6cm septated solid mass on r ovary. Told hysterectomy is needed. How long should I wait to seek second opinion? How urgent is it to act upon?

6cm septated solid mass on r ovary. Told hysterectomy is needed. How long should I wait to seek second opinion? How urgent is it to act upon?

Seek Options: It's premature to schedule hysterectomy (removal of uterus) for a solid 6 cm ovarian mass. It may be benign (teratoma, cystadenoma, endometrioma, etc) versus malignant. Ultrasound can give info to grade these risks (nodules, septations types, etc) but cannot diagnose cancer. In fact, only tissue bx can DX cancer. Consider ovarian cystectomy vs oophorectomy, lsc vs open, & discuss with your gyn. ...Read more

My ca125 levels are slightly elevated and there is a solid mass on my ovary, should I be concerened that it is ovarian cancer?

My ca125 levels are slightly elevated and there is a solid mass on my ovary, should I be concerened that it is ovarian cancer?

Depends: Ask your gyn. A solid mass is concerning, but your age, menopausal status, and the ultrasound characteristics are important as well. Elevated ca-125 suggests ovarian cancer, but may be somewhat elevated in many benign conditions, as well, including endometriosis. All of this needs a discussion with your gyn and a possible referral to a gyn oncologist - who are the real experts in this area. ...Read more

Please help, solid mass found on my ovary. : (what is the liklihood of cancer?

No guess work here: A solid mass in ovary can be cancerous. So it should be removed and examined by a pathologist to determine its nature. It may be benign or could even be cancerous; only the pathologist, by doing a microscopic examination, can define its nature/cause. ...Read more

If my second opinion remains the same for the unknown solid septated mass on r ovary which option is best lupron (leuprolide) or surgery? Questions I should ask?

Ovarian mass: A solid 7 cm mass of the ovary needs to be evaluated surgically. If you have already had a surgical diagnosis of endometriosis, and the mass looks like an endometrioma, then trying Lupron (leuprolide) could be an option. If the mass does not resolve surgery should be performed. ...Read more

What questions should I ask new gyn to get accurate diagnosis for for ruptured unknown solid septated mass on r ovary w/ ovary swelling to 7cm?

What is it?: The first thing you will need to ask is is the mass still present? If there is a 7 cm solid ovarian mass then most likely it needs to be removed. Discuss this option with your doctor. If the mass has ruptured and is no longer there then nothing will need to be done other than a follow-up ultrasound to confirm resolution. ...Read more

I just found out a large solid septated mass on my right ovary that is assumed to have ruptured. Told I need a hysterectomy. Do I need a second opinio?

I just found out a large solid septated mass on my right ovary that is assumed to have ruptured. Told I need a hysterectomy. Do I need a second opinio?

Need clarification: It is important to get clarification from your doctor on the diagnosis. A solid mass would not be ruptured. A cyst could rupture but it would not be solid. If it were ruptured it would no longer be visible on sonogram. A hysterectomy is the removal of the uterus. This surgery would not address a problem in the ovary. An oophorectomy or cystectomy is the removal of the ovary or a cyst. ...Read more

I have a 6x5.4x4.3 solid simple mass w/nodularity in my ovary. Scheduled for surgery will I lose that ovary? I don't want to. Do I have other options?

I have a 6x5.4x4.3 solid simple mass w/nodularity in my ovary. Scheduled for surgery will I lose that ovary? I don't want to. Do I have other options?

It's Complex...: It depends on a combination of your age, risk factors, family history, & cyst characteristics. Tumor markers only help if cancer is found to measure response to treatment. Surgical findings are also helpful and biopsies during surgery may help decide if only the cyst is removed, leaving your ovary behind. You must address this with your surgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

What tests are available I can ask about to receive an accurate diagnosis to the unknown solid septated mass that was found on r ovary which has ruptured?

Ruptured cyst: Sometimes a diagnosis is hard to make on ultrasound. Surgical diagnosis is the only way to know 100%. It could have been a functional cyst, an endometrioma, a dermoid, a cystadenoma. Unfortunately, it may not be answered based on imaging alone. ...Read more

How bad is a ruptured dermoid or endometrioma on the ovary? Had an unknown solid septated mass just over 5cm that ruptured and those were possible.

How bad is a ruptured dermoid or endometrioma on the ovary? Had an unknown solid septated mass just over 5cm that ruptured and those were possible.

Not Good: A ruptured dermoid (teratoma) is not good because the contents (sebaceous material, tissue, cartilage, teeth, etc) can cause a chemical peritonitis which can cause pain, inflammation, & scarring (bad "juju"...). A ruptured endometrioma is not as bad since it's mainly old blood which can resorb although it too can cause scarring. Teratomas do have malignant potential & should be removed; take care. ...Read more

I had a ultrasound done last week, & a 5.8 solid mass cyst was discovered on my right ovary, which the doc said doesn't look cancerous.

Only one way to know: Unfortunately with these masses the only way to know for sure what it is, is to undergo surgery to remove and examine the types of cells involved under microscope. If it's a round mass w/out any other lumps/bumps then maybe it's benign but no way to know for sure. You can consider observing it to see if it gets bigger in a few months or you can plan surgery. These masses can twist and cause pain. ...Read more

I have a complex mass I'm L adnexa. Measures 6.2x5.5x5 cm and my L ovary is 5.2x7.2x6 cm while my R is 3x3.2x1.8 cm. Should it be rmoved?

Gyn consult: Certainly an adnexal mass is of concern. Often a careful evaluation by ultrasound can differentiate benign from malignant masses. You should be carefully evaluated with a medical history, exam and ultrasound by a gyn surgeon and follow their advice re: appropriate treatment. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
