How does having ovarian cysts mess with my fertility? I have had many ovarian cysts rupture.

How does having ovarian cysts mess with my fertility? I have had many ovarian cysts rupture.

Probably doesn't: Simple ovarian cysts (only fluid inside them) tend to come and go and probably don't affect your fertility. If the cyst reaches a large size (>5cm) then it can cause pain. Rarely a very large cyst (>8cm) can lead to ovarian torsion which is a medical emergency (you could end up losing that ovary). An endometrioma is a cyst filled with old blood. Endometriosis is associated with decreased fertility ...Read more

Ultrasound says complex ovarian cyst, septated, internal echos and avascular. Says could be possible haemorrhagic cyst but i'm worried of cancer?

Follow-up required: In a patient of your age, it is likely self-limited and very well could represent a hemorrhagic cyst.

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst. Thanks

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst.  Thanks

Yes: It can. It would be helpful to know your age and history to comment further. Septated cysts are also a malignancy risk but there are septated benign tumors too. Do you mean 27 cm or 27 mm? The smaller one 27 mm is fairly low risk regardless; if you mean the larger (27 cm) the risk is correspondingly higher. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more

No: Most of the time in young women these cysts are functional/hemorrhagic cysts and resolve by themselves. If they keep enlarging, or become more symptomatic, surgery may be indicated. If there are imaging features suggestive of tumor rather than just hemorrhagic cyst surgery might also be indicated. ...Read more

I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst.  At what point/size should it be surgically removed.  I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.

It depends: Good evening, It appears that you already follow with GYN, so they should be able to tell you when the cyst should be removed. Many times, the cyst is monitored every 6 months to a year for interval increase in size. If the size remains stable over time, there is no need for intervention. Good luck. ...Read more
