How much does a ovarian cystadenoma scare me?

How much does a ovarian cystadenoma scare me?

Very little: Cystadenomas are benign and do not develop into cancer. If they are larger than 5 cm, they can twist and damage the ovary, or they can rupture causing pain. Furthermore, until they are removed, the fact that they are benign rather than borderline malignant or malignant, is hard to tell with certainty. For the above reasons, removal is recommended. But once removed, no worries! ...Read more

Ovarian cyst dermoid or serous cystadenoma can be tested with small part for complete pathologic analysis?

Ovarian cyst dermoid or serous cystadenoma can be tested with small  part for complete pathologic analysis?

Unfortunately Not: The problem with ovarian tumors is that you can have normal cell types adjacent to borderline or malignant cells. The ovary is notorious for hiding cancer cells which is why it's impossible to "eyeball" or sample an ovary and get a complete diagnosis. That's why often the ovary is completely removed if malignancy is suspected. Cancer can also increase in stage if spillage occurs so it's not easy. ...Read more

I have a 93mm unilocular midline ovarian cyst, possibly cystadenoma.   Pain in lower buttock down leg, very restricted urination.

Need removal: Typically a CA-125 level would be checked to help determine the likelihood of malignancy. Sounds low based on the US findings. Regardless, the mass should be removed to relieve your symptoms and so that a pathologist can evaluate the ovary. Most times both tubes and ovaries would be removed and sometimes the uterus. Discuss with surgeon to make the best decision. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Benign serous cystadenoma if the ovary is left intact women over 35 year of age will increased risk of overian cancer?

Excision: Danna, there is no way to know if it's a benign, serous cystadenoma until it is surgically removed and examined by a pathologist. Benign serous cystadenoma is a pathological diagnosis that cannot be made while the ovary is left inside. If the tumor is removed in an intact ovary, and this is the diagnosis, there is no cancer. ...Read more
