Full hysterectomy done. Precancerous cells in uterus. Pathology was "inconclusive" on ovarian cyst requiring an "addendum"?? what could this be?

Cells change gradual: ly. There is a spectrum. Whoever the pathologist was who read the slides of your tissues saw a slight change in them, but not nearly enough to call them frankly cancerous. Anyhow, they are out of your body now, so good riddance. ...Read more

When will my doctore know ovarian cyst highly suspicious for malignancy?

When will my doctore know ovarian cyst highly suspicious for malignancy?

By appearance: There are certain characteristics that make us more or less suspicious. These are: age (the older the more worrisome), size (greater than 6-8 cm), and complexity(simple cysts are rarely cancer). Some cysts need to be followed to see if they change or grow over time. Sometimes we just need to remove them to be sure. Discuss with your doctor to better characterize what is happening with you. ...Read more

How does having ovarian cysts mess with my fertility? I have had many ovarian cysts rupture.

How does having ovarian cysts mess with my fertility? I have had many ovarian cysts rupture.

Probably doesn't: Simple ovarian cysts (only fluid inside them) tend to come and go and probably don't affect your fertility. If the cyst reaches a large size (>5cm) then it can cause pain. Rarely a very large cyst (>8cm) can lead to ovarian torsion which is a medical emergency (you could end up losing that ovary). An endometrioma is a cyst filled with old blood. Endometriosis is associated with decreased fertility ...Read more

Have cysts on both ovaries, obgyn said its okay to try. Tested positive on ovulation tests. Could cysts affect the results?

Have cysts on both ovaries, obgyn said its okay to try. Tested positive on ovulation tests. Could cysts affect the results?

No: Ovarian cysts won't affect the results of your ovulation testing. Ovulation is a biologic race between multiple follicles on your ovaries. A number of follicles will form cysts in an attempt to become the "dominant" follicle. That is why you have cysts. However, there is only 1 winner follicle in the race each month. The rest will fade away and never get a second chance. Best wishes! ...Read more

Will previous dysplasia affect my pregnancy? Will a previous cryosurgery affect my pregnancy?

Will previous dysplasia affect my pregnancy? Will a previous cryosurgery affect my pregnancy?

No: Cryosurgery probably does not affect the integrity of the cervix. Certain other procedures for cervical dysplasia such as cone biopsies or leep may rarely compromise the integrity of the cervix. Previous low grade dysplasia should not affect a pregnancy. High grade dysplasia in pregnancy should be evaluated with colposcopy as early as possible in the pregnancy. ...Read more
