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

What causes ovarian dermoid cysts?

What causes ovarian dermoid cysts?

Not known!: Hello, we don't know why ovaries make their cysts. Seems that they are a very active organ, what with making eggs and hormones, and sometimes the egg-making cells just overgrow and become a dermoid cyst, complete with hair, skin, and other cells that the 'germ cell' (egg producing cell) has in it's potential. Wierd, huh! they are benign, but don't go away without surgery, and can be recurrent. ...Read more

Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more

4cm complex ovarian cyst. Mri can't ruleout neoplasm. Hysterectomy in apr. Age 37. Horrible pain, bloating, urinary incont. Bowel changes. Surgery?

May have to remove i: Complex ovarian cysts require closer monitoring and consideration of removal if they grow in size. The size is still not big enough to chase it and remove it right now. But an interval re-evaluation in 2-3 months will help to determine if it is increasing in size or not. If it grows over 6 months and the size is bigger than 6-7 cm, i would recommend surgical removal. But also get a ca125 level do. ...Read more

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.
