Ovarian cyst: The ovarian cyst with septations is small, and probably benign. The myometrial fibroid is also probably benign. A trial of "ovral" (a birth control pill) may diminish both in time, but your doctor may also want a sample of tissue from the ovarian cyst which is gotten via laparoscopy because of the septations. The chances of abnormal cell growth are small. Discuss options with your doctor. ...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. 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

Okay: So long as you don't have a strong family history for ovarian or breast cancer, this small cyst on the ovary isn't concerning. It's very small in size. And is likely an incidental finding on ultrasound. The fibroid you described as well is also benign and small. The most important and definitive opinion comes from your doctor who knows you the best. But overall, these findings are not worrisome. ...Read more

No alarm: At 1.6cm cyst in a women who is 28 years of age is probably not a big deal. First of all, 1.6cm is very small.

If you repeat an u/s in a couple of months, you can prove it is gone. Ovarian Cancer is uncommon at your age. Best wishes! ...Read more

How long is it normal to wait for surgery to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?

Depends: Their is not a specific amount of time. This usually would not need to be performed immediately. If you have pain, an elevated CA-125, a family history of ovarian cancer or some other concerning feature then that would increase the urgency. Regardless, I would not wait to long. Several weeks would not be uncommon depending on the surgeon's and hospital's schedule. Hope this helps. ...Read more

There is an increased risk of cancer the larger the size of the cyst. All complex cysts should be followed with an additional ultrasound to document resolution. ...Read more

I'm 19 years old with 7.7x7.7x5.8 cm ovarian cyst that is predominantly anechoic with a single septation. What does this mean?

Follow up needed: Anechoic is an ultrasound term which means simple and usually benign. Hypoechoic is usually more complex and could be more worrisome. Your finding based on us and age are likely benign. However, because of the size you have an increased risk of ovarian torsion. I would definitely recommend follow up with your gynecologist for a rpt us in 6wks versus laparoscopic cystectomy ...Read more

What does mean to have a thick septation on ovarian cyst? 5cm, left, grown within a few mts. White rounded line on ultrasound. I have endo. Is this ok

Information: Is the septation 5cm or the cyst? Since you know you have endometriosis, it could be an endometiroma. However, septated cysts are often monitored closely, with frequent ultrasounds and follow up until regression which can take up to a year. Some doctors feel it necessary to take it out to make sure it isn't cancerous. Do you have other symptoms? I think you should definitely talk to your doc further ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: Ovarian cysts are usually simple and benign. They can be indicative of abnormal cell growth, and should be followed up with laparoscopy and a sample of tissue which can be diagnosed under a microscope. This will tell the doctor if the ovarian cyst is benign or should be removed. Septation is just a term for a divided cyst (two chambers). ...Read more

My daughter diagnosed Complex Ovarian Cyst with septation and debris. 4.3 cyst. Pain and fear. Do these cyst normslly require surgery?

No: Most of the time in young women these cysts are functional/hemorrhagic cysts and resolve by themselves. If they keep enlarging, or become more symptomatic, surgery may be indicated. If there are imaging features suggestive of tumor rather than just hemorrhagic cyst surgery might also be indicated. ...Read more

I have a complex ovarian cyst with septations and debris about 14ml in volume. It was 7ml 3 months ago. It's now pressing against my colon. Treatment?

Talk to your GYN: Your personal GYN can best answer for your specific case, but generally if the cyst is enlarging and causing symptoms by pressing against your colon it may be best treated surgically. See link for more information on ovarian cysts.

Ultrasound shows I have an ovarian cyst, 5cm, a thick septation, small amount of cul-de-sac fluid, tumor, infection. Is this ok? Wanna avoid surgery.

As long: As there are no findings worrisome for ovarian cancer it is reasonable to follow this cyst with an ultrasound in 3 months. Cancers tend to have soft tissue parts in addition to the cystic areas. They may also have increased blood flow compared to cysts. Best to discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Ovarian cysts: Ovarian cysts are very common in young women and can resolve within 6 weeks. It is very possible that there wasn't a large cyst on that ovary when they did the ultrasound. No imaging technique is 100% but Ultrasound is actually the imaging modality of choice for ovarian cysts. ...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

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

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more
