Recent discovery of bleeding cyst/endometrioma. Previous cyst drained from same ovary after hysterectomy +2 yrs. What's probability of surgery?

Try med treatments: Endometriosis (in ovaries or in the pelvic-abdominal cavity) can be very difficult to treat medically and even by surgically removing both ovaries. Draining an endometrioma/bleeding cyst may only provide temporary relief but no cure. Ask your Gyn if medical trials with GnRH drugs, progestins or other medications would be valuable before (or to avoid) returning to the operating room again.

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

Postmenopausal woman has complex ovar cyst. If need ovary removed should I have a hysterectomy due to my age of 59 gynoncologist stated ca risk is low?

Postmenopausal woman has complex ovar cyst. If need ovary removed should I have a hysterectomy due to my age of 59 gynoncologist stated ca risk is low?

Depends: If your uterus is not causing any problems it is difficult to recommend removing it. When the ovary is the problem, certainly that should be addressed. There can be reasons to remove the uterus concurrent with other procedures, but your doctor would have to discuss that with you.

Cyst: You should know the reason before doing surgery. Small 2-3 cm cysts appears in functioning ovaries every month and disappears with ovulation. These small cysts are not painful. But there are larger and different cysts, like hemorrhagic, endometriosis that might be painful and needs to see your gyn for its management.

Adhesions: It sounds like you may have developed adhesions. Adhesions are similar to scar tissue within the body, which can make future surgery around the area very difficult. You might consider seeing your doctor to determine if there is any other medical way to treat your ovarian cysts.

What are the first signs of having cysts on your ovaries a year after a partial hysterectomy?

What are the first signs of having cysts on your ovaries a year after a partial hysterectomy?

Impossible: Your ovaries form cysts on a monthly basis that collapse with ovulation. Sometimes they DON'T collapse but even then these cysts are often asymptomatic (you can't feel them) and they wouldn't be associated with having had a hysterectomy. Any symptoms might be due to something else. If worried, see a gynecologist for an exam.

I have cyst in ovaries also have partial hysterectomy. I am in so much pain. Should I b worried?

I have cyst in ovaries also have partial hysterectomy. I am in so much pain. Should I b worried?

Depends: If the pain is intolerable then you may need to go to the ER. Otherwise let your doctor know about your symptoms. Ovarian cysts may need to be removed surgically if they are causing pain. The best management depends on the size of the cyst as well as other characteristics including pain. Hope this helps.

I have had a hysterectomy, two years later I had left ovary removed due to cyst, at removal right ovary was but now right ovary has cyst?

I have had a hysterectomy, two years later I had left ovary removed due to cyst, at removal right ovary was but now right ovary has cyst?

Not a problem: Of course you don't want both ovaries removed at age 38 as that could harm your heart and bones. Cysts at age 38 are most commonly benign and doctor can perform a "cystectomy" rather than an "oophrectomy". Remove just the cyst if it causes pain or is of concern for the doctor, and leave the rest of the ovary. Unless strong family history ovarian cancer, then ovary should be spared at all cost.

Check with: Your doctor. Not sure what you're asking. It is impossible to evaluate this problem over the internet as we don't have adequate info.

I'm 48yr Diagnosed w/PATSS, Adenomyosis & 2 large complex cysts on left ovary. I'm having horrific monthly pain. Is hysterectomy only option? Help.

I'm 48yr Diagnosed w/PATSS, Adenomyosis & 2 large complex cysts on left ovary. I'm having horrific monthly pain. Is hysterectomy only option? Help.

No: There are always more than one option and even more than I can list here. Assuming your diagnosis is correct the options include: 1. Observation and management of pain. Await menopause 2. Medically induced menopause 3. Surgical removal of involved tubes and left ovary 4. Surgical removal of both tubes and ovaries 5. Hysterectomy:removal of uterus, tubes and ovaries. Always get a second opinion

I had complete hysterectomy years ago 2nd time they say I have an left mass with cyst on it. They say it is an ovary. I have no left over piece there?

I had complete hysterectomy years ago 2nd time they say I have an left mass with cyst on it. They say it is an ovary. I have no left over piece there?

Can be: A hysterectomy is removal of the uterus but sometimes can be performed at the time of an oophorectomy (removal of ovaries). You don't need to have both done all ways and if you had a hysterectomy, I would clarify with the surgeon if the ovaries were left behind or taken out at the time of surgery. There are times when a small remnant of the ovary can be left behind but it is infrequent & uncommon

Is total hysterectomy required on complex septated ovary cysts? Right=12cm Left=5cm Fibroid=5cm

Is total hysterectomy required on complex septated ovary cysts? Right=12cm Left=5cm Fibroid=5cm

No: Episodic surgical management of both of these problems can include ovarian cystic resection/biopsy and myomectomy for the fibroid. At age 44 and finished with childbearing, hysterectomy is an option but not required.

37yr old. Hysterectomy with rt ovary removed april this year. Severe bloat, pain. 4 CM complex cyst left ovary. On crutches for si pain. Remove ovary?

Depends.: It is usually reasonable to observe a cyst like this for some period of time because frequently it will resolve without surgical treatment. If the cyst persists or you have a family history of ovarian cancer then you may need the ovary removed. Need to have a discussion with your ob/gyn about treatment options.

Had hysterectomy and right sided oophorectomy 7 months ago. Recently discovered enlarged left ovary and hemorrhagic cyst. Ovary needs to be removed?

Not usually: Usually that can be followed. It also depends on your medical and gyn history and why you had the previous surgery in the first place. But a cyst like that can usually be followed and as long as it is not causing you bad symptoms it probably does not need to be removed.

I'm a 32 year old woman and I've had a hysterectomy 5 years ago. Resently I had a cyst on my last remaining ovary and it popped. Now I'm having burning pain in that area and it hurts extremely bad to touch it where as when I had the cyst it was a stabbin

Pelvic pain=get seen: First I am sorry you are hurting. Lower abdomen pain can be due to several sources including kidney stones, appendicitis (is your pelvic pain on the right?) or ovary cyst rupture. All are very painful. Usually with a confirmed ruptured cyst, time will heal and you can take pain meds (otc tylenol/aleve) or get a prescription. A long term solution could be surgery (i don't recommend @ this time).

My right ovary was left after a hysterectomy keeps developing cysts. Tried to remove but its attached to bowel. Can the ovary be killed?

My right ovary was left after a hysterectomy keeps developing cysts. Tried to remove but its attached to bowel. Can the ovary be killed?

Try birth control: Ovaries are supposed to make cysts (follicles-that contain an egg) every month. Sometimes the cysts can grow too large or bleed when they open, causing pain. An easy way to treat this without surgery is to use birth control pills which suppress the ovaries and should help keep them from making cysts.

I have a degenerating corpus luteum cyst on ovary is this ok like not a bad one to have im 44 and have had a hysterectomy just leaving my ovarys?

I have a degenerating corpus luteum cyst on ovary is this ok like not a bad one to have im 44 and have had a hysterectomy just leaving my ovarys?

It's normal: A degenerating corpus luteum is always okay if you are still cycling; it simply means you ovulated some time before. You will continue to have CL with each cycle until menopause.

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!

Postmenopause woman with growing ova cyst everything else ok. If surgery do I need complete ovary hysterectomy removed. Have adhesions from other surg?

Postmenopause woman with growing ova cyst everything else ok. If surgery do I need complete ovary hysterectomy removed. Have adhesions from other surg?

Previous scarring: Previous surgical scar tissue (adhesions) make this a more complicated question to answer because the subject ovary may be "stuck" to other tissues like bowel, pelvic sidewall or bladder. If you don't want to return to surgery after this operation you might give consideration to hysterectomy with ovarian removal. You will need a very competent surgeon to undertake this operation- interview wisely
