Hi, I am 33 years old. I have ovarian cyst 5 cm. My doctor said it is hemorrhagic cyst. What kida test can tell the cyst is benign? Thanks.

Repeat ultrasound: Ultrasound examination usually defines cyst of ovary as fluid filled. Sometimes echogencity of lining is suggestive of hemorrhage. Repeat ultrasound exam in few weeks with disappearance of cyst is definite evidence of benign lesion. If solid components are associated with the cyst tumor can be suspected. Then either other imaging such as mr or surgical biopsy might be performed. ...Read more

I need some information on hemorrhagic ovarian cysts. Doctor says I have one. And I'm just wondering how long it and the pain will last etc?

Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts: Haemorrhagic ovarian cysts (HOCs) usually result from haemorrhage into a corpus luteum or other functional cyst. Radiographic features are variable depending on the age of the haemorrhage. They typically resolve within eight weeks.
Patients may present with sudden-onset pelvic pain, pelvic mass, or they may be asymptomatic and the HOC is an incidental finding 4. A haemorrhagic or a ruptured ovarian cyst is the most common cause of acute pelvic pain in an afebrile, premenopausal woman presenting to the emergency room 5. They can occur during pregnancy.
HOCs typically develop as a result of ovulation. Secondary to a hormone response the stromal cells surrounding a maturing Graafian follicle become more vascular, and after the oocyte has been expelled, the Graafian follicle develops into a corpus luteum with a highly vascular and fragile granulosa layer, which ruptures easily, forming a HOC 4.
A cystic structure that does not convincingly satisfy the criteria for a benign cyst cannot be considered a cyst Differential considerations on ultrasound include:

cystic ovarian neoplasm: the most helpful feature in distinguishing ovarian neoplasms from haemorrhagic cysts are
papillary projections
nodular septa
colour Doppler flow in the cystic structure
endometrioma
typically contains uniform low level internal echoes with a hypervascular wall on Doppler ultrasound.
more often multiple
on MRI, endometrioma shows high signal in T1 and low signal in T2WIs and should be evaluated with a short interval follow-up US or MRI ...Read more

As ovarian cysts expand, the pain is lower abdomen, and aggravated by movement, bowel activity, sexual relations, etc. You might ask your gyn about oral bcp to diminish the occurrence of such cysts. ...Read more
