I had a total hysterectomy 3 weeks ago for early stage endometrial cancer, the surgeon also found an ovarian cyst. Is this likely to be cancerous?

Possible: It's certainly possible that your cyst is malignant but not likely. The vast majority of ovarian cysts are benign. If you had the cyst removed, a pathology report would have been generated and will have the information you seek. Best of luck. ...Read more

The rest of. ....: Your life! Thirrty-one is very young to have your ovaries removed and you will need hormone replacement therapy, likely, for your entire life in order to prevent bone thinning and, probably, heart disease. The symptoms of ovarian deficiency would be most severe right now, but you are 20 years away from natural menopause. Even if symptoms improve you will still be in menopause. Good wishes:) ...Read more

I have endometriosis and fibroid tumors (occasionally ovarian cysts). OB recommend hysterectomy. Read about Acessa. Wondering: procedure any good?

I have endometriosis and fibroid tumors (occasionally ovarian cysts). OB recommend hysterectomy. Read about Acessa. Wondering: procedure any good?

Perhaps not for you: Acessa is a novel, fairly good and very promising procedure for treating uterine fibroids and preserve the uterus. Its success depends often on the size, location and number of fibroids in a uterus. It is not a treatment for endometriosis. Hysterectomy laparoscopic, transabdominal or transvaginal at this point in your life may not be a bad recommendation, particularly if you are very symptomatic ...Read more

Hi.......I have a 3.8 cm hemorrhagic right ovarian cyst. I will be 50 yrs old and not menopausal. Had a hysterectomy 10 yrs ago. What should I do?

I have been experiencing shooting vaginal pains for three days. I'm 64, radical hysterectomy in 1983, one ovary saved. Could this be an ovarian cyst?

I have been experiencing shooting vaginal pains for three days. I'm 64, radical hysterectomy in 1983, one ovary saved. Could this be an ovarian cyst?

Broad differential.: The differential diagnosis is broad. The cause of your pain could indeed be ovarian in etiology. However, it is not uncommon for other disease processes (such as kidney stones) to refer to groin area as well. More history, exam, and possible imaging studies may be needed to give you a good answer. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I've had ovarian cysts and painful bursts almost every month for years. Even more often since my partial hysterectomy February 2013. Help.

OCPs or surgery: You could take OCPs to suppress ovulation, as that's when these cysts usually start. The other option would be to have one or both ovaries removed, which can be done laparoscopically. However, if both ovaries are removed, you will need to take hormone replacement, especially at your age. ...Read more

I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

No: Not unless it is causing bad symptoms or has features worrisome for cancer. Cancer is unlikely since your surgeon just looked at the ovary 3 mo ago. The cyst should be followed with periodic ultrasounds to make sure it resolves and does not develop worrisome features. ...Read more

Need eval by Gyn onc: It would be wise to have a pelvic ultrasound, consult a Gyn oncologist and have your ovarian cyst evaluated further. Ultimately, either exploratory laparoscopic surgery or laparotomic oophorectomy may be needed to make a definitive diagnosis. Unfortunately there is no other accurate and reliable way to reassure you that your ovarian cyst is benign, even though most ovarian cysts are. ...Read more

I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but I've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

It is also important to know what's the cause of the pain to know if a hysterectomy would help. Also knowing the cause would determine if the ovaries need to be removed - a full hysterectomy. ...Read more
