kristie h - February 27

Hi Laides, last week i had a ultrasound as the doctor seen a cyst in my ovary. He referd me to a proper ultrasound place that showed that the cystic mass of 6cm diamiter is in my r___m. I am also constipated so he has put me on a high fiber diet that has seemed to work. I have to see him again tommorrow to see if there is hany change in the size of the cyst. I have a fare idea what cystic mass is but not to sure, does anyone know the difference between a cyst and a cystic mass? and is it more likely due to sonstipation?

Usually cysts are fluid filled, and the danger in them is that they can burst. A Cystic ma__s is solid. They rarely metasticize (spread from the local area) which is unlike a tumor or some forms of cancer.... hope this helps...

cysts are usually cancer free...although sometimes can be cancerous. I wouldnt worry though, I had a 9 lb cyst on my ovary (I had for years, but since I never got pap smears like I was SUPPOSED to, it went unknown for a long time) I finally discovered it when I started having horrible pain in my side (I guess if finally it some nerve or muscle) and went to the dr. and had an ultrasound. It grew all the way to just underneath my brest bone. Anyway, it was benign. The surgeon said with all the fluid, it weighed about 9 lbs.
