Likely, no: CA 125 is not recommended as a screening tool for ovarian cancer when used in risk-based stratification. Meaning, assuming that your mom or sister didn't get diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Normal for women with endometriosis to have elevated CA-125. It sounds like your doctor has done Ultrasound to evaluate ovaries as well. Your MD knows your history and risk, likely this CA-125 level is normal ...Read more

2 ovarian cysts showing endometriomas. Both in a retro uterine location. Right one measuring 4 x 3.6cm and the left 6x4.5cm. How bad is my condition?

Significant: Ultrasounds are fairly accurate in the diagnosis of endometriomas. Any endometrioma over 3 cm should be removed. If fertility is not important, have uterus and both ovaries removed. If fertility important, can have cysts removed but with endometriosis and age 41, fertility may be impaired already. ...Read more

Is uterine fibroid with cystic degeneration cancerous?

Is uterine fibroid with cystic degeneration cancerous?

Usually not: "cystic degeneration" usually means that a portion of the tumor has died as a result of its blood supply not always being adequate. If the tumor is troubling you, or if it is growing rapidly, or the radiologist has other concerns, you should consider having it removed or you may be given other options such as embolization. If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

Doctor said endo uterine cyst. What is that and could it mean cancer?

Not cancer: Cysts are fluid filled nodules that are almost never cancerous. You can form cysts anywhere in the body and one in the uterus is almost certainly benign.

HCG @ 940 on9/11. Unsure of how far I am. US yesterday showed no uterine sac, but fibourus cyst on ovary. Ovarian Ectopic or just too early for sac??

HCG @ 940 on9/11. Unsure of how far I am. US yesterday showed no uterine sac, but fibourus cyst on ovary. Ovarian Ectopic or just too early for sac??

940 = early: If you don't know how far along you are, it is hard to determine what would be expected to be found on US. An Hcg level of 940 suggests that you are very early in the pregnancy. The best plan is to ask your OB - the one who knows your case well! - about your concerns and learn what they are thinking. Be sure to follow up as they recommend and contact them if you are having any pain or bleeding. ...Read more

Can an 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst cause or make haemorrhoids & uterine prolapse reoccur or is it just coincidental

Gyn exam needed: A 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst is not likely to "cause or make hemorrhoids and pelvic prolapse worse."

What causes a cystic lining in the uterine wall? One dr said its pcos & another said it was adenomyosis. Are either accurate? Do I need a 3rd opinion?

What causes a cystic lining in the uterine wall? One dr said its pcos & another said it was adenomyosis. Are either accurate? Do I need a 3rd opinion?

Depends: The lining of the uterus is increased/thickened by estrogen. Pcos is a condition where pt's produce too much estrogen, and the lining can become overthickened causing heavy/irreg periods. Adenomyosis is more common in women who have had csections or are a little older. A cystic lining is concerning, and should be evaluated with biopsy or d;c to make sure there are no precancerous changes. ...Read more

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

MRI findings: Uterine fibroids can appear as dense masses on MRI, or increase in density in the layers of the uterine muscle. Ovarian cysts are often fluid filled but also can be solid masses on MRI. I would ask your health care provider or the radiologist to interpret these findings rather than trying to identify these conditions yourself as there appearance on scans are not always the same. ...Read more
