I have 2 septated cysts in keft ovary one which is 2.3/2.1./2 CM and the othet 1.3/2.5/1.5 CM should I be worried?
Not likely: Ovarian cysts are exceedingly common and usually benign. The size you indicate (about 1 inch) is well within the range for normal ovaries. Your doctor can recheck the ovaries in 4 to 6 weeks. If the cysts are normal they will be changing and over time will go away, but be repaced with more cysts. If the cysts are not normal, they will continue to enlarge and would eventually require treatment. ...Read more

Recommend excision: Complex cysts should be surgically removed in the large majority of cases as the concern is whether the cyst is benign or malignant. The large majority are benign but there aren't any good tests to make that determination without actually removing the cyst. You should consult a gynecologist and he or she may refer you to a GYN oncologist to do the surgery. A laparoscopy may be appropriate. ...Read more

That's fairly large: And in most cases they would consider removing it if symptomatic. However, they could follow it for a couple of years to see if it is changing and whether you are having symptoms before deciding whether to remove. If they would have to remove the entire ovary and you want children, they would be less likely to want to operate. At any rate, it would be your decision to make. Good luck! ...Read more
