What is simple paratubal cyst?

Ask Ob-Gyn for info.: A para-ovarian cyst, also sometimes known as a para-tubal cyst is a type of adnexal cyst that does not develop from the ovary.

Not likely: "A simple ovarian cyst and a complex ovarian cyst" are sonographic diagnoses based on some criteria to describe what is visualized on a scan.

I had 1 simple cyst on right kidney in december, now I have 2. Is this normal?

Likely no problem: 30% of population have at least 1 kidney cyst. 2nd cyst might have been missed on a first ultrsound or ct scan and found on a second study. Thus can be considered within normal limits as r 3 cysts. Concern would only come if both your kidneys developed very many cysts, so called polycystic kidney disease. This would b more than obvious if u had PKD at your age. U don't have pkd.. ...Read more

1 CM paraovarian cyst incidentally found on u/s. Is this a simple cyst? All it said was '1 x1cm paraovarian cyst'. F/u not needed, apparently.

1 CM paraovarian cyst incidentally found on u/s. Is this a simple cyst? All it said was '1 x1cm paraovarian cyst'. F/u not needed, apparently.

Parovarian Cyst: A parovarian cyst is a tiny fluid-filled sac found in 3-4% of women incidentally for other reasons. Depending on whether the cyst is attached to the top of the fallopian tube (the fimbria) or nearby, the cyst may be called a "hydatid cyst of morgagni [see image attached]*" or, simply, a "paratubal cyst."

What are the chances in getting my 5cm paraovarian simple cyst back after surgery? Is surgery really safe? What causes this type of cyst? Thank you.

Not the one: Taken out. A true para-ovarian cyst is a remnant of when your organs were developing as a fetus. These should not come back. However, ovarian cysts do form and usually go away without treatment. Some do require surgical treatment but this is not common. Make sure you follow up with your GYN doctor ...Read more

Ok I have a 5 CM cyst with thin septation in my ovary with a few other smaller simple appearing cysts, will I be fertile again after it being removed?

Ovarian cyst: If you had the cyst for a while, it may rupture or cause ovarian torsion so surgery would be helpful. If the cyst and little else of the ovary is removed, it shouldn't have any long term effects. Still, using birth control pills afterwards would reduce the risk of other cysts developing. ...Read more

Can a simple kidney cyst change to a complex malignant cyst?

Can a simple kidney cyst change to a complex malignant cyst?

No.: Simple cysts are common and at your age 1 or 2 found in your kidneys are not worrisome. A simple cyst is not cancerous but if injury to that cyst leads to small bleeding within it, it can look "complex", meaning it is not easily distinguished from something more concerning such as cancer. These cysts warrant closer monitoring. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Thyroid cysts: Thyroid cysts are common.

Nodules and cysts that look worrisome should have a biopsy. ...Read more

I have a 1.8cm hypoechoic area within the left ovary, not a simple cyst. What is that means?

I have a 1.8cm hypoechoic area within the left ovary, not a simple cyst. What is that means?

Likely nothing: Sometimes, after ovulation occurs, the follicle which contained the egg fills with blood and then slowly gets reabsorbed. This finding is likely a resolving hemorrhagic follicular cyst. I would not recommend any followup for this finding unless it was identified because of symptoms (pain?), and only if the symptoms persist. ...Read more

What medication do I need for a simple ovarian cyst of 3cm by 3cm? Can it just go on its own or should I take something?

Ovarian cyst: Yes, simple ovarian cyst can resolve on its own, however it is prudent to use a trial of birth control pill. The pelvic ultrasound can be repeated after six months on the bcp. If on the other hand you start experiencing pelvic pain, a trip to your doctor will be prudent for reevaluation. Goodluck. ...Read more

What is the difference between a typical and simple kidney cyst? I have a typical simple cyst of 1 CM on left kidney. I 'm male 31 years...

Atypical v simple: Simple cyst is a sac that contains clear liquid. It is usually benign. Atypical means non-typical. The contents here are not clear. It may contain old blood, fatty tissues, or solid tissue. We worry about possibility of solid tissue because it may be cancerous; hence, the follow up ultrasound which is designed to detect growth in order to allow for prompt intervention if needed. ...Read more

Is a 6cm by 7cm ovarian simple cyst classified as a large cyst? Will a cyst that size require surgery if its getting bigger despite taking medicine

Is a 6cm by 7cm ovarian simple cyst classified as a large cyst? Will a cyst that size require surgery if its getting bigger despite taking medicine

Maybe: We usually consider cysts to be large if they are greater than 8 cm but that does vary some from institution to institution (some set the line at 6 cm). Simple cysts are almost always benign and can be observed unless they are symptomatic. If they are enlarging, however, surgery may become necessary. Hope that helps. ...Read more

So I have a cyst 27mm by 22 mm on my left kidney they said it’s a simple cyst that shouldn’t cause any pain but it seems that it burns on that l side?

Cyst unlikely to be: The cause of symptoms. There may be some other issue, but it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you.
With fatty liver and high blood pressure, it is imperative that you lose weight.

Ovary has a simple cyst 36x24mm+a 29x30x34mm cyst with thick avascular septation and internal debris+ cyst 10x9x13mm with thin septation is it serious?
