Doctor insights on:
My right ovary is enlarged with 26.8 cc's of fluid in it along with a 2.3 CM mildly complex cyst. Is this concerning for ovarian ca?
No: At your age the risk for malignancy is very low. Given you don't have a strong family history of early breast or ovarian cancer. It's common for young women to have ovarian masses that have some complexity to them (a marker for cancer). These are almost always a dermoid, hemorrhagic cyst, endometrioma or another benign ovarian mass. Follow your doc's instructions, but try not to worry. ...Read more
8 week followup u/s for simple left ovarian cyst which remains same. Right side (no cyst) now measures 19 cc up from 12cc last time. Concerning?
I have a complex ovarian cyst which when diagnosed had little symptoms. I'm now having pain everyday and horrible bladder pressure. Does this mean its growing. Ovary was 46 cc 2 months.
Possibly: It could also mean you have a simple bladder infection. See your doctor. If cyst is that large and if you are having pain you may need to have it removed. ...Read more
Yes, get checked out: The normal bladder empties completely with urination. Urine can be retained in the bladder for two main reasons. Obstruction in the pathway from the bladder to the outside, usually caused by prostate gland enlargement or scar tissue (structure) in the urethra. Damage of the nerves to the bladder, or the bladder muscle fibers, decrease the bladder's ability to expel urine. You are retaining a lot. ...Read more

--Fickle Prostate--: If he truly has Grade 2 prostatomegaly [and you didn't receive that information in a vision after taking hallucinogenic mushrooms], then some fine young Urologist [hopefully, with a valid license] has taken tissue and is well-equipped to discuss the Gleason Scale (2-10) with you, including the fact that 30cc is the upper limit considered "normal." As for symptoms-that's another story!!! ...Read more
The doctors removed 800 cc of fluid from my mil's body. ..Exactly what does that mean and how much?
Major complication: Drgs are a way of deciding payment for treatment. Obviously a sicker patient will require more intervention and thus be more expensive to facility.

Unnecessary...: The odd to develop ovarian torsion hinges on how its anatomical fixation to its supposedly location and relation of the surrounding just like that for an testis to develop testicular torsion. Physically, a 70-cc ovary may affect its supposed orientation and impair its fixation; together, the odd to have ovarian torsion may enhance but still low. So, just wait and see to copy with life reality... ...Read more

Stable 3.5 cm simple cyst has been followed for 1 year. Ovary has now increased in size from 24 cc to 71 cc. Slight discomfort. Should it be removed?
Took Ambien (zolpidem) many years ago & slept well, woke up feeling great. W/generic one now I wake up many x (my CC.) Generics can be that different from name?
Discrepancy subtle: Generics and Trade names should have about the same amount of active agent in them. That much of a difference in response as you've reported is unusual. You can build tolerance to Ambien (zolpidem) which can account for your situation. Also, consider re-evaluating your sleep hygiene practices and have your primary care doctor help you with that. ...Read more

Wrong question 2 ask: Androderm (testosterone) is a patch available in 2 dose sizes, 2mg/24h & 4mg/24h. It's applied once daily.

Depending upon who you ask, starting dose can be up to 1mg/kg/wk. I'm not aware of a good conversion calculator. ...Read more
Yes.: Large scale studies of children have shown that the bladder capacity of children follows a nonlinear curve that is related to age. Based on a study of 5, 000 children in boston, a 4 year old would have an estimated volume of 240cc with girls having a slightly larger volume. The 4 year old girl you describe falls within the normal and expected range. The post void is normal and healthy as well. ...Read more
