Doctor insights on: Do Septations In A Complex Ovarian Cyst Indicate Cancer

Share

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

I have a complex ovarian cyst that will not go away and it is very painful could it be cancer?

I have a complex ovarian cyst that will not go away and it is very painful could it be cancer?

Maybe: most likely it is a benign cyst. Cancer risk increases in cystic ovaries in Women over 60. However a complex system of the ovary can't be associated with cancer and a 37-year-old female. The only way to know for sure is to have it ultrasound and possibly biopsied. You can also look at the Ca 125 serum protein levels.again though it is very common to have benign cyst in the ovary in a 37-year. ...Read more

Cancer? 12cm complex ovarian cyst/tumor with blood flow throughout septations. And elevated 5.7 ova 1 test. Can't see oncologist for 3 weeks. Worried

No emergency: The OVA1® test is not an indicator of ovarian cancer and is not much better than Ca125. It measures levels of five proteins found in the blood and then uses software to calculate a single score measured by using a 0-10 scale.. Women who are pre-menopausal have a cut off of 5.0 whereas postmenopausal women have a 4.4 cutoff. A high OVA1® score is not a diagnosis of cancer, rather it indicates risk and should not force an emergency situation for treating a complex hemorrhagic cyst ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed with 3cm complex ovarian cyst via ultrasound. Advised to wait 6 weeks to recheck. Safe to wait even with a family history of female cancers?

Diagnosed with 3cm complex ovarian cyst via ultrasound. Advised to wait 6 weeks to recheck. Safe to wait even with a family history of female cancers?

Probablyl: Depending on the appearance of the cyst, your doctor must have felt that it was safe. Not all female cancers are genetically related (so, for ex: if you family has a history of cervical cancer that does not increase the risk for ovarian cancer). The ova-1 test or ca-125 tests can help to see if your cyst is higher or lower risk to be a cancer. But there are lots of cysts that are not cancers. ...Read more

2x us over 6 weeks shows complex ovarian cyst with septated internal echoes. Grown 8mm in 6 wks. Now at 59mm. Blood cancer markers neg. What is likely?

2x us over 6 weeks shows complex ovarian cyst with septated internal echoes. Grown 8mm in 6 wks. Now at 59mm. Blood cancer markers neg. What is likely?

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

I'm pregnant and have complex ovarian cyst, was told I may have to remove it in case it's its cancerous. IS this safe for baby? Can it be cancer?

I'm pregnant and have complex ovarian cyst, was told I may have to remove it in case it's its cancerous. IS this safe for baby? Can it be cancer?

Could be cancer.: It is not likely to be risk to baby. Any ovarian mass or complex cyst can be cancer. Such lesions should be evaluated until exact cause is known. Sometimes need to biopsy or remove. ...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

Excessive gas for past 2 months. 2.8 CM complex ovarian cyst. How likely is it that this is ovarian cancer? Could IBS come on this suddenly?

Excessive gas for past 2 months.  2.8 CM complex ovarian cyst. How likely is it that this is ovarian cancer?  Could IBS come on this suddenly?

Unlikely: Those findings not cosistantly with cancer. Cyst small and u are young. Try MiraLAX 1 dose in juice per day along with probiotics, ibs is a syndrome of alternating constipation and diarrhea, affected by anxiety, and, at times a major problem. It's not likely that. You should be fine! don't worry too much. ...Read more
