Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired.

Possibly: Ovarian cysts are common and usually resolve without treatment. Removal may be considered if it persists, enlarges, twists, is painful, has a worrisome appearance, or is very bothersome. 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?

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

Probably yes.: 7 cm is pretty large, a cyst this big could certainly cause pain. It could suddenly twist or burst, resulting in emergency surgery. Probably not a cancer. It could likely be removed using a laparoscope, resulting in small incisions. The sooner it is removed the better. Read more

My 16 yr old daughter found out today that she has a 7 CM ovarian cyst. (on the pill) she can barely move from the pain! What do we do?

My 16 yr old daughter found out today that she has a 7 CM ovarian cyst. (on the pill) she can barely move from the pain! What do we do?

See gynecologist!: 7 cm cysts are usually benign but may need surgery due to size. Pain can be due to "torsion" or twisting of the blood supply to the ovary, risking the health of that ovary. The pain can be from the size of the ovary or partial rupture. Surgery does not necessarily require removal of the ovary but could be only removal of the cyst. Read more
