Posted on Mon, 14 Dec 2015
Question: My wbc is around 12 my hematologist is not that concerned since its been running high for a year. I have follicule cyst on left ovary and fibroids . I'm 47 female. I called my gyno to let him know I keep getting my period every 10 to 15 days. He thinks its my fibriods . I have been feeling full after I eat . I have pain behind the left hip near the kidney.I had ultrasound sound on kidney no stones. My gyno said its my IBS so I went to see my gastro he said it muscle. Im wondering if the cyst burst. I also have 4 cyst in breast too small to aspribrate plus 4 nodgules on lung .
I'm a DES daughter I know I'm in risk for breast cancer but what about ovarian ?

Brief Answer:
DES, at this time, not known for ovarian cancer

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

If the WBC is persistently slightly elevated with no associated significant related symptoms then this is ok and requires only monitoring as your hematologist is likely doing.

Follicle cysts are common and occur as part of the menstrual cycle.
There are other abnormal types of ovarian cysts that can occur in some women but your ultrasound should have mentioned if you have additional cysts or problems with the ovaries. Rupture of one of the abnormal ovarian cysts are normally associated with significant pain.

The fibroids can cause abnormal bleeding to occur.

DES can be associated with problems but is not known, at this time, to be associated with ovarian cancer.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
