Oftentimes the discomfort women feel may not be caused by a cyst so be sure that the cyst is the cause of your pain. Birth control pills can be helpful to prevent future cysts. ...Read more

Should a 7 CM ovarian cyst that is causting severe pain (16 yr old daughter can barely move) be removed? How soon?
