What could be the cause of anemia in a 28 week old fetus, along with blood filled placental cysts?

What could be the cause of anemia in a 28 week old fetus, along with blood filled placental cysts?

Really?: Family doc here, just would maybe like to help you tho I'm not certain I can. Fetal anemia? ...they test for that? ....I must be behind in my peds smarts, but I only see ages 2 and above. I figure if the fetus has anemia and your circulation is shared via placenta, then you have anemia. Or these placental blood filled cysts are causing an anemia. You need to have a better talk w/whomever said this ...Read more

I have a blood filled ovarian cyst and IV just missed a period. What could be rong, could the cyst be getting worse?

I have a blood filled ovarian cyst and IV just missed a period. What could be rong, could the cyst be getting worse?

Possibly: I assume you were told about the cyst after having an ultrasound or ct scan. The most common cause of a missed period in a female of childbearing age is pregnancy. You should probably take a pregnancy test first. If that is negative you can move on to a thorough work-up with the gynecologist who ordered the imaging study. Be well. ...Read more

Can an 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst cause or make haemorrhoids & uterine prolapse reoccur or is it just coincidental

Can an 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst cause or make haemorrhoids & uterine prolapse reoccur or is it just coincidental

Gyn exam needed: A 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst is not likely to "cause or make hemorrhoids and pelvic prolapse worse." It would be wise to consult a gynecologist to have a careful evaluation of the ovarian cyst particularly, (diagnosis is needed and treatment /removal may be necessary) of the pelvic prolapse and of the hemorrhoids as well. ...Read more

Should I be worried about blood cysts? I keep noticing what I think would be best described as small blood cysts (blood filled pockets of skin) that generally pop easily (usually just by a little pressure from my finger, though they've been getting more d

Should I be worried about blood cysts? I keep noticing what I think would be best described as small blood cysts (blood filled pockets of skin) that generally pop easily (usually just by a little pressure from my finger, though they've been getting more d

I: I think it would be worth visiting your doctor to discuss this. One condition that can cause little "blood cysts" is thrombocytopenic pupura, which is caused by an abnormally low platelet count. If that's what's going on, then it would be important to know because it would put you at risk for major hemorrhages and because it could reflect other health problems. ...Read more

I have a ovarian cyst filled with blood and am very scared. How serious are they?

I have a ovarian cyst filled with blood and am very scared. How serious are they?

Usually not serious: It's very common to form ovarian cysts. Sometimes the fluid inside is clear (simple cyst) or the cyst is filled with blood (hemorrhagic cyst). For the most part, they are not dangerous at all. They resolve over time usually. If a hemorrhagic cyst is very big (5cm or more) it can cause discomfort/pain or lead to other bad outcomes (ovarian torsion) which is rare. Cysts rarely require surgery. ...Read more

I am a female and get large cysts around my genitals and inner thighs. They are blood or puss filled. How can I prevent or treat them? Some r painful.

Drain and culture: These are not uncommon. Often time they need to be drained and cultured to determine exactly what is causing this.

Can nodular cystic acne be treated by laser or light therapy. I hv acne filled with pus n blood and wish to get rid over it through laser. Possible?

This is serious: I'm glad you're on isotretinoin and this is appropriate for a woman in your situation. Hopefully you'll get a good result. Other meds that may help if you relapse include spironolactone and the oral contraceptive pill. Lasers may be an adjunct for you.

Ovarian Cyst: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts are quite common. Many produce no symptoms at all, but others may cause pain in mid-cycle, especially if they rupture.

Can ovarin cysts cause blood in feces?

Can ovarin cysts cause blood in feces?

No: This would be unlikely. Ovarian cysts are their own thing. One caveat, some women with severe endometriosis (uterine tissue that is not in the uterus but still cycles and bleeds each month) can have tissue in the rectum that bleeds too. That is not something to guess about though. You may need a colonoscopy to sort this out. Don't wait to go in and get checked by your doctor. ...Read more

Is it safe or normal for a cyst to fill with blood during ovulation?

Is it safe or normal for a cyst to fill with blood during ovulation?

Corpus luteum cyst: After ovulation a structure forms called the corpus luteum. On occasion, the corpus luteum fills with fluid and becomes a "cyst". If the cyst fills with blood, it's called a hemorrhagic corpus luteum, and these are not uncommon. Rarely they can persist, rupture, twist on their blood supply, or cause other problems, but they typically resolve by the time menstruation occurs. ...Read more

See a gynecologist: Hi, did you have it drained (scalpel to the cyst) and a word catheter placed in? The cyst is not supposed to persist after drainage and 3-4 weeks of word catheter placement. If so, it's time for excision or other procedures. See you gynecology for another exam. ...Read more
