But if you prefer, you can be monitored with serial physical exam and Ultrasound examinations at 6 to 9 month intervals and delay surgery unless the cyst continues to grow or become more complex like showing solid components inside the cyst.. ...Read more

MRI (for other purpose) found 3 cm. Ovarian cyst. Post-menopausal, hysterectomy/one ovary. Wasn't felt 4 months ago at gyn exam. Expect follow-up?

Very likely benign: If a pelvic sonogram confirms that your 3 cm ovarian cyst has thin walls, clear fluid, no septation and normal blood flow, it is most probably benign. If you have a personal history or a family history of breast-colon-endometrial-thyroid tumors, have never been pregnant, never used oral contraceptives, have symptoms and risk factors for ovarian tumors...consult a Gyn oncologist for evaluation. ...Read more
