Post Menopause With Graves Disease Complex Ovarian Cyst
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
Graves' disease is an autoimmune disorder, meaning it is caused by antibodies directed against the thyroid. These antibodies "trick" the thyroid causing it to be stimulated into making more thyroid hormone than it is supposed to. That can lead to symptoms such as excess sweating, rapid heart rate, palpitations, tremors, frequent bowel movements and weight loss. In some cases prominence of the eyes can occur and be associated with blurry vision or diplopia. Anti-thyroid drugs or radioactive iodine ...Read more
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

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

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
