Is immature follicles same as cysts in ovaries?

Is immature follicles same as cysts in ovaries?

No: Immature follicles have not matured to the point that they are functional. Cysts occur once they have matured but are the result of improper function. They can result from other hormone imbalances in the body such as with high androgens (testosterone/DHEA) levels or low Progesterone levels. They can also form after an egg leaves properly from the ovary and are the result of bleeding/ inflammation. ...Read more

Whats mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary?

Whats mucinous cystadenoma of the ovary?

Cyst: A mucinous cystadenoma is a cyst of the ovary which is lined by cells which produce mucin, a gelatinous-type material. It is benign 80% of the time but can be borderline cancerous or malignant. Such cysts often become very large and can cause complications like torsion (twisting) of the ovary or rupture. Surgical removal is generally required. ...Read more

Is a mature teratoma cancerous?

Is a mature teratoma cancerous?

Very unlikely.: A teratoma is a tumor made up of normal organ tissues in a unusual location. Tissues may be more or less mature. The more mature the cells are, the more normal they are hence the less chance of them acting in a malignant way. There's a very slim chance that a teratoma behaves as a malignant tumor, but follow-up is critical: the more time passes after removal, the better the chances. ...Read more

PELVIC U/S: LEFT OVARIAN 1.4 CM CYST OR FOLLICLE, RIGHT OVARY CONTAINS FEW SMALL FOLLICLES THE LARGEST 8MM, IS THIS NORMAL? UNABLE TO CONCEIVE 7+ YRS.

Fertility : No need to yell at us. An ultrasound is not, in any way, an infertility work up. There are a dozen physical and chemical processes in conception. A fertility specialist will test each one to determine why you can't conceive. You will not find the answer to your question on the internet. Go to a real infertility specialist. ...Read more

What is the meaning of immature follicles in right ovary ?

What is the meaning of immature follicles in right ovary 
?

Ovulation: Women's ovaries consist of millions of tightly packed eggs. Before these eggs are ready to conceive, they need to mature over a two week period. During that process an egg surrounds itself with fluid - this structure is called a follicle. The follicle starts out tiny and grows to about 2.5 cm in diameter - then it's a "mature" follicle - anything less than 2 cm would be "immature". ...Read more

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

Is the quality of eggs affected in the remaining ovarian tissue after bilateral partial oophorectomy for dermoid cysts?

I don't think so: As you may know, all of the eggs a human female will have in her lifetime are present in her ovaries at the time of her birth. The quality of them slowly degrades as she ages. Having part of the ovary removed will surely reduce the number of remaining eggs, but the quality of the remaining ones should be unchanged. ...Read more

What does this mean? "Fibroid uterus w/notable partially degenerated 1.7 cm fibroid in myometrium of the right uterine cornua. Atrophic right ovary"

What does this mean? "Fibroid uterus w/notable partially degenerated 1.7 cm
fibroid in myometrium of the right uterine cornua. Atrophic right ovary"

Interpretation: A fibroid is a smooth muscle growth in your right section at the top of your uterus next to the right Fallopian tube. It is in the process of "falling apart"(degenerating) which can cause bleeding and pain. The right ovary is shrunken (atrophic) which is common in post menopausal women. ...Read more
