Possibly: The word complex is thrown around a lot in ultrasound but it is actually pretty worthless. There are things that look "complex" but are benign and can easily be identified as such and similar with malignant lesions. It really depends what it actually looks like. Were there any other descriptors of the lesion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Usually pain occurs when they rupture and release follicular fluid and they may bleed a little. Sometimes, if a cyst is large enough, it can predispose the ovary to twist on its own blood supply and cause a great deal of pain. This is called torsion and is very serious. Pain associated with torsion is usually very severe and often associated with nausea and vomiting. ...Read more
None: A follicle is a cyst in the ovary. However ultrasound cannot differentiate "functional" cysts (supposed to be there) from a neoplastic one (benign or pre-malignant, or malignant one). We use ultrasound criteria and risk factors to decide if anything needs to be done, but usually a small, single, thin-walled cyst of the ovary is normal and is supposed to be there. Serial ultraounds are helpful. ...Read more
Depends on cyst: If imaging shows a "simple" cyst, an option is to repeat imaging in 4-6 weeks to see if it is smaller or entirely gone. A "complex" cyst may require surgery, depending on its specific characteristics. Need for surgery also depends on the amount of pain you are having. If severe, you may consider surgery to definitively take care of the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Told I have a 5cm cyst right ovary. Will it go away on its own? Or is this something to be worried about I have no pain at all.
No: Immature follicles have not matured to the point that they are functional. Cysts occur once they have matured but are the result of improper function. They can result from other hormone imbalances in the body such as with high androgens (testosterone/DHEA) levels or low Progesterone levels. They can also form after an egg leaves properly from the ovary and are the result of bleeding/ inflammation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
