It is good that you have a clinician following you. ...Read more

Is uterine fibroid with cystic degeneration cancerous?

Is uterine fibroid with cystic degeneration cancerous?

Usually not: "cystic degeneration" usually means that a portion of the tumor has died as a result of its blood supply not always being adequate. If the tumor is troubling you, or if it is growing rapidly, or the radiologist has other concerns, you should consider having it removed or you may be given other options such as embolization. If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst after menopause?

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.

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more

Do ovarian cysts cause thickening of the endometrial wall?

Do ovarian cysts cause thickening of the endometrial wall?

Endometrium: Thickening of the endometrium during a normal menstrual cycle is due to estrogen prodcution by a follicle (which can appear as a cyst on ultrasound). There are some other cysts, like a granulosa cell tumor that also can make estrogen and thicken the endometrium. Taking estrogen can also thicken it. Polyps, fibroids and other conditions can also make the lining appear thicker on ultrasound. ...Read more

Would a hysterectomy be wise with an ultrasound result (premenopausal) complicated hypoechoic cyst on ovary and endometrial stripe of 12.9 mm?

Probably unwise but: A careful medical history and evaluation of your signs and symptoms by a Gyn (including a better description of the size, vascular pattern, blood flow, Doppler characteristics of the ovarian cyst...) would seem wiser. The 12.9 mm findings of your "premenopausal"endometrial lining would also need to be correlated with the day of your menstrual cycle.It too may be normal and need only a reevaluation ...Read more
