Ovarian Cysts After Uterine Ablation
See MD: A complex mass at any time is concerning-but more so after menopause. It may have been there for years and be totally benign, but most mds will be worried about a complex mass. A ca125 and he4 test can help decide whether to go to surgery now or closely watching with follow up ultrasound. If it is more than 5 cm or there are other worrisome looking signs on ultrasound, surgery will be necessary. ...Read more
Uterrine ablation is a procedure used to destroy the thin lining of the uterus that bleeds each month. It is often destroyed with heat but can be done with freezing (cryoablation). Must be family complete. When performed for fibroid bleeding doesnt address the problem (fibroid) directly, may not work at all, and doesn't address the bulk symptoms often seen with ...Read more
No, not really: Adenomyosis is when the lining cells of the uterus are located just deep to the lining (but still within the uterus). It can be thought of as endometriosis of the uterus. Hysterectomy would remove this. Almost all fibroids are in the uterus also and would be removed with hysterectomy, although there are fibroids on rare occasions outside the uterus which could be missed/reoccur but very rare. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
U/S shows 7cm hypoechoic mass/endometrioma on ovary, prominent uterus, irregular endocavity, polyps .. history of endometriosis. is hysterectomy next?
Probably: All endometrial tissue whether or not it is in the uterus or outside is hormonally active and so when you have your period, it is not unreasonable for your endometriosis to become more active and cause pain due to shedding related inflammation. Take nsaids or start a hormonal birth control method. ...Read more
Foul smell when menstruating...diagnosed with uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and. Ovarian cysts?
Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Well yes, but...: If the ovaries are removed, then you'll no longer be producing much female sex hormone at all, and you'd then essentially enter menopause unless hormones are replaced in pill form. Daily hormone replacement pills keep levels very stable which would generally end the sorts of symptoms you get from abnormal hormone fluctuation in PCOS. Though it's far too aggressive of a treatment just for PCOS. ...Read more
No association.: I am not aware of association between iud insertion and ovarian cyst development. An iud is used to scar up the uterine lining to prevent pregnancy while the ovarian cysts develop separately inside the ovaries so i don't think there is any association. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
PCOS, Endometriosis, Heavy Cycles, 33yo, tubal ligation 3 yrs ago. Would an endometrial ablation lessen my symptoms/cancer risks?
Maybe not: Endometrial cancer can be obscured by endometrial ablations if it is not ruled out prior to the procedure by biopsy. Many women continue to have bleeding post endometrial ablation procedures, and the most likely conclusive treatment is hysterectomy if you no longer desire children. ...Read more

Hi, I'm 48 yo, have endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, pre-menopausal. CA 125 was around 200's then 159 the last one was 210 any concerns?
Likely, no: CA 125 is not recommended as a screening tool for ovarian cancer when used in risk-based stratification. Meaning, assuming that your mom or sister didn't get diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Normal for women with endometriosis to have elevated CA-125. It sounds like your doctor has done Ultrasound to evaluate ovaries as well. Your MD knows your history and risk, likely this CA-125 level is normal ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Endometrial ablation refers to procedures that use energy to damage or destroy the lining of the uterus that normally build up in preparation of pregnancy. If no pregnancy happens, the lining is shed as a period. There are several different types of ablation-thermal heat, radio frequency, and freezing. All of them are good options but some might be better in certain situations. ...Read more
