Mumbai: A team led by Dr Rajashri Tayshete Bhasale removed 16 cm and 2 kgs of the dermoid ovarian cyst from a 28-year-old woman who is a resident of Mira Road. The patient has been discharged from the hospital and is leading a normal life.
Patient Ms Nisha Shah (name changed), IT professional, went to Kerala on a vacation. She opted for a massage wherein she came to know about the cyst. She didn’t have any complaints such as abdominal pain. However, the patient was referred to Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road, and received timely treatment.
Dr Rajashri Tayshete Bhasale, Consultant Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, Laparoscopic Surgeon, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said, “Clinical examination and investigations revealed a dermoid ovarian cyst of 16cm size. An ovarian dermoid cyst is a fluid-filled sac having tissue from your hair, skin, sweat glands, nerves, teeth, or other things like bones. Dermoid cysts of the ovary are not uncommon. This patient had a huge dermoid with elements like sebaceous material, hair, teeth, bones, skin and cartilage making it challenging to remove by laparoscopic surgery.”
Dr Rajashri Tayshete Bhasale added “We did three port Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy keeping in mind to preserve ovaries for future fertility. Cystectomy was done and the specimen was delivered through a small incision. Post-surgery patient was discharged on day 2 of surgery. It was important to treat her at the right time as this could have led to complications like torsion of ovary and thus compromising fertility.”
“I was in a shock when I came to know about the dermoid cyst. I wasn’t aware of this type of cyst. Fortunately, I was managed promptly by the team of doctors at Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road. I thank the doctors for their round-the-clock care and treatment,” concluded Nisha Shah (Name Changed)
