Hello friends.. I was diagnosed a month ago with a 6x5 adnexal hemorrhagic complex cyst.. 7 days ago I experienced wicked muscle pain everywhere and excruciating back pain. I was just released tonight and new sonogram reports it is now a 6.5 by 5 by 9cm mass that surrounds nd is pushing the bladder and is very close to the left kidney..I have named it Mel because I am going to meet this enemy head on.. My dilemma is that the oncologist is on vacation with no attending and I am getting mixed messages. Half of staff at hosp state it needs to be removed and the rest are clueless. I am confused as to what is the normal protocols,, radiologist told me complex rarely shrinks.. Is surgery the best way or just a wait and see approach.. i dont have much patience and will worry myself to no end. thanks to all
a week from now. Do you know the difference between complex cyst and complex adnexal mass. Are they one and the same? These are what scans read former and latter. Thanks for answering, I really appreciate it
Complex, means not fluid filled, cyst and mass can be interchangable especially since it is being read by different people. The size doesn't seem to have changed much, seems like the 1st test left off one measurements, these things inside of us are 3 dimensional.
A week is not that long and worth the wait. Remember, ovarian cancer is rare, think positive!!!!! Try really hard not to worry or panic, until there is something to really worry about.
I agree. When I was in the hospital the sonogram tech was making all these funny faces, looking up and down, silly, if I wasnt smart enough to know something was there that should not have been. After an hour or so she left to "check something" and another tech came in so I knew I might have a problem.. She told me how big it was and that it was pushing against the bladder around the ovary and nearing the kidney.. Let me know that it would have to be removed.. Im in denial and just hope it dissappears.. I know it is not likely but I just may get lucky. And really is 6.5 that large, I didnt think so but Im obviously wrong.. Thanks again
I don't know.. Mine got a little bigger 6x5 to 6.5cm.. It is very close to my bladder which is why we have to use the bathroom so much. I see the surgeon on the 3rd so I will know more then.. I so dont want another surgery. But if yours shrunk even a little thats a very good sign..
do you mind me asking whats your other symptoms?
7months prior ihad surgery too for ovarian cyst which turned out to benign but that one was big like 7.2cm and it didnt cause me pain or even alot of symptoms this one the new one is small and is causing so much pain and symptoms it scares me im planning to have another us after my period hopefully its gone by then
let me know what happens with your surgeon good luck
and God bless
I dont mind at all.. I am much older than you (48)and I had a hysterectomy.. The only symptoms I have are very bad back pain and frequent urination that never seems to empty fully.. I though I had kidney stones and the cysy was found on the ct scan.. The dr says it is quite large at 6.5 x 5.9 by 9cm.. I can only hope it shrinks but I dont know if complex cysts do or not.I had a large cyst when I was 22 and they surgically removed it.. I dont think the docs really want to operate if they dont have to, hopefully yours will shrink after your period, even a little bit is ok. Im sorry i dont know that much about it but Ill share what I learn
