If an ovarian cyst is malignant and leaks what happens?

If an ovarian cyst is malignant and leaks what happens?

Spread: This could increase the risk of spread if the leaked cells are cancerous. It largely depends on the type of cancer.

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

When an ovarian cyst ruptures do you feel leaking?

When an ovarian cyst ruptures do you feel leaking?

Most of the time, no: The eggs in your ovaries develop each month from puberty to menopause. The release of the egg is usually not noticed by women. Some times there may be a slight discomfort, and rarely there can be bleeding when the egg is released. The small amount of fluid released at ovuation is quickly absorbed by your body.

I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

Likely very good: At the time of ovulation, there will always be a cyst about an inch in diameter. That cyst will rupture (and leak) to release the egg, which could be fertilized if you are sexually active and without protection. After ovulation the cyst may enlarge up to 3 or 4 inches, and still be normal. Before having surgery for an ovarian cyst, see your gynecologist, most ovarian cysts do not require surgery.

Can an ovarian cyst leak and cause a watery discharge and foul odor that is not "fishy"?

Can an ovarian cyst leak and cause a watery discharge and foul odor that is not "fishy"?

No. Other causes: An ovarian cyst may form naturally as part of a functioning menstrual cycle. If it leaks/ruptures, cyst fluid is released into the pelvic cavity. No ovarian cyst causes leakage from the vagina. Discharge from the vagina could be caused by a variety of things. Some are infections, others are bacterial overgrowth (Bacterial Vaginosis). Vaginal douching is not recommended. Seek an MD visit for exam.

Is it possible for an ovarian cyst to leak watery discharge? How long does it take for an ovarian cyst to disappear?

Depends: Ovarian cysts are fluid filled sacs close to the ovaries. Some contain watery fluid while others can contain blood/debris. Most small cysts disappear within a short period of time; however, the larger the cyst, the more likely it is to persist and potentially cause problems. You should be evaluated by your doctor, who can perform an ultrasound to better counsel you based on its appearance.

How can you tell if you have an ovarian cyst. Does it rupture and leak fluid during your ovulation times? Will there be blood in mucus also?

How can you tell if you have an ovarian cyst. Does it rupture and leak fluid during your ovulation times? Will there be blood in mucus also?

Ultrasound: To see a cyst you need to take a look on ultrasound. Sometime you see it and sometimes you might see a lot of fluid around that shows the cyst already burst open. It is possible to bleed but that is not common

Should I be worried I'm leeking orange jelly from bum is this linked to my ovarian cysts or something more sinister?

See a doctor: It is not normal for a 30 year old to have fecal incontinence. Leakage from the anus is completely unrelated to any Gyn complaint such as ovarian cysts. I recommend you see a doctor.

Hard pregnant like belly&leaking breasts along w/other pregnancy like symptoms. Not pregnant. No ovarian cysts or fibroids&thyroids fine. What's wrong?

Check prolactin: Hi. Clearly we can't make a diagnosis without an evaluation and labs. But ANYTIME a non-pregnant woman has galactorrhea ("leaking breasts"), we docs wanna see a prolactin. Have your periods stopped? I'm voting for elevated prolactin.

What exactly does it feel like to have an ovarian cyst/other similar problem?

What exactly does it feel like to have an ovarian cyst/other similar problem?

Discomfort in pelvis: Most ovarian cysts have no symptoms as they are a normal part of the egg developing in the ovary. For some ovarian problems, a sense of discomfort or pain in the pelvis may be the symptom. Other problems can be irregular menstrual bleeding or pain with sex. In some cases, urination and stool patterns can change too.

What do ovarian cysts feel like?

Highly variable: Most feel like nothing, no symptoms at all. Large cysts may cause pressure, ruptured cysts are usually painful, but there is no one rule. If you are 1) in pain or 2) worried about cysts you need an exam with a doctor who can assess female pelvic pain. Good wishes.
