does anyone of u can discuss with me about "Physiologic cyst"

  1. Dear Pals,

    My mom had her radical mastectomy when i was 4 yrs. old (i'm turning 21 now this May 3) and we just found out that she's having a CA again but not on her breast this time but on her uterus. a 2.3cm cyst was revealed on her utz. but the OB can hardly explain to us where it came from. i know CA had recurrences, maybe i should consider this one as a recurrence. I just like to gather more information about that Physiologic thing on her uterus. Can it be melt by just taking drugs like GNLD products? or is a possible candidate for hysterectomy?

    if it is CA - it is not physiologic - it is pathologic......??? and unfortunately - CA does come back - and migrates....sorry to hear that your mom has to go through it again.

    I don't think I understand the scenario. The cyst has been found to have malignant cells? Do they feel confident it was very isolated? What was the recomended treatment regimen?

    Is it a cyst or a mass? Difference being that the cyst is a fluid sac, and the mass is usually solid. Have they done a biopsy of the "cyst" to see what type of cells that it is comprised of? It could be a metastasis of the primary cancer that was in her breast, or actually something completely different. They won't be able to make an exact diagnosis without a biopsy, at the very minimum.........................

    Hope that this helps......................
