Dermoid cyst with teeth and spot on pancreas

My daughter is 33 , 5 2 , 142 lbs. and has a spot on her pancreas and dermoid cyst on her one ovary and possibly in other ovary...what does this all mean? Her health has been good, but a year ago, they said she had lymes disease, but she hadn t been around dogs, cats or real woods, just walks in the local park but never saw any tick bites.

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Dermoid cyst in an ovary is not a completely harmless thing. It is best to get the cyst removed surgically.If she is married and she has completed her family then there is nothing to worry. A spot on the pancreas might be a harmless chance finding.Just monitor for any increase in its size.

Hi, I ve just been told I have two cysts on my ovaries. One is 8cm and the other is 6cm. I am 37 years old and was trying to get pregnant. I ve had to do a blood test to test if they are cancerous or not, but don t get them until tomorrow, and its driving me mad. What are my chances? Gyno says they look like dermoid cysts. Should I have surgery or should I try to reduce the size naturally? Will I have kids, ever? help please

5 wks ago I had conventional surgery to remove a dermoid cyst and both ovaries were removed. Two days later I was told that I was losing blood but they didn t know where. I was given a transfusion and ultra sound. The ultra sound showed that I had a hematoma a little larger than a baseball that was lodged in the pelvic area. It was told that this would cause more pain and take longer to heal. A week ago I was taken off all restrictions as my incision was doing well....and that the clot was smaller. Since I have had tried to increase activity but each time I do I feel weak and have more pain....more like a pulling sensation in my abdomen. I realize that my age is a factor too, being 81. However, I m a very active person and don t use my age as an excuse. Also, about three weeks ago my neighbor called 911 as I was so weak and looked unwell. The ER doctor ran all types of tests with good results. He also ordered another ultra sound and the told me he was going to call the gynecologist on call. He ordered an antibiotic. If memory serves me right the ER doctor said something about a small suture seeping ....I am quite concerned, first of all why I had post surgery internal bleeding. Until my visit to ER and being on an antibiotic I was having chills and low grade fever every evening...fever would be about 100.4 - 100.8. My normal temp is 97.6. Please advise.

I seem to be having a dermoid cyst and will be undergoing surgery in a weeks time. Which specific doctor would I need to consult. I am aware that it needs to be a gynae but would it be anything specific within that category, it needs to be open surgery as the cyst is big and near the aorta.

I am 41. I am going in for my 8th laparoscopy tomorrow for yet another painful ovarian complex cyst. This time my Dr. has suggested the removal of this ovary. My last cyst was removed 18 months ago. I lost my left ovary to a large dermoid cyst in 2009. Heading into surgical menopause makes me nervous. I know how my body reacts to a laparoscopy, but how will I feel if I am thrown into menopause? Do I just have the surgery and remove the ovary, to do it again in another 18 months, or just take out my last ovary now and move one. I am so confused.

I have clear fluid like water coming from my vagina-not urethra. I can not feel it happen and only notice when I stand up and see a wet spot on a chair or clothing. There is no odor, pain, itching, color...clear and the same consistency as water. This has happened once before when I did NOT have my period. I have endomitriosis and have had my menstrual cycle since 6/13...the past 4 days with fever, nausea, swollen gums and diarrhea-all normal for me during a bad endo phase. Probably unrelated, but I have a Primary Immune Disorder, CVID Ocular Sarcoidosis, Sjogren s, Asthma, and have had my right ovary and fallopian tube removed when a dermoid tumor grew very large and attached to both organs.
