Postmenopausal woman has complex ovar cyst. If need ovary removed should I have a hysterectomy due to my age of 59 gynoncologist stated ca risk is low?

Depends: If your uterus is not causing any problems it is difficult to recommend removing it. When the ovary is the problem, certainly that should be addressed. There can be reasons to remove the uterus concurrent with other procedures, but your doctor would have to discuss that with you. ...Read more

Postmenopausal with a complex mixed solid cystic lesion measuring 27mm on my left ovary with some internal vascularity. Should I be concerned?

I have a 3.4 CM ovarian cyst and am postmenopausal. It grew onehalf cm. If I have to have surgery for ovary out will I experience menopausal symptoms?

Not likely: Since you are already postmenopausal, it is not likely you will change status with this surgery. Your indication for surgery has more to do with making sure the large ovary/cyst is not cancerous. ...Read more

Am 54, postmenopausal. Had a CT scan and was told I had scarring on an ovary but I've never had surgery. How would this happen?

Postmenapausal bleeding after 16 years and Transvaginal ultrasound fails to locate one ovary?

PMP bleeding: The ovaries after menopause shrink to the size of what we call streak ovaries and often times aren't visible on ultrasound or CT scan.

Analyse risk/benefit: Best take family, talk with your gyn surgeon. The risk of leaving a growing ovarian mass/cyst in place is, could be cancer. Okay to ask about the blood tests and other risk factors. If your surgeon is recommending surgery it is likely to get a pathology exam of the mass and make sure it's not cancer. There will be surgical risk, and the analysis to benefit is important for your decision. Be well. ...Read more

My ovary size is 5.9cm* 2.4 CM on the 13th day of my cycle. Is it normal?

My ovary size is 5.9cm* 2.4 CM on the 13th day of my cycle. Is it normal?

Ovarian size: Asking about the size of her ovary is a little bit different and odd. The real issue is is there a follicle in that ovary. Since you are cycle day 13, that folliclecould be already quite large maybe even 22-25 mm or greater. The size of your ovary just doesn't matter-what matters is what is inside the ovary. ...Read more

What is a normal size ovary length, height, width in cm for a healthy 24 year old woman who has had a baby almost 4 years ago?

Ovary size: The normal adult ovary measures approximately 3cm - 5cm in length, 1.5cm - 3cm in width, and 0.5cm - 1.5cm in thickness; however, ovarian size is reported more often in terms of volume, or length x width x thickness x 0.523. Normal ovarian volume in the menstruating females is 5mL - 15mL, with an approximate mean of 10mL; however, measurements as high as 22mL have been reported in normal ovaries. ...Read more

Madam my ovaries are in normal size and shows multiple, small follicles predominantly located in the peripherywith ecogenic central storma. Wat it means?

Madam my ovaries are in normal size and shows multiple, small follicles predominantly located in the peripherywith ecogenic central storma. Wat it means?

Multiple small cysts: This could be normal but it is also suggestive of the ultrasound findings frequently associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome. You need to discuss it with the person who ordered the ultrasound. An ultrasound alone does not make a diagnosis. Your history and physical exam must also be considered. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Just had an ultrasound and my ovaries are different sizes. Is this normal?

Usually: Variation of several millimeters is not uncommon and sometimes a technical issue on the part of the person performing the scan. If the ovaries are otherwise normal in appearance there is no reason for concern. If one ovary is twice the size of the other it may be useful to perform a followup ultrasound in a few weeks or, in some cases, evaluate with MRI depending on the clinical concern. ...Read more
