What treatment for painful post hysterectomy complex hemorrhagic bilateral ovarian cysts? Total of five cysts in right ovary & change in bowel habits

Ovarian Cysts: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts can develop after uterine removal, or they can represent foci of endometriosis or merely retained corpora lutein cysts that become necrotic and bleed into them. Either way, the cysts don't usually burst, but they should definitely be evaluated by your gynecologist immediately, because they can be serious or even be harboring an ovarian tumor. See your gynecologist soon. ...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. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

I have bilateral ovarian cysts. With no fluid. What does this mean?

Just ovarian cysts: Every woman of reproductive age forms cysts during her cycles--the process of ovulation forms cysts. Often these resolve/shrink, but unfortunately some don't and may enlarge resulting the "ovarian cyst" many have them and may not have symptoms. Some people have large ones and may cause pain. Some twist on themselves and cause torsion. If you concerns, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

2nd time in 3 months an U/S has shown bilateral ovarian cysts. But I thought only one ovary ovulates each month? R ovary hurts, cyst is 1cm.

Bilateral cysts: A one cm ovarian cyst is quite small and in the process of ovulation production both ovaries are stimulated and cysts sometimes forms. You are correct that ovaries generally alternate ovulation, but unless you have PCOS most cysts are benign and unilateral. ...Read more

I recently found out I have bilateral ovarian cysts. I've been in a lot of pain because of it. Is there anything I should be aware of or should check?

I recently found out I have bilateral ovarian cysts. I've been in a lot of pain because of it. Is there anything I should be aware of or should check?

Severe changes: With cysts, they make the ovary heavier and it is possible for the ovary to twist. If you have severe pain, nausea, vomiting, you might need emergency surgical care to prevent the ovaries from twisting too much, which can block the blood supply and kill off the ovary (torsion). Otherwise they can be followed or treated depending on the shape and size. ...Read more

I'm 23 years old, I knew that I have bilateral dermoid ovarian cyst of 6.2*9.00 for both, I'm afraid of not being pregnant, what should I do?

Calla doctor!: Talk with your doctor, a good obg if you don't have one, or a rei/fertility specialist. If your cysts are dermoids they will have to be removed: the sooner this is done the better chances of preserving the ovaries. Dermoids do not ever go away on their own. ...Read more

After bilateral laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal, menstrual cycles have gone from 32 days to 25. What does this mean? I 'm 30 years old.

Maybe Bad news: The thing that I would be worried about most is that the doctor removed too much normal ovarian tissue and took out a lot of your eggs. When you remove a cyst in someone who may want children in the future, you must fully separate the cyst from the normal tissue around it or it can send someone into menopause or harm their ovaries. Would see a specialist right away ti get tested ...Read more

I am sure your: Doc told u that is not serious as many women have that, if the cysts would grow which is unlikely then it could be a problems but that rarely happens if u have small functional cysts, if your periods are irregular or other problems that can often be treated with bc pills unless you are trying for pregnancy. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my wife is pregnant with bilateral ovarian cyst. Can the cysts be removed during c-section?

Yes: Cysts are relatively common in pregnancy and some are a normal effect of pregnancy changes. Whether or not they need to be removed is based on a number of factors like makeup and size. In many cases they can be evaluated at a c section and it can be determined then whether they should come out ...Read more

My recent diagnostic report says that I have bilateral ovarian cyst. I want to be a mother. My married life 6 years. My husband has no problems.?

Get tested: Most ovarian cysts are a result of ovulation, and over time will disappear. Some are indicators of problems with ovulation, and some are associated with problems that need more intensive treatment, like endometriosis.

Best to talk with a specialist in fertility problems to decide on treatment. An obstetrician gynecologist is a good place to start. An rei offers specialized care. ...Read more

Never had an ovarian cyst. Now I got bilateral cysts & 1 ruptured. Do I have pcos? They didn't diagnosis it & have no other pcos symptoms & norm weight

Never had an ovarian cyst. Now I got bilateral cysts & 1 ruptured. Do I have pcos? They didn't diagnosis it & have no other pcos symptoms & norm weight

Probably not: Every women, every cycle will have an ovarian cyst at least 2 centimeters in diameter at the time of ovulation - whether she knows it or not. Most women have little or no symptoms from those cysts - except for the menstrual cycle. The occasional woman who does have pain will often have an ultrasound or a ct that shows the cyst. Most of them do not require treatment. Pcos presents differently. ...Read more

Left pelvic pain, bilateral ovarian cyst R 2.8 L 2.4, Lcyst septated (CUL-DE-SAC normal. No fluid or mass)Normal Doppler and spectral limits. Meaning?

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

Need more info: Your fsh indicates you are not yet in menopause and the cysts could be worrisome. Have you done brca testing or ova1 testing for the cysts? Your doctor may be trying to be proactive and remove the ovaries prior to a potentially worse situation. No real way to accurately determine if someone has ovarian ca without pathology, only an educated guess by ultrasound and lab testing. ...Read more

I had a MRI done of pelvis it says I have bilateral ovarian cysts 2.7cm and 2.9 CM also shows I have a proximal iliac node 1.7 CM what should I do?

See a doctor.: Ovarian cysts are common. One single mildly enlarged pelvic lymph node is nonspecific. Your doctor may elect to follow up the cyst to see if they would resolve on their own over 2-3 menstrual cycles. They may come and go. See your doctor for check up of the rest of your body to see if there are other enlarged lymph nodes. ...Read more

What are bilateral ovarian cysts? I had CT scan and dr said I have these but no cause for concern. Can this affect my ability to conceive?

What are bilateral ovarian cysts? I had CT scan and dr said I have these but no cause for concern. Can this affect my ability to conceive?

It depends: More than likely you have polycystic ovaries which can be common, but may cause problems over time. You might have a higher rate of infertility, irregular cycles and other symptoms related to this finding. If the cysts enlarge that can cause other issues that your gynecologist needs to follow. Get ultrasounds instead of ct scans in the future to follow these cysts decreasing radiation exposure. ...Read more

Needs evaluation: Complex adnexal masses in postmenopausal women should be evaluated. Her doctor will need to advise if surgical removal is warranted. Family history of ovarian cancer increase risk and one should consider familial cancer screening for carrier status. BRCA 1 and 2 testing can be done. ...Read more

Relax.: Consult an obstetrician and gynecology-oncology specialist to monitor the size and content of these ovarian cysts. Most likely they will be benign and can be removed laparoscopically between 16-20 weeks. If malignant, the prognosis is more serious, but your pregnancy (i presumed it is desired) should still be able to reach viability (24 weeks) and even term (37-40 weeks) length. ...Read more

I had an abdomen/pelvis with contrast CT and it showed in the report I had small bilateral ovarian cysts noted. Is that why my periods have been crazy?

Normal finding: Ovarian cysts are very common in women of childbearing age. Most women have ovarian cysts at some time during their lives. Each month, a follicle is formed in one ovary.
At the time of ovulation, an egg is released from the follicle. Sometimes a normal follicle keeps growing resulting in a follicular cyst. If the report does not mention polycystic ovaries, you should not be concerned. ...Read more
