How to remove ovarian cyst, how long does it take to get the result of pathology?

If the case is complicated addition material may be submitted and additional stains may be ordered and could add a couple business days. Feel free to contact the pathologist working on your case. Most of us enjoy speaking with patients. ...Read more

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.

Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?

Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?

Cells change gradual: ly. There is a spectrum. Whoever the pathologist was who read the slides of your tissues saw a slight change in them, but not nearly enough to call them frankly cancerous. Anyhow, they are out of your body now, so good riddance. ...Read more

Can Beau's Lines be a result of my ovarian cysts? or is it a much more severe health issue?

Ovarian cyst pregnancy always results to ectopic pregnancy?

Ovarian cyst pregnancy always results to ectopic pregnancy?

No: In all normal pregnancies there is a cyst that develops in one ovary called the corpus luteum cyst. This cyst supports the early pregnancy and goes away on its own. Sometimes a "cyst" seen in or near the ovary does represent an ectopic pregnancy (most often in the fallopian tube". This is often accompanied by pain and bleeding. ...Read more

5 days ago i had an ovarian cyst removed...Biopsy results are not available yet. Hypoglycemia is out of control. Thoughts?

5 days ago i had an ovarian cyst removed...Biopsy results are not available yet.  Hypoglycemia is out of control.  Thoughts?

No: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. A glucose tolerance test (if you've had one) is not and never will be a valid diagnostic test for hypoglycemia. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. ...Read more

I have ovarian cyst pblm dr i take alopathy but no result now I am take homeopathy but no result dr what can I do for regular perids ?

Other alternatives: Allopathic medicine has little to offer for ovarian cysts. If you haven't had good results with homeopathy it's likely that you haven't found the correct remedy. If you have confidence in your homeopath try another remedy, if not see a different homeopath! chinese medicine & ayurvedic medicine may help, as might dietary changes & western herbs.See a holistic md: http://www.Abihm.Org/search-doctors. ...Read more

I recently had a 18cm ovarian cyst removed that had 2liters of fluid that resulted in my ovary being removed. Should I be worried about cancer?

I recently had a 18cm ovarian cyst removed that had 2liters of fluid that resulted in my ovary being removed. Should I be worried about cancer?

Ovarian cyst: An ovarian cyst, by definition, is not cancerous. Ovarian cysts are much more common that ovarian malignancy. Talk with your doctor. There was probably pathology done of your cyst, which could confirm or exclude presence of any cancerous or precancerous cells. Further, your doc can discuss your personal overall risk of ovarian CA based on any family hx or genetic testing available. ...Read more

What does it mean when they say in between a cancer and not when they saw the pathological result for the ovarian cyst? Is it more likely for cancer?

What does it mean when they say in between a cancer and not when they saw the pathological result for the ovarian cyst? Is it more likely for cancer?

Borderline: You're talking about a "borderline malignant" diagnosis, correct? This is common in the ovary. You already know that malignant tumors may be very aggressive or fairly docile, though all are dangerous. The ovarian borderline lesions are slow-growers and slow-spreaders but need to be treated definitively if at all possible like any other cancer. ...Read more

4x4 ovarian cyst by CT but 2 US's are negative so far. The pain is becoming intolerable. My doc relies on US results, CT r from ER. Suggestions please?

4x4 ovarian cyst by CT but 2 US's are negative so far. The pain is becoming intolerable. My doc relies on US results, CT r from ER. Suggestions please?

Ultrasounds: Ultrasounds are much more reliable for diagnosing ovarian cysts. CTs are better for looking for other things such as appendicitis. Much more information would be necessary to say what might be causing your pain ( where it is, what it is like, what makes it better or worse, etc.). Since you are not getting better, you need to discuss it with your doctor or get a second opinion. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have 13x10x11 CM simple fluid filled ovarian cyst, normal ca-125 result i dont want to remove my ovary how can i save it?  is laparoscopy better?

Could be: I have removed many cysts like this laparoscopically while saving the ovary, but the size you give (13 cm?) is concerning. It is safe to remove this and conserve the ovary if the concern for malignancy is low; you need to discuss this with your doctor/surgeon and good luck. ...Read more

Had a pelvic US after irreg period and pain and result is I have a complex ovarian cyst approx 5cmx4cm in size. Gyno is months away, should I be worri?

Move up appt: The irregular periods & the complex cyst would be the cause for concern. But it may be just an unusual cycle. I'm not a gynecologist, but it might be worthwhile to try and move up the gynecology appointment. You can wait to see what happens next month (things may normalize), but monthS (plural) is too long for new symptoms. Explain this to the receptionist & you can probably get seen sooner.
