I have had a hysterectomy and both ovaries removed years ago. I just got an initial pathology report back from a surgery I had a week ago and it said the mass they took out showed portions of hemorrhagic corpus luteal cysts and no endometriosis. After I had a ultasound before the surgery they thought it was cancer. After the surgery the surgeon said she thought it was a endometrioma. Now the report is coming back saying its basiclly a functional cyst when I don't have ovaries and I have gone through menopause. How is any of this possible?
yes , that can happen. Bleeding into a cyst of ovulation can sometimes look very dramatic . It can also look like endometriosis.
Now that the report has come back showing no sign of endometriosis or cancer, it would be safe to start a low dose estrogen replacement. Reports (The Women's Health Initiative (WHI)) suggest this is safe to do into your sixties.
The pathology report says:
-Portions of hemorrhagic corpus luteal cyst(s) wall
-H&E sections demonstrate portions of luteinizing follicular cyst wall with areas of organizing hemorrhage
-Suggest clinical correlation
