I have three cyst on one kidney less than 2cm and 5 on the other kidney, also less than 2 cm. # have peripheral calcification. I am very worried.?

Worried about what?: You apparently saw a doctor to have the imagining studies done. Did you have any symptoms? What did the doctor who ordered the studies tell you about the imaging results? Cysts in the kidney are not uncommon and simple cysts are not a cause for concern.

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

I had a laparoscopy check to see if I have endrometriosis. A 3 CM cyst was found in my ovaries. I don't want to get a general anesthetic when it's removed. Can I get a spinal instead?

Talk to surgeon: This procedure can be done under regional anesthesia, if they do not do it laproscopically. If they do use this technique then a regional anesthesia will not be sufficient. You need to make sure you have discussed your wishes and concerns with the surgeon and anesthesiologist. Good luck.

Not to worry: This is seen occasionally and is likely not a concern during your pregnancy. If you continue to be concerned, you can follow it up after you give birth. Either with another ultrasound or an mri.

I have 2 septated cysts in keft ovary one which is 2.3/2.1./2 CM and the othet 1.3/2.5/1.5 CM should I be worried?

I have 2 septated cysts in keft ovary one which is 2.3/2.1./2 CM and the othet 1.3/2.5/1.5 CM should I be worried?

Not likely: Ovarian cysts are exceedingly common and usually benign. The size you indicate (about 1 inch) is well within the range for normal ovaries. Your doctor can recheck the ovaries in 4 to 6 weeks. If the cysts are normal they will be changing and over time will go away, but be repaced with more cysts. If the cysts are not normal, they will continue to enlarge and would eventually require treatment.

Possible: When an ovarian cyst ruptures, it can release some fluid which can irritate the abdomen. This pain should go away in a few days. Take Ibuprofen for pain. Ovarian cysts are normal.

What's the best antibiotic for haemorhagic cyst 3.3' 3.4 cm?

What's the best antibiotic for haemorhagic cyst 3.3' 3.4 cm?

No antibiotic.: Are you referring to an ovarian hemorrhagic cyst? They are not caused by infection, so antibiotics will have no effect. They are usually considered presumptive "functional" cysts and tend to resolve in 1 or 2 cycles, so the initial management is usually follow up in 6-8 weeks or so.

What helps the pain in 3 ovarian cysts. Two are 5cm and 1 is close to 8 cm.

Take it easy: You should refrain from excessive physical activity as cysts in this size range have a tendency to torse or twist causing excessive pain. Should pain worsen significantly this may be a sign of a medical emergency and you need to seek care in the ER or your with your GYN who is following you

Is it normal for a 15 CM cyst to throb?

Is it normal for a 15 CM cyst to throb?

U mayB feeling pulse: You didn't mention the location of your cyst, but by your history, you might be inferring an ovarian cyst. The cyst itself can be throbbing with pain. You may be actually feeling also the throbbing sensation from your femoral pulse, which is very strong and located nearby the ovary area. If the if the throbbing becomes more intense, it's best to contact your ob/gyn doctor to ask them what you should do. Similar to pelvic's cyst location. May be very close to the femoral artery.

I have a 2.75 CM cyst on my ovary. What do I do? And I am in pain

I have a 2.75 CM cyst on my ovary. What do I do? And I am in pain

Cysts will resolve: Small cysts on the ovary are very common. The overwhelming majority will resolve on their own without surgery. Although they may hurt the best treatment is to take Ibuprofen for the pain and to wait to see if it goes away. Usually obgyns will repeat the sonogram 6-8 weeks later to confirm the cyst has resolved.

I have a cyst in my spleen. Cyst has 'been measured 3. '2 CM what append to me?

Various causes: Splenic cysts have a number of causes, including congenital or familial (present @ birth or running in the family). They can also result from trauma and certain immune conditions like sarcoidosis. I notice that you live in Sri Lanka. Infections, particularly parasites, are a common cause of splenic cysts in southern Asia. Consult your doctor about definitive diagnosis and treatment.

Can a follicular cyst go from 2.8 CM and painful to 2.3 CM and not painful then back to 2.8 and painful?

Maybe: Yes. Or it could be different cysts. Cysts are usually only painful when enlarged and ruptured/bleeding with evidence of cul-de-sac fluid.

Probably not: With an endometrial lining of only 6, 2 mm, it is unlikely that you are pregnant, unless you are in very, very early pregnancy or have a tubal pregnancy. An over-the-counter urine pregnancy test should be fairly accurate.
