Is it possible to have brain cancer, ovarian cancer and multiple sclerosis all at the same time?

Is it possible to have brain cancer, ovarian cancer and multiple sclerosis all at the same time?

Unlikely: Theoretically yes, but would suspect that the most logical sequence would involve ovarian cancer spreading into brain and/or spinal cord and causing neurological symptoms, especially cerebellar ataxia. But then, this would seem like ms, but more likely would be a paraneoplastic syndrome. ...Read more

Most stay unchanged: How large is your ovarian cyst? Most resolve after 13th week, but if you still have it at 20 weeks it should be checked regularly for growth. Most ovarian cysts do not change size in pregnancy and do not require any treatment. If you develop symptoms of pain due to the cyst or if the cyst significantly grows then you might need surgery to remove it. Most surgery is done prior to 20 weeks. ...Read more

How do ovarian cysts cause weight gain? It's listed as a symptom everywhere and I'm experiencing it since being diagnosed w/ 2 small cysts.

How do ovarian cysts cause weight gain? It's listed as a symptom everywhere and I'm experiencing it since being diagnosed w/ 2 small cysts.

They do not: Ovarian cysts do not cause weight gain. Perhaps you are reading something about polycystic ovarian syndrome. In this case many women who struggle with weight gain also have multiple small ovarian follicles referred to as polycystic ovaries. This is not the same thing as having an ovarian cyst. If you're struggling with weight gain please investigate other causes. ...Read more

I'm 19 & have even experiencing ovarian cysts for 4 years now. Recently, I've missed 2 periods & was wondering if ovarian cysts could stop it?

Ovarian Cyst: Ovarian cysts do not stop your periods, women have a cyst every month that ruptures and releases an egg when they ovulate. You can miss a period from pregnancy, stress, hormone changes, infection, excessive exercise among other causes. You may need to consult your doctor at this point. ...Read more

June 2013 I had laparoscopy to remove multiple ovarian cysts, tomorow I'm due for another one. How soon do they return? I'm in severe pain, 28yo

May not ever return: Ovarian cysts generally develop during each menstrual cycle, in young women. Frequently one cyst per cycle becomes dominant and may enlarge to the point of discomfort prior to ovulation. There are many other causes of pelvic pain (scar tissue, endometriosis, infection). There is a good chance that your cysts may play only a small role in your pain. Cyst removal/ surgery may not always be needed. ...Read more

Calla doctor!: Talk with your doctor, a good obg if you don't have one, or a rei/fertility specialist. If your cysts are dermoids they will have to be removed: the sooner this is done the better chances of preserving the ovaries. Dermoids do not ever go away on their own. ...Read more

I have a past with ovarian cyst I had a hystercomy then 1 year later removed 1 overy now cyst is on other ovary and I'm in a lot of pain now what?

Two options: Option one- Surgically removing the ovarian cyst and starting hormone replacement therapy in some form. (pill, patch, etc.)
Option two-Surgically removing only the cyst with the understanding that you are an ovarian cyst former and it may recur, but you are trying to conserve your natural ovarian hormone source and are willing to take the risk of recurrence.
Talk to your GYN MD in detail about this ...Read more

Broad differential.: The differential diagnosis is broad. The cause of your pain could indeed be ovarian in etiology. However, it is not uncommon for other disease processes (such as kidney stones) to refer to groin area as well. More history, exam, and possible imaging studies may be needed to give you a good answer. Hope this helps! ...Read more

How does Duphaston work to break down a follicular ovarian cyst? How will I know if the cyst is getting smaller. Will I bleed? Follow up u/s in 3 week

How does Duphaston work to break down a follicular ovarian cyst? How will I know if the cyst is getting smaller. Will I bleed? Follow up u/s in 3 week

It doesn't: Duphaston is a progestin hormone, and is used to bring on a period in someone not ovulating or to prevent overgrowth of the uterine lining. It has also been used to treat endometriosis. Follicle cysts usually resolve over time. If it does not go away, it may need to be removed laparoscopically. ...Read more

Not related to surge: Your weight gain is not related to surgery.

I consulted dr they said 3.5cm complex left ovarian cyst with low level internal echoes within it so I m worried will I get concieve without any probl?

Need Fertility Exam: I would refer you to a fertility specialist. Certainly a complex ovarian cyst can be secondary to endometriosis which can adversely affect fertility. Ovarian cyst resulting from polycystic ovary syndrome – a constellation of small cysts in the ovaries, irregular periods, elevated androgens – can contribute to fertility problems. A fertility exam is required for specific answers. ...Read more

I recently had a ovarian cyst that ruptured now my cycle is suppose to come on and I'm feeling the same way I did when I first got the cyst. Is it bak?

I recently had a ovarian cyst that ruptured now my cycle is suppose to come on and I'm feeling the same way I did when I first got the cyst. Is it bak?

Maybe: Each month a cyst forms on the ovary in a woman of reproductive age. This cyst ruptures and an egg is released. This is a normal process. Sometimes a functional cyst can grow to a large size and cause problems. Sometimes there are cystic growths on the ovary that are not "normal." the best way to tell if a cyst is present is through imaging such as a us. It is hard to tell based on symptoms. ...Read more

U/S says 5.6cm ovarian cyst resolved, but it still hurts all the time. What could be going on? I'm still having all the same symptoms.

Cystic fluid: If the ovarian cyst resolved by rupturing with fluid accumulation on the lining of the internal body cavity (peritoneum), then that's why you are still symptomatic. Eventually this will resolve if that is the case. ...Read more

I have been going to doctors for years for my ovarian cysts I'm always in pain what else can I do I have one ovary removed?

Chronic pelvic pain: ...can be due to many causes, and small ovarian cysts are not among them. Large persistent cysts should be removed surgically, or the entire ovary. Kidney stones, neuro-muscular disorders, psychogenic causes, IBS, infections are all among the causes of chronic pelvic pain. Consult with the doctor that has been ordering ultrasounds for your cysts as a start. ...Read more

I'm 19 years old with 7.7x7.7x5.8 cm ovarian cyst that is predominantly anechoic with a single septation. What does this mean?

Follow up needed: Anechoic is an ultrasound term which means simple and usually benign. Hypoechoic is usually more complex and could be more worrisome. Your finding based on us and age are likely benign. However, because of the size you have an increased risk of ovarian torsion. I would definitely recommend follow up with your gynecologist for a rpt us in 6wks versus laparoscopic cystectomy ...Read more

2nd time in 3 months an U/S has shown bilateral ovarian cysts. But I thought only one ovary ovulates each month? R ovary hurts, cyst is 1cm.

Bilateral cysts: A one cm ovarian cyst is quite small and in the process of ovulation production both ovaries are stimulated and cysts sometimes forms. You are correct that ovaries generally alternate ovulation, but unless you have PCOS most cysts are benign and unilateral. ...Read more

I'm 22 years old and have left sided ovarian cyst (30 × 21 mm) since about 4 months which is don't removed by medical treatment. What treatment now?

Ovarian cyst: At 22, this is probably just a benign "simple follicular cyst", but if there are ultrasound suggestions of solid components, or blood flow increases by "color doppler" ultrasound exams, your provider may suggest laparoscopy for a tissue sample. See your provider for advice. Laparoscopy is an outpatient procedure, and will provide very accurate information. ...Read more

I had an ovarian cyst 4 years bk which ruptured and had it removed. Now I ve been diagnosed with a 7cm ovarian cyst. Can I exercise while I m onmed?

Ovarian Cysts: That is a big cyst that should be followed by ultrasound and exam by a gynecologist. Must ask questions like is the cyst simple or complex, have solid structures, multiple, does it shrink and grow, is there sludge inside? Are you on birth control pills? It can rupture with severe exercise. Probably non-jarring exercise is safe. Be followed by a gynecologist. Most of these cysts go away. ...Read more
