Emergency Room?: Can't think of anything the Emergency Room could do better than the Ob-Gyn doctor. Best to contact one's Ob-Gyn doctor for advice and treatment. The Emergency Room is for emergencies, such as a heart attack, stroke, appendicitis, or bad abdominal pain from a ruptured ovarian cyst. If there are no abdominal pain symptoms nor other bad symptoms, the Ob-Gyn doctor can offer advice, avoiding the E.R. ...Read more

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
I have a complex cyst in my ovary measuring 6.5x8.9x4.5 cm with two nodules with the bigger one measuring 1 cm. Should it be removed and how?
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

Ovarian cyst: If you had the cyst for a while, it may rupture or cause ovarian torsion so surgery would be helpful. If the cyst and little else of the ovary is removed, it shouldn't have any long term effects. Still, using birth control pills afterwards would reduce the risk of other cysts developing. ...Read more
