Are there medications other than surgery to decrease the size of large benign 13 CM simple ovarian cyst or at least prevent it from getting bigger?

No: There are many reasons a 13 cm cyst needs to be removed by surgery: unknown type, rupture, torsion, ... often the cyst can be removed without removing the ovary. It would be w-a-y outside standard of care (at least in the US) to "observe" this rather than remove. If it hasn't been removed for tissue, how do you really know it's benign? ...Read more

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 much pain?: I will depend upon how severe the pain is and whether it is tolerable by you or not.

Oral contraceptives are often the non surgical approach to cyst resolution if pain is not a factor. ...Read more

I have a 4.7 CM ovarian cyst, very painful! It was found TWO years ago at 3 cm. Should I have this removed? What is the procedure to remove it?

Ovarian Cyst: Most ovarian cysts, even larger ones, will usually resolve spontaneously in younger women. However, if it is very painful for you, you can have it removed by laparoscopic surgery. A camera is placed into the abdomen and it is removed through a tiny incision. It is an outpatient procedure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

4 1/2 CM ovarian cyst, what will the doctors do?

4 1/2 CM ovarian cyst, what will the doctors do?

At that size, many of these cysts do resolve on their own, considering, of course, that they are simple and filled with solely fluid. Having said that, if the cyst is causing twisting of the ovary, if there's severe pain, then doctor might have other recommendations. ...Read more

Hi my ovarian cyst size is 6.8 CM in size. Kindly suggest is it possible to cure by nonsugical.?

Depends: Your cyst can be followed if it's a simple cyst without any features that are worrisome for malignancy. If there are multiple septations, thickened membranes, nodules, irregular sides, etc; you should have a surgical procedure to rule out pre-malignant or malignant tissue. Also, this size can occasionally torse (twist) & can cause severe pain. Talk to your doc re: your cysts characteristics. ...Read more

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

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
