Cyst (Definition)

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

Need Fertility Exam: I would refer you to a fertility specialist. Certainly a complex ovarian cyst can be secondary to endometriosis which can adversely affect fertility. Ovarian cyst resulting from polycystic ovary syndrome – a constellation of small cysts in the ovaries, irregular periods, elevated androgens – can contribute to fertility problems. A fertility exam is required for specific answers. ...Read more

Low degree of concer: Most common cause of such benign cysts are functional cysts that are very common in reproductive age females. Unless, presenting with symptoms (pain, nausea, vomiting, fever etc), your physician may opt to follow them with a repeat us in 3-6 months. Unless you have strong family hx of cancer, or personal hx of cancer, there is a low level of suspicion for ovarian cancer. ...Read more

Please explain 20ml complex ovarian cyst containing internal echoes measuring 3.3 x 2.2 x 3cm also containing focal hyperechoic densities ?

Fibrin in cyst: Ovarian cysts frequently will have stuff inside. When they do not, it is a simple cyst. When there is bleeding in to the cyst, they become complex. This causes all kinds of findings on ultrasound . Blood clots look like clumps and fibrin can cause stranding . All usually clear up ...Read more

Painful?: It looks like you have a GYN who is doing all of the right tests. So what does she/he recommend? In my practice, I recommend surgery for cysts this size that are painful. Cysts that are not can get serial ultrasounds. Most of my patients with cysts this size have opted for surgery since pain from these masses can escalate if they enlarge. Good luck to you in lovely Australia. ...Read more

Deep breath: Take a deep breath, no need to panic yet. It is 100% appropriate to follow a 62 Y.O. W/ a complex cyst, some turn out to be cancers but many do not. Follow-up ultrasound is critical, but may turn out to be nothing. Blood testing tumor markers is sometimes helpful but not always, and should only be done with a doctor who understands markers and what they mean. Please don't panic and best wishes! ...Read more

Ultrasound says complex ovarian cyst, septated, internal echos and avascular. Says could be possible haemorrhagic cyst but i'm worried of cancer?

Ultrasound says complex ovarian cyst, septated, internal echos and avascular. Says could be possible haemorrhagic cyst but i'm worried of cancer?

Follow-up required: In a patient of your age, it is likely self-limited and very well could represent a hemorrhagic cyst. However, a repeat ultrasound 6 weeks following the first is suggested to document resolution or decrease in size and to re-evaluate for patency of the ovarian artery. ...Read more

Pelvic pain, low progesterone levels, ovarian cysts, what is wrong with me?

Pelvic pain, low progesterone levels, ovarian cysts, what is wrong with me?

Hard to say..: These may not be related to each other. Many things can cause pelvic pain, if you have large ovarian cysts (>4cm) they may be the cause, but smaller ones less likely to cause pain.Low prog levels (&small ov cysts) are both normal during certain phases of menstrual cycle. But low prog can cause mood sx, anxiety, sleep disturbances. If you have these natural Progesterone tx may help. ...Read more
