Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


I saw your post and thought it sounded familiar. I am 51 and am not sure if I'm completely menopausal or peri menopausal since I had and IUD for 3 years and that can cause the cessation of menstrual periods. However I was experiencing hot flashes, etc so if not totally menopausal I'm on my way. I had a ultra sound on Tuesday Jan 4th. I was being tested for changes to my endometrial lining since I have experienced some period like bleeding for several months now after a long time w/o. They discovered a "complex cyst" on my left ovary. My right ovary was removed w/ tube and partial left ovary when I was 21 due to Dermoid Tumor. I went today for a endometrial biopsy with my GYN to rule out cancer of the uterus. He said the cyst was worrisome. I asked if it could be another dermoid and he said "they do not come back" however after looking at my film that I took to him (my General Practioner ordered the Ultra Sound since she was prescribing biodentical hormone therapy for my hot flashes) he said it did look a little like it had dermoid characteristics. My ultra sound described my cyst as complex cystic mass of the left adnexa containing multiple posteriorly enhancing nodules some anechoic and some possess low level echoes The larges complex cyst measures 3.2 x 3.1 x 1.3 cm and a fibroid 3.5 x 4.2 x 3 cm. My GYN did a CA125 blood test to see if levels are elevated (for ovarian cancer). I'm scared but trying to be optimistic. Have you learned anything else yet?
