How many percentage of chances is there in chocolate cyst to shrink within itself only by avoiding food that boost up estrogen in our body?
No Chances of Shrink: Chocolate cysts are endometriosis cysts on the ovary. There are no drugs or diet changes that will make those go away. Based on the way they form, they can't really decrease in size - only increase over time. Surgery is the only way to make the cyst disappear and even with surgery, there is a 15-20% chance the cyst will re-form. ...Read more
Hello. Am 28 years old and I had chocolate cyst that have been removed by a surgery last july. However a month later after it, I developed cysts again?
Not usual: Ovarian cysts form every month in healthy young women. Normal ovaries may be filled with small cysts (known as functional cysts). Once in a while, a cyst will become large and may cause pain due to pressure on surrounding tissues. Many ovarian cysts resolve on their own in 3-4 weeks, but an enlarged cyst can rupture causing significant pain. Hopefully you will not need surgery again. ...Read more
Hi....I m 31 yr old female. Sufferring from chocolate cyst of size 54*32 mm. I have already gone through under surgery also. So is there any other treatm?
Hormonal Suppression: Excisional surgery is only a temporary fix for chocolate cysts related to endometriosis. Unless your ovaries are being removed (and you're too young for that), one thing to try would be hormonal suppression; hibernating your ovaries, via use of continuous oral contraceptive pills or an injection called Lupron (leuprolide) that shuts down your cycling. This can potentially quiet down any active endometriosis. ...Read more

Varies: Certainly pregnancy should be the first goal. If you have not completed childbearing that should be the main focus. Having surgery on the ovary can lead to worsening infertility. Certainly you need a fertility specialist to coordinate any care since you need to be fully counseled on whether it is possible to have kids, how difficult it will or won't be, . And what surgery will help versus hurt you. ...Read more
What is endometrioma? Is that cancerous? What does having a chocolate cyst on the left ovary mean?
Benign: Endometrioma refers to a benign cyst that forms in the ovary when a piece of endometrial (uterine) tissue attaches to the ovary. Because the endometrial tissue inside the cyst responds to monthly hormones it bleeds and fills the cyst with unclotted blood. They are also referred to as 'chocolate cysts' because the dark old blood inside the cyst grossly resembles chocolate. ...Read more
