is that possible? Yes, I have heavy periods from fibroids, but not always, and I have had heavy periods for years without getting anemic. I take apo-ferrous gluconate 300 mg (since Nov) and I am still too low. A symptom of ovarian cancer is anemia but am hoping that mine is just from the fibroids...?
356929 tn?1246393356 Had abdominal CT scan in August (to check liver) and was told that I have fatty liver and ovarian cysts (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.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, I cannot comment on anything but the ovarian cysts. Cysts are very common and most resolve on their own. If yours are not large (over 7 cm or so) and you do not have a predisposition for / family history of ovarian cancer, then they can usually be monitored via periodic ultrasound.
Avatar f tn I had had 3 vertical c-sections and was having severe pain and bleeding along with anemia. When they did the hysterectomy they found that I had bad adhesions and that my bladder was stuck to my uterus which was stuck up to the right to my abdomen. I was in the hospital 4 days and kept having to be recatheterized as my bladder just wouldn't work. The pathology report said it was adenomyosis. I've been having lower left sided pain for weeks and have called the Dr 2 to 3 times.
Avatar n tn my mom has a history of ovarian cysts she thinks that i had a cysts rupture last week.
Avatar n tn I am also anemic. Dr. says anemia is from heavy periods and wants to wait to remove tumor until my blood count is up. (taking iron supplements.) Surgery is scheduled for Nov. Paternal grandmother died of ovarian/cervical cancer at age 84. My father survived prostate cancer at age 65. Ultrasound report: In the right adnexum, are two abnormal appearing structures. The larger more cystic appearing measures 5.2 x3.0 x 3.5cm in size, and the smaller measures 3.3 x1.9 x 2.2 cm in size.
Avatar n tn Anemia, ovarian cysts, kidney cysts, full pancreas, weight gain, horrible cramps and leg pain during menstruation. I have many symptoms of OVCA, but I don't want to be an alarmist! What does it all mean?
Avatar n tn I have read that ca 125 is not a good screening test and can be a false positive die to endometriosis, fibroid tumors, ovarian cysts, and even lupus, all of which I have. Given this info, would it be at all prudent to continue the watchful-wait mode, or proceed with the hysterectomy? The surgery is scheduled in a month, and I am having 2nd thoughts due to the ramifications of a total hysterectomy including ovaries. Thank you so much for any thoughts on this.

Avatar f tn CA125 was 32.5. I also have a family history of ovarian cancer (maternal aunt diagnosed at 39) and breast cancer (sister diagnosed at 36). I now have an appointment with the gyn on March 26...I just want it removed! I am 49 and have 2 children 22 and 24. The ultrasound report is as follows: Findings: Both transvaginal and transabdominal images were obtained. The uterus is anteverted and measures 9.1 x 4.7 x 5.4 cm. The myometrium contains an anterior fibroid measuring 1.
1175284 tn?1263976683 Is it possible I can just get a hysderectomy (sorry about miss spell) and stop all this bleeding and anemia problems? If I do I can NOT tell my husband because he still hopes for a child someday... I am not trying to be mean but I love my husband and I can not lose him. He is all I have.. :(...

Avatar n tn Most ovarian cysts resolve on their own within a few cycles / months, no intervention needed. According to this doctor-authored website - http://ovaryresearch.com/ovarian_cysts.htm - hemorrhagic cysts always resolve on their own. The cyst isn't that big either. The 1.5cm one is "tiny" and it's not uncommon for cysts that appear to be complex to end up not being so (such as your other one that is "likely hemorrhagic").
Avatar f tn benign epithelial and functional ovarian cysts, hemorrhagic ovarian cysts, endometriosis, dermoid cysts (benign teratomas), ovarian fibroids, uterine fibroids, fimbrial cysts, hydrosalpinges (swollen, fluid-filled faloppian tubes), pelvic abscesses, pelvic adhesions, bowel adhesions and adenomyosis.” I am sure once the CA125 results come your doctor will do a more rigorous follow up. Please refer: http://www.wdxcyber.com/ncanc08.htm However it is difficult to diagnose without examining.
Avatar f tn The anemia is from heavy bleeding. I am worried about the biopsy. So many stories about the in office procedure vs hospital. My US was done a week after my cycle. Hopefully I will be able to save my ovary for hormonal reasons. Thanks for responding.
Avatar n tn In the meantime, I have referenced as much information as I can on this report and understand it to imply the possibility of ovarian cancer.
Avatar m tn Causes of menorrhagia are hormonal imbalance, fibroids(benign (non-cancerous) tumors that often occur in the uterus of women during their thirties or forties), uterine cysts(ovarian cysts) and polyps(cervical or endometrial.They are small, fragile,non cancerous growths in the cervix or uterus), some forms of cancer and certain medications. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUD’s) and pelvic inflammatory disease may also lead to excessive bleeding.
Avatar n tn He explained to me that if it doesn't get smaller then I need to get surgery done and remove my right ovarie and my tube. I need some feedback on anyone that went thru this. I want to start a family soon but I am scared if I do this that I won't be able to have a baby. That is my biggest fear. Can someone please give me some ansswers or advice.
Avatar n tn The only problems I had with my pregnancies was low hemoglobin, b-12 and anemia with all four and some adema with just the last one. I hope you don't end up going on and on like I have the last several years. Take care, and let's keep in touch on this. I really think there is something causing all these common symptoms in so many of us. You'll maybe have noted that Sonie is active EB virus too. I don't know for certain that it's my ex-s fault. I just enjoy blaming him for everything. . .
Avatar n tn What kind of doctor would say that you are to young to have on ovarian cyst. How old are you? I am 31 and have been suffering from ovarian cyst since I was in my early 20's. I have had 3 cyst rupture. The pain should be going away soon. Please get another doctor. Do you think that you may have a touch of the ful also? Please keep us posted.
1569750 tn?1295592754 I am 27 yrs old with a history of bilateral ovarian cysts and was recently diagnosed with a 4.7cm COMPLEX cyst on my left ovary. I have been dealing with this issue since last August...I'm a military dependant by the way ugh! First my period stopped completely for a couple months and I thought I was pregnant but come to find out the cyst was the cause. I've always had periods that seemed very long...
Avatar n tn Now Im almost 38 years of age and because of ovarian cysts have been in and out of the hospitals for ct scans, sonograms, etc...I went 2 hospital last friday again for the 3rd time this month and they said my 1.3 cm ovarian cyst had not changed..Take meds go home and call dr. on friday...Well I called my surgeon who had scheduled a laparoscopy feb,20th pending getting 20 year old medical records from another state...Ive been in so much pain since last friday I just lay and cry...
Avatar n tn I had my first child at age 18 and my first laproscopy at age 20 with the removal of three ovarian cysts one on the fallopian tube and the other two on the left ovary. I had my second child this year in feb and in april had a sono due to pelvic pain which revealed a simple cyst on the right and a bilateral simple cyst on the left. I then had the IUD put in because I had decided I did not want any more children.
Avatar n tn I am 45 year old mother of four, with a history of ovarian cysts on and off over the past 15 years. All cysts have resolved on their own to date. A little over 2 years ago, I began taking Ovcon 35, in an effort to prevent the cysts from occuring (I was also having a lot of trouble with heavy and prolonged periods, anemia, etc.) Approximately 6-7 months ago, I began experiencing symptoms including breast tenderness, bloating, major mood swings, etc. I made an appt.
Avatar n tn I have a 25 year old daughter who has 2 large cysts, one is 9 cm and one is 15 cm. She has krones also and so is used to abdominal pain, so she's just been ignoring and extra discomfort she's been feeling lately. My 70 year old mother is loosing her fight with ovarian cancer so you can just imagine how terrified I was when my daughter came up with some large masses in the abdominal cavity this week.
Avatar f tn Hey guys, I FINALLY got the call back from my ObGyn (well, the nurse) about my ultrasound and blood results. But the nurse was so insanely vague about it that I'm really nervous again, lol. She told me nothing looked worrisom, but I do have some elevations and anemia. She didn't give me a "for certain" answer on the CA-125 test, she just said she looked over it real quick and it appeared normal. God, I hope she's right.
