Talk to your Dr: Large ovarian cysts are not to be taken lightly. If it truly was from the stimulation then despite its size it mighty go away on its own. Suppression with ocs or progestins might be of benefit. At that size however, a cystectomy might be needed if the suppression and time fail. If surgery is needed, it can hopefully be done laparoscopically (mis) to make recovery easier and decrease scar potential. ...Read more

I have a 5.9 cm simple ovarian cyst. I have no pain or symptoms. I was told if it grows it might need surgery? What is the danger if it grows?

I have a 5.9 cm simple ovarian cyst. I have no pain or symptoms. I was told if it grows it might need surgery? What is the danger if it grows?

Important: First, are you 47 years old? I mean no offense but 50% of ages given on HealthTap are untrue. If 47 is correct the risks are torsion (twisting) and rupture. Any cyst larger than 6 cm. Is a significant risk for these, both of which require emergency surgery. AT age 47 the chance of cancer, while not terribly high, is still plausible. Hence, needs removal. Good wishes. ...Read more

Can an ovarian cyst of this size (10 cm), eventually resolve itself?

Can an ovarian cyst of this size (10 cm), eventually resolve itself?

EXTREMELY unlikely: I would almost say 100% no. That size of a cyst is too large to resolve itself, and should be removed surgically, due to the risks of it being a tumor (need to rule out malignancy) and due to the risk of torsion (where the ovary twists around it's artery and vein, cuts off the blood supply to it and causes severe pain). Sorry, but you really need to have surgery to remove it. ...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.

My daughter is 15 and has an ovarian cyst she has been in severe pain for 9 days now...Cyst is 2.5 cm. How long till it disolves or pops. The pain is?

No specific time: How do you know your daughter has a cyst? Was it diagnosed by ultrasound? Many cysts resolve by themselves, especially if it is a follicular cyst. However, if it is hemorragic or there are multiple cysts, it may not resolve without hormonal therapy (i.e. Birth control pills). I would go see your daughter's pediatrician or a gynecologist to have the cyst and pain further evaluated. ...Read more

Hi my ovarian cyst size is 6.8 CM in size. Kindly suggest is it possible to cure by nonsugical.?

Depends: Your cyst can be followed if it's a simple cyst without any features that are worrisome for malignancy. If there are multiple septations, thickened membranes, nodules, irregular sides, etc; you should have a surgical procedure to rule out pre-malignant or malignant tissue. Also, this size can occasionally torse (twist) & can cause severe pain. Talk to your doc re: your cysts characteristics. ...Read more
