I just found out a large solid septated mass on my right ovary that is assumed to have ruptured. Told I need a hysterectomy. Do I need a second opinio?
Need clarification: It is important to get clarification from your doctor on the diagnosis. A solid mass would not be ruptured. A cyst could rupture but it would not be solid. If it were ruptured it would no longer be visible on sonogram. A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. This surgery would not address a problem in the ovary. An oophorectomy or cystectomy is the removal of the ovary or a cyst. ...Read more

I figured out I have a large simple cyst, 172 cubic cm, and torsion, but NP didn't say anything about torsion. Don't you need emergency surgery for it?
Ultrasound: Torsion is only diagnosed by an ultrasound which can demonstrate blood flow (or lack thereof) to a testicle or ovary. It can also be diagnosed during surgery. Cysts can increase your risk for torsion, but it's still not very common. Torsion is excruciatingly painful and is a surgical emergency. Please discuss your concern with your NP. ...Read more

Your doctor will gui: The doctor who has ordered your tests suspects that you might have Cancer of the Ovary showing as a Cyst.

I was told I have a ovarian 1cm complex cyst with Hypervascularities. Does this mean it's cancerous?
Slight possibility: Cystic lesions of the ovary smaller than 4-5 cm. are usually benign. For those that may be converting to a malignant state the cystic component tends to become complex.

A fertility exam is required for specific answers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sometimes the findings are equivocal (may look mixed solid-hollow) and further studies have to be done but it's pretty good at telling which is which and very little discomfort involved. ...Read more
Ca-125 (cancer antigen 125 or carbohydrate antigen 125) is a biomarker/tumor marker for ovarian cancer (etc); however, it is not sensitive or specific enough to use as a screening test. Also, a uk study showed that treating based on ca125 level did not improve outcomes. "125" comes from the 125th attempt to develop a marker. It was introduced by bast ...Read more
