Cyst formation: Adenomatoid nodule - fibrotic stroma and glands ( adenoma). When adenomatoid nodule exists for a while and compresses blood vessels and surrounding tissue, hemorrhages and necrosis possible, and finally, in this place tissue degeneration with cyst formation.

If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

Autosomal recessive.: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is not sex-linked, but autosomal recessive. That means both parents can be silent carriers--totally unaware--then each passes down this recessive (inactive) gene to their child. This child develops CF because both copies of the formerly inactive gene (1 from each parent) now have no genetic "brake" (normal dominant gene) to prevent the CF gene from expressing itself. ...Read more

Both breasts show heterogeneous echopattern. No mass lesion or calcification seen.No evident ductal dilatation or skin thickening noted.Meaning?
Likely benign: Imaging of the breast is imperfect at best. Heterogeneity in the breast is a common finding typically leading to class ii or birads 2 result on the mammogram. This is almost always a benign finding and is typical of a one-year follow-up repeat mammogram. The procedure is generally very low risk with very low levels of radiation. Get a clinical breast exam from your doctor and repeat mammo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dermoid cyst: A cystic teratoma is a type of tumor that arises from egg or sperm cells, in the ovaries or testicles. Teratomas can contain undeveloped tissue or a number of different kinds of mature tissue, including fat, hair, teeth, gland and muscle. A cystic teratoma may also be described as a mature teratoma, or a dermoid cyst. It is more likely to contain well-defined types of benign tissue. ...Read more
Complex cyst: A simple cyst is a fluid filled sac. A complex cyst may have internal septations which are walls separating the cyst into different compartments. Lesion is a generic term for an abnormal growth. ...Read more

Hormonal disorder: Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. The exact cause is unknown. I am attaching a good link. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pcos/basics/symptoms/con-20028841. ...Read more
Just the name: Polycystic ovaries and polycystic kidneys are unrelated. The former is poorly-understood and probably a reaction pattern. The latter is a variable group of genetic diseases. ...Read more
Many do: Pcos often interferes with fertility to some degree but effected women can and do have kids. It makes it a bit harder for you to control the where or when if you are not sure you are ovulating at a specific time. If you just let nature figure it out and don't worry about it it can happen (if your not using birth control). ...Read more

Many things: Melanie, a complex ovarian cyst could be many things. Most likely, it is a hemorrhagic cyst (a cyst that bled). Other possibilities could be an infection, or far less likely an ovarian tumor (these are rare). I'm sure your doctor recommended follow up scans, so just follow up as they recommend. If you develop worsening or changing symptoms, call them and let them know. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Potential Ca: I assume the cyst is ovarian in origin. Such cyst are epitherlial in origin and have potential to convert to Ca. Markers such as Ca 19.9 are only of value in monitoring and not for dx. If scans show lesion enlarging and if reaching 5 cm. then resection indicated due to high rate of malignant transformation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
