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.

Have abdominal pain, low back pain and nausea. Full spine MRI showed bilateral follicular ovarian cysts. Is this from that or can it be ovarian cancer?

Have abdominal pain, low back pain and nausea. Full spine MRI showed bilateral follicular ovarian cysts. Is this from that or can it be ovarian cancer?

Obgyn evaluation: Individual cases will need to be interpreted one on one. Follicular cysts are fairly common findings and although most cause no symptoms sometimes they can cause discomfort. Follicular cysts do not really look similar to ovarian cancer on MRI. You should ask the ordering physician to review the report with you and go over the specific findings.

What is left hemipelvis and are exophytic ovarian cyst anything to worry about? Also have follicular cysts both sides.

What is left hemipelvis and are exophytic ovarian cyst anything to worry about? Also have follicular cysts both sides.

Sounds normal: Sounds like you are reading a report of an ultrasound or ct scan. "left hemipelvis" means "on the left side of the pelvis, like your left ovary". Exophytic means the cyst is bulging out of the ovary (most cysts do) and follicular cyst means that you are probably about to ovulate. Nothing aboubt this sounds worrisome, but your doctor can put it into perspective based on your symptoms.

How does Duphaston work to break down a follicular ovarian cyst? How will I know if the cyst is getting smaller. Will I bleed? Follow up u/s in 3 week

How does Duphaston work to break down a follicular ovarian cyst? How will I know if the cyst is getting smaller. Will I bleed? Follow up u/s in 3 week

It doesn't: Duphaston is a progestin hormone, and is used to bring on a period in someone not ovulating or to prevent overgrowth of the uterine lining. It has also been used to treat endometriosis. Follicle cysts usually resolve over time. If it does not go away, it may need to be removed laparoscopically.

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

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.

I have a bilateral fairly large multi-separated cystic ovarian masses, right is 6.8 by 6.4cm while left is 7.3 by 7.1cm. Is surgery to only way out?

Ovarian cysts: Depending upon your age, surgery is the recommended option. You should also have a ca 125. If the ca 125 is elevated, if their is ascites, or if you have a family history of breast/ovarian cancer, you should see a gyn oncologist.

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.

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.

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.

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged.
