If my roma test is negative why do I still have to see a gynocologist/oncologist for removal of a 7.1 complex ovarian cyst may be serous or municous. I am postmenopausal so the test is 100% right.?

What medical information/product training are oncologists and gynecologists given before they prescribe a drug such as an aromatose inhibitor?
My gynecologist said I have endometrial hyperplasia and i need an iud. She is sending me to an oncologist. Why is this?
Don't panic: Endometrial hyperplasia is the precursor lesion that has the potential to develop into frank uterine cancer.

I found out I have Ovarian cysts that need to be removed.To save my ovaries would my doctor send me to a gynecologist oncologist? Or where would I go?
How can I find someone in the boston area to aspirate a simple 6 CM fluid filled ovarian cyst? I met with a gynecologist-oncologist who thinks that the chance of cancer is very slim. I am a 44-year-old woman who is completely unwilling to risk losing th
Ask your Doc: Your doc should be able to refer you to the appropriate gyn or simply ask the gyn-onc you saw. It's also possible that your cyst is functional (normal) & will resolve on it's own (no surgery).

They may suppress your ovulation with ocps if you are a good candidate, take care. ...Read more
