Brown Discharge when I wipe - I was just told from my doctor that I have a ovarian cyst, I didnt have the discharge when I seen him and now I do. I also had an ultrasound but the one that goes on the inside... Could this have anything to do with it? I am
Probably related: Brown discharge is often due to a little bit of dried blood. If an ovarian cyst becomes large it can rupture and cause a leakage of blood or other fluid. A vaginal ultrasound can potentially cause a very small of amount of bleeding could also be the cause of the discharge. It could be related to one or both, and is not a cause for concern. ...Read more
Can an underactive thyroid and an ovarian cyst(10cm)have anything to do with each other, also period 1 week late, could either of these be causing this?

Can complex fluid filled ovarian cysts become cancerous? Why might there be a bright ring around it on u/s then no ring on f/u u/s? Causing much pain.
Yes it can: Complex cysts can be cancerous depending on their size and rate of growth. A CA125 test can help decide its nature. Ultrasound is a good test to measure increase in size and also may show any solid components inside the cyst. You should get the ultrasound repeated in 3-4 months and have your gynecologist guide you further. You may need surgical removal if it is causing you much pain or increased s ...Read more
