What is normally done for 7 cm ovarian cyst causing extreme bouts of pain.?

What is normally done for 7 cm ovarian cyst causing extreme bouts of pain.?

How much pain?: I will depend upon how severe the pain is and whether it is tolerable by you or not. Severe pain usually requires Laparoscopy after ultrasonography confirms the cyst's presence to resolve the pain with aspiration or removal of the ovary. Oral contraceptives are often the non surgical approach to cyst resolution if pain is not a factor. ...Read more

I have a 4.7 CM ovarian cyst, very painful! It was found TWO years ago at 3 cm. Should I have this removed? What is the procedure to remove it?

Ovarian Cyst: Most ovarian cysts, even larger ones, will usually resolve spontaneously in younger women. However, if it is very painful for you, you can have it removed by laparoscopic surgery. A camera is placed into the abdomen and it is removed through a tiny incision. It is an outpatient procedure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Possibly: Ovarian cysts are common and usually resolve without treatment. Removal may be considered if it persists, enlarges, twists, is painful, has a worrisome appearance, or is very bothersome. Oftentimes the discomfort women feel may not be caused by a cyst so be sure that the cyst is the cause of your pain. Birth control pills can be helpful to prevent future cysts. ...Read more

Should a 7 CM ovarian cyst that is causting severe pain (16 yr old daughter can barely move) be removed? How soon?

Probably yes.: 7 cm is pretty large, a cyst this big could certainly cause pain. It could suddenly twist or burst, resulting in emergency surgery. Probably not a cancer. It could likely be removed using a laparoscope, resulting in small incisions. The sooner it is removed the better. ...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. Most cysts that undergo torsion are significantly larger than yours. If you have no symptoms of pain, I would not worry at this time. If pain develops talk to you primary ob. ...Read more

My 16 yr old daughter found out today that she has a 7 CM ovarian cyst. (on the pill) she can barely move from the pain! What do we do?

See gynecologist!: 7 cm cysts are usually benign but may need surgery due to size. Pain can be due to "torsion" or twisting of the blood supply to the ovary, risking the health of that ovary. The pain can be from the size of the ovary or partial rupture. Surgery does not necessarily require removal of the ovary but could be only removal of the cyst. ...Read more

7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

7 CM ovarian cyst, ca-125 levels elevated (48), roma score & all blood tests good. Previously had nasopharyngeal cancer. Recurrence or endometrioma?

Likely endometrioma: At your age, ovarian cancer would be exceedingly rare. Ca-125 levels can be elevated in young women for a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with cancer. Nasopharyngeal cancer and ovarian have no relation to each other. Your doctor should tell you what features or characteristics the ovarian cyst has, this will tell you what kind of cyst it is. Good luck! ...Read more

Simple Cyst: Although in healthy reproductive aged women, ovarian cysts usually are less than 5cm in diameter, if it is a little bigger (like yours), it is probably nothing to worry about.

I'm 19 years old with 7.7x7.7x5.8 cm ovarian cyst that is predominantly anechoic with a single septation. What does this mean?

Follow up needed: Anechoic is an ultrasound term which means simple and usually benign. Hypoechoic is usually more complex and could be more worrisome. Your finding based on us and age are likely benign. However, because of the size you have an increased risk of ovarian torsion. I would definitely recommend follow up with your gynecologist for a rpt us in 6wks versus laparoscopic cystectomy ...Read more

Wait: Cysts come and go with your cycle. While 4.7 cm is a little larger than usual it is not big enough to be of concern. As long as it is a simple cyst and unless it is somehow symptomatic, you do not need to do anything. If you are worried, recheck it after a couple of cycles. ...Read more
