Postmenopausal laparoscopic oophorectomy dermoid cyst?

Postmenopausal laparoscopic oophorectomy dermoid cyst?

For postmenopausal:: I would recommend oophorectomy in a postmenopausal patient, due to the (small, but possible) risk of a malignancy. While the most common type of dermoids are benign, they can be some that are malignant, and in a menopausal female i would recommend oophorectomy instead of cystectomy, to ensure that the tumor is removed entirely. For a premenopausal patient i would recommend cystectomy. ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more

Do benign intraductal papillomas need removal?

Do benign intraductal papillomas need removal?

Maybe, maybe not: If the tumor is benign then it might not need to come out. However, if it's in there long enough, it might start to cause problems like blocking the ducts to your mammary glands. Also, just because it's benign today doesn't mean it won't transform at some point. It might be worth having it out, if it's simple and easy to do. See your local surgeon for more ideas. ...Read more

Post menopausal. Have 9mm thickened uterine lining that biopsy said is benign. No bleeding. Is hysterectomy a radical treatment for this condition?

Post menopausal. Have 9mm thickened uterine lining  that biopsy said is benign. No bleeding. Is hysterectomy a radical treatment for this condition?

Yes: An incidental finding of a slightly thickened uterine lining is not a major emergency. It sounds like your doctor has carefully evaluated you and not found a problem. Unless there is more to the story that I don't know, a hysterectomy seems like a bit of an overkill--like cutting a tomato with a chain-saw when a paring knife would do. Best wishes! ...Read more
