What causes ovarian dermoid cysts?

What causes ovarian dermoid cysts?

Not known!: Hello, we don't know why ovaries make their cysts. Seems that they are a very active organ, what with making eggs and hormones, and sometimes the egg-making cells just overgrow and become a dermoid cyst, complete with hair, skin, and other cells that the 'germ cell' (egg producing cell) has in it's potential. Wierd, huh! they are benign, but don't go away without surgery, and can be recurrent. ...Read more

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst. Thanks

Can a cystic tumour be cancerous? 27cm septated ovarian cyst.  Thanks

Yes: It can. It would be helpful to know your age and history to comment further. Septated cysts are also a malignancy risk but there are septated benign tumors too. Do you mean 27 cm or 27 mm? The smaller one 27 mm is fairly low risk regardless; if you mean the larger (27 cm) the risk is correspondingly higher. I hope this helps, good wishes. ...Read more

Complex left ovarian cyst what is that 6.4 x6.2?

Complex left ovarian cyst what is that 6.4 x6.2?

Ovarian cyst: complex means either it has walls (septations) or has both cystic and solid components. At over 6 cm in size your cyst is at risk of causing twisting of the entire ovary causing torsion (cutting off the blood supply). Usually at 6cm it needs to be addressed likely surgically. Complex cysts also mean slightly more likely to be tumors (benign and cancerous) are usually complex or hemorrhagic ...Read more

Pelvic ultrasound(trans-veg.)shows-acutely anteverted smallish uterus-47X32X46 mm. right ovary looks endometriotic& a haemorrhagic cyst18mm-is it bad?

Pelvic ultrasound(trans-veg.)shows-acutely anteverted smallish uterus-47X32X46 mm. right ovary looks endometriotic& a haemorrhagic cyst18mm-is it bad?

See your provider: This sounds like a normal size uterus and normal size ovary. Endometriomas are ovarian cysts which contain old blood in them. 18 mm is pretty small. If you haven't had it, you might still benefit from a laparoscopy to look for and treat endometriosis especially if you have 4 years of infertility. You might also need reproductive endocrinologist (infertility specialist) if you haven't already. ...Read more

Findings at ER: left ovary contains heterogeneous peripherally vascular 2.5cm cyst. Right ovary has 2.0cm heterogeneous cyst. MUCH pain. What's next?

Options: For young women with a newly found cyst (or cysts) and bad pain - as long as they aren't too large (usually less than 7cm) we typically recommend allowing 6 weeks for the cysts to go away on their own - and then doing another sono to check and see if they are gone. sometimes a cyst can twist, or "torse" and that requires emergency surgery. If pain is severe, and meds don't help, surgery is option. ...Read more

Can Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma cyst resemble functional cyst on MRI?

Can Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma cyst resemble functional cyst on MRI?

No: A simple cyst has a very specific benign appearance, while a cystadenocarcinoma usually has characteristics that are pathognomonic for a complex mass. A benign hemorrhagic cyst may resemble a worrisome cystadenoca. If you are worried about an ovarian cyst, talk to your doctor. You can do an ultrasound in 4-6 weeks. If it is a cancer, it will not be the same size or have the same characteristics. ...Read more
