I'm 35 and have a 9cm fluid-filled ovarian cyst that has not resolved in 6+ months. Doc wants to remove that ovary. Is this the best treatment?

I have 13x10x11 CM simple fluid filled ovarian cyst, normal ca-125 result i dont want to remove my ovary how can i save it? is laparoscopy better?
Could be: I have removed many cysts like this laparoscopically while saving the ovary, but the size you give (13 cm?) is concerning. It is safe to remove this and conserve the ovary if the concern for malignancy is low; you need to discuss this with your doctor/surgeon and good luck. ...Read more

Ask your Doc: Your doc should be able to refer you to the appropriate gyn or simply ask the gyn-onc you saw. It's also possible that your cyst is functional (normal) & will resolve on it's own (no surgery). If it persists or develops concerning features, a laparoscopic cystectomy (remove the cyst only) will preserve your ovary. They may suppress your ovulation with ocps if you are a good candidate, take care. ...Read more
I had a 27cm ovarian cyst filled with reddish brown fluid. What causes a cyst fill with fluid opposed to tissue? What's the difference in symptoms?
Cyst: A cyst by definition is a fluid filled sac. In the ovary you can have solid tumors (benign and cancerous), mixed solid and cystic and just cystic (fluid filled). Each growth is a tissue type, which is the key to what type you get. You probably had a serous (fluid type) cystadenoma or an endometrioma (bloody fluid filled cyst) ...Read more

Can complex fluid filled ovarian cysts become cancerous? Why might there be a bright ring around it on u/s then no ring on f/u u/s? Causing much pain.
Yes it can: Complex cysts can be cancerous depending on their size and rate of growth. A CA125 test can help decide its nature. Ultrasound is a good test to measure increase in size and also may show any solid components inside the cyst. You should get the ultrasound repeated in 3-4 months and have your gynecologist guide you further. You may need surgical removal if it is causing you much pain or increased s ...Read more

Are fluid filled ovarian cysts less likely to be cancerous? I have a simple fluid filled. one, plus a para simple cyst.
Cancer rare: Many women get ovarian cysts during their reproductive years. Most will never develop ovarian cancer. This gland functions to produce eggs.

Usually the sac dissolves, but sometimes remains and fills with air or fluid to develop well defined cyst ...Read more

I have 3 small fibroids and a few small fluid filled ovarian cysts Would switching from Sprintec 28 to Lo Loestrin FE affect the size of the fibroids?
Maybe, maybe not: All oral contraceptive pills contain small amounts of estrogen which can be absorbed by the uterine fibroids and sometimes enhance their enlargement. Some women with fibroids are unaffected by the use of oral contraceptive estrogen and the fibroids show no growth over time. ...Read more

Its saying I have symptoms of ovarian cyst cancer and i've have pain for four years now .Do I have the chance ?
In the past four months I have grown a 5.1cm complex ovarian cyst. Should I be worried at the growth? I have a lot of pain with it!
Usually not serious: It's very common to form ovarian cysts. Sometimes the fluid inside is clear (simple cyst) or the cyst is filled with blood (hemorrhagic cyst). For the most part, they are not dangerous at all. They resolve over time usually. If a hemorrhagic cyst is very big (5cm or more) it can cause discomfort/pain or lead to other bad outcomes (ovarian torsion) which is rare. Cysts rarely require surgery. ...Read more
