Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

OCPs or surgery: You could take OCPs to suppress ovulation, as that's when these cysts usually start. The other option would be to have one or both ovaries removed, which can be done laparoscopically. However, if both ovaries are removed, you will need to take hormone replacement, especially at your age.

I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

No: Not unless it is causing bad symptoms or has features worrisome for cancer. Cancer is unlikely since your surgeon just looked at the ovary 3 mo ago. The cyst should be followed with periodic ultrasounds to make sure it resolves and does not develop worrisome features.

Need eval by Gyn onc: It would be wise to have a pelvic ultrasound, consult a Gyn oncologist and have your ovarian cyst evaluated further. Ultimately, either exploratory laparoscopic surgery or laparotomic oophorectomy may be needed to make a definitive diagnosis. Unfortunately there is no other accurate and reliable way to reassure you that your ovarian cyst is benign, even though most ovarian cysts are.

Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting, nausea, pressure, low appetite, fullness, freq. Urination

Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting, nausea, pressure, low appetite, fullness, freq. Urination

Bad versus good: An documented ovarian cyst that produces pressure is not uncommon. However you don't say if the cyst is 3.6 centimeters or inches. Moreover, your symptom complex with urinary frequency, and vaginal spotting post hysterectomy indicate a need to be examined more thoroughly to rule out something else by your MD including bowel or urinary tract issues.

See your doctor: Cysts on the ovary are common and not necessarily a problem. That said, some cysts represent abnormal growths and need to be removed. Large cysts that cause pain need to be evaluated by your doctor. The other symptoms may or may not be related but they should be evaluated as well. Cysts (especially in a 48 yo with symptoms) require a visit to the doctor.

Can you get ovarian cyst after a partial hysterectomy? I had a trans-vaginal, & trans-abdominal ultra sound, now I was told I had to get a CT scan

Can you get ovarian cyst after a partial hysterectomy? I had a trans-vaginal, & trans-abdominal ultra sound, now I was told I had to get a CT scan

Yes: About 10% of women with hysterectomy with the ovaries left in will need surgery for cysts (not always cancer). Ultrasound and MRI are best for evaluating the ovaries, but ct is sometimes used in preoperative evaluation. If that is the case, your doctor may be worried about cancer. Make sure a gynecologic oncologist is involoved before going to surgery.

I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but I've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but I've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

Start medically: Because of your age most people would start with medical treatments such as birth control pills or Lupron (leuprolide) or iud. Or do laparoscopy. It is also important to know what's the cause of the pain to know if a hysterectomy would help. Also knowing the cause would determine if the ovaries need to be removed - a full hysterectomy.

I had a hysterectomy 4 months ago. All of my ovarian cyst symptoms are back. Is it okay to go back on my birth control (ortho try-cyclene low)?

I had a hysterectomy 4 months ago. All of my ovarian cyst symptoms are back. Is it okay to go back on my birth control (ortho try-cyclene low)?

Yes: Unfortunately, removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) does not treat ovarian cysts. I would recommend seeing your ob/gyn for a sono to evaluate the ovaries before restarting your pills, however. Birth control has benefits but also risks, so you would want to make sure you are treating the right thing.

I had a hysterectomy in 2009 and I have an ovarian cyst that I have had for awhile now and it hasn't burst yet. Been over a year and its painful.

Time to remove it: A painful ovarian cyst that persists fro more than 6 weeks is not likely to be normal. Every women who is ovulating form an ovarian cyst with every cycle and they always go away on their own - if they persist they are not normal and usually require surgery.

Obgyn evaluation: Most ovarian cysts are benign and resolve on their own. You will need to see your Obgyn and have them evaluate it. They can determine if treatment is warranted of if this is a typical cyst that will resolve spontaneously

Hi.......I have a 3.8 cm hemorrhagic right ovarian cyst. I will be 50 yrs old and not menopausal. Had a hysterectomy 10 yrs ago. What should I do?

Hi.......I have a 3.8 cm hemorrhagic right ovarian cyst. I will be 50 yrs old and not menopausal. Had a hysterectomy 10 yrs ago. What should I do?

Watch it...: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts usually go away on their own without surgical intervention. If it isn't too painful, its usually ok to repeat the u/s in a few months to make sure it is gone. If it is very painful, it can be removed surgically. Best wishes!

I have been experiencing shooting vaginal pains for three days. I'm 64, radical hysterectomy in 1983, one ovary saved. Could this be an ovarian cyst?

Broad differential.: The differential diagnosis is broad. The cause of your pain could indeed be ovarian in etiology. However, it is not uncommon for other disease processes (such as kidney stones) to refer to groin area as well. More history, exam, and possible imaging studies may be needed to give you a good answer. Hope this helps!

Scar tissue?: Sometimes scar tissue can cause pain in an area where there was previous surgery. It could also be your colon - constipation, colitis or diverticulitis. If you have bowel changes, fever or nausea / vomiting then see a doctor. Otherwise some motrin might help with the pain.

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

Depends: At 39 years old, you probably have functioning ovaries. If they are removed you are (without hormonal replacement) plunged into menopause. A question would be, are you in pain, or are the ovaries just known to have asyptomatic cysts on them? Most physicians would remove symptomatic ovarian cysts if other means to shrink them didm't work.
