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?

I am 26 years old and was recently diagnosed with a 3.8 CM complex ovarian cyst on my right ovary. 3 days later, in mid july, I believe it ruptured because I had hyperacute pain in my lower right abdomen and I can't even throw enough adjectives at you to
Hi.......I have a 3.8 cm hemorrhagic right ovarian cyst. I will be 50 yrs old and not menopausal. Had a hysterectomy 10 yrs ago. What should I do?
Watch it...: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts usually go away on their own without surgical intervention. If it isn't too painful, its usually ok to repeat the u/s in a few months to make sure it is gone. If it is very painful, it can be removed surgically. Best wishes! ...Read more
