609745 tn?1223401677 Hi All, I'm new to the forum, (found it during a search for "ovarian cysts" on the internet) I just joined today. I was so glad to have found this forum as I have some questions. Here's the background info first: I was taken to the ER on this past Tuesday with severe abdominal & back pain (on the same side). After a urine test & trans vaginal sonogram was done, it was determined that I had "multiple" (ER docs words) cysts.
Avatar n tn her dr thought she had had removed 2 dermoid cysts removed last week. the pathology report results showed that both cysts are cancerous. they are going back in to remove the ovary involved and examine the other one and starting chemotherapy within 2 weeks. her appendix also looked enlarged while dr was removing cysts but it was not removed at that time. she is perfectly healthy otherwise and has never gotten pregnant, she dreams of having children. i am terrified...
Avatar m tn Hi there ovaries are dynaminc and are constantl changing during the reproductive years so depending on where you are in your menstrual cycle, you willse ovarian cysts at different stages of development and resolution that are related to ovulation.
Avatar n tn When having an ultrasound, what does it mean when the ovary and the cyst are deep black? cyst is 3cm and ovary is enlarged. Is there a site I can go to to see pictures of ovarian cysts and their diagnosis?
Avatar f tn I'm not one of those people and my non-technical explanation is not medical fact, just an attempt to explain how ultrasound is used for diagnosing cysts. It cannot diagnose cancer or benign, but some features traditionally indicate a higher likelihood for one or the other, and that controls how the doctors will respond with treatment. If they think it is OK to wait a few weeks and re-check then, they are not overly worried. Of course, doctors are humans, too, and can make mistakes.
Avatar f tn On Sunday evening I decided to admit myself to the hospital and they quickly took me in and did cat scan and found everything normal, no appendicitis ruled out. They performed an ultrasound and couldn't get images of my right part so they did transvaginal testing and found out that I have cyst in both of my ovaries and moderate amount of free fluid containing echogenic debris in the cul de sac area.
Avatar f tn 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 1.3 cm and a posterior fibroid measuring 2.7 cm. The endometrium measures 1.04 cm and appears homogeneous. Within right adnexa there is a multicystic mass measuring 5.1 x 4.2 x 4.2 cm containing low level echoes which may be consistent with endometrioma.
Avatar m tn Ultrasound pelvis, ultrasound transvaginal. Exam date: November 27, 2013. Clinical History: Left pelvic pain. Technique: Multiple transabdominal and transvaginal sonographic images of the pelvis were obtained. No prior studies are available for comparison Findings: The uterus measures approximately 7.8 x 3.8 x 5.6 cm in overall dimension and demonstrates a relatively homogeneous myometrial echotexture. There is a single 1.9 cm posterior left fundal subserosal fibroid.
Avatar f tn If someone had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, would the cysts be visable on an ultrasound?
Avatar f tn 29 yr old female with right-sided pelvic pain and vaginal bleeding. Technique: Transabdominal and endovaginal probes were used to obtain images of the patient’s pelvis. Findings: The uterus is retroflexed. Measuring 6.6 x 4.5 x 3.7cm. A 1.2 x 0.9 x 0.8 cm hypoechoic focus is present in the posterior left myometrium. The endometrial stripe is 8.4 mm. No fluid within the endocervical canal. Nabothian cysts are present. Right ovary measures 4.2 x 3.2 x2.
Avatar n tn , more easily than abdominal. They can also visualize smaller cysts that might be missed on the abdominal ultrasound. It could be that one measurement is for your cyst, and the other is for your ovary. Does it ever mention the size of your OTHER ovary? Or does it ever mention the exact size of your cyst(s)? I just looked at my report again and they only use one report, but it doesn't say which ultrasound it was from (I also had an abdominal and vaginal one on the same day).
Avatar f tn On the right, there is a small complex cyst in the adnexa measuring 1.8 x 1.6 x 1.2. I'm confused by this since my right ovary and tube were removed. So, what is the right adnexa? On the left adnexa, there is a complex cystic structure measuring up to 7.9 cm which has two components. One has more cystic components measuring 3.7 x 2.9 x 4.9 cm. More anteriorly, the complex cystic lesion has more soft tissue density and measures 2.8 x 3.3 x 1.7 cm.
Avatar f tn Here is my previous question with the TVUS results: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn The blood test CA-125 is a test used by Dr's as a guide to determine if you have the most common form of ovarian cancer, approximately 80% of all ovarian cancers are epitheal ovarian cancer which is cancer of the cells on the surface of your ovary. Please keep in mind that CA-125 can be elevated if your menstruating and some other causes of inflamation..
Avatar n tn The TVS showed 3 areas of blood flow to that area. My CA125 was only 17 but I have jewish ancestry and a family history of ovarian cancer in my aunt and breast cancer in my mother and other female relatives. I am 53 years old/post-menopause. The reason for my question is this: I saw a gyn-onc last week who advised me to have another TVS mid-February to check the size of the cyst.
Avatar f tn I do know that unless you have the BRCA gene you have a 1.4% chance of Ovarian Cancer in a lifetime so it is rare. 98% of ovarian cysts are benign. It is even more rare to have ovarian cancer in both ovaries at the same time. Your lymph nodes are normal. There is no cancer in your peritoneal cavity which you would see if it were cancer. I was full of cancer in my peritoneal cavity. They can't completely rule out cancer with out doing pathology of tissue. You have cysts in both ovaries.
Avatar n tn After having a pelvic ultrasound, my DR. told me that I have a 2cm complex ovarian cyst on my right ovary. He said that 98% of the time they go away on their own. I am having another ultrasound in 1 month. I am a bit anxious and concerned about this. Has anyine had an experience with this? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Asymptomatic premenopausal patients with simple ovarian cysts less than 10 cm in diameter can be observed or placed on suppressive therapy with oral contraceptives. Postmenopausal women with simple cysts less than 3 cm in diameter may also be followed, provided the serum CA-125 level is not elevated and the patient has no signs or symptoms suggestive of malignancy. This is a good article I think you will find some answers here http://www.aafp.org/afp/980515ap/drake.
Avatar n tn I have suffered with ovarian cysts for 20 years...I had several operations (laparoscopies) 2 remove cysts, scar tissue, leisons, endodometriosis etc....In 1995 1 hour after my baby boy was born, my uterus died..Don't remember the exact medical term but it happens in 1 in 2 million women, supposedly...Anyway they did an emergency hysterectomy and took everything but my ovaries....Because I was only 25...
Avatar f tn 8cm cystic structure within the superior aspect of the right adnexa, superior to the right humerus which MAY represent an ovarian cyst. (Suggest Order an Ultrasound) 6.Sever degenerative disk disease L3 & L4 leverl, worse on right with endplate sclerosis and vacuum phenomenon. So then I had an MRI that showed: 1.No abnormalties in my lung. 2.1.3 x 1.0 x 1.
Avatar n tn I had a MRI done for my back and one of the results they found was a 6 centimeter cyst in my right ovary and pelvic fluid. I was recommended to go to my GYN and get an ultrasound. I am on the Mirena contraceptive. I am concerned about cancer. Could it be that being on Mirena might of caused this cyst? I am having lots of pelvic pain and back pain. I am very concerned and I have an appt. scheduled with my GYN on the 4th of May. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn Nothing but a biopsy done at the time of surgery can diagnose ovarian cancer. The good news is that more than 90% of ovarian cysts or masses are benign. But there is always a chance so you do want to take care of this as quickly as possible. Since surgery is in the picture, you should see a Gynecological Oncologist. They are specially trained to remove cancer of the reproductive organs and debulk (remove residual cancer) the areas that are close-by.
Avatar n tn Hi all, This is my first time here...and saw all the messages regarding ovarian cysts & had to jump in with what I know. Basically a hemorrhagic cyst is cyclical (I believe they are sometimes call chocolate cysts) and should go away with next cycle, a simple cyst is in fact fluid filled and considered harmless and benign, a complex cyst on the other hand is solid and suspect and should always be investigated further.
Avatar f tn Sorry you are dealing with this! MOST ovarian cysts are benign including ones that look suspicious. If you do not have a genetic predisposition for ovarian cancer then your lifetime chances of getting it are very slim (less than 2%). I had a similar cyst although mine was larger - 9.5cm. It had some solid matter and some septations. Characteristics that are concerning are thick walls, thick septations, solid components, "finger-like" projections, ascites.
Avatar n tn 2 cm clear cyst and ovaries appeared less prominent than in March. So...because of some dull pain in left side I had another ultrasound in March 06. Now it says right ovary appeared slightly prominent and left now had a cyst with a septation. The cyst measured 3.8 x3.4. It is unclear etiology. I have a second opinion scheduled in two weeks. The Ca 125 blood test was normal. Is this familiar to anyone? Any suggestions on what to bring for second opinion?
