Having 10cm dermoid cyst in ovary removed. 1 cyst found to be cancerous. What to do?
I ve a relative who 3 days ago had two 10cm dermoid cysts removed, one from each ovary . One cyst has been determined to be cancerous and it had wrapped itself round the bowel and over the womb. Gynocological Surgeon uncoiled tumour from around bowel thus preventing a stoma and completed wash of abdominal area. Today my relative has been sent for an X-ray . Is this a matter of routine? Many thanks, Louise.
Ovarian cancer is treated by the process cytoreductive surgery or staging procedure.If this is done it is fine.Otherwise this procedure may be carried out.
x-ray is done usually to rule out bowel perforation.
