Must seek med-examin: If you have a large cyst and have symptoms that suggest that it could be cancerous, you need immediate medical attention. Go see a doctor who can check you, advise further testing and offer appropriate treatment. A gynecologist may be most helpful but any PCP can help you to obtain better medical examination, proper diagnosis and possible removal of your ovarian cyst.
