Cyst Papillary Excrescence
Can doctore see inside a cyst papillary excrescences during surgary if cyst rupture or can only a pathologist see?
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
Yes: Very suspicious especially if the cyst is thick-walled, has multiple septations, or increased vascular flow on doppler ultrasound. You need to see your gyn specialist to review your risk factors & most likely, you will need at a minimum laparoscopic surgery to get a final diagnosis. Good luck & take care. ...Read more
Complex Cyst: The cyst has finger like extensions of tissue protruding into the cyst. Such a description indicates the cyst is not simple and as such needs to be followed. Usual course of action is to repeat the ultrasound just after the end of your next period. If it is gone then it was a complex cyclic cyst. If it persists it may need to be evaluated with laparoscopy to r/o neoplasm, endometriosis, etc. ...Read more
Maybe both: It depends where that description is from, but it sounds like a gross description (not microscopic) so they are likely seen with the naked eye. Though if they are papillary to the naked eye, they will usually be under the scope too. ...Read more
No: A cyst is not solid. That's why it is called a cyst, because there is space inside which contains, or at some time had contained, material. ...Read more
33 years old, trying to get pregnant for 2 years. I had 3.5*4.0*2.6 complex ovary cyst with low level echos & papillary projections, help to understand?
Ovarian cysts: Multiple ovarian cysts of the size described can occur normally. If you are having regular periods at your age, they are not the cause of infertility. The most common cause in women is obstructed tubes. See your healthcare provider and he/she may suggest an x-ray of your tubes, which can diagnose and treat obstructed tubes: simple and best solution for most infertile causes. ...Read more
Explain what sections reveal a benign cyst lined by a cuboidal epithelium, it thrown into papillary fronds. Appearance is serous papillary cystadenoma?
Ovarian cyst (4-5cm)unilocular liquid with papillary component (2.8x1.4cm). 26yo, no family history of cancer. Waiting for markers. Odds of malignancy?
Can not calculate: We can not calculate the odds of malignancy with this information. Based on your age and the size a malignant ovarian tumor is not particularly likely even with a complex ovarian cyst with papillary components. It sounds like your doctor is testing to help rule out malignancy which is good. Keep your follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
Hello, I'm a 26 years old Italian girl diagnosed with an unilocular ovarian cyst occupying my right ovary, measuring 4.5x4.9cm, liquid-filled and with a papillary component (2.8x1.4cm, non vascular, resembling a septum though). Waiting for CA-125 and othe
See your doctor: Cyst treatment depends on location, size, and likely recurrence. Often a biopsy is done to confirm that it is benign. Options include doing nothing, reducing or removing it. Reduction is done because it is too dangerous to remove. Benign cysts can be removed for cosmetic reasons or to prevent recurrence. If it presses on a body part and causes dysfunction, then it should be excised. ...Read more
Cyst facts: A cyst is a collection of material contained within a covering of specialized cells. They can be in the skin or below it in one of the many layers of tissue. Once formed, they may be resorbed or persist. They may also become inflammed and/or infected depending on many factors. If it bothers you, then removal may be the answer. Unfortunately, there is no way to know how long any of these may take. ...Read more
Depends on where: A cyst is a pocket of fluid and can occur in many different types of tissue. If it's in or close to the skin, you can feel it. If it's deeper down you may never know, and that's ok because most never cause problems. If it does get too big and pushes on something that causes pain, then they can often be found with ultrasound, CT or MRI studies in the liver, kidneys, pancreas... almost anywhere. ...Read more
Cyst: Cyst is like balloon filed with fluid and has a thin wall. On skin it would be like blister to eye, fluctuating with touch and easy to rupture if pressure applied. 3 cm is the diameter size. On ultra sound and ct scan it would be round. Usually present on kidney, ovaries, breast, thyroid & liver. Thanks. ...Read more
U mayB feeling pulse: You didn't mention the location of your cyst, but by your history, you might be inferring an ovarian cyst. The cyst itself can be throbbing with pain. You may be actually feeling also the throbbing sensation from your femoral pulse, which is very strong and located nearby the ovary area. If the if the throbbing becomes more intense, it's best to contact your ob/gyn doctor to ask them what you should do. Similar to pelvic's cyst location. May be very close to the femoral artery. ...Read more
Basically no: Home remedies and vitamin-store pills are often surprisingly effective for a host of illnesses, but in the case of space-occupying lesion / mass, most of the time the choices are observation or surgery. One exception is the familiar, non-dangerous "ganglion cyst" of the tendons, which is said to be treated equally effectively by surgery and by a blow from one's favorite book. What type of cyst? ...Read more
