A 43-year-old member asked:
Help please! is an ovarian cyst that is 4.4 by 4.5cm considered big?
1 doctor answer • 3 doctors weighed in
Medium-sized: It is larger than normal, physiologic cysts that develop every month and may be a cause of pain. That size, if simple cyst- should resolve spontaneously (there is a high chance it will go away on it's own, and not require surgery).

A little big: Around ovulation, the follicle measures around 2 cm, so this is a little bigger. It's not so big, though, that it can't be watched. It will likely resolve on its own.

Ovarian cyst: No. At that small size, it is still most likely a physiologic cyst.
