I was diagnosed with a 4.2x4.3 non hormone secreting pituitary tumor back in Feb. Now I have a 3.2cm ovarian cyst. Are they related?

Unrelated: Hi. We must assume your pituitary tumor units are MILLImeters (mm, not cm), or else it's HUGE. But no, no relationship between a non-functioning pituitary adenoma and an ovarian cyst. They're just coincidental. ...Read more

I have a 2.8cm ovarian cyst. I have the brca1 mutated gene. My ca125 blood test came back normal. Could it still be early stage of ovarian cancer?

I have a 2.8cm ovarian cyst. I have the brca1 mutated gene. My ca125 blood test came back normal.  Could it still be early stage of ovarian cancer?

Rare: Ovarian cysts are of concern when over 5 cm. If the small cyst is not complex it is usually followed by ultrasound. Ca 125 has no diagnostic implication but is only of value for monitoring. Brca1 suggests the cyts should be followed. ...Read more

I have polysistic ovaries with cycst could this turn into cancer?

I have polysistic ovaries with cycst could this turn into cancer?

Not so likely: Women with polycystic ovaries are at increased risk for endometrial cancer because of the hormonal chaos. The cysts of the ovaries in polycystic disease aren't undergoing rapid cell turnover, hence the low cancer risk. By contrast, primary cancers announce themselves as individual cysts but grow rapidly. ...Read more

Partial thyroidectomy in 2006 for nodule, result was benign. Been on 100mcg Synthroid (thyroxine) but a new small nodule has appeared. Had ultrasound and told to not worry and come back in 1 yr. Do you agree?

Partial thyroidectomy in 2006 for nodule, result was benign.  Been on 100mcg Synthroid (thyroxine) but a new small nodule has appeared.  Had ultrasound and told to not worry and come back in 1 yr.  Do you agree?

Yes: Nodules are common in the thyroid. As long as you have thyroid tissues, there is always a chance of a new nodule popping up. If the past surgery was benign, and the new nodule is small, you can follow it with regular ultrasound and act on it (biopsy) only if there are significant changes on the ultrasound. ...Read more

Can u still have endometriosis or ovarian cancer w/ a clear transvaginal ultrasound? My doc says my ovaries are normal and my tiny cyst is gone. I have tons of pelvic pain & my mom has the brca2 gene.

Yes and No: Yes: you could definitely have endometriosis with a clear ultrasound, but would not likely have an endometrioma of the ovary no: it would be pretty unlikely to have ovarian cancer with a clear ultrasound and even if you did have extremely early undetectable cancer, it would not cause pain. ...Read more

Could i still have thyroid issues with normal bloodwork lump in neck thinks its thyroid? Had three miscarriages too no answers

Not sure...: Thyroid levels can fluctate, so even if it was normal once, it can be abnormal later. Check with your endocrinologist. If you feel a lump in your neck, get it looked at. The endocrinologist can also likely take care of the evaluation for that, but you might need an ENT to look further into it. ...Read more

TSH level was .85. Ultrasound confirmed I have an enlarged thyroid with a goiter on the right side of thyroid. Have a ton of symptoms, hyperthyroidism?

Thyroid: In most labs the TSH level would be quite low and indicate hyperthyroidism (excess T4) though this should be measured to ensure it is not due to other factors. You should be evaluated for the various causes like Graves, Toxic adenoma, and hyperplasia. Then a best treatment can be offered. ...Read more

I recently had a 18cm ovarian cyst removed that had 2liters of fluid that resulted in my ovary being removed. Should I be worried about cancer?

I recently had a 18cm ovarian cyst removed that had 2liters of fluid that resulted in my ovary being removed. Should I be worried about cancer?

Ovarian cyst: An ovarian cyst, by definition, is not cancerous. Ovarian cysts are much more common that ovarian malignancy. Talk with your doctor. There was probably pathology done of your cyst, which could confirm or exclude presence of any cancerous or precancerous cells. Further, your doc can discuss your personal overall risk of ovarian CA based on any family hx or genetic testing available. ...Read more

My ovarian cyst grew half cm. I am postmenopausal.If surgery will i need both ovaries out. Increase in heart disease and kybf ca  if ovaries removed?

Analyse risk/benefit: Best take family, talk with your gyn surgeon. The risk of leaving a growing ovarian mass/cyst in place is, could be cancer. Okay to ask about the blood tests and other risk factors. If your surgeon is recommending surgery it is likely to get a pathology exam of the mass and make sure it's not cancer. There will be surgical risk, and the analysis to benefit is important for your decision. Be well. ...Read more

Just found out I have MTHFR homozygous 1298. Had breast cancer at age 24 and have raynaud's (no ANA/thyroid issues detected), could that be related?

Just found out I have MTHFR homozygous 1298. Had breast cancer at age 24 and have raynaud's (no ANA/thyroid issues detected), could that be related?

No: Get with a responsible holistic-focused practitioner in your community who can help you make sense out of the MTHFR business. A majority of people test "abnormal", most of the pathology community is unconvinced this is useful information, and I'd be more interested in your being screened for tumor family genes. I'm very glad the cancer was detected and wish you the best. ...Read more
