Can Ovarian Cysts Produce Hcg
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. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Is the hCG diet safe? I bought drops but am scared of side effects. I have ovarian cysts and heard hCG can turn them cancerous? Is this true?
It's silly stuff: The 'hcg diet' is an 800-calorie severely restrictive diet and this is why you lose weight. The overpriced placebo that is tacked on will probably do nothing. Further, HCG does not turn ovarian cysts cancerous. Why not take the money and join a fitness club, make friends, and embark on a far happier and less fear-darkened life? Cheers. ...Read more
How does hCG level increase in casw of ovarian cyst or tumors. Or in case of molar or tub pregnancy?
My ovarian cyst has ruptured I now have some bleeding and my hCG levels has dropped 6241 to 1177 can the cyst do this I am 7wks pregnant?
Maybe: The most concerning thing is the drop in hormone level at 7 weeks of pregnancy. This combined with your bleeding sounds like a miscarriage. A ruptured ovarian cyst could make you bleed inside your pelvis, but the vaginal bleeding is likely coming from inside the uterus. A pelvic exam and ultrasound would be the most helpful in figuring out what is going on. ...Read more
My last period oct18, finished taking Duphaston 10days ago, negative hCG urine test, no ovarian cyst, today dec17 and no period, what can it be?
No menses: If you do not have bleeding after Progesterone withdrawal, there can be several causes. 1) pregnant and too early to check urine 2) the lining of the endometrium is too thin to get a bleed (called a silent period by some) 3) something blocking the cervix (doubtful because last month regular period). See your doctor. ...Read more

Just been told I have 7cm ovarian cyst with nodules behind uterusI need ca125, hcg, afp, ldh tests and surgery Should I worry? Also itchy groin lymphnod
I've just been told I have a 7cm ovarian cyst with nodules sitting behind uterus. I need ca125, hcg, afp, ldh tests and surgery. Should I be worried?
Your doctor will gui:
The doctor who has ordered your tests suspects that you might have Cancer of the Ovary showing as a Cyst. But we need to have all the tests done, particularly CA125 before we can get any certain idea. A high
CA -125 level is common in most cases with cancer of the ovary. But it can sometimes be high for other benign conditions but the elevation is more modest in those other conditions. ...Read more
HCG @ 940 on9/11. Unsure of how far I am. US yesterday showed no uterine sac, but fibourus cyst on ovary. Ovarian Ectopic or just too early for sac??
940 = early: If you don't know how far along you are, it is hard to determine what would be expected to be found on US. An Hcg level of 940 suggests that you are very early in the pregnancy. The best plan is to ask your OB - the one who knows your case well! - about your concerns and learn what they are thinking. Be sure to follow up as they recommend and contact them if you are having any pain or bleeding. ...Read more
Time: Most ovarian cysts go away by themselves over time. If a cyst stays around for more than 3 months, what we would do next depends on it's size, your age, any symptoms and very specific details of the ultrasound report describing the cyst. ...Read more
Depends on the cyst: Some cysts (small simple follicular) don't need any help and resolve on their own. Large symptomatic cysts most likely will require surgical intevention. There are some cysts that resolve with hormonal treatment. ...Read more
Ultrasound: Ovarian cysts are best evaluated by transvaginal ultrasound. If you are young and have periods, most cysts are ok, though they may grow large and rupture and cause pain. If you have gone through menopause, ovarian cysts need to be followed more closely, since they may be cancer. Pelvic MRI is helpful in evaluating persistent cysts or cysts which may partially contain solid tissue. ...Read more
Complex question: This depends on many details: your medical history, your family history, features seen on ultrasound like size, solid areas, blood flow. Most cysts at age 44 if you are still having menstrual cycles will be benign, but you should follow up with your gynecologist as directed to be sure. ...Read more
Patience vs. Surgery:
Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks. Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences.
If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer. ...Read more
Ovarian Cyst: Cysts may be asymptomatic for the most part and only discovered during a routine gyn examination. Occasionally they may present as a vague to severe abdominal pain. Some malignant ovarian cysts may also present as a gastric disturbance like bloating, eructations, dyspepsia. ...Read more
