What is a Mucinous Cystadenoma?
I know that ovarian tumors are are common to be this, but please don't relate this to that matter because I just need to know what it is. (I am doing a summer assignment for my Pathophysiology class and I need to write down unfamiliar terms and definitions) Any information is great. Thanks!
it is characterized by epithelium-lined cystic masses that contain secreted material, usually serous or mucinous, generally in the ovaries, salivary gland, or pancreas.
mucinous cystadenoma a multilocular, usually benign, tumor produced by ovarian epithelial cells and having mucin-filled cavities.
1. any tumor producing patterns that are both papillary and cystic.
2. a type of adenoma in which the acini are distended by fluids or outgrowths of tissue.
serous cystadenoma a cystic tumor of the ovary with thin, clear yellow serum and some solid tissue. (+ info

have intercourse at 8 - 22 day of your period cycle. Your partner penis should be long enough adn he has to do with high speed and full force during intercourse. find that one. (+ info
Ovarian cysts/mucinous cystadenoma ?
About six months ago I went to the ER and they did a cat-scan on my belly and found a HUGE cyst on my left ovary. While the cyst doesn't cause me any pain it is uncomfortable and needs to be removed.
I've been doing some research on it and from what I have read it's an unusually large type of ovarian cyst. There is a 70% chance of that the cyst is benign and just basically filled with a mucus-like fluid. My OB ran some blood tests to check for cancer and the results all came back negative so I am praying once the cyst is out and sent to the pathologist it will also come back benign. So my question is...has anybody on ever been diagnosed with this type of cyst?
EDIT: I guess I should give a little more detail. My OB asked how my appitite was, as many women who have such large cysts aren't able to eat much. Let me tell you that is NOT the case with me...I eat like a freakin' PIG! Since I don't want to have kids (not a phase, I've known since I was a teenager I don't want kids) my doctor asked how I would feel if they had to do a hestorectomy and I said go for it. Also, because my left ovary is probably damaged, they are going to remove that and possibly my right ovary. Isn't it so weird how such a large cyst can grow inside us?
MORE EDITS: The sh*tty thing is that they can't do laproscopic because of the size of my cyst so they have to cut me wide open. But as long as they get it out, it doesn't matter to me what they gotta do, ya know?
I had the same thing. Cysts on both ovaries though. They did a laproscopic surgery to remove them, and they ended up being filled with old blood and mucus. Gross I know. The tests came out negative before hand, and after. You have nothing to worry about, and you're lucky that it's not painful! You'll be fine, and it's better to take care of now than to wait. You never know what something can turn into. (+ info

According to this article, they are almost always non-cancerous but they can cause complications if they get too big.
Deep breath hun.
Unlike functional ovarian cysts, which develop from variations in the normal function of the ovaries, or endometrial cysts, which are a consequence of endometriosis, or even polycystic ovaries, which result from hormone imbalance, cystadenomas are known as neoplasms, meaning “new growths.” Ovarian neoplasms are new and abnormal formations that develop from the ovarian tissue. Cystadenomas are the most common type.
Cystadenomas are classified according to the type of fluid they contain. A serous cystadenoma is filled with a thin watery fluid and is relatively large, between 2 and 6 inches in diameter. This type most frequently appears in women in their 30s and 40s, but may occur in women between the ages of 20 and 50.
A serous cystadenoma usually causes no specific symptoms, unless it grows to be so large that it results in weight gain and a large abdomen. Generally, these cysts are discovered during a routine gynecological exam. Although considered a benign growth, they do have the potential to become malignant.
A mucinous cystadenoma is filled with a sticky, thick gelatinous material and can become enormous. While most are between 6 and 12 inches in diameter, there have been rare cases of gigantic tumors measuring up to 40 inches and weighing over 100 pounds. Mucinous cystadenomas develop most often in women between the ages of 30 and 50.
Although cystadenomas are almost always benign, complications may develop. If they grow very large, they can interfere with other abdominal organs, disturbing the normal functioning of the stomach, intestines, and bowel. They may also twist, rupture, or bleed. Keep in mind, though, that if you have regular gynecological exams, your doctor would probably discover a cystadenoma long before it could grow to its potentially enormous size. (+ info
please answer "Liver - cancer or not"?
here is MRI result
finding: T1 iso to hypointense mass is present at the liver dome, Internal septation is present on the out of phase sequence, it is hyperintense. compatible with complex cyst with proteinanceous fluid.
Impression: liver dome denign complex cystic w/septation and proteinaceous material, compatible w/ biliary cystadenoma.
Question: Please answer with simple words. Is it cirrhosis? Is it a type of Cancer? Is it just a cyst?
Doesnt sound like cancer to me, liver cancer is almost always a secondary cancer which means it has travelled from another organ. You would see words like metastases and malignancy......... How do i know because my Mum died from kidney cancer that spread to her liver.and i read all her clinical notes. But you need to see your doctor i dont know why you havent already if you have the notes?? (+ info
Help me figure this MRI result out?
CT: Findings Livier is diffusely echogenic w/ fat infiltration. right lob hypoechoic nodule 45x22 x26mm. Through-transmission complex cyst.
MRI: T2 Hyperintense, T1 iso to hypointense mass of liver dome. Internal septation is present. On the out of phase sequence, it is hyperintense. compatible complex cyst containing proteinaceous fluid. compatible with a biliary cystadenoma.
Question: please help me understand all the possibilities. if it normal problem? is it a type of cancer? is it cirrhosis? what is it?
Please don't give difficult answer or tell me to ask my Doctor. of course I will talk to my Doctor. I just want to educate my self.
First, it's important that you tell us why you had the MRI. What were your symptoms?
Diffuse accumulation of fat(fat infiltration) is often an important finding and there are two categories, macro or microvesicular. Macrovesicular is the most common type & it's seen in alcoholism, diabetes, obesity, and pt who require tube feeding. Microvesicular fatty liver is seen in acute fatty liver of pregnancy(AFLP) & occurs when a woman is carrying a male fetus which is usually miscarried. This type of fatty infiltration is also associated with a toxic reaction to valproic acid(depakote) and to tetracycline(antibiotic).
A biliary cystadenoma is considered benign but any complex cyst is considered suspicious/may have malignant potential. The thing that is concerning is that the fluid it contains is not serous(watery/transparent fluid usually found in simple cysts) but was described as proteinaceous(contains protein, usually more dense fluid). Did they aspirate this fluid & analyze it? (+ info
what happens when a cyst bursts?
i was diagnosed 2 days ago with an ovarian cyst (they didn't catagorize it, but i'm sure it's a cystadenoma cyst) that was measured by ultrasound at 5 cm. they said it'll go away with my next cycle, but there's still another week and a half for it to grow and have a party in there, i'm for certain it'll burst before i start. so, when it bursts, i know it's gonna hurt BAD, but what happens with the fluid inside? is it gonna make me sick, or is it just going to get cycled/filtered out? this is the part that scares me. (aside the fact that they use the words "MOST USUALLY these cysts aren't cancerous").
i just want to know what to expect. thank you in advance for your answers
Here is some information. Hope it helps.

Ovarian cyst findings...?
Size of right ovary: 2.4 x 2.3 x 1.4 cm
Left ovary: 6.4 x 6.1 x 3.0 cm
Two large anechoic cystic structures.
Size of cysts:
Cyst 1: 5.9 x 5.0 x 3.3 cm 50.9 cc
Cyst 2: 2.5 x 2.3 x 2.2 cm 6.6 cc
There is no evidence of uterine abnormality. The right ovary is normal in appearance. There is a septated cyst of the left ovary which is mostly unchanged from its appearance on Jan 26. There are no nodules or papillary projections. This is probably a benign ovarian neoplasms
such as a cystadenoma. Follow up is advisable. There is no ascites.
I know this means it is non cancerous, but what else does this means? Are my cysts considered large? What can you tell me from this report?
Doesn't your doctor determine if the cysts are large? That first cyst sounds like it should be removed surgically if it doesn't shrink soon. (+ info
is this a joke or what? cancer question?
Every time I have CT, X-RAy, MRI and/or Ultrasound, I get different results and seems that no one knows what they are talking about. Can you tell me or give me an idea using simple words. (please do not tell me to ask my Doctor or give me any non-sense answer)
Here I go: Mosaic Perfusion, Mosaic Attenuation, Hypoechoic Nodules of Liver, Complex Cyst w/protenaceous liq., Cystadenoma of Biliary, echogenic liver, echogenic kidney, fat infultration, infiltrated liver, benign cyst, 45mm hypoechoic nodules of liver.
It is driving me crazy not knowing what is going on. Of course I have symptoms (chest pain, lower and mid abdomen, lower back, under armpit and under ribcage)
Please just give me your opinion. (can it be cancer? how serious can it be? it is commum symptoms and diagnosis? why radiology use terms that makes things so confused?
On the reports they have to use the medically correct terms. I dont know everything that they are saying, but you should b e able to google each word or look in a medical dictionary to learn its meaning. Then put together what all that means.
The first person is right though, its a lil complicated. But going this way you will learn a lot and hopefully come to a conclusion about what they are saying. (+ info
