Myoma is an abnormal cell growth or called a tumor that grows in the area around the uterus in most cases this myoma is not malignant. While a cyst is an abnormal cell growth or tumor that contains water or fluid in the sac that can grow anywhere in the body including the female reproductive organs as happened to your mother.

In addition to surgical removal of the tumor, biopsy is usually also necessary. Biopsy is an examination by taking a small sample of tissue which is then examined by a specialist in anatomic pathology, to find out more the contents or content of myoma tumor cells and cysts that occur in your mother. A biopsy will certainly confirm or be called a gold standard "gold standard" to find out whether the types of cells that grow on myoma and cysts are benign or malignant cells.
Of course, if the results of the examination are benign tumors usually there is no specific next step that needs to be done, and the possibility of spreading and growing back is also smaller compared to malignant tumors. In general, if what is found is a myoma is not malignant. However, for this type of cyst it is necessary to ascertain whether the type is malignant or benign examination with the help of a biopsy.
But if what is found in the biopsy is malignant cells or cancer, of course the doctor needs to follow up. Because the treatment of cancer or malignant cells is usually not just surgery, it is also necessary to carry out further examinations such as PET scan to determine whether cancer is found, or further treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
