Adenomyosis-3 cysts-one of which is huge are there alternatives outside menopause and hysterectomy?

Not Usually: If you truly have adenomyosis and it is large then there are not good options. Medical therapy is inconsistent and worth trying but often not very effective. Surgery in the form of removing the uterus is really the only proven therapy. Now if you have endometriosis there are multiple options. So it is important to get the best sense of what you have. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired.

Can adenomyosis and ovarian cyst cause each other to feel worse?

Can adenomyosis and ovarian cyst cause each other to feel worse?

Adenolyosis: Adenomyosis is an invasion of uterine muscle with cells which line the uterus: these cells will bleed at the onset of both ovulation (briefly) and your regular cycle. Adenomyosis is similar to endometriosis, and causes cramping and discomfort. An ovarian cyst stretches the capsule of the ovary and will cause one sided pain while it exists. Most will spontaniously break, unrelated to adenomyosis. ...Read more

I'm 48yr Diagnosed w/PATSS,  Adenomyosis & 2 large complex cysts on left ovary. I'm having horrific monthly pain. Is hysterectomy only option? Help.

No: There are always more than one option and even more than I can list here. Assuming your diagnosis is correct the options include: 1. Observation and management of pain. Await menopause 2. Medically induced menopause 3. Surgical removal of involved tubes and left ovary 4. Surgical removal of both tubes and ovaries 5. Hysterectomy:removal of uterus, tubes and ovaries. Always get a second opinion ...Read more

Have had 4 full periods in the last 8 weeks. Complex cyst in 1 ovary, endometriosis, adenomyosis.Can cervical problems cause periods to come earlier?

Have had 4 full periods in the last 8 weeks. Complex cyst in 1 ovary, endometriosis, adenomyosis.Can cervical problems cause periods to come earlier?

No, see doctor: The cervix doesn't really have a role in period bleeding or abnormal bleeding - that comes from uterine issues like fibroids or adenomyosis, or hormonal causes. The cervix can bleed from trauma or lesions in the cervix or cervical cancer, but it is not period bleeding. If you have had 4 episodes of bleeding in 8 weeks, you need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment options. ...Read more

Adenomyosis: Adenomyosis is when tissue just like the uterine lining grows into the wall of the uterus. Fibroids are smooth muscle tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus. Both conditions are common and can cause bleeding abnormalities, pain and other gyn issues. Ultrasound can tell more about these problems. ...Read more

What causes a cystic lining in the uterine wall? One dr said its pcos & another said it was adenomyosis. Are either accurate? Do i need a 3rd opinion?

What causes a cystic lining in the uterine wall? One dr said its pcos & another said it was adenomyosis. Are either accurate? Do i need a 3rd opinion?

Depends: The lining of the uterus is increased/thickened by estrogen. Pcos is a condition where pt's produce too much estrogen, and the lining can become overthickened causing heavy/irreg periods. Adenomyosis is more common in women who have had csections or are a little older. A cystic lining is concerning, and should be evaluated with biopsy or d;c to make sure there are no precancerous changes. ...Read more

What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

What does a "solitary cyst in the left kidney" and a "solitary enlarged uterus with focal adenomyosis" mean?

Ultrasound or MRI?: Usually nothing if you have no abnormal bleeding or pain. An enlarged uterus can be normal after childbirth (dimensions?), and adenomyosis is simply endometrium (uterine lining) growing into the muscular layer (also called endometriosis interna). Both may be normal for you & can be followed by ultrasound along with your renal cyst. See your doc if you are having problems & good luck. ...Read more
