The presence of these cysts on ultrasound usually predicts higher stage disease ( 3or4) and needs advanced surgical excision. ...Read more

How many percentage of chances is there in chocolate cyst to shrink within itself only by avoiding food that boost up estrogen in our body ?

No Chances of Shrink: Chocolate cysts are endometriosis cysts on the ovary. There are no drugs or diet changes that will make those go away.

Surgery is the only way to make the cyst disappear and even with surgery, there is a 15-20% chance the cyst will re-form. ...Read more

This can potentially quiet down any active endometriosis. ...Read more
