I had a CA-125 done for ovarian cysts (10.5cm and 4cm) Test came back 190. Had another test weeks later and new u/s. Cyst is now 8.4 and CA-125 is 110. Is this even possible? Cysts are hypoechoic cystic lesions possibly endometriomas & endometriosis.

CA-125 testing: CA- 125 testing is notoriously inaccurate when it comes to testing for ovarian cancer especially when endometriosis is a part of the equation. IF there is continued concern most MD's will take a "look/see" with the laparoscope and confirm a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst. Thanks

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst. Thanks

Yes: It can. It would be helpful to know your age and history to comment further. Septated cysts are also a malignancy risk but there are septated benign tumors too. Do you mean 27 cm or 27 mm? The smaller one 27 mm is fairly low risk regardless; if you mean the larger (27 cm) the risk is correspondingly higher. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more

2 months ago gyn felt adnexal mass. U.S showed ovarian cyst. Now I'm having pelvic pain along with urinary frequency, urgency. What to do next?

UTI?: You may have a urinary tract infection. Call your pcp/gyn so you can leave a urine, that can be sent for a test to determine f you have a uti. Until then, increase your water intake. You can also buy an over the counter med, called uristat, (phenazopyridine) that helps with urinary pain assoc. With utis. This med should only be used for 2 days. If your pelvic pain is severe, see a doc immediately. ...Read more

I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. May reflect a large endometrioma. Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?

I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. May reflect a large endometrioma. Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?

Need firm dx: MRI can be helpful to firm up the diagnosis of endometrioma and be an adjunct to ultrasound. MRI may find other lesions.
On the other hand laparoscopy has the advantage of getting tissue and performing therapeutics. A small amount of free fluid is non-specific and not unexpected for a cystic lesion of that size.
Decisions as to how to proceed require clinical correlation and advice of GYN. ...Read more

R sided hemm. Ovarian cyst 46.6mmx41.9x45.9 volume 46.9ml. History endoand decreased ov reserve n/v, pain how long does it take to absorb? Waiting to do ivf

It may not absorb: If it is truly a hemorrhagic cyst it should resolve in 4-6 weeks if not sooner. If it is an endometrioma, it may not resolve on its own and may require surgery to improve your ivf outcome. I recommend you talk to your reproductive endocrinologist about strategy here. You don't want to lose time if you have diminished ovarian reserve. ...Read more

Doc said I hv an ovarian cyst measuring abt 7x6x5 n need surgery. But is it possible if I don't want surgery? Cz im quite busy atm

You need surgery: You have a large cyst. Most cyst at your age are benign. However they can become very large and depending on the surgeon you my end up with a huge scar. Also cyst this size can twist on its pedicle (torsion). This is a surgical emergency. You might have a serous or mucinous-cysadenoma, or a dermoid cyst. Ultrasound should help to give clue what he is dealing with. I would favor laparoscopic surger. ...Read more

Can ovarian cyst be treated n how?

Can ovarian cyst be treated n how?

Patience vs. Surgery: Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks. Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences.
If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer. ...Read more

How can I deal with ovarian cyst pain?

How can I deal with ovarian cyst pain?

Ibuprofen: Ibuprofen would be my first recommendation for the occasional ovarian / ovarian cyst pain. If you have discomfort every month, birth control will keep the cysts under control, therefore minimizing any ovarian pain. Occasionally, a large cyst may leak or rupture causing severe pain. Most the time, this is still managed with prescription pain medicine and will resolve over a few days. ...Read more
