Can Ovarian Cancer Cause A Miscarriage
Unlikely: Endometriosis can interfere with ovulation and therefore make getting pregnant more difficult but is unlikely to interfere with preganancy once established. HOWEVER the hormonal increases with pregnancy can make endometriosis symptoms worse. Suggest you consult your OB-GYN physician. ...Read more
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Can ovarian cancer be caused by hormones like some breast cancers? I had a false-positive pregnancy test and have ovarian cancer.
Not diagnostic: The only way to diagnose either of these cancers is by biopsy. Ultrasound findings and symptoms may lead to increased suspicion and further diagnostic testing. Ultrasound in the hands of a skilled practitioner can be an important screening tool. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Some patients have surgery to explore and/or attempt to reduce or cure symptomatic disease. Mris aren't always terribly useful for ovarian cancers but are sometimes helpful when surgery isn't a great option. The ca125 tumor marker can often be informative as well but isn't very specific to ovarian cancer and may be falsely elevated. Conservative approaches are best until the pregnancy is finished. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can breast cancer cause breast cysts to develop? I know it's rare for cancer in a cyst, but can a tumor be the cause of a simple cyst?
It's possible: A breast cancer may exist in a cyst if there is a mass in the cyst or in the wall of the cyst. A simple cyst is unlikely to be cancerous. Usually cancerous cysts are complex and may have separations within it. In any event either removal, aspiration with follow up, or repeat imaging my be needed to ensure the cyst is not cancerous. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hard to say: No good screening for ovarian cancer.Studies were done to see if transvaginal sono can detect early case of ovarian cancer in asymptomatic people- only showing that all of the cancer that were detected by the sono-are stage 3 or above. It requires high awareness from the patient, low threshold of suspicion of md, multiple modalities to detect earlier case of cancer( stage 1 or 2)-which can happen. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends.: It is notoriously hard to detect early. Pelvic ultrasound and family history along with serum ca-125 are some approaches to early detection that have not been particularly effective. Current research is aiming at identifying a serum proteomic signature of early ovarian cancer that can be clinically useful. ...Read more
Sometimes: During laparoscopy the surgeon is able to directly visualize the pelvic organs. Sometimes a malignant tumor is obvious just by looking. In other cases the cancer is microscopic so to make the diagnosis the organ or part of it must be removed so that the tissue can be examined under a microscope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
