If you had a large right ovarian cyst and you got rid of it could it come back?

If you had a large right ovarian cyst and you got rid of it could it come back?

Sadly, yes: The ovary can grow a cyst at any time, and having had one cyst does put you at increased risk for developing another. This isn't to say that you are at increased risk for cancer, only for making cysts. Likely the doctors removed the cyst wall from the ovary, and that helps to prevent a recurrence. I hope you are cyst free! ...Read more

I have a ovarian cysts that is causing a lot of pain doctor has said he will refer me to get it drained when its drained can it come back?

Depends what it is: If it is a functional cyst it likely will not come back although it could, if it is not functional (endometrioma, inclusion cyst, benign tumor etc....) they will recur about 85%-100% of the time. It's important to have at least a very good guess what it "is" before draining. ...Read more

Why does my 3.6 CM ovarian cyst hurt? Went to ER & they said to come back if having severe pain (meaning torsion) is bloating/pain really that normal?

Why does my 3.6 CM ovarian cyst hurt? Went to ER & they said to come back if having severe pain (meaning torsion) is bloating/pain really that normal?

Many possiblities: An ovarian cyst hurts due to the pressure of the fluid and the inflammation on the lining of the ovary. This will persist till the body resorbs the fluid. Bloating and sharp pain are normal for a cyst. Sever pain means a significant increase from the pain that took you to the ER in the first place. If your pain has worsened then see a doctor. If it is the same then give it time. ...Read more

If you are having vague symptoms of fatigue and body aches you need to be seen by a doctor and evaluated. This is unlikely to be related to your surgery two years ago.
