Very unlikely !: Polyps in the uterus are commonly non cancerous. They can be easily removed by outpatient hysteroscopy. The tissue report (pathology) will give you the final diagnosis.

Appetite changes: Common with hormonal tides. To establish a healthy relationship with the effects of progesterone which rises after ovulation, plan your meals accordingly. Progesterone influences how women's sleep, mood and appetite. Talk to a gynecologist who is adept in treating premenstrual changes such as PMDD and sleep disturbances. I'm sorry that this physiologic event becomes the butt of sexist jokes!

Cysts are common.: Complicated means something that is a problem in medical lingo. I've seen this word misused for "complex" which means a structure with many parts. Please ask your primary care physician to have this and a previous mammogram compared. This will establish if this is to be observed or further testing is needed.
