Enlarged Uterus Ovarian Cyst
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 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read more

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.

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 ...Read more

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 Any source that says its abnormal is 50 years out of date.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! ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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