Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts common


Avatar n tn how big are the cysts? Turn out benign ovarian cysts are very common in the menopause. Clearly they are not related to ovulation. but benign tumors are common. Also fluid can build up in an adhesion after surgery. that can look like a cyst.
Avatar n tn I have had several operations for ovarian cysts removal. 12 years ago I had my right ovary removed because the cyst spread over the whole ovary, and 2 years ago it spread to the left ovary, and had that removed. Now the cyst on my left ovary has resurfaced. I am feeling alot of pain, and I have been to the doctor and was told to follow up on my cyst but I never did because of insurance reasons. But I have been having pains on my left side, like a burning and painful sensation.
Avatar n tn Ask what his advice is regarding the cysts.. You said you had an appt. with OB.. I'm hoping that's an OB/Gyn. Cysts are very very common and are 95% benign. Usually they like to monitor them for a few months to see if they resolve on their own.. Again, see what his advice is.
Avatar f tn At such a young age it can eb dermoid cyst which is a type of complex ovarian cyst and is the most common type and develops during the childbearing age. Complex ovarian cysts are generally benign. The risk of malignancy is generally higher among postmenopausal women. Most ovarian cysts disappear in 8 to 12 weeks. If they persist then before going in for surgery we can try the birth control pills also. Continuous bleeding can be due to the Mirena IUD.
Avatar f tn Just another comment to echo Trudie.. Cysts are so common in younger women.. and 95% or them are benign and nothing to worry about.. Many times, we have them and don't even realize it...Bet he'll want to check it in a few months.. And, yes...check out the Health Pages..
Avatar n tn Mostly they are symptomless But Ovarian cysts can, however, cause problems if they twist, bleed, or rupture. Most ovarian cysts will go away on their own. One of the most effective treatments for ovarian cysts is use of contraceptive pills or progesterone pills. It can also be treated surgically and this procedure is known as drilling. Other modes of treatment are laparoscopic surgery, laparotomy or surgery for complicated ovarian cysts.
Avatar f tn Welcome to the community. Ovarian cysts are common. Most resolve on their own in 2 to 3 cycles, no intervention needed. Did the CT specify the type of cysts or at least their characteristics (simple fluid filled, complex, dermoid, hemorrhagic, etc.)? Size can be a problem as larger cysts have the potential to cause ovarian torsion which can be very painful and cause the ovary to die. But at the same time you do not want to have surgery unnecessarily.
Avatar n tn Bladder infections are not uncommon, and cysts are also a common cause of pain during intercourse. If the pain persists after your infection has been treated, go back to your doctor or seek out another opinion if you feel your doctor isn't being helpful. Sometimes the cause of pain during sex is difficult to discern.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I am 16 years old, I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts after many times to the hospital in may. I've been to my OB several of times. But everytime I go she kinda brushes off my symptoms. I'm having fatigue, low energy, frequent headaches, back pain, hip pain, and of course low abdominal pain. I'm also in constant pain, at times it gets worse. I was put on birth control for the hormones, for the hope the cysts would go away and I would start my period, I haven't had since August 26th.
Avatar f tn But im still unsure as this could be water retention due to the injection. I've heard this injection has been proven to cause ovarian cysts, is this true? I was just wondering, if someone could identify with my symptoms? And how i would go about getting a screening, as i am only 18?
Avatar m tn Ovarian cysts, whether or not associated with PCOS, can cause hormonal changes which may affect weight. And pain levels are not always tied to the size of the cyst. I had a 9.5cm cyst and gained a slight bit of weight but had only one day of pain. If I recall, the pain was throughout my lower abdomen. Hopefully, your surgeon is planning on removing just the cysts and saving both ovaries since the ovaries produce hormones to at least about age 80.
Avatar m tn If the cysts look like a "string of beads" you could have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Other common traits of PCOS are excess body and/or facial hair, oily and acne-prone skin, being overweight or tendency to gain easily, irregular periods (I think they say 4 or less periods per year). Another possibility is endometriosis which causes pelvic pain and can cause ovarian cysts.
Avatar n tn Now I am 27 and the doc is kind of worry with my cyst because it's getting bigger and it kind of ruptures every months and then fills back, just like if it was a folicular cyst but it's getting bigger. Cysts are very common, not that it makes it ok, but at least is not a rare disease. What type of cyst do you have? are you on pain? I hope this can help you to calm down a little.
Avatar f tn They wantedt to wait and see if they changed in two weeks times so I have a new ultrasound scheduled for next week. i have read alot of posts and seem that ovarian cysts are very common and especially after chemo. If they stay the same can they biopsy my ovary and the cysts before removing the ovary. Or should I just bite bullet and have them take it out? More chemo? What's next.
Avatar n tn Ovarian cysts are very common and you probably have had some without even knowing it. Almost all women get them with their cycle, but they usually go down on their own. We don't know a lot about cysts on this forum, because most of the women here never had cysts before they had cancer. However, you will most likely find women who can help you, women who have been in your situation in the Ovarian Cyst forum.
Avatar n tn Ovarian cysts are extremely common - so do not worry. However, they can also be extremely painful and can grow extremely large. Each month, when a woman ovulates, small follicles form on the outer part of the ovary. These follicles look like little marbles almost through an ultrasound. Now, during your period - these follicles are, keyword here 'supposed' to break free with the lining of your period but for some women, they do not.
Avatar m tn It is common to try birth control for a month or two for certain types of cysts. I have actually had large painful cysts that had to be removed surgically. I hope the Junel does the trick and your feeling better in no time. You can double check with your doctor or pharmacist that short term use is ok with your concerns and family history. Best wishes to you!
Avatar n tn GI problems are a common symptom of ovarian cysts. I would highly suggest that you get a 2nd opinion from a gyn/onc. They are specialists in womens gyn issues and have seen it all. You should not get the run around with a gyn/onc. Although 99% of ovarian cysts are benign, you need medical attention. Do not ignore your symptoms. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Avatar f tn I have ovarian cysts which the doctor said arent too big, though I think they are 3 of them. I was wondering if it is common for such severe pain down my left leg? I cant even sleep. I am about to start my period, but havent yet. I'm such a worry wart I think about blood clots and fear the worst. Though I dont see any swelling or redness anywhere. I just cant believe how painful it is to sit, lay down, etc. So I guess I am just curious if cysts can cause extreme leg pain?
Avatar f tn Thank you for answering my question in regards to ovarian cysts. The ultra sound did show that it was fluid filled, and didn't appear to have solid matter. Also, there were no veins feeding into it. The doctor explained it as looking like a bunch of grapes. I went through menopause many years ago, and had my tubes tied at 40. I had been on birthcontrol pills prior to having a tubal. How would they remove a cyst that is 24 cm?
256161 tn?1196882646 I know lyme causes all kinds of different cysts. I'm not sure about the ovarian cysts though as they are quite common in women in general. Flagyl is a cyst buster so if you have lyme you may feel the herx reaction.
564029 tn?1216426819 There are different types of cysts, you can go to the link on the top of this page on the right that says health forum, and there is a list for all types of ovarian cysts. Did your dr. tell you what kind of cyst you have? Have you had a TV/US? During your reproductive years it is very common to get functional ovarian cysts that can disappear after a few menstrual cycles. Could it be your doctor is doing a watchful waiting to see if they go away? How long have you had the cyst?
Avatar f tn ovarian cycts are actually fairly common, if the doctor is not concerned you dont need to be either
Avatar n tn Don't panic. Cysts are very common and 95% of them are benign. You didn't give anymore information as to what kinds of cyst it is, or how big. Your doctor is being proactive in having a ct scan. Take it one day at a time, go for the CT scan and discuss the results of your scan and ultrasound with your doctor. You can go to the right hand side of this page at the top, where it says Health Pages and look up the information on cysts, maybe that will help.
