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

Ovarian drilling with lap and dye, polyp removal, drainage & curretage, done on cd15 which was 20days ago. When should I expect my period?

Ovarian drilling with lap and dye, polyp removal, drainage & curretage, done on cd15 which was 20days ago. When should I expect my period?

It depends.: I assume you had some bleeding right after the procedure. How soon you'll get a normal period depends on how regular your periods were before the curretage, how deep the curretage was and what "strength" of birth control pill you're taking is. If you're still on OC's, you mightll have a period by the en of your second pill pack. In any case, I would be more concerned about heavy bleeding. ...Read more

What might cause midcycle bleeding? . I started Micronor (norethindrone) 1 1/2 months ago. My last period was a week ago. I have polyps and one ovarian cyst.

Progesterone only: Micronor (norethindrone) doesn't contain estrogen, only progesterone. For this reason it doesn't give you a regular period each month. Your periods can be somewhat random while you are on this medication. It can come more than once per month and the duration of flow may be inconsistent. If you want one period a month, you may want to be on a pill with both estrogen and progesterone. ...Read more

The same polyps symptoms reocurred 3 months after the polyps have been removed after a colonoscopie. Does a colonoscopie need to be done immediately?

Not necessarily: If you had a thorough exam and all polyps were removed 3 months ago, and symptoms have recurred, doubtful due to new polyps as they do not grow that fast. Your symptoms were probably not due to the polyps and as yet have not been correctly diagnosed. I would discuss with your endoscopist ...Read more

No: Gallbladder polyps are benign and not dangerous. They don't cause pain or blockage. There is no reason to remove the polyp or the entire gallbladder due to this.

Polyp: Treatment may not be necessary if the polyps do not cause any symptoms. However, polyps should be treated if they cause heavy bleeding during menstrual periods, or if they are suspected to be precancerous or cancerous. They should be removed if they cause problems during pregnancy, such as a miscarriage, or result in infertility in women who want to become pregnant. If a polyp is discovered after menopause, it should be removed. ...Read more
