Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Can you define your ca counts for me more? What is this test?

Complex ovarian cysts occur less frequently and are not related to the normal menstrual cycle. These are generally harmless or benign.

Has your physician told you which type of complex ovarian cysts you have?

Dermoid cysts -These are the most common type and develop during the childbearing age. The cysts contain structures such as the teeth, hair, nail, bone, or sweat glands. It is a slow growing and rarely cancerous. It causes significant pain when the cyst twists.

Complex ovarian cyst, unlike a functional ovarian cyst does not start during the normal function of a menstrual cycle. The cause or causes have not been identified. There are several risk factors known to be associated with its formation:

genetic predisposition
early onset of menstruation (younger than 12 years)
history of irregular menstrual cycles or previous ovarian cysts
obesity or increase in upper body fat
infertility and infertility treatment
tamoxifen (for treatment of breast cancer)
cigarette smoking
