Question: I am premenopausal 57 year old Australian woman with no uterus but with ovaries. No history of endometriosis but sister and daughter have it. I have had strange pelvic scan as followup to large ovarian cyst six weeks ago. See results in uploaded report. I have rheumatoid arthritis and on triple therapy. Have polycystic ovary syndrome and hypothyroid. What would you advise to do about this if I were your patient?

Brief Answer: Better to send cyst fluid for cytology. Detailed Answer: Hello. Thanks for the query. You did not mention the previous scan findings. Has the lesion increased or decreased. It is better to get a CA125 and FSH level (to know the menopausal status). I would do these tests on you. If the CA125 is normal ,simple needle aspiration by the abdominal or vaginal route can be planned - the aspirated fluid can be sent for cytological examination. However, if the CA125 level is raised,a surgery to remove your ovaries,the cyst/hydrosalpinx,a few lymph nodes,a fatty layer called omentum and peritoneal fluid should be planned. Your gynecologist will know about the tests. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards

I am 60 years old and have hydrosalpinx on the right side. Can it burst? Become cancerous? Should it be removed somehow? Since there are no pregnancy issues involved, do we just leave it alone? Will it go away on its own or just get bigger? There has been no activity in that area for many years so how did this happen?
