I have overian cyst its 5 cm. Can that be painful. My doctor said no?

Certainly can.: A five centimeter ovarian cyst is well within the range of what is considered normal - many women form cysts this size and have no pain. However, a cyst this size could cause severe pain if formed rapidly by filling with blood - usually this is treated with pain meds, but could require surgery. It would cause severe pain and would require surgery if it is twisted (torsed ovary) around inside. ...Read more

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Been to dr & they found fluid behind uterus. Said it could be ovarian cysts causing pain, but now I have pain in groin sometimes. Should i be worried?

Probably ok: Once you ovulate, the fluid can be seen on ultrasound. The fluid can cause pain in your pelvis. If this the cause of the pain, it can take a couple of weeks to clear. Follow up with your doctor if the pain worsens. ...Read more

Pelvic pain: Most of the time, 2 cm ovarian cysts are normal and are not a cause of pain. Nonetheless, if you are having pelvic pain, and it doesn't feel like your usual ibs, other causes should be considered. Since you have had prior surgery, adhesions are possible. Endometriosis could also be present without palpable or imaging findings. You may need a laparoscopy for definitive diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Depends: Sounds like you are talking about hydrosalpinx? Need for surgery depends if you have symptoms of not, your age, whether you are trying to get pregnant or not, and also on the size of the cyst. You should have more than one ultrasound to watch for change over time.

Watch for any change: Ulcers in the mouth are quite common. Most of them are painful and are related to virus infections(often called canker sores). They heal themselves in 7-10 days. So keep an eye on it to see the changes over the next 2-4 weeks. If it grows in size or does not heal, it needs to be biopsied by a oral surgeon(ENT or Dental surgeon) to be examined micrcroscopically to rule out early cancer. ...Read more

The doctor said i has cyst about 7 or 8 CM on my ovaries is that big and do I need to be really worried.? Does it need removed quickly showed in ct.

The doctor said i has cyst about 7 or 8 CM on my ovaries is that big and do I need to be really worried.? Does it need removed quickly showed in ct.

Ovarian cysts: In women of reproductive age, it is common to have cysts. There is an increased risk of cancer as the cysts grow. A 7-8 cm cyst is considered large. Additional imaging with ultrasound or MRI would provide increase information about septations and nodules not seen on ct. It would certainly be prudent to consult with gyn to discuss options including follow up ultrasound or removal. ...Read more

My gynecologist confirmed by ultrasound I have a dermoid cyst. He said because it's bigger than 5cm he needs to remove it. Is this normal? I'm worried it's cancerous although he said it was benign and "didn't look bad." Just nervous!

My gynecologist confirmed by ultrasound I have a dermoid cyst. He said because it's bigger than 5cm he needs to remove it. Is this normal? I'm worried it's cancerous although he said it was benign and "didn't look bad." Just nervous!

Surgery is correct: Dermoid cysts are removed as a general rule if >5cm. They are internal growths that form during embryonic development and can contain skin-like tissue and fat; and maybe even bone, hair and nail. They are not cancer, per say, but they are removed because of the potential for becoming infected and the potential for becoming cancer later. Your gynecologist is right to reassure you,and to remove it ...Read more

Consultant said that I have a large fluid filled area on my left ovary and thats what is causing discomfort, I am 5 weeks pregnant, what is this?

Normal: Typically a cyst forms where the egg that was released causing the pregnancy. This is a normal development of the follicle. Sometimes that follicle can fill with more fluid as the pregnancy progresses. That follicle actually provides the hormones to support the pregnancy until the placenta takes over at around 6-7 weeks. Most women will have a cyst of 2-4cm at 5 weeks of pregnancy. ...Read more
