Seeing a large ovarian cyst could be just an incidental finding, most likely being benign. More? Ask your doctor for specifics and relevance since s/he knows more about your individual conditions than anyone online. ...Read more

Hi Maam what does it mean by multiple peripherally arranged follicles in both ovaries, along with the right ovary larger than left one?

Hi Maam what does it mean by multiple peripherally arranged follicles in both ovaries, along with the right ovary larger than left one?

PCOS: Usually multiple peripherally arranged follicles signifies a "string of pearls" sign which is representative of a condition called PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), which means that your ovaries aren't getting the right signals to release eggs at the right time. This can be a cause of infertility, but not always. Talk about it more with your doctor or arrange a consult for more information. ...Read more

Got an ultrasound. One ovary volume is 15.65 ml and the other 21.01ml. Yet the larger one is the one with a smaller cyst. Is this normal?

Got an ultrasound. One ovary volume is 15.65 ml and the other 21.01ml. Yet the larger one is the one with a smaller cyst. Is this normal?

Ovarian cysts: Almost no parts of the body are perfectly symmetrical. Breasts, hands, feet, etc. Are usually different sizes. The volumes you describe are within normal limits. Ovarian cysts are common, and small ones are not usually dangerous or painful. Your healthcare provider should be consulted to determine what may be necessary if other symptoms are present. ...Read more

I have been told at the hospital that I have multiple cysts on both ovaries and that one of the larger ones is 4cm by 4cm can they b removed.?

Yes: However, it may not be necessary. There are several factors that determine whether a cyst (s) need to be removed. The most important is size relative to the appearance on ultrasound. And whether or not there is pain. This could be a sign of twisting of the ovary which can be dangerous. ...Read more

Ok I was told that I had ovarian cyst in both of my ovaries but my right one was a lil big and I needed to watch it, ive been having these sharp contr?

Ovarian cysts: It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring. Most are cysts which develops from tissue that changes in the normal process of ovulation. They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks ...Read more

Let me try this again one ovary larger than other ovary only shows simple folllicular cyst on ultrasound nothing abnormal can cancer present a just an enlargrment with nothing abormal on ultrasound?

Not likely: Ovaries are very active organs with monthly changes, enlarging and shrinking. Cysts come and go. Usually pelvic ultrasound is repeated after 4-6 weeks. A tumor may persist. Cancer may continue to grow. In medically literature, a size greater than 5 cm may prompt surgical intervention. Again, there are no way to rule out cancer until the ovary is removed. ...Read more

I had an afc at day 9 (i am 38, and not on fertility treatment). I had 8 antral follicles on l ovary and 9 on r ovary and a big one ready for ovulation. Is this normal? I thought afc was done day 3.

I had an afc at day 9 (i am 38, and not on fertility treatment). I had 8 antral follicles on l ovary and 9 on r ovary and a big one ready for ovulation. Is this normal? I thought afc was done day 3.

Normal ovulation: The afc is normally done at day 3 to see how many follicles are beginning to develop, in order to compare to the number that develop closer to ovulation...For this reason, another ultrasound is usually done after the lh surge, which is detectable on ovulation strips. This is normally done during fertility treatment to assess how the woman is progressing towards ovulation. ...Read more

I have a big chocolate cyst in my left ovary and don't want surgery as I had one already for uterine fibroids, can I be pregnant with it?

I have a big chocolate cyst in my left ovary and don't want surgery as I had one already for uterine fibroids, can I be pregnant with it?

Possible, not likely: I would recommend removing the endometrioma if you hope to conceive. Its effects are not just destructive to the ovary involved but also deleterious to the entire pelvis and both tubes - which could seriously decrease your fertility. Seek care with a reputable infertility specialist or laparoscopic gynecologist to address this at your earliest convenienc. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daile and good luck. ...Read more

Mri shows multiple exophytic mid posterior uterine fibroids one 5.8cm & another 2.3cm; a large simple 5cm cyst on l ovary w/many sm. Marginal cysts; & mild free l pelvic fluid. Treatment & concerns?

Mri shows multiple exophytic mid posterior uterine fibroids one 5.8cm & another 2.3cm; a large simple 5cm cyst on l ovary w/many sm. Marginal cysts; & mild free l pelvic fluid. Treatment & concerns?

See a specialist: You have multiple fibroids and the treatment options are complicated. You need to discuss these findings with the doctor who ordered the mri. The ovarian cyst is fairly large but if simple then it may resolve on its own. If you have surgery for the fibroids then the surgeon can deal with the cyst also.

A CT scan showed a 2.5 cyst on one of my ovaries. Is that a large cyst and can it cause severe pain before and during a bowel movement?

One inch cyst: Your 2.5 cm cyst is only one inch in diameter and is tiny. It should not cause severe pain during bowel movements unless it is not in centimeters but in inches. Either way, ovaries normally form cysts as part of their physiologic function and most go away on their own volition spontaneously. ...Read more

I am a 25 y/o female with one ovary, and low estrogen. My re won't do anything about it till I see him later this month. Help! My headaches are severe.?
