Ovarian cyst dermoid or serous cystadenoma can be tested with small part for complete pathologic analysis?

Unfortunately Not: The problem with ovarian tumors is that you can have normal cell types adjacent to borderline or malignant cells. The ovary is notorious for hiding cancer cells which is why it's impossible to "eyeball" or sample an ovary and get a complete diagnosis. That's why often the ovary is completely removed if malignancy is suspected. Cancer can also increase in stage if spillage occurs so it's not easy. ...Read more

Excision: Danna, there is no way to know if it's a benign, serous cystadenoma until it is surgically removed and examined by a pathologist. Benign serous cystadenoma is a pathological diagnosis that cannot be made while the ovary is left inside. If the tumor is removed in an intact ovary, and this is the diagnosis, there is no cancer. ...Read more

Where is it?: Assuming this is an ovarian cystadenoma, and it was found because you were having pain, then it should come out.

If it is pancreatic, and the diagnosis comes from a CT or MRI, then your physician may elect to follow it for a while and recheck. All depends. ...Read more
