My wife had a chocolate cyst of. 5mm in her left ovary. Is it cure by medicine or it should get operations.

She is suffering from endometriosis that's why chocolate cyst. If there is a more than 3 cm chocolate cyst on ultrasound then it needs to be removed with laparoscopy. After surgery, depending on the severity of endometriosis, monthly injection will be given for 4-6 months to stop further increase in your symptoms of endometriosis. Sometimes hemorrhagic cysts are mistaken for chocolate cyst so better get another sonography after next menses to confirm before you take final decision.

Ear Ache in Adults

Ear aches are a very painful condition, which tends to affect mostly children. However, adults can be affected by ear aches as well, which can disrupt their routines and be quite painful. Let's have a look at some of the aspects of ear aches in adults.

Causes of ar aches in adults
There are many causes for ear aches in adults and it may vary from one person to another. However some general causes of ear aches in adults are listed below:

Infections within the body: If you have a throat infection or cold, it could trigger an ear ache as a side effect. Treating the underlying problems will, thus reduce the ear ache or it will go on its own when the symptoms of the cold subside.
Ear canal injury: Adults are most often guilty of putting in sharp objects to clean their ear canal, which may result in an injury and also lead to infections. These injuries can also be infected and cause fluid discharge and ear aches.
Blockages caused by the regular use of ear buds: Using ear buds or other sharp objects to clean the ear will only result in pushing the ear wax further into the ear. This will result in blockages of the ear canal and cause ear aches.
Dental problems: Certain dental problems, such as wisdom tooth growth can result in problems. Even gum disorders have been known to create ear aches in adults.
Jaw pain and facial pain: Jaw pain and even facial nerve pain has been known to affect ears and cause aches as well.

Symptoms that may accompany ear aches
Depending on what the causes of the ear aches are, the symptoms may vary. Still, let's have a look at some of the known common symptoms of ear aches in adults:

Irritability and lack of focus: Ear aches may initially manifest as a headache and make the person irritable.
Poor sleep: Fluids may build up within the body and thus cause issues while sleeping as the fluids may shift from one area to another.
Ear drainage: If in case fluids build up, they may drain from your ear, which could vary anywhere within yellow to dark brown colour. This may even indicate that your eardrum is ruptured.
Hearing problems: Fluid buildup or other underlying causes may also cause hearing difficulties.
Fever: Sometimes, fever may run as high as 104 degree C due the very infections, which may be causing the ear ache.

Whatever may be the cause, if you have ear aches for sustained periods without underlying reasons, you should visit your doctor immediately to get it checked out, so that appropriate treatment can start quickly.

All women with PCOD are not overweight. The diagnosis of PCO is made by a combination of Ultrasound features of ovaries together with deranged hormonal profile and other features like irregular periods, facial hair, acne . Treatment will depend on the type of symptoms you are having and your blood test results.

Want to conceive baby but have ovarian cyst.
Previous history- laproscopy done before four years. Please advise.
If you and your partner are planning to conceive, you should start taking folic acid before you get pregnant. Folic acid helps to provide the best health outcomes for your baby when it is growing. Taking folic acid daily before and during pregnancy also prevents the occurrence of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in your baby. You're most likely to get pregnant if you have sex within a day or so of ovulation (releasing an egg from the ovary). This is usually about 14 days after the first day of your last period. An egg lives for about 12-24 hours after it?s released. For pregnancy to happen, the egg must be fertilised by a sperm within this time. If you want to get pregnant, having sex every couple of days will mean there?s always sperm waiting in the fallopian tubes to meet the egg when it?s released. any queries consult privately
