Ovarian Cysts Spontaneous Lactation
Can ovarian cysts cause lactation? I was diagnosed with a 5 CM benign ovarian cyst and was prescribed lutenyl. Now I am lactating.
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
Patience vs. Surgery:
Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks. Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences.
If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer. ...Read more
8 week followup u/s for simple left ovarian cyst which remains same. Right side (no cyst) now measures 19 cc up from 12cc last time. Concerning?
Can complex fluid filled ovarian cysts become cancerous? Why might there be a bright ring around it on u/s then no ring on f/u u/s? Causing much pain.
Yes it can: Complex cysts can be cancerous depending on their size and rate of growth. A CA125 test can help decide its nature. Ultrasound is a good test to measure increase in size and also may show any solid components inside the cyst. You should get the ultrasound repeated in 3-4 months and have your gynecologist guide you further. You may need surgical removal if it is causing you much pain or increased s ...Read more

It may not absorb: If it is truly a hemorrhagic cyst it should resolve in 4-6 weeks if not sooner. If it is an endometrioma, it may not resolve on its own and may require surgery to improve your ivf outcome. I recommend you talk to your reproductive endocrinologist about strategy here. You don't want to lose time if you have diminished ovarian reserve. ...Read more

Ultrasound: Ovarian cysts are best evaluated by transvaginal ultrasound. If you are young and have periods, most cysts are ok, though they may grow large and rupture and cause pain. If you have gone through menopause, ovarian cysts need to be followed more closely, since they may be cancer. Pelvic MRI is helpful in evaluating persistent cysts or cysts which may partially contain solid tissue. ...Read more
