How does a biopsy of an ovarian cyst happen?

Usually not

Cyst
Usually biopsies are not performed on the ovary. Rather if there is a cyst or mass that is suspicious, it will usually be removed entirely, either with or without the rest of the ovary. However not all cysts need to be removed. Sometimes a cyst can be a normal finding.

Yes whenever the surgeons do any surgery and remove any tissue or explore any pathology they take a tissue and send it to the lab for histological eaxam and that's true for cysts as well

No

In my 35 years of practice, I have NEVER seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. THe disorder doesn't exist, If you're overweight the symptoms are a NATURAL response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is NOT AND NEVER WILL BE a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy.

I have an enlarged liver, spleen, gallstones and an ovarian cyst. Will be going for a breast biopsy because the Dr's found something. Cancer?

Unkown

Cyst
Your liver problem has nothing to do with the breast. Impossible to predict the biopsy result without seeing mammogram , ultrasound etc.

Dr. David N. Dang answered:

I have an ovarian cyst that won't go away... I had 3 transvaginal ultrasounds .. Now the Dr says it's normal... I had an abnormal endometrial biopsy?

Likely benign cyst

Cyst
If the cyst appears benign (without septation or nodules) and has been stable over a reasonable time frame, it likely is benign. This is not related to endometrial problems.

Mum,64, having benign ovarian cyst(5.1cm)removed laproscopically.CA125 -2.3.Remove ovaries & uterus? Confused as biopsy result will come after surgery

Ok

Uterus
If it is a benign cyst please do not worry. most systems are benign however in a 64-year-old woman there is a small chance of malignancy. the pathologist will review the tissue and make a biopsy report after the surgery to ensure that it is benign

Complex ovarian cysts possiblity it could be cancerous...should it be biopsied or removed? I have a paraneoplastic syndrome been in search if there is any tumors in the body causing my symptoms. A mass or complex cyst was found on my left ovary that has b

There

There are many things to consider here. One is your age, also do you have children? What was your doctor's recommendation? Have you seen a gyn/oncologist? If not you should do so for a different opinion/perspective. Honestly I can't make a recommendation based on the limited info. I have, therefore I encourage you to get a second opinion. I hope other doctor's here on Avvo.com can lend their opinion as well. Good luck.

can an ovarian cyst be cancer?

Sometimes.

Cancer
Some cysts, like serous cystadenomas are precursors of cancers. Any cyst the persists for more than 2-3 menstrual periods should be checked further, particularly those who have a history of ovarian cancer. Sometimes biopsy and Ca-125 levels must be taken, while other times surgery is needed.

They says i ve ovarian cyst. does it kill if its not cancerous and how is it determind that its cancerous?

Biopsy

Cancer
Non-cancerous ovarian cysts are unlikely to be a cause of death; very rarely one will bleed or otherwise cause death, but this is most unusual. Whether a cyst is benign or malignant (cancer) is best determined by a pathologist examining the tissue after it is biopsied or removed at the best judgment of the treating physician.
