Depends on the cysts: Ovarian cysts can have many different characteristics. If they are growing in size and/or have complex or solid components further evaluation should be considered. Sometimes a blood test can help with surgical decision making.

Asymptomatic hetetozygous factor V leiden is considered low-risk for VTE. Thus,the prophylactic anticoagulation use should be based sorely on the VTE risk associated with surgical procedure. Homozygous factor V leiden is considered high risk. Prophylactic anticoagulation is highly recommended.
