Large Endometrial Ovarian Cysts Symptoms
Endometrium: Thickening of the endometrium during a normal menstrual cycle is due to estrogen prodcution by a follicle (which can appear as a cyst on ultrasound). There are some other cysts, like a granulosa cell tumor that also can make estrogen and thicken the endometrium. Taking estrogen can also thicken it. Polyps, fibroids and other conditions can also make the lining appear thicker on ultrasound. ...Read more
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
Have endometrial mass being monitored. On holiday. Ovarian cyst removed few yr ago. Nervous. Is this bad? Not told family yet.
Usually not.: Most masses in the uterus are non-cancerous fibroids. If that is what it is, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. But you need to know for sure. Ask your doc what it is and if he is worried about cancer. Usually endometrial cancer is diagnosed with an endometrial biopsy or D&C. If your doc was really worried, he would be doing more than monitoring. Best wishes! ...Read more
I have to keep being monitored for left ovarian cyst and thickened endometrium. I cannot take the pain of endometrial biopsies. First 2 were normal?
Same ovarian cyst for a year, discomfort sometimes.Ultrasound shows the same size but always there also endometrial thickening.Should i be concerned?
Probably ok: Small cyst are not uncommon and can cause pain. The thickening of the uterus can be related to your cycle (it varies throughout the month) at the time of the scan. If your cyst is stable in size over the last year and the pain is tolerable, probably not much to do about it. Just watch it. ...Read more
I'm only 26 and I have fatty liver and I have ovarian cyst and probable fluid in the endometrial canal is that good or bad?
How can the normal limits of the endometrial thickness be determined when i bleed 25 days a month, (5 mm at age 39)w/ history endometriosis&ovarian cysts?
Evaluation : It is not normal to bleed 25 days a month and the endometrial lining is expected to be thin since you are shedding the lining each time that you bleed. Once your obgyn will determine the underlying cause of your bleeding and your cycles will return to be normal then you can evaluate the thickness of the lining. The best time to evaluate the lining is prior to ovulation. ...Read more

I had 8cm ovarian cyst and endometrial tissue removed. Is it necessary to take hormones such as lupron (leuprolide) to prevent a reoccurence?
No: Lupron (leuprolide) will help prevent recurrence while you are on it. However, Lupron (leuprolide) is usually used short term and it may recur after you stop it. Drugs such as birth control pills can be used long term and so may be more helpful. Still, going on hormones after surgery is not absolutely necessary. ...Read more
I have an ovarian cyst that won't go away... I had 3 transvaginal ultrasounds .. Now the dr says it's normal... I had an abnormal endometrial biopsy?
I am a 24 year old female with the following results from a transvagina scan; uterus (74x47x53mm), endometrial thickness of 20mm, ovarian cyst 15mm?
Normal scan: The size of the uterus and thickness of the endometrium are normal. You have a small ovarian cyst. This is also a normal finding. Your body makes a small ovarian cyst each month in preparation for ovulation. All these ultrasound findings are normal. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
