Possibly: Tumor markers are to be taken in context with the clinical picture because they can go up in non malignant situations and there can be some debate on what number should be considered abnormal.

Is it dangerous to leave a 5-6 CM complex ovarian cyst? Wedding is in 2 months but having severe pain & discomfort. Have another smaller cyst.

At this size there is no "stock" answer, but prompt surgical removal should be considered. "Severe" pain, what does that make you think? Only a doctor who has examined you in person can make this decision, but you might want to call yours again. Sincere good wishes. ...Read more
