I've had ovarian cysts and painful bursts almost every month for years. even more often since my partial hysterectomy February 2013. Help.

I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

I am suffering with lots of pain from an 4.6 ovarian cyst i had a partial hysterectomy 9 years ago i'm having lots of stomach pain vomiting and leg?
See your doctor: Cysts on the ovary are common and not necessarily a problem. That said, some cysts represent abnormal growths and need to be removed. Large cysts that cause pain need to be evaluated by your doctor. The other symptoms may or may not be related but they should be evaluated as well. Cysts (especially in a 48 yo with symptoms) require a visit to the doctor. ...Read more
Is a painful, 3.6 ovarian cyst bad for 32 yo after partial hysterectomy in April2015? Spotting,nausea,pressure, low appetite,fullness, freq.urination
