Dr said my blood count is low. 106. I asked is it due to iron. He didn't know. He said sometimes periods, but mine are not heavy. Ovarian cyst only.?

Dr said my blood count is low. 106. I asked is it due to iron. He didn't know. He said sometimes periods, but mine are not heavy. Ovarian cyst only.?

He doesn't know??: The diagnosis of iron deficiency is usually not difficult. It can be done by simple blood tests. I commend your doctor's honesty, but question his acumen (if you are accurately and fully reporting his assessment). Menstrual blood loss is most common cause of iron deficiency anemia in U.K., even among women who report light menses. Ovarian cyst does not cause iron deficiency. Rx is iron supplement ...Read more

You: You need to have a medical evaluation immediately. I am concerned that you are having more bleeding from your cyst, a urinary problem, or something more serious. Please have an immediate medical evaluation. A high white blood cell count is not typical for a ruptured ovarian cyst, it is concerning for infection. ...Read more

Can ovarian cysts effect blood sugar? I had one rupture recently and have been having high & low blood sugar issues for 2 weeks. Also on bcp's

Not likely: Bcps in pcos are not a great idea because they increase Insulin resistance and then affect blood sugar. See if you can stop the bcps and go to Glumetza 2.5 g per day. The ovarian cyst by itself will not affect blood glucose. Cj glueck md. ...Read more

When a person has chronic high blood pressure which anesthesia is best spinal or general put to sleep fully to remove complex ovarian cyst?

When a person has chronic high blood pressure which anesthesia is best spinal or general put to sleep fully to remove complex ovarian cyst?

Spinal; see anesthes: I'm not an anesthesiologist, so the best person to talk to is whoever will be on duty on the day you are supposed to have the surgery. But, to my knowledge, "being put to sleep" (general anesthesia with a gas) RAISES your blood pressure, while spinal anesthesia can potentially lower it (for the duration of surgery). Best to get it controlled before surgery, though. TTYD or use HT Prime for how to. ...Read more

Can ovarian cysts cause persistent upper back ache and bone weakness / discomfort? I also have high ESR and very low ferritin, all other blood normal.

Can ovarian cysts cause persistent upper back ache and bone weakness / discomfort? I also have high ESR and very low ferritin, all other blood normal.

More than one issue: Simple ovarian cysts should not cause backache. Low ferritin represents iron deficiency and you may have low blood count. High ESR is usually associated with inflammation, infectious or non-infectious. You have enough symptoms to warrant a consultation with a physician. ...Read more

Cancer? 12cm complex ovarian cyst/tumor with blood flow throughout septations. And elevated 5.7 ova 1 test. Can't see oncologist for 3 weeks. Worried

Cancer? 12cm complex ovarian cyst/tumor with blood flow throughout septations. And elevated 5.7 ova 1 test. Can't see oncologist for 3 weeks. Worried

No emergency: The OVA1® test is not an indicator of ovarian cancer and is not much better than Ca125. It measures levels of five proteins found in the blood and then uses software to calculate a single score measured by using a 0-10 scale. Women who are pre-menopausal have a cut off of 5.0 whereas postmenopausal women have a 4.4 cutoff. A high OVA1® score is not a diagnosis of cancer, rather it indicates risk and should not force an emergency situation for treating a complex hemorrhagic cyst ...Read more

7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

Likely endometrioma: At your age, ovarian cancer would be exceedingly rare. Ca-125 levels can be elevated in young women for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with cancer. Nasopharyngeal cancer and ovarian have no relation to each other. Your doctor should tell you what features or characteristics the ovarian cyst has, this will tell you what kind of cyst it is. Good luck! ...Read more

How to determine if I have lost too much blood after my ovarian cyst ruptures?

How to determine if I have lost too much blood after my ovarian cyst ruptures?

PAIN: If you lose much blood with a cyst rupture, the blood will irritate the abdominal and pelvic cavities and cause pain. If you go to the er with this, they will think you might have appendicitis and evaluate for that. It does not take a whole lot of blood - 2 or 3 tablespoons - to get a significant painful reaction. It is normal to have cyst fluid with an ovarian cyst rupture, but not blood. ...Read more

I have a ovarian cyst filled with blood and am very scared. How serious are they?

Usually not serious: It's very common to form ovarian cysts. Sometimes the fluid inside is clear (simple cyst) or the cyst is filled with blood (hemorrhagic cyst). For the most part, they are not dangerous at all. They resolve over time usually. If a hemorrhagic cyst is very big (5cm or more) it can cause discomfort/pain or lead to other bad outcomes (ovarian torsion) which is rare. Cysts rarely require surgery. ...Read more
