Not unless symptoms: If you aren't having symptoms from your "diagnosis" (compression of the cecum) then chances are that the finding is benign. It could have been from the ovarian cyst. (Once you reach menopause, ovarian cysts are rare & should be followed but at your age, understandable). It could have been from scarring. In any case, absent blood or constipation, it's not causing any harm and scans are neg. So relx
