“Mucinous Cystadenoma” is a benign cystic tumor lined by a mucinous epithelium. It is a type of cystic adenoma (cystadenoma). “Salpingitis” is inflammation of the Fallopian Tubes due to bacterial infection.
Benign mucinous cystadenomas account for 80%of ovarian mucinous tumors. Mucinous cystadenomas of the ovary occur mainly during the third to sixth decades, but they may also occur in younger women. They are unilateral in 95% of the cases.
CA125 is a protein that is a so-called tumor marker or biomarker, a substance found in greater concentration in tumor cells than in other cells of the body. In particular, CA125 is present in greater concentration in ovarian cancer cells than in other cells. It was first identified in the early 1980s. CA stands for cancer antigen and it is measured as a blood test.
First consultation on April 13th, 2020
The patient, 27 years old, came to me with complaints of health anxiety, left low abdominal pain (worse at night), alopecia (5 years), and eczema.
On April 5th, 2020: Pelvic Scan was completed, with results suggestive of endometrioma – but need to rule out the dermoid cyst.
On the same day Pelvic MRI was completed, with results of: Left ovarian cyst (6cm) first suggestive of mucinous cystadenoma, bilateral salpingitis (high suspicion of bilateral hydrosalpinx), and pelvic inflammatory syndrome.
The patient took antibiotics for 7 days.
Subjective view of Patient’s Health History:
“After weeks of acute abdominal pain, just last week was I diagnosed with a 5cm x 7cm mucinous cystadenoma (borderline tumor) in the left ovary, and full damage to the right tube, and partial inflammation/damage to the left tube. My CA 125 Marker was 605, which is high.
I was advised to wait 6 weeks and get tests redone. They said a laparotomy would have to be done to remove this type of cystadenoma, especially if we find there is a higher risk of cancer.
They said if the damage is enough in both tubes, they’d advise to remove them during this procedure, and if the cystadenoma has grown to fit the whole ovary, that they might have to remove the left ovary completely.”
Repertorization of symptoms:
Pulsatilla 200 CH was prescribed in diluted form for 1 month.
Second consultation on May 16th, 2020
Appetite and sleep have improved, mood and energy levels are better, but anxiety about health is still there. Left low abdominal pain is almost gone. “I don’t feel pain, but feel the cyst.”
While taking Pulsatilla, patient developed acne and boils on her face and herpetic rash on nasal alae (old symptom, which disappears after a few days).
Repertorization of symptoms:
Natrium muriaticum 200 ch was given in water solution for 4 weeks.
On 8th of June 2020, I got an SMS from my patient: “A miracle happened! I went to the doctor yesterday and got an ultrasound of my reproductive system again, and my mucinous cystadenoma is COMPLETELY gone AND my tubes are all intact and healthy again!! I am so happy and the doctor said she had never seen anything like this before in her career. Wanted to say thank you!! ”
Then we waited one day for the CA125 result and were very delighted to know that her CA125 tumor marker came back to normal at a normal level from 604.70U/mL to 19.8U/mL
Pelvic scan. Right adnexa is normal
Left adnexa is normal
The pelvic scan was normal, so there was no need to do a planned MRI.
Third consultation on June 2th, 2020
While the patient was on Natrium muruaticum she got boils and folliculitis on and off on her body. Now boils disappeared from hands and legs. Still, she has eczema on her right ankle, itchy and dry. Alopecia became worse 4-5cm. At first, 10 days on Natrium muriaticum patient had mood swings, PMS. Then, later mood became better, especially after news about normal scan and normal levels of CA 125.
Based on symptoms – keynotes: sighing, the sensation of a lump in her throat, crying easily when alone, the patient was given Ignatia Amara 200 CH in diluted form for one month.
After one month on phone, she informed me that she is feeling much better, her alopecia is smaller now and eczema was almost gone.
This case had shown the great ability of homeopathic treatment in borderline cystadenomas with very high levels of CA125. In less than 2 months homeopathy brought full cure and restored healthy ovary, tubes, and normalized levels of CA125.
