Large blister: Most ovarian cysts are benign and physiologic (meaning part of natural processes and not 'disease' related). A 5.3 cm cyst would be just over 2 inches in greatest size. A common appearance for an ovarian cyst is a thin wall filled with fluid (somewhat simlar to a blister on a toe or heel). Some ovarian cysts can be related to neoplasia / tumor / malignancy. These often have solid coponents.
