7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

Likely endometrioma: At your age, ovarian cancer would be exceedingly rare. Ca-125 levels can be elevated in young women for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with cancer. Nasopharyngeal cancer and ovarian have no relation to each other. Your doctor should tell you what features or characteristics the ovarian cyst has, this will tell you what kind of cyst it is. Good luck! ...Read more

Lower abdominal pain every day. Is there possibility to get ovarian cysts 3 mts after lap surgery for removing endometrioma? Taking pills, too.

Lower abdominal pain every day. Is there possibility to get ovarian cysts 3 mts after lap surgery for removing endometrioma? Taking pills, too.

Let your dr know : It may be time to see your ob/gyn doctor sooner than later for further evaluation of this. S/he can do an examination, and possible ultrasound to let you know what is really causing the problem. You don't want to really be guessing on this, as it may or may not be related to your previous procedure. In any case, it needs to be documented in your records. So that proper follow-up can occur. ...Read more

I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. may reflect a large endometrioma. Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?

I have a right adnexal ovarian cystic lesion measuring 11.2x10.9x7.7 cm. may reflect a large endometrioma.  Sml Amt free fluid in culdesac. How bad is?

Need firm dx: MRI can be helpful to firm up the diagnosis of endometrioma and be an adjunct to ultrasound. MRI may find other lesions. On the other hand laparoscopy has the advantage of getting tissue and performing therapeutics. A small amount of free fluid is non-specific and not unexpected for a cystic lesion of that size. Decisions as to how to proceed require clinical correlation and advice of GYN. ...Read more

44 with septated complex ovarian cysts. left is 5cm, right is 12cm.Regular gyno says she can do laparotomy but should it be done by gyno onco?

Consult a Gyn onco: Even though there is a reasonable probability that your ovarian cysts may be benign and that you do not have an ovarian malignancy or a cancer, it would be best to consult a Gyn oncologist who can offer you an adequate preoperative evaluation (tumor markers, etc..) and discuss the risks/benefits of laparoscopic/robotic exploration versus laparotomy and possible cancer staging procedures. ...Read more

I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst. At what point/size should it be surgically removed. I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.

I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst.  At what point/size should it be surgically removed.  I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.

It depends: Good evening, It appears that you already follow with GYN, so they should be able to tell you when the cyst should be removed. Many times, the cyst is monitored every 6 months to a year for interval increase in size. If the size remains stable over time, there is no need for intervention. Good luck. ...Read more

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
