682122 tn?1233190151 Ovarian cysts are mostly benign, but there are riskier in older women. From what I have been told, in the case of older women, they might remove the whole ovary to avoid regrowth of the cyst. If discovered to be cancerous, they will remove both oavaries and fallopian tubes. It also depends on what type of cyst you have. Were you told? Talk to your doctor about how he/she plans on approaching this. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I recently was diagnosed with complex ovarian cysts. On my left side I have one that is 6.7cm and attached to it another 2.5cm. On my right side I have 3 additional cysts all together measuring about 2cm. One of those is hemorragic and bursting. I have extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, and can not eat normal portions of food anymore without feeling extremely full and nauseous. I have been tested for cancer and it was negative and I am on premetrium to stop ovary production.
Avatar f tn did anyone see the news last night.a woman lost her life to ovarian cancer after Dr s told her she had IBS and she had been back and forth to DRs A&E 40 times and no one listened to her. also read of so many stories of people who have ovarian cysts which scans dont pick up and therefore |Drs ignore their symtpons. I am experiencing the same having been to my DR and A&E fro over a year with a huge swollen solid lumpy abdomen and painful ribs no one will listen to me or give any answers.
600006 tn?1219855170 the utrasound came back showing that I did have some ovarian cysts. The Doctor told me that the cysts 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.
Avatar m tn They should work you in sooner given your symptoms. Some types of cysts can grow more rapidly than others and the risk of rupture increases as the size increases. Do you know if it is complex? What type of surgeon are you seeing? Any complex cyst over 5cm has a slight possibility of being malignant. If your find your mass is complex, you need to see a gynecologic oncologist prior to your surgery.
Avatar n tn Although 99% of ovarian cysts are benign, you need medical attention. Do not ignore your symptoms. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
1337047 tn?1275917664 I don't want to frighten you because there is no way to know for sure if you have ovarian cancer until you remove the tumor and biopsy it. But, the symptoms you are describing coupled with your high CA-125 are concerning. 1500 is a pretty high reading for CA-125. The risk of a malignant cyst is increased in postmenopausal women too. I can see you are in Canada and so I don't really know what to recommend as far as speeding up the medical process.
Avatar n tn Hey everyone. I have a feeling I have been getting ovarian cysts for the last few months because 2 weeks before AF until the time she comes I have a constant pain on the left side. This is my 4th month TTC. Has anybody been able to get pg when you had cysts on your ovaries? I'm not sure if cysts can affect the chances of conceiving or not! I went to the doctor to be treated for a UTI and explained this pain, implying it might be a cyst. He didn't seem concerned at all.
Avatar n tn Yes, a cyst can indeed cause these symptoms and pain, and any doctor who tells you otherwise must surely be either (1) a man, or (2) a woman who has never suffered a cyst herself! Yes, it is the sad truth - the symptoms of benign ovarian cysts and tumors are the same as the symptoms of malignant ovarian cyst and tumors. That is why when all the tests and all the images are done, the doctor still cannot say for certain whether a cyst is malignant of benign until surgery.
Avatar n tn Just to let you know 99% of all ovarian cysts are benign. You may want to get a second opinion regarding surgery, it couldn't hurt. Some cysts do resolve on their own so you may not need surgery. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Avatar n tn My doctors OBGYN and Medical Oncologist both say Tamoxifen does not cause cysts but I have read many articles saying there is a high percentage and correlation of ovarian cysts in premenpausal women. It appears to be recent studies in the last few years. Are my doctors just not keeping up with readings or are these journals on the internet not accurate? What is the Cleveland Clinics view on this topic. I am trying to decide whether I should stop taking Tamoxifen or not.
Avatar f tn 2 years back I was told that I have ovarian cysts (the doctor say me once, and told me to go to a specialist, but w/o insurance I could not afford it) The cysts keep reoccurring (or are not going away), and are getting more and more painful. I I have varying amounts of pain day-to-day, ranging from my pelvis, abdomen, lower back, and then down my thighs (when it's really bad). It hurts to cough, sometimes pee, have sex, and walk (when it's really bad).
167426 tn?1254089835 Women who are postmenopausal and develop ovarian cysts have a higher risk of ovarian cancer. Symptoms Many women with ovarian cysts do not display any symptoms. However, a cyst will sometimes cause the following: pressure, fullness, or pain in the abdomen; dull ache in the lower back and thighs; problems passing urine completely; pain during sexual intercourse; weight gain; painful menstrual periods and abnormal bleeding; nausea or vomiting; and breast tenderness.
Avatar f tn hi I had a 10cm Dermoid cysts removed in 2010 along with my right ovary then not 5 months after my op i started getting pain on my left side after the doctor telling me it was also IBS OR A UTI OR PID (Pelvic inflammatory disease) and put on more antibiotics than i can remember and also told it was nothing and made to feel like i was going mad i had another ultrasound which found i had another 3cm dermoid cysts.
Avatar f tn I am a 47 year old mom of 3 boys, ages 6, 10 and 12. Last month I had a pelvic ultrasound and was told I have 2 complex ovarian cyst on my right ovary. I wasn't too concerned about it until I "googled" complex ovarian cysts..then I became terrified of ovarian cancer. My GP has scheduled a follow -up ultrasound next Monday (4weeks from the first u/s) I dont't know the size of the cysts or any other details at this point. I am premenopausal, healthy, I exercise and I'm not over weight.
Avatar n tn First of all let me reassure you that you are wise in seeking medical attention. Although 99% of ovarian cysts are benign, you are doing the right thing. These cysts can cause so many symptoms from severe acid reflux to changing your mentrual cycle due to hormonal imbalances. And let's not forget the pain that they can cause from your rib cage to the back side of your leg. I am glad that you are finally getting the us.
Avatar n tn My question is does anyone out there have cysts with no symptoms. The cysts I have now range from 4 to 5 cm & I couldn't even tell you that they are there. They never bother me. I'll find out excatly what size they are today when I go to the Dr. If anyone out there has cysts with no symptoms could you tell me what kind of cysts you have and how has your Dr. treated you.
Avatar f tn How are they different from functional ovarian cysts? A little background I have kept small cysts on and off for year in May of this year I went in and had a small (1.7 cm) cyst on my right ovary and was told it was a normal, functional cyst. Also, my uterine lining was very thick almost double it's normal size (12 cm). So agaist my wishes I went on micronor which is the mini pill to help break down the lining.
Avatar f tn Have I seen a doctor, had a CT scan, a pelvic, anything that has come out and said, you may have OVARIAN CANCER or did I Google my symptoms and ovarian cancer just happened to come up as one of the hundreds of things it could be.
Avatar f tn I'm sorry you are dealing with this. Have you been diagnosed or have symptoms (besides the cysts) of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) such as excess body and facial hair, acne or oily skin, being overweight or tendency to gain easily, irregular periods? I have read that the cysts of PCOS don't generally cause pain or discomfort but don't know if that is true in all cases.
Avatar n tn I found out my biological mother had hysterectomy in early 40's from ovarian cysts (I think, I have no contact with my biological mom). I'm very athletic and have been on birth control since I was 18 yrs old. I have no kids and all paps/exams are normal. However, in the past 6 months I have gained approximately 12 lbs and is concentrated in abdominal area (I normally gain weight in my legs and butt).
Avatar f tn I am very concerned since there is a history of so many cancers in my family including ovarian, colon and breast cancer. Yet I know that these symptoms could simply be caused by the cysts on my ovaries and am worrying about nothing. I called my doctor about my symptoms and scheduled an appointment. It took them a month to get me in and then when I got there my doctor had gone home so they sent me to another doctor who was new and taking my doctor's overflow.
201897 tn?1245845934 Interestingly enough, a lot of them also have issues with cysts and/or symptoms primarily on the left side of their bodies. Hrmmmm. Would love to find a study where folks with both thyroid issues and cysts get nutrition blood panels run. Wondering if there's any correlation, since many of us with thyroid issues are iron, vit D, and/or iodine-deficient. Thanks again!
518121 tn?1211755334 Hi, am 45 years old married and no children, I was recently diagnosed with endometrosis ovarian cysts, and calcium deposit in my right kidney, I was having this symptoms since I was 15, like, pelvic pain, pain in my right side, I did IVF in 1997 and had my fellopian tubes open 5 years ago but did not get pregnant. How did doctors miss the endometriosis and cysts when they performed surgeries and IVF?
Avatar n tn Ovarian cancer and benign ovarian cysts cause the same symptoms, how lucky for us. They usually do a follow up ultrasound 4-6 weeks after the initial one to see if the cysts have resolved themselves or if they're growing. If they are still hanging around, the only way to know what's going on for sure is to biopsy them. It seems crazy that in this day and age, we have to undergo surgery to find out - but right now, it's the only way.
