Ovarian Cancer :: Solid Mass On Ovary

Apr 3, 2016

47 with what looks like a solid mass on my right ovary. Have been seen by a reputable gynecologist who doesn't think it is cancer. 2.9 cm. Took a the CA 125 test all normal. At first he thought it was a hemorrhagic cyst but, it has not changed size and has been there for close to 3 months.

No septations, no blood flow. He think it could be a fibroma but, not sure.

Going for an MRI. Worried. No history of any cancer on any side of my family. None of any kind.

Have been going through menopause for a few years. Periods are changing and some heavier than others. Been skipping off an on for a few years.

Cyst, mass is ovoid in shape.

Any ideas? So worried. But hopeful it is nothing. Hoping to avoid surgery.

Ovarian Cysts :: Solid Mass On Ovary

I went to the dr for a BV infection and 15 days of light bleeding and heavy discharge. I was sent in for an ultrasound and the discovery was:
Thickening of the endometrium with irregular margins measuring at 23 mm at its thickest. also in my right ovary they found a complex solid appearing area measuring 22x17x17mm which they said could reflect a hemmorrhagic cyst though an endometrioma should not be ruled out. I have to wait until March 2nd to see the specialist on this and I must say I am beyond freaking out out on this... any advice

Right Ovarian Solid Mass 5 Cm

Just was told via ultrasound that I had a fairly large solid mass by my right ovary.  I was told endometrioma but that I would need to get it removed. CA 125 came in at only 9 so I feel better by that.  I am 46 premenopausal so not sure the accuracy of the CA125 results.  Are all endometriomas benign?  I have not had endometriosis so not sure why this happened? I had seen doctors in past YEAR for digestive and colon issues that came in clear and I take Tylenol a lot for leg and back aches.  I also saw a dermatologist for hair growth and acne.  Were any of these side effects for endometriomas? Ovarian cancer?  For any of you ladies?

Can A Spermatocele Appear As A Solid Mass

Last week I found a lump in the scrotum, a trip to the ultrasound department came back with a "extratesticular mass 1cm x 1,2cm x 1.2cm, likely to arise from the tail of the epididymis" "The lesion shows slight peripheral vascularity on color doppler" testis and everything else was normal

So I was then referred to a urologist, who said it was best to have it removed and analyzed. So I had it removed yesterday and saw the urologist again today. He told me that he had sent it off to be tested, but felt confident it was a Spermatocele, he even listed it on the discharge sheet as the final diagnosis as a Spermatocele.

But when I read up on Spermatocele, it says it's a fluid filled cyst, so surely it would not have shown as a solid mass on the ultrasound? So I was wondering if it was possible for a Spermatocele to appear as a solid mass on an ultrasound. I will get the results next week either way, but would interested to know if it's likely to be what he said?

Bone Cancer :: Boney Mass Seems To Be Growing

Last december I noticed a hard, fixed mass in the left side of my neck. After a few visits to my PCM and ENT they attempted to do an ultrasound guided biopsy. The doctor doing it said that he hit what appeared to be a 'bony mass', and could not get sufficient tissue for a biopsy. I was then sent for a CT scan as it appeared that is was slowly growing in size. It appeared to be Exostosis from the proximal end of the left first rib that projects superiorly and slightly anteriorly. I was told that it shouldn't be anything of concern, and I was sent away. Recently I have had issues with pain the the left side of my neck, and I wake at night with numbness in my left arm and hand. It feels as if it has continued to grow in size, and I'm wondering if this is a common issue with Exostosis, or could this in fact be (unlikely I'm sure) a case of Osteosarcoma?

Thyroid Cancer :: Papillary Carcinoma - Hypoechoic Mass Lesion?

A few months back my Dr was checking my thyroid - said it felt soft - sent me for blood tests (MANY hypothyroid symptoms!) (which were ok - TSH only 1.1) and an ultrasound which showed a small 8x7x7mm hypoechoic mass lesion on the lower left lobe of my thyroid. I had a FNA biopsy two weeks ago, today actually, and already found out last Friday that 2 of the 3 pathologists said they can't say what it isn't but to remove it asap and the 3rd said absolutely consistent with papillary carcinoma and to remove it asap as well... so now I am just waiting to have it removed. My Dr absolutely agrees and said get it out! He said depending how bad it is they will decide whether they just remove the mass but will possibly remove the whole thyroid... do they end up doing two surgeries or do they get in there and see its worse then they thought and make the decision right then and there? He explained it is THE cancer to have - although no one wants any cancer... that it is very treatable etc. I'm just stressed and wondering about the whole thing. Is it normal to have normal thyroid levels but have PC?

Ovarian Cysts :: Adnexa Of My Right Ovary Enlarged - Low Level Echoes

My pelvic ultrasound showed a septated right ovarian cyst measuring 5.3 x 4.1 x 6.1cm, small amount of debris within the cyst, trace amount of free fluid within the right adnexa and my right ovary enlarged measuring 6.0 x 4.4 x 6.3cm. There were low level echoes and the septation echogenic lateral wall. Can anyone help explain the meaning of this? Type of cyst or cancer? I had cervical dysplasia about 10ish years ago and then had a cryosurgery and LEEP and all papsmears have been normal since. I'm very worried, I am 30 years old with a one year old and 8 year old.

Ovarian Cysts Removal :: Thyroid Cancer History

I am a 50 year old who started having left back pain two months ago.  After pelvic US discover 3.8 cm complex cyst.  Gyro recommended waiting and follow up ultrasound, so two months later repeat ultrasound showed an additional 2.5 cm complex cyst, original was measured at 3.1 cm.  Gyno Dr recommended surgery to remove left ovary and both cysts.  I still have left back pain, some pain when urinating, constipation, so stomach upset.  Part of me wants to continue waiting in pain to see if they resolve, but it's not fun having the not severe but constant ache in my left side.  Have a history of thyroid cancer, but have been cancer free for 4 years.  I am in perimenopause, periods are very irregular.  Went 3 months without a period, had a period, and now it's been two months with no period.  Have a surgical consult with gyn/ob at Kaiser Mr. Talbert in Sunnyside Oregon next Thursday.   I need advice and suggestions on what to ask Dr.   Part of me just wants to do the surgery and get it over with, but the other part thinks what if I wait and they go away?  With my history of cancer (I had a 10% chance that my thyroid tumor would have been cancerous and it was) I'm a little leary of just saying that since there is only a slight chance of complex cyst being cancer I shouldn't worry about that.  Maybe should have the cancer test?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome :: Ovary / Stomach Burning Flare Up

I'm 37 years old. I've been diagnosed with PCOS and Hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroid disease) when I was 25. My symptoms include: weight gain, water retention, leg swelling, hair loss, awful hirsutism, bloating, periodically growing cysts, and periodic urinary tract pain.

I don't eat red meat and dairy. I try to limit processed carbohydrates consumption (bread, pasta etc). I sometimes eat soy products but they don't go well with my thyroid. I don't exercise enough.

All the above mentioned symptoms have gotten worse in the last 13 months. I have a "beard" that I need to remove at least twice a week. I went from 125 lbs (56 kg) to 139 lbs (63 kg)! I can't fit into my clothes at all. My calves get so swelled during the day, I gave up wearing boots in winter and wearing skirts, because the look huge.

Right now, I'm having one of my "flairs". My right ovary is burning and so is the rest of my abdomen, urinary tract included. 

Doctors are always happy with my results. And oddly enough my blood tests always come back normal. Hormones included, except the estrogen that seems to be on the (acceptably) lower side. I haven't tested my levels of DHT. (My doctors never prescribe that test. Well, they never prescribe the one for estrogen; I paid for that one myself a few weeks ago). Whenever I have an ultrasound they confirm the PCOS as well as the fact that my right ovary is enlarged. But they’re never worried.

My thyroid therapy seems to be off. My endo changed it two months ago, from levothyrox to euthyral (combination of T3 and T4). And I don't feel great. I always feel a lump in my throat. I'm experiencing lack of energy and enthusiasm (too little thyroid hormone), along with occasional heart palpitations (too much thyroid hormone). It was supposed to make me feel better and help the weight loss. It made me feel worse with the mixed symptoms of hypo and hyper thyroid.

I'm thinking about fasting (juice/water), going raw, eating only during 8H a day (mostly veggies nad fish), eliminating gluten all together.

Liver - Cyst With Indeterminate Mass

I had an MRI of abdomen and incidental finding of a simple cyst in the liver and an indeterminate mass in the liver which was recommended to have ultrasound or CT scanning.

As I panicked I went straight to dr and asked for US. The radiologist who did it looked at the original MRI scan and said it was not a good picture. He then did the US and said he could see the cyst but not the " indeterminate mass" and believed it was an artefact shadow. Blood tests were normal. So worried...please help!

I am still worrying and thinking I should get it rechecked? Don't know whether MR was so bad it was movement artefact or should I believe the ultra sound. And since the weekend I have a dull ache near my ribs on my right side and I am thinking pain in the liver. Any advice?
