Ovarian cyst.. Scared

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone. Quick background. I am 32 years old and have a history of having functional cysts. I went a few days ago to my gyno, I have been having urgency to use bathroom, stomach, back and thigh pain. Very heavy periods with large clots. Spotting between periods and very painful cramps during ovulation. My Dr sent me for an ultrasound.

I received a phone call that they wanted to do another ultrasound with saline injected into my uterus in a few weeks. My uterine lining was 13mm along with subendometrial cysts and calcification. I also had cysts in my cervix. In my left ovary I had a small 2cm complex cyst, with vascular flow and septation.

I am very scared... As from what I have read complex cysts with septation are a red flag for malignancy. Also simple cysts do not have vascular flow.

After receiving the impression from Radiology it stated something about hemorrhagic cyst. Also.. From what I have read hemorrhagic cysts do not have vascular flow.

I do not know what to do. I don't think I can wait until Sept 14th for the next ultrasound. Any tips? Anyone been through this? Thank y

    Hi Jess,

    I'm sorry, I won't be much help on this.  If you are frightened please insist your doctor move your appointment up or go for a second opinion.  Your #1 priority should be your health and well-being.  Don't take no for an answer if you truly feel something is wrong!

    Hi Jess

    I had a cyst removed last Monday. I am 47 and didn't want to take any chances with enlarged ovary because of family history.I know that you're worried sick (we all are) and it is hard to stay positive. But it is what it is  - you have NOT been diagnosed with cancer. You will be rushed to the surgery now if there was no hope that your cyst is bening. Without strong family history and aged 32 you have a very small chance of having a cancer. You should have a CA 125 blood test (tumour marker) and a cancer assessment where everything is taken into account. This will give you more infromation about how high is the chance of malignancy (still not 100% chance!). They will look at any changes at your next ulstarsound and will make a decision how to proceed. I don't think there is much to achive by speeding the test up. Two weeks will not make any difference to your ovary. When I first heard about my health problems I bought slow juicer and started having testy and healthy juice every day. Ii gives you 15 not 5 a day! The benefits are obvious from the first week and hopefully will make a difference in a long run but fuits and veg have to be organic otherwise you will be adding extra toxins and cancerogens to your body. Best of luck!

    I am home right know after having laparoscopic surgery to remove both of my ovaries, Fallopian tubes, a 2 1/2 inch cyst and a d&c. I would recommend that you move your appt up. No need to live in fear. I was diagnosis three months ago with a large ovarian cyst. I had the same symptoms as you are. Having to urinate often, pain down my thigh and the feeling of pressure on my pelvis. My doctor ordered a blood test to test for cancer cells which came back negative. She advised me to wait 8 weeks and have another ultra sound to see if it had gone away on its own. Unfortunately it did not. She said it looked fluid filled with some blood in it and that it needed to be removed surgically and while we were in there she also wanted to remove my ovaries and Fallopian tubes. also the ultrasound showed my uterine wall was thicker than it should be so she also did a d&c. I am 50 years old and decided that this was the route for me to take since a blood test also revealed that I was in menopause. Trust me when I tell you this surgery was a breeze. I went in at 11:15 and was out of surgery by 12:30 and home by 2:00 that afternoon. The only discomfort I felt when I woke up was a little burning sensation because of the catheder that was put in once I was asleep and taken out before I woke up. I had the surgery Thursday and am feeling fantastic today. You should also feel better because even if this was a cancerous cyst you are on top of it and catching it early is so important. Good luck to you and most of all stay calm!
