If my roma test is negative why do I still have to see a gynocologist/oncologist for removal of a 7.1 complex ovarian cyst may be serous or municous. I am postmenopausal so the test is 100% right.?
Ovarian cyst: Correct me if I am wrong. I think you are referring to ova-1 test. The test is designed to evaluate the possibility of benign vs malignant cyst. It is not 100% right. The purpose of the test is trying to designate who should be your surgeon, your gynecologist who usaully treat benign disease or your oncologist. ...Read more

I'm 27 and had a complex ovarian cyst for at least 10 wks. Can a gynecologist remove it or should it be an oncologist? We don't have a local gyn/onc.
Yes: Gynecologists are trained to handle this. Most complex cysts are benign hemorragic cysts. There is a small chance of malignancy so get this taken care of so you wont be worried. ...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

Question?: I assume you are asking if the oncologists remarks are correct. They are, unfortunately. However, no one can precisely say when the disease will come back - and if it does, how well some of the newer drugs will keep it at bay. If possiible, get your mother in a clinical trial that might offer the chance at newer therapy being developed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a 9cm ovarian cyst attached to my bowel. Was referred to gynecologic oncologist for bowel resection. Scared ill wake up with a colostomy bag?
Small chance only : I do not know what exactly you have. However, if there is no inflammation in the area, which i believe it is the case and if the size of the colon above the lesion is not too distended and if resection is needed you should not end up with a colostomy. However, you never know what will the surgeon see/find when he/she enters your abdomen. So, if all is relatively "clean" inside, your should be fine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
