Yes, they do: If your cyst has not grown in size over 10 months it is unlikely to be ovarian Cancer. Yet you must follow up on it once or twice a year to be sure that it does not increase in size....which could imply a potential Ovarian cancer. Your gynecologist can guide you as to how it is monitored properly.
