I have 13x10x11 CM simple fluid filled ovarian cyst, normal ca-125 result i dont want to remove my ovary how can i save it?  is laparoscopy better?

Could be: I have removed many cysts like this laparoscopically while saving the ovary, but the size you give (13 cm?) is concerning. It is safe to remove this and conserve the ovary if the concern for malignancy is low; you need to discuss this with your doctor/surgeon and good luck. ...Read more

Ask your Doc: Your doc should be able to refer you to the appropriate gyn or simply ask the gyn-onc you saw. It's also possible that your cyst is functional (normal) & will resolve on it's own (no surgery). If it persists or develops concerning features, a laparoscopic cystectomy (remove the cyst only) will preserve your ovary. They may suppress your ovulation with ocps if you are a good candidate, take care. ...Read more

I had a 27cm ovarian cyst filled with reddish brown fluid.  What causes a cyst fill with fluid opposed to tissue?  What's the difference in symptoms?

Cyst: A cyst by definition is a fluid filled sac. In the ovary you can have solid tumors (benign and cancerous), mixed solid and cystic and just cystic (fluid filled). Each growth is a tissue type, which is the key to what type you get. You probably had a serous (fluid type) cystadenoma or an endometrioma (bloody fluid filled cyst) ...Read more

Ovarian cysts: There are possible complications such as torsion (up to 15%) and rupture of the cyst and obstruction of labor in pregnant patients. Usually, painful cysts greater than 6 cm are removed via laparoscopy with minimal incisions. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/255865-overview#aw2aab6b2b8 ...Read more

Small septated cyst: Cysts that small are frequently part of normal ovulation. A cyst is simply a fluid filled sac on the ovary. A septated cyst means that there is a tissue wall dividing the cyst into at least two parts. A small septated cyst can still be normal but sometimes the ultrasound is repeated to make sure that it goes away as most do. The other things mentioned are normal. Best Wishes! ...Read more
