I am a 30 year old mother of one 8 year old. In June 2015 an ovarian growth was discovered on my left ovary (incidental finding in the background of a scan I was having because I was passing kidney stones). They said it had solid components and was possibly a dermoid but was only 6mm so we would watch and wait.
3 months later I become more symptomatic, heavier periods , I begun getting 2 periods some months, grew a lot more facial hair. I had another scan where the cyst showed up again as a solid cyst / possibly a dermoid and it was now over 2cm. and I was told to watch and watch.
A year after that I went back to the doctor (September 2016) Because the symptoms intensified - my periods became RIDICULOUSLY heavy (using a "super tampon" less than every half hour) My breasts keep swelling on and off at random times all throughout my cycle. The Cyst was then called a complex cyst and had grown to 3cm and I would need to watch it closely and have it removed soon. At the same time a large cyst was discovered on my right ovary which ruptured very painfully midway through the next month (it was suggested by my doctor that the left cysts was messing with my hormones and caused the large right cyst).
A month later (last month) I had ANOTHER scan and today I have just managed to get back to the doctor. She said there is another simple right ovary cyst (26x21x16) She became very confused and concerned by the ultrasound report, she said it doesnt make sense and that so much has changed. she said they are saying they couldn't clearly see around my left ovary but they see "a cyst" that is 3.1cms and is not clearly joined to anything - it says "an adnexal cyst, appearing separate from ovary, no complicated cysts" My right ovary volume is 10ml and left is 4ml, is says they could not see my ovary at all when using a Trans vaginal ultrasound and could only just see if from the abdominal ultrasound. I also have an endometrial polyp. measuring 14x8x15
She said about the difference between the previous and latest scan: "this doesn't make sense, its time to take this seriously and go to a specialist" and she gave me an urgent referral to a gynaecologist.
I don't understand what has happened - it sounds innocent to me? but my doctor thinks either the original cyst is hidden in there and the adnexal mass is a new one. or that something else is going on. We have been watching this grow for almost 18 months now (slowly) and suddenly this past month the structure of the cyst has changed dramatically. Does any of this make any sense to anyone?
can anyone shed some insight on this?
scan report also said: no free fluid, myomentum is mildly heterogenous but no descrete nodules.
