My right ovary is enlarged with 26.8 cc's of fluid in it along with a 2.3 CM mildly complex cyst.  Is this concerning for ovarian ca?

It's common for young women to have ovarian masses that have some complexity to them (a marker for cancer). These are almost always a dermoid, hemorrhagic cyst, endometrioma or another benign ovarian mass. Follow your doc's instructions, but try not to worry. ...Read more

Hard to say..: These may not be related to each other. Many things can cause pelvic pain, if you have large ovarian cysts (>4cm) they may be the cause, but smaller ones less likely to cause pain.Low prog levels (&small ov cysts) are both normal during certain phases of menstrual cycle. But low prog can cause mood sx, anxiety, sleep disturbances. If you have these natural Progesterone tx may help. ...Read more

I have a 8.4cm hypoechoic cystic lesion on my ovary. I saw an obgyn who wants to do a lap cystectomy. An oncologist suggested a laparotomy cystectomy. Which is more recommended? Cyst is complex and possibly endometrioma, hemorhaggic or dermoid.

I have a 8.4cm hypoechoic cystic lesion on my ovary. I saw an obgyn who wants to do a lap cystectomy. An oncologist suggested a laparotomy cystectomy. Which is more recommended? Cyst is complex and possibly endometrioma, hemorhaggic or dermoid.

Lap vs open: A laparoscopic approach is the minimally invasive approach. Open cystectomy is an old school way of doing things. Robotic cystectomy may be an option if your facility has one. I personally like the minimally invasive option of laparoscopy/robotic laparoscopy over open approach. Quicker recovery with the same outcomes if surgically equal at both. ...Read more
