What are the chances of having a hysterectomy with endometriosis? One has formed into a tumor about 5.6cm.
ZERO!: You don't need a hysterectomy for endometriosis of the ovary (endometrioma). This can be: 1. Followed closely with serial ultrasounds if asyptomatic 2. Trial of ocps if marginally symptomatic 3. If having pain, then removal of the encometrioma alone (cystectomy) can be done and use Lupron (leuprolide) post-operatively 4. For fertility, debate if removal is indicated, but if 4-5cm- then would remove. ...Read more

Over age 40 I suggest both sides come out. Over 35 I tend to make all of mine aware of the recurrence of pain. Under 35 there is some benefit to keeping an ovary for prevention though 50% fail in 2 years and you get menopause. ...Read more
