I had a surgery to remove ovarian cyst 2yrs ago. But now when I cough especially, I feel pain on the incision. Is this normal?

Get it looked at: Very hard to make a diagnosis over the internet. It could be some residual incisional pain though 2 years is a long time. However, on possibility could be a hernia at the site of surgery. This can be determined fairly easily but will require a physical exam. Go see your doctor. ...Read more

Doc said I hv an ovarian cyst measuring abt 7x6x5 n need surgery. But is it possible if I don't want surgery? Cz im quite busy atm

You need surgery: You have a large cyst. Most cyst at your age are benign. However they can become very large and depending on the surgeon you my end up with a huge scar. Also cyst this size can twist on its pedicle (torsion). This is a surgical emergency. You might have a serous or mucinous-cysadenoma, or a dermoid cyst. Ultrasound should help to give clue what he is dealing with. I would favor laparoscopic surger. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and they said its starting to leak if I get surgery what are the chances in having a child?

Likely very good: At the time of ovulation, there will always be a cyst about an inch in diameter. That cyst will rupture (and leak) to release the egg, which could be fertilized if you are sexually active and without protection. After ovulation the cyst may enlarge up to 3 or 4 inches, and still be normal. Before having surgery for an ovarian cyst, see your gynecologist, most ovarian cysts do not require surgery. ...Read more

I have a ovarian cyst on right side. Causing pain that I was admitted for pain control. Will they remove it with surgery or let it pop?

Depend on size/cause: There are many different ways to manage ovarian cysts. The only time an ovarian cyst should be removed surgically is if it's too big and poses a risk of twisting on itself (torsion), if it is suspicious for a malignancy, or if it causes chronic pain for several months. It will not "pop" necessarily, some do, but the pain will resolve and the cyst heals over time. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with 5.2 CM ovarian cyst. It doesn't cause me problems, I didn't even know that before the ultrasound. Is surgery necessary?

Cysts will resolve: Small cysts on the ovary are very common. The overwhelming majority will resolve on their own without surgery. Although they may hurt the best treatment is to take Ibuprofen for the pain and to wait to see if it goes away. Usually obgyns will repeat the sonogram 6-8 weeks later to confirm the cyst has resolved. ...Read more

Are there medications other than surgery to decrease the size of large benign 13 CM simple ovarian cyst or at least prevent it from getting bigger?

Are there medications other than surgery to decrease the size of large benign 13 CM simple ovarian cyst or at least prevent it from getting bigger?

No: There are many reasons a 13 cm cyst needs to be removed by surgery: unknown type, rupture, torsion, ... often the cyst can be removed without removing the ovary. It would be w-a-y outside standard of care (at least in the US) to "observe" this rather than remove. If it hasn't been removed for tissue, how do you really know it's benign? ...Read more

Found an ovarian cyst, 5cm. There's nothing 3 mts ago- growing quickly. Thick wall. Possibly chocolate, doc said. Any ways to ease pain? Need surgery?

Surgery: If doctor thinks you have a chocolate cyst (endometriosis), then the best thing is surgery. These don't go away on their own and the endometriosis can cause scarring and more problems in the pelvis (and sometimes infertility). I would recommend a laparoscopic cystectomy (removal of cyst only, not ovary). This is minimally invasive and could prevent future problems. ...Read more

Had an ultrasound in July confirmed 6cm ovarian cyst. Had surgery oct 11th no cyst found. Why surgery? Why did they not check b4? Unnessesary surgery?

Most likely: Ovarian cysts are common findings. Most cysts are 'simple' (benign appearing). Studies show than most cysts will resolve with time and surgery is not necessary, even for cysts as large as 10 cm. Unless a woman is having symptoms such as pain suggestive of ovarian torsion, most cyst may be manage with serial ultrasound every 3-6 months to evaluate for resolution or increase in size. ...Read more
