Hi, I'm 48 yo, have endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, pre-menopausal. CA 125 was around 200's then 159 the last one was 210 any concerns?

Hi, I'm 48 yo, have endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, pre-menopausal. CA 125 was around 200's then 159 the last one was 210 any concerns?

Likely, no: CA 125 is not recommended as a screening tool for ovarian cancer when used in risk-based stratification. Meaning, assuming that your mom or sister didn't get diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Normal for women with endometriosis to have elevated CA-125. It sounds like your doctor has done Ultrasound to evaluate ovaries as well. Your MD knows your history and risk, likely this CA-125 level is normal

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'm 47 with enlarged uterus & complex ovarian cyst, history of endometriosis, 4 pregnancies w/1 live birth & sister w/stage 3 ovarian & 1a endo cx.?

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.

A cornucopia: You have 5 major reasons for seeing a GYN MD now. This is the "horn of plenty" of symptoms that need immediate evaluation. Surgery may be in your immediate future after biopsy and evaluation.

What can I do for a large ovarian cyst and an enlarged uterus?

What can I do for a large ovarian cyst and an enlarged uterus?

Depends: If the large ovarian cyst is physiologic or functional, it will resolve spontaneously over time. If it is not physiologic, it may need to be removed depending on the size and symptoms. Enlarged uterus may be due to a number of causes. Unless it causes symptoms nothing needs to be done.

I'm in a lot of localized pain, I was diagnosed with an enlarged uterus, a bicornuate uterus, and some ovarian cysts. Pain is extreme. ER? or primary?

I'm in a lot of localized pain, I was diagnosed with an enlarged uterus, a bicornuate uterus, and some ovarian cysts. Pain is extreme. ER? or primary?

Depends: None of the items you listed necessarily warrant an emergent evaluation, so your primary doctor should be able to guide you as to what to do next. However, if the pain is unbearable, go to the ER.

A septed ovarian cyst, not a functional cyst And slightly enlaged uterus 10.5 CM, option of surgery or ultrasound In 6 wks, should I worry, cancer?

A septed ovarian cyst, not a functional cyst And slightly enlaged uterus 10.5 CM, option of surgery or ultrasound In 6 wks, should I worry, cancer?

Depends: Septa come in thin and thick. If the septa are thin then that is good. The thicker they are the harder it is to tell if it is benign or not. The size of the uterus is not that bad. Talk to your doctor for more details before making a decision

How to treat an ovarian cyst behind uterus?

How to treat an ovarian cyst behind uterus?

Ovarian cyst: Location of the cyst its not that important while treating a cyst (not thinking from a surgical standpoint, where it can actually have some effect but for the surgeon). A cyst can be treated medically, expectant management or surgically.

I have a inhomogeneous uterus with 2.6 cm thickening and several presumed cysts. I also have an irregular complicated ovarian cyst should I be concer

Uterus: See your regular OB-GYN doctor on this issue. You might need to have D & C procedure on your uterus for biopsy. As far as ovarian cyst, ultrasound will be good for follow up on regular basis. Sometimes laparoscopic surgery might help for diagnosis and treatment.

Ovarian cyst and septate uterus question? Who should I see for surgery?

Gyn surgeon: A septum in the uterus often doesn't require surgery unless it is causing problems with reproduction like miscarriage. A cyst often doesn't require surgery either unless large, painful or complex features. Simple cysts usually resolve spontaneously.

Was told a few months ago my uterus is retroverted. I had two ovarian cyst 39mm x 30mm on the right ovary. Was that the cause?

Was told a few months ago my uterus is retroverted. I had two ovarian cyst 39mm x 30mm on the right ovary. Was that the cause?

?: This cannot be answered without more background and likely an exam/ultrasound. Retroverted uterus is normal, about 10% of women have this. Any source that says its abnormal is 50 years out of date. Ovarian cysts 30-40 mm are larger than normal but not large enough to warrant intervention; they should be followed up though. Best!

Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?

Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?

Cells change gradual: Ly. There is a spectrum. Whoever the pathologist was who read the slides of your tissues saw a slight change in them, but not nearly enough to call them frankly cancerous. Anyhow, they are out of your body now, so good riddance.

I am a 24 year old female with the following results from a transvagina scan; uterus (74x47x53mm), endometrial thickness of 20mm, ovarian cyst 15mm?

I am a 24 year old female with the following results from a transvagina scan; uterus (74x47x53mm), endometrial thickness of 20mm, ovarian cyst 15mm?

Normal scan: The size of the uterus and thickness of the endometrium are normal. You have a small ovarian cyst. This is also a normal finding. Your body makes a small ovarian cyst each month in preparation for ovulation. All these ultrasound findings are normal. Best wishes!

Been to dr & they found fluid behind uterus. Said it could be ovarian cysts causing pain, but now I have pain in groin sometimes. Should I be worried?

Been to dr & they found fluid behind uterus. Said it could be ovarian cysts causing pain, but now I have pain in groin sometimes. Should I be worried?

Probably ok: Once you ovulate, the fluid can be seen on ultrasound. The fluid can cause pain in your pelvis. If this the cause of the pain, it can take a couple of weeks to clear. Follow up with your doctor if the pain worsens.

I have an ovarian cyst and find that my uterus cramps after I eat grapefruit, is this normal? Should I stop eating grapefruit?

I have an ovarian cyst and find that my uterus cramps after I eat grapefruit, is this normal? Should I stop eating grapefruit?

Try it: There is no reason not to give change in diet a trial. Omit grapefruit and if it relieves symptoms, so much better. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Last weeks ultrasounds showed left ovarian cyst and fluid in uterus. No right ovary was visualized and I don't think it was the 2 times prior in 2013. Should I be concerned?

Last weeks ultrasounds showed left ovarian cyst and fluid in uterus. No right ovary was visualized and I don't think it was the 2 times prior in 2013. Should I be concerned?

Ultrasounds: Ovaries can be difficult to identify if there is a good amount of inflammation in the area, gas, fluid, etc. They tend to blend in to their surroundings, unless you have a really good ultrasound machine. Next time you go in, ask the tech to identify the ovary for you, and you'll see what I mean; in some cases it is very subtle. I would discuss with your doctor. Good luck!

What is the condition where you have ovarian cysts, blocked fallopian tubes & a sticking uterus?

What is the condition where you have ovarian cysts, blocked fallopian tubes & a sticking uterus?

? past infection: There are many types of ovarian cysts. Sticking uterus is a general, non-specific, gross description. As a result, the answer can only be speculative. Put the three together, past infection and scar formation come to mind. Management will depend on more accurate diagnosis and what symptoms the person has.

Ultrascanning abdomen report says - retroverted bulky uterus with thickened endometrium, left simple functional ovarian cyst. What does this mean?

Ultrascanning abdomen report says - retroverted bulky uterus with thickened endometrium, left simple functional ovarian cyst. What does this mean?

See GYN: The thickening of the endometrium (lining of the uterus) needs to be checked out. Usually the doctor will do an endometrial biopsy to see if the cells are normal or abnormal. A functional ovarian cyst is nothing to be concerned about and is just related to ovulation usually.
