Laparoscopy: With ovarian cysts there is always a good chance that they resolve on their own and it may make sense to buy some time with pain medication. I don't see this happen with a paratubal cyst. A laparoscopy would help to sort things out: ovarian cyst versus paratubal cyst versus hydrosalpinx.

I have suggestive paratubal cyst measuring of 1.82x1.54 cm is it serious or not, can I still have a chance to get pregnant even if I have this?

I have suggestive paratubal cyst measuring of 1.82x1.54 cm is it serious or not, can I still have a chance to get pregnant even if I have this?

Probably not but...: That's actually a very small cyst. If it's truly a paratubal cyst then nothing to worry about. I would suggest that you have a hysterosalpingogram (HSG or tube test) done. Sometimes a damaged tube can look like a paratubal cyst. Damaged fallopian tubes would require consultation with an infertility specialist to go over your options.

Wait for the results: Any tissue removed in a surgical procedure should be sent to a pathologist for evaluation. Your doctor did not send it because s/he thinks there is any reason to be concerned, but because the right thing to do.

What causes ganglion cysts to get bigger?

What causes ganglion cysts to get bigger?

Synovial fluid: Fills ganglion cysts. These cysts are fluid filled sacs and synovial fluid is what lubricates the joint, fluid enters the cyst through a tiny attachment from the joint and makes the cyst large. This is why activity or force seemingly makes the ganglion larger as more pressure in the joint leaks into the cyst. Typically it's a like one way valve into the cyst but they can drain back spontaneously.
