Large Complex Ovarian Cyst: Understanding Ovarian Cystadenomas
Learn More About Ovarian Cysts
Ovarian cysts are quite common in women of childbearing age. Small cysts often come and go without any difficulties and fortunately most ovarian cysts pose no threat of cancer. Even if you have been diagnosed with a large complex ovarian cyst, chances are it is benign. It is a cyst, however, that should be evaluated further by your doctor.
There are two types of ovarian cysts, functional and complex. Functional cysts develop during the course of a woman’s monthly cycle and are fluid filled sacs that usually go away on their own without treatment. The complex cyst is a bit different. They are filled with both solids and liquids and usually require some type of treatment or surgical procedure. A large complex ovarian cyst is almost always of the cystadenoma type.
What Are Cystadenomas?
Cystadenomas are large complex ovarian cysts that are classified as neoplasms. Unlike a functional cyst that develops during the course of the normal ovary functioning, the cystadenomas are actually new growth and abnormal formations of ovarian tissue. They are the largest of all ovarian cysts and often cause problems because of their size alone.
There are two different types of cystadenomas. A serous cystadenoma can grow to be two to six inches in diameter and is filled with a watery liquid. This type of large complex cyst does not cause any significant symptoms unless it grows large enough to cause weight gain and an enlarged abdomen. They are usually benign but do have the potential to become malignant so they are generally removed.
A second type of cystadenoma is the mucinous cystadenoma. They can become extremely large but usually range between six and twelve inches in diameter. The fluid that fills this type of cyst is thicker than that of a serous cystadenoma. They are generally benign but because of their size can cause extreme problems.
An extremely large complex ovarian cyst can become so heavy that it twists in on itself causing extreme pain. They can also take up so much space in the abdomen that they interrupt the normal functioning of other organs such as the intestines, stomach and bowel. If they rupture or bleed they can be even more hazardous. Therefore surgical removal is almost always required.
Holistic Remedies Are Very Beneficial Along With The Help Of Your Medical Professional
If the cyst is small enough, it can be removed by laparoscopy, a less invasive surgical procedure. If not, removal may include removing part or all of the ovary and occasionally a complete hysterectomy. In all cases a holistic approach to the treatment of a large complex ovarian cyst can be extremely beneficial. Keeping hormone levels balanced will help promote proper functioning of the ovaries and help the healing process.
Strengthening your body’s immune system through proper nutrition, vitamins and herbs will help ward off infection or complications following surgery. A holistic approach to the treatment of a large complex ovarian cyst often includes diet changes as well. Doing whatever you can to strength your body as it deals with the stress of surgery can only help.
Frequently Asked Questions
what are the homeopathic treatment of fibroids?
my wife has large size fibroids (5) ( largest upto 5.50cm in size). we do not have child and planning to have one now. her age is 32
Homeopathy does not work. For any disease.
Look for something else that works.
I have large fibroids in my uterus (5 month pregnant) and c-section will be performed. Will it be painful?
I went to see the gyc. and she said that she will not touch the fibroids during C-section. If she does what are the chances of Hysterectomy (removal of uterus) ? I am scared as it is my first pregnancy and I need more kids. Will these fibroids decrease in size by themselves or I need the treatment after pregnency?
“After pregnancy, fibroids tend to shrink in size, and probably won’t cause you any problems.” I found a website that might be able to answer some of your questions.
I have fibroids, the largest is 5 cm. I’ve read about some of the treatment options and am unsure about which?
option is best. I’m 45 years old and don’t plan on having more children, but I’m not sure if I would opt to having a hysterectomy. Any suggestions?
I would think surgery would be the best option although i’m not sure you would require a hysterectomy necessarily. Since everybody is different I think that it would be best to speak to your doctor or if you already have to seek a 2nd opinion. There are other less invasive treatments which you’ve probably read up on them.
Ovarian cyst and fibroids?
Ive been having heavy periods and heartburn for awhile so my doctor sent me for an ultrasound which I’ve just come back from, the radiologist found a large fibroid pressing on my bladder and a large ovarian cyst on my left cyst, she said the cyst looks like it may be bleeding into itself and it was echoing back showing matter inside it,i’m really worried now, about the fibroid and the cyst and what treatment will be needed, my mum had a hysterectomy at 42 for fibroids and I’m 39 is it likely I will be the sane way, also I’m petrified of cancer too, can anyone who has had either fibroids or cysts offer some advice.
Thanks in advance a very worried person today 🙁
I can understand your fear but you need to take a deep breath and try not to panic until you see the surgeon, which will hopefully be soon. I do know that most doctors will only consider a hysterectomy as a last resource, hopefully with one they may be able to remove it with out the womb. The cysts I would think can be removed by keyhole surgery. Until the doctors mention cancer I would not worry to much. I know it is hard but try to keep calm and speak with your doctor and get the facts before you worry about things and hopefully there will be nothing to worry about. email me if I can help in any way. Good luck
Large partially pedunculated fibroid leiomyoma 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 of the anterior uterus… HELP?
In a way I can tell I’m blessed why? In 2008 I used to blame myself and others who caused a car accident that I was in. I lost so much after that accident not being able to have the very good health and physic I used to have. From 162 no I weight 210. I went to so many doctors after my accident because my neck and back was really in pain. I finally found a doctor who did thank lord give me hope that everything could go back to normal. Until the other day my chiropractors to finish my treatment cause my insurance almost with no balance, he told me that he will MRI my back. When they did they found and confirmed that I had a herniated disc L5-S1 that this accident had make worst because a previous chiropractor told me I had a disc problem before 3 days before the accident etc… But that MRI for my back shows a growing mass inside my pelvic. They send me for a pelvic ultrasound. Also the days of the MRI my tummy to the right side move so much that was crazy and I was extremely dizzy. Result came like that:
History: Pelvic pain with heavy menses.
Finding: utilizing a full urinary bladder as an acoustic window, the pelvis was evaluated and the uterus is in a normal anteverted/anteflexed orientation measuring 8.4 x 9.8 x 8.0 cm. The uterus contains a very large anterior complex leiomyoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 cm. The right and left adnexa are normal. There is no free fluid within the cul-de-sac.
Impression: There is a large soft tissue mass involving the anterior uterus almost certainly representing a large partially pedunculated leiomymoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6x 9.7 cm. This is an otherwise normal study.
I had so many symptoms related to this now I realized when I make search, I though it was normal to have these symptoms or I was like that but I was in silence sick.
