I have a lot of pelvic pain, and bleeding for 3 weeks. I just found out I have a 3cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary. What is my doctor likely to do?

I have a lot of pelvic pain, and bleeding for 3 weeks.  I just found out I have a 3cm ovarian cyst on my right ovary.  What is my doctor likely to do?

Pelvic Pain: The cyst on your ovary and your pelvic pain and bleeding are unlikely to be related. The cyst you have is likely a follicular cyst and an incidental finding, and will resolve. More concerning is the pelvic pain and bleeding, which could be due to an infection. Hopefully your doctor has looked at this as a possible issue. ...Read more

Hi I was told I had about 2.5 -3cm collapsed ovarian cyst which is very painful  , what do I need to watch out for? And   Will it heal on its own?

Healing in progress: If you can stand the discomfort of the collapsed ovarian cyst, then with the egress of the fluid contained therein, healing has already begun. The fluid on the lining of the body cavity(peritoneum) may be the source of your pain so if needed talk to your MD about Rx suggestions. ...Read more

I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst.  At what point/size should it be surgically removed.  I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.

It depends: Good evening, It appears that you already follow with GYN, so they should be able to tell you when the cyst should be removed. Many times, the cyst is monitored every 6 months to a year for interval increase in size. If the size remains stable over time, there is no need for intervention. Good luck. ...Read more

Diagnosed with 3cm complex ovarian cyst via ultrasound. Advised to wait 6 weeks to recheck. Safe to wait even with a family history of female cancers?

Diagnosed with 3cm complex ovarian cyst via ultrasound. Advised to wait 6 weeks to recheck. Safe to wait even with a family history of female cancers?

Probablyl: Depending on the appearance of the cyst, your doctor must have felt that it was safe. Not all female cancers are genetically related (so, for ex: if you family has a history of cervical cancer that does not increase the risk for ovarian cancer). The ova-1 test or ca-125 tests can help to see if your cyst is higher or lower risk to be a cancer. But there are lots of cysts that are not cancers. ...Read more
