I'm 30 years old, have never had children. My mam had breast cancer when she was 44 I've got 27cm septated cyst in ovary & have typical ov/ca symptoms?
You need surgery... Your family history, symptoms and size of ovarian cyst are worrisome. You need surgery to remove it. If your Ob/Gyn is worried about cancer, he/she may recommend that your surgery be done by a Gyn Oncologist (a specialist in female cancers) but this isn't always necessary. Ob/Gyns are trained to make this decision. Best wishes.
Cancer fears. That big a cyst (bigger than a baseball if that's the right measurement) is going to produce mass effect and this doesn't have any bearing on malignancy. An imaging specialist can advise you on whether this probably mucinous cystadenoma needs to come out, and you're welcome to get several opinions. You may be offered a BRCA1 & 2 test & given more options. Glad you're educating yourself. Cheers.

Breast ovarian CA. Sometimes breast cancer and ovarian can be inherited. Mom having breast cancer at an age less than 50 can increase chances of breast or ovarian cancer in the daughters . BRCA mutation is famous for this. As your complaint and the cyst , this needs to be addressed by a gynecologist right away. Ovarian cysts are frequent findings , but this size is concerning.

What could replace tamoxiphen in second 5 years after breast cancer? Tamoxiphen caused me ovarian cyst and uterus thickening. Thanks
Letrozole. Tamoxifen for 5 years followed by Letrozole would be an option. However, technically you are still premenopausal so not an option. Another treatment which is controversial is to have your ovaries removes. There is data on 10 years of tamoxifen now but you may not want to do this. The other option would be observation. Hope this helps. Read more...
