How does a biopsy of an ovarian cyst happen?

How does a biopsy of an ovarian cyst happen?

Usually not: Usually biopsies are not performed on the ovary. Rather if there is a cyst or mass that is suspicious, it will usually be removed entirely, either with or without the rest of the ovary. However not all cysts need to be removed. Sometimes a cyst can be a normal finding. ...Read more

I have to keep being monitored for left ovarian cyst and thickened endometrium. I cannot take the pain of endometrial biopsies. First 2 were normal?

I have to keep being monitored for left ovarian cyst and thickened endometrium. I cannot take the pain of endometrial biopsies. First 2 were normal?

There are options: I would need much more information to discuss your specific situation. Generally, if the cyst and endometrium are stable they can be followed with sonography (ultrasounds) , and a D&C and hysteroscopy can always be done under anesthesia if there is that much concern. ...Read more

Just had laproscopic removal of 5cm complex ovarian cyst, L. Biopsy of both ovaries (unplanned) as R looked 'unusual'. What could causes for this be?

You nee to find out: from your doctor , exact tissue diagnosis ( pathology ) Is it a benign cyst , or malignant cyst and the type . There nothing like ' R looked unusual ' It is not pathological diagnosis . You have to wait for the final report , some times takes few days to complete special stains and interpret . Good Luck ...Read more

5 days ago i had an ovarian cyst removed...Biopsy results are not available yet. Hypoglycemia is out of control. Thoughts?

5 days ago i had an ovarian cyst removed...Biopsy results are not available yet.  Hypoglycemia is out of control.  Thoughts?

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst that won't go away... I had 3 transvaginal ultrasounds .. Now the dr says it's normal... I had an abnormal endometrial biopsy?

Likely benign cyst: If the cyst appears benign (without septation or nodules) and has been stable over a reasonable time frame, it likely is benign. This is not related to endometrial problems. ...Read more

There : There are many things to consider here. One is your age, also do you have children? What was your doctor's recommendation? Have you seen a gyn/oncologist? If not you should do so for a different opinion/perspective. Honestly i can't make a recommendation based on the limited info. I have, therefore i encourage you to get a second opinion. I hope other doctor's here on avvo.Com can lend their opinion as well. Good luck. ...Read more
