Hi my mum s 67 &she has an hyperthyroidism, TSH 0.01 but t4&t3 r normal&she has an ovarian cyst wiz ca125 444. Is it cancer?

Possibly: Tumor markers are to be taken in context with the clinical picture because they can go up in non malignant situations and there can be some debate on what number should be considered abnormal. That said, 444 is quite elevated. Rather than freaking out, make sure she sees a good gyn and gets this properly evaluated. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Have two ovarian cysts that are 3.6cm and 2.1. What is the best way foreard.

Follow up 1 cycle: The cysts are probably unimportant incidental findings - "ovaries make cysts for a living" - but 36 mm is significantly larger than expected in a normal cycle. If you took prescription fertility meds, this "might" explain. Not to worry, but after your next period you should have the cysts checked with ultrasound: 95% of these should go away in 1-3 cycles. If not, you may need other intervention. ...Read more
