Omental cancer following ovarian ca 7yrs ago w/o chemo or radiation?

Omental cancer following ovarian ca 7yrs ago w/o chemo or radiation?

Your question?: Hi. From what you've told us, I assume you're wondering if the cancer in the omentum is recurrence of the ovarian cancer 7 years ago. First of all, I'm so sorry for your situation. A pathologist will be able to tell you if the omental cancer is ovarian in origin. The best guess (and guessing doesn't count) would be ovarian, however. When the surgical pathology comes back, chemo will be planned. ...Read more

Is mucinous breast cancer linked to ovarian cancer? Had mucinous b.C. In 2006. Need hysterectomy due to fibroid but don't want to give up ovaries.

Hyst?/oophorectomy: At 49 years old, you have very little use for your ovaries.

They are sites for future disease. ...Read more

IVF egg removal. 32 follicles only 7 eggs retrieved. Did Lupron (leuprolide) trigger and Hcg. Why so few?

Ask your doc: Many possibilities: incorrect timing (too early OR too late) or administration of hCG, bad batch of hCG, surgeon had difficulty with TVA, maybe only 7 mature follicles and the others were mid-to-small...your doctor and your embryology team are only ones who can answer what happened. Good luck with the 7, sounds good! ...Read more

Should I lower BMI from 20 to 19 to lower estrogen?  Had uterine cancer and hysterectomy.  Kept ovaries.  Afraid of breast/ovarian cancer.

Best Wishes ...Read more

What could replace tamoxiphen in second 5 years after breast cancer? Tamoxiphen caused me ovarian cyst and uterus thickening . Thanks

What could replace tamoxiphen in second 5 years after breast cancer? Tamoxiphen caused me ovarian cyst and uterus thickening .   Thanks

Letrozole: Tamoxifen for 5 years followed by Letrozole would be an option. However, technically you are still premenopausal so not an option. Another treatment which is controversial is to have your ovaries removes. There is data on 10 years of tamoxifen now but you may not want to do this. The other option would be observation. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Frozen sperm. Fresh eggs. Both proven donors. Nulligravid 42 yo woman. Odds of conception after et with 3?

Frozen sperm. Fresh eggs. Both proven donors. Nulligravid 42 yo woman. Odds of conception after et with 3?

Very good: The odds are excellent as long as all other aspects of your workup have been negative. Pregnancy rate with 2 embryos can give a 70% chance. Replacing 3 embryos in this situation would not be suggested as long as the egg donor was 21-28. Most donors are not accepted over 30. The risk of triplets is quite high and would cause significant obstetrical issues such as prematurity, decreased fetal size.. ...Read more
