Ultrasound: If you are concerned about the presence of the cyst the Gynecologist saw at the hysterectomy, you can get an ultrasound done to check for the presence or absence of the cyst. Do you have family history of ovarian cancer? You are too young to get your ovaries removed. Surgical menopause at this young age is not recommended. Symptoms of ovarian cancer are vague and can be from colon or stomach too.
