See a physician: At 47, if you have a family history of ovarian cancer and a complex ovarian cyst yourself, you should see a physician. If the cyst is small, your physician may elect to follow it with sequential ultrasounds. Endometriosis also increases your risk slightly for a specific type of ovarian cancer. An enlarged uterus can be benign fibroids, but could also be something serious. See an md.
PCOS: Pcos is a disorder that is characterized by a combination of symptoms. These can include missed periods, abnormal hair growth (hirsutism), anovulation, and abnormal lab values like elevated testosterone. Patients usually are overweight. People with pcos are at higher risk of developing diabetes, as well as having trouble with fertility and having an increased risk of uterine cancer.See 1 more doctor answer
Primary care: I always recommend seeing your primary care first to validate your concerns. If he/she truly feel that there is a problem, he/she can treat you or send you to the appropriate specialist. S: obgyn, women's health, endocrinologists...
Hormonal, metabolic: Polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos is a condition that shows irregular periods, excessive androgens (male hormones) and metabolic disorders (type 2 or gestational diabetes, abnormal BP and lipids, fatty liver). The high androgens can cause infertility and excess hair growth. The metabolic effects are part of Insulin resistance syndrome-- which leads to heart attacks, strokes, type 2 diabetes.
PCOS: Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a condition in which a woman has an imbalance in sex hormones. People with pcos often have high androgen (male hormone), irregular or missed periods or cysts in the ovaries. Genetic plays a role in this disorder although the exact cause is unknown. Treatment options are weight loss, birth control pills, metformin (diabetes pill), fertility meds, antiandrogen pills.
Genetic + lifestyle: Polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos is a condition that shows irregular periods, excessive androgens (male hormones) and metabolic disorders (type 2 or gestational diabetes, abnormal BP and lipids, Insulin resistance syndrome, etc). There is a genetic component that cannot be changed. However pcos patients can make lifestyle change (weight loss, regular exercise) that will control effects of pcos.
NO: Not at all. Many are obese and tend to larger breasts
Decrease insulin res: Pcos is a manifestation of Insulin resistance, which indicates pre-diabetes or diabetes 2.There are many derangments including those of adrenal androgen, a higher free testosterone, eradication of/or irregular cycles. Hirsuitism and acne increase with these androgens. A woman's cycle becomes annovulatory. Glucophage (metformin) is the preferred treatment of the problem. Clomiphene is used to help ovulation.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies: Many women improve by using ocp's for cycle control and ovarian suppression - this gradually decreases the elevated testosterone that cause the hirsuitism. There are also medications that can block the elevated testosterone and minimize the progression of the hirsuitism.See 1 more doctor answer
Testing: Testing some hormones is part of making a diagnosis of pcos.
