Ovarian Polyp Symptoms
Are there symptoms of having uterine polyps? I had two removed last summer, for the first time. Am 46 yrs old. Polyps were suspected and confirmed after routine follow-up ultrasound of shrinking ovarian cyst.
Rupture: If an ovarian cyst/mass/polyp ruptures the result will depend on the contents of the cyst. If the cyst is blood filled and connected to a blood supply then bleeding can occur, which can be life threatening. Clear, infected vs cancer cells are other possiblities. Avoid this risk, indication for surgical removal, before rupture. Stay with your doc, take friend to ask questions. Be well. ...Read more

I just had a precancerous polyp removed from a colonoscopy that doc said he does not see at my age39.The pain led me to find ovarian cyst is it cancer?
Unlikely: Ovarian cysts are very common. 3 cm or less is considered a normal functional follicular cyst related to normal ovulation cycles. A cyst greater than 5 cm in a premenopausal patient should be followed and managed by an OB GYN doctor. A pelvic ultrasound will show if the cyst is simple (no solid parts) or complex (internal solid components). Vast majority of ovarian cysts are benign. ...Read more
