Hi doctor I have a 10 cm multilocular ovarian cyst.  doctors say laparatomy and laparascopy  are both good but their preferances are diffrent?

Laparoscopy: Each doctor has his/her own skill set and comfort level with different types of procedures. Without seeing the pictures its not possible to make a recommendation.

Can an ovarian cyst of this size (10 cm), eventually resolve itself?

Can an ovarian cyst of this size (10 cm), eventually resolve itself?

EXTREMELY unlikely: I would almost say 100% no. That size of a cyst is too large to resolve itself, and should be removed surgically, due to the risks of it being a tumor (need to rule out malignancy) and due to the risk of torsion (where the ovary twists around it's artery and vein, cuts off the blood supply to it and causes severe pain). Sorry, but you really need to have surgery to remove it. ...Read more

How long is it normal to wait for surgery  to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?

Depends: Their is not a specific amount of time. This usually would not need to be performed immediately. If you have pain, an elevated CA-125, a family history of ovarian cancer or some other concerning feature then that would increase the urgency. Regardless, I would not wait to long. Several weeks would not be uncommon depending on the surgeon's and hospital's schedule. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can a 5 CM ovarian cyst resolve itself?

Probably: If the cyst is simple and 5cm in size, then yes - good chance it may go away on it's own. Larger than 7cm, and it is much much less likely that it can resolve on it's own. A follow-up sonogram in 6 weeks can tell if it is going away. ...Read more
