Question: My daughter in law has been diagnosed with 2 cysts growing on her ovaries and one also in her gall bladder. She has been referred for gall bladder removal, but has not received any date as yet. She was diagnosed in July 2016 and presented with pain in the gut problems. After diagnosis the NHS have prescribed Morphine amongst other things and she now cant live without the morphine as it is the only thing which helps her to cope with life. The cysts on the ovaries are growing very rapidly and she has never had a biopsy. I am seriously worried. Is it normal to leave someone who cant eat and keep anything down, for so long. What else can I do to help.?

Brief Answer:
I can understand your concern


Detailed Answer:

Hi and welcome.

Of course, this is not normal to delay further diagnostic tests and therapy.

For such young women, diagnosis should be established during a single hospital admission which should be done promptly. She needs laparoscopic exploration and cholecystectomy. Ovarian cyst should be removed during the same procedure only.

Any malignancy should be ruled out with biopsy and tumor markers. If you don't have support at local hospital, you should seek for another institution.

Feel to ask further.
Wish you good health.
Regards

Hi there, I have been on yasmin (pill) since 2012 having never taken the pill before. I was diagnosed with having an ovarian cyst at the time having complained of very painful periods and bleeding in between periods my whole life. Yasmin has been excellent but for the past two months I have experienced bleeding a week before my period. I had another ultra sound and my cyst has grown bigger (before was 5cm ). I feel bloated all the time (even before pill) and find it difficult to pee. I have never been sexualy active so didnt want a transvaginal ultrasound........so my doctor instead told to go on cilest which I am reluctant to use since have read negative reviews. From my brief history do you think yasmin is causing the bleeding? should I take new pill? Any advice on what other steps I can take instead? THANKS
