A 54-year-old female asked:

l is an ovarion cyst of 1inch in a post -menopausal woman significant when combined with bloating and constipation as an indicator of possible ovarian cancer?

Probably not: A one-inch cyst is unlikely to indicate ovarian cancer. However, it's important to look at the entire picture. For example, has a bowel problem been excluded?

Postmenopausal mass: Yes! it should be removed in that circumstance. Tumor markers should be checked.
