MRI (for other purpose) found 3 cm. Ovarian cyst. Post-menopausal, hysterectomy/one ovary. Wasn't felt 4 months ago at gyn exam. Expect follow-up?
Very likely benign: If a pelvic sonogram confirms that your 3 cm ovarian cyst has thin walls, clear fluid, no septation and normal blood flow, it is most probably benign. If you have a personal history or a family history of breast-colon-endometrial-thyroid tumors, have never been pregnant, never used oral contraceptives, have symptoms and risk factors for ovarian tumors...consult a Gyn oncologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Why does my 3.6 CM ovarian cyst hurt? Went to ER & they said to come back if having severe pain (meaning torsion) is bloating/pain really that normal?
Many possiblities: An ovarian cyst hurts due to the pressure of the fluid and the inflammation on the lining of the ovary. This will persist till the body resorbs the fluid. Bloating and sharp pain are normal for a cyst. Sever pain means a significant increase from the pain that took you to the ER in the first place. If your pain has worsened then see a doctor. If it is the same then give it time. ...Read more

A 4.0 * 3.6 * 2.7 CM ovarian cyst is on m right ovary. How big is that? Can it be dangerous during pregnancy?
Quite common: It is quite common to have an ovarian cyst in pregnancy. Really the only way a cyst can be dangerous to your pregnancy is if it twists on itself (torsion) and requires surgical removal during the pregnancy.
