I've been told i hv a complex ovarian cyst and multiple fibroids some of which r calcified. D fibroids r inside and outside my uterus. Should i worry?
More information: More information is needed to adequately address your question. Complex ovarian masses in 31 year olds, are typically benign, but your doctor knows your history and can give you expert opinion on that mass. Calcification of fibroids is normal and is not a sign of malignancy. Fibroids can be inside of uterus and on outside of uterus, location can affect fertility, bleeding and pain.

Ultrasound: Ovarian cysts are best evaluated by transvaginal ultrasound. If you are young and have periods, most cysts are ok, though they may grow large and rupture and cause pain. If you have gone through menopause, ovarian cysts need to be followed more closely, since they may be cancer. Pelvic MRI is helpful in evaluating persistent cysts or cysts which may partially contain solid tissue. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Depends on factors: A simple cyst is very common and often detected on routine pelvic or ultrasound exam and might disappear by the next exam. The more complex ones need further evaluation so doctors can determine the significance of cysts based their size, structure, timing with regard to period and to menopause, etc. Because not all cysts are normal, i'll share this with specialists in onc for their perspective.. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Follow up 1 cycle: The cysts are probably unimportant incidental findings - "ovaries make cysts for a living" - but 36 mm is significantly larger than expected in a normal cycle. If you took prescription fertility meds, this "might" explain. Not to worry, but after your next period you should have the cysts checked with ultrasound: 95% of these should go away in 1-3 cycles. If not, you may need other intervention. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Ovarian cyst: Ovarian cysts can occur spontaneously in women, and will usually regress. If you have a persistent cyst for 3 months it should be checked out especially if a sonogram shows a solid component to the cyst.

Using bcp's will prevent cysts if you're prone to them. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Cysts are: But a 7cm ovarain cyst is relatively large and m,ay cause some pain, etc. Have the cyst followed regularly by the OB/GYN Dr/surgeon and it may need to come out, especially if it causes you pain and or has the possibility to become "torsed" where it would then require emergency surgery.

Patience vs. Surgery: Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks. Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences. If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
