Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

What exactly is a complex dermoid ovarian cyst with an enhancing mural nodule? And how serious is it?

What exactly is a complex dermoid ovarian cyst with an enhancing mural nodule? And how serious is it?

Not cancer: A dermoid cyst is a benign type of turmor containing multiple types of tissue and has a characteristic appearance under sonography. It will always have a complex appearance and the mural nodule is simply part of that. Most dermoids gradually get bigger and have to be removed at some point, but if it remains stable it could be watched. Surgery can be done day surgery with small incisions. ...Read more

I have two ovarian cysts, one complex and one mural nodule. They are very painful. I've had one in the past. Does this affect fertility/having kids?

I have two ovarian cysts, one complex and one mural nodule. They are very painful. I've had one in the past. Does this affect fertility/having kids?

Gynecology consult: Knowing a woman's age is a prerequisite to evaluate ovarian masses. I have not heard of a "mural nodule" in the context of ultrasound of the ovary. Complex cysts at times are benign ovarian masses, for example, a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, which is the result of ovulation, at times they can be precursors of malignancy. The findings described should be discussed with a gynecologist. ...Read more

13 year old daughter has an incidental finding of mildly complex cyst (ovarian) of ~3*3*3 cm containing 10*6*5 mm mural nodule. Should I be concerned?

13 year old daughter has an incidental finding of mildly complex cyst (ovarian) of ~3*3*3 cm containing 10*6*5 mm mural nodule. Should I be concerned?

Not right now: Tell us why was her Ovary checked in the first place? Does she have any symptoms? This cyst can get bigger and the mural nodule can enlarge. This should be re- checked in 3 to 6 months time. If these show further growth then surgical intervention may be required. Find a good Gynecologist to help you sort this out. ...Read more

Can you tell me what a 2.4 CM left ovarian cystic lesion with 8mm enhancing mural nodule suspicious of neoplasm.

It is suspicious: You should ask your doctor what it means in terms of future follow up. Since it is suspicious, a repeat imaging study needs to be done in 2 months. I would also advise you to find out if a ca125 test has been done or not? This might provide further guidance as to the possibility of ovarian cancer (if the ca125 is high now, removal of this lesion (cyst) should be considered sooner than later). ...Read more

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?

Yes.: The fact that the cyst contains a solid nodule makes it more likely to be a tumor (either benign, or hopefully not-malignant), and make it important to have surgery to remove it. There are some lab tests that your doctor can order that can help to stratify it as higher or lower risk to be a cancer, but it should be removed. ...Read more

Bibasilar sub CM pulmonary nodules noted on CT scan. Sclerotic focus in right and left iliac, 0.4cm and 0.5cm.1.7cm complex right ovarian cyst. Concerns?

Bibasilar sub CM pulmonary nodules noted on CT scan. Sclerotic focus in right and left iliac, 0.4cm and 0.5cm.1.7cm complex right ovarian cyst. Concerns?

Prob. Not.: All those items seems relatively benign, ie, not important. If it associated with abnormal labwork, or significant symptoms, then a PET scan may be more useful to identify active disease.
If this is the first time the lung nodules have been seen, then a follow up CT in 3-4 months would be recommended. ...Read more

I've just been told I have a 7cm ovarian cyst with nodules sitting behind uterus. I need ca125, hcg, afp, ldh tests and surgery. Should I be worried?

I've just been told I have a 7cm ovarian cyst with nodules sitting behind uterus. I need ca125, hcg, afp, ldh tests and surgery. Should I be worried?

Your doctor will gui: The doctor who has ordered your tests suspects that you might have Cancer of the Ovary showing as a Cyst. But we need to have all the tests done, particularly CA125 before we can get any certain idea. A high
CA -125 level is common in most cases with cancer of the ovary. But it can sometimes be high for other benign conditions but the elevation is more modest in those other conditions. ...Read more

What is the left adnexa? "exohytic cyst w/ solid mural nodule in the left adnexa likely arising from left ovary" what is this? And what does it mean?

Unclear: The left adnexa is the area on the left side of the uterus which is where the left ovary is located. It's not entirely clear that that mass is. Your doctors are probably not sure either. They may suggest a few things such as more imaging, repeating the imaging in a few months or a diagnostic laparoscopy. Hopefully it's not anything serious. Good luck. ...Read more

How can I deal with ovarian cyst pain?

How can I deal with ovarian cyst pain?

Ibuprofen: Ibuprofen would be my first recommendation for the occasional ovarian / ovarian cyst pain. If you have discomfort every month, birth control will keep the cysts under control, therefore minimizing any ovarian pain. Occasionally, a large cyst may leak or rupture causing severe pain. Most the time, this is still managed with prescription pain medicine and will resolve over a few days. ...Read more

OK: The definition of simple ovarian cyst is in comparison with complex cyst. Simple cyst is diagnosed with ultrasound, you will see a cystic structure in the ovary with echo-lucent (very clear). Very oftern, it is a non-ovulated follicle. It will disappear naturally without treatment. The complex cyst, on the other hand, with echogenic area inside of the cyst, needs further investigation. ...Read more

Would like to know more about the ovarian cyst?

Would like to know more about the ovarian cyst?

A normal process: A woman produces an ovarian cyst every month from alternating ovaries. This is called ovulation. Normally, an ovulatory cyst is about 20 mm maximum, but cysts can grow to be large and cause problems. Most cysts less than 4 cm will resolve after a cycle or two, but if they get bigger, they need to be followed carefully. Severe pain from "torsion" can occur when the ovary with cyst twists on itself. ...Read more
