Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts wiki


Avatar n tn Hi Kkccoo, I am in a similar situation right now. I went in for a pap (I'm 27, 2 adoptive children, no biological children of my own) and after the pelvic, ultra sound and transvaginal, confirmed I have a cantaloupe sized mass on/around my ovaries as well. Aside from being more tired than usual, and a little forgetful, I've had no side-effects of it as well. From what I've read, however, these things can creep so slowly that you don't even realize you are sick and/or changing.
Avatar f tn I am also prone to ovarian cysts. Could I be pregnant?
5138647 tn?1364232335 I am 32 and have dealt with ovarian cysts for over 12 years now. I have never in my life had a regular period. I have had surgery twice to remove cysts that wouldn't go away and were bothersome. I have also had endometriosis that they saw during surgery and got that taken care of that day. I will sometimes experience pain in what feels like is in my ovaries but it normally goes away within a few minutes.
Avatar n tn I'm so sorry you are going through this. You should know that we aren't doctors here, just people who have experienced cysts. There is a related expert forum where you can ask a question (see bottom right). You also might want to ask your question on the ovarian cancer forum but don't name it a cyst issue, mention teratoma. What is your doctor saying? I'm surprised they didn't do a hysterectomy before.
Avatar f tn I am concerned about ovarian cysts, or perhaps its only a sebaceous cyst? im not sure. But my best friend has sebaceous cysts, is it possible that i could get them from being around her? your comments and/or answers would be GREATLY appreciated. thanks!
Avatar n tn Hello, I completely understand your frustration. It is scary finding out you have something that shouldn't be there and told to wait it out. Did you have an ultrasound or transvaginal ulrasound? I ask because I don't believe ovarian cysts can be detected through a papsmear. Do you know the size of the cyst or type of cysts? If not I would ask for a copy of the report as you mind it helpful to find out more information while you "wait".
256161 tn?1196879046 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.

393685 tn?1425812522 We generally post links to other sites that can explain in more professional detail the issues we have with Ovarian Cancer or ovarian cysts. I don't know what problems you have had on your HPages, but we would not want anyone messing with ours. We have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure that accurate info from reputable institutions are being added to the healthpages.
Avatar f tn HI, Even though you may not want any more children, you are too young for a hysterectomy. The bleeding can be stopped with help of haemostatic medicines and with use of hormones like progestins. Also a D&C may sometimes be necessary to stop the bleeding. The ovarian cysts need further evaluation regarding their size and nature. Many of the cysts in young women respond to birth control pills or regress spontaneously. Hence it would be best to consult a gynaecologist for an evaluation.
Avatar n tn I think possibliy you mean ovarian cysts instead of ovarian fibriods as fibriods are assoicated with the Uterus and ovarian cysts are associated with the ovaries.

Avatar n tn Interestingly I also have liver cysts - called simple cysts. There may be no connection of course. But I have read somewhere that ovarian cysts can be connected to PPIs. I also have gastro polyps as a result of long term use of PPIs. To avoid the polyps you might want to consider getting off PPIs once you have the acid reflux under control - and then seriously change your diet to make sure you don't get reflux again (less animal fats, sugars, acid food etc.).
Avatar f tn I had 5 lg ovarian cysts that my dr. (OBGYN fertility) wanted to surgically remove from my uterus. I had a friend tell me about CASTER OIL as a remedy for naturally removing the cysts by using "cold pressed caster oil compresses". I tried this and it worked !!!- it actually removed all 5 of my cysts!! Now my doctor is upset with me. Saying it's not safe. Really and surgery is?? People have use caster oil since Before Christ. Why is this not safe?
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 f tn Ovarian cysts are common and almost always benign especially if you do not have a family history of ovarian cancer. Unfortunately, far too many women lose an ovary or ovaries for benign ovarian cysts causing permanent health problems and reduced quality of life.

621010 tn?1221508226 I go to to my GI and he tells me that I need to go to a gyn-oncologist, because I have ovarian cysts. I had a transvaginal ultrasound today, and the tech, said it looked like grapes. That scares me. I am wondering if that is a normal sounding cyst?
Avatar f tn When the follicles are forming small cysts may be present in the normal ovary. These ovarian cysts which start during the normal function of menstrual cycle are called functional cysts which are of two types follicular cyst and corpus luteal cyst. Most of these cysts are harmless and disappear over a period of time. They are usually asymptomatic. In few patients cysts may cause menstrual irregularities, pelvic pain. In such cases medical help should be sought.
564029 tn?1216423219 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 cysts can cause ovarian enlargement and the majority of ovarian cysts are benign. Did you have a scan to determine if you have visible cysts? Most cysts go away on their own. If this persists for you, you may want to talk to you doctor about the possibility of your having an underlying condition like PCOS or endometriosis. But, even with these conditions, the majority of women are still able to conceive.
700067 tn?1332989283 I am also very very tired all the time. I’ve been having pelvic pain as well and an ultrasound showed some cysts, although the doc was not worried and said they were normal. Three weeks ago, I was driving home from work and started feeling a pain in my abdomen. It was in the lower right ride, but several inches above my pelvis. I laid down when I got home and a few hours later I woke up screaming in pain. The pain was seriously worse than childbirth.
