Not known!: Hello, we don't know why ovaries make their cysts. Seems that they are a very active organ, what with making eggs and hormones, and sometimes the egg-making cells just overgrow and become a dermoid cyst, complete with hair, skin, and other cells that the 'germ cell' (egg producing cell) has in it's potential. Wierd, huh! they are benign, but don't go away without surgery, and can be recurrent. ...Read more

If it is a cancer, it will not be the same size or have the same characteristics. ...Read more

And what surgery will help versus hurt you. ...Read more

Danogen aka Danazol: Nope. It will not help you become pregnant. It will help you with your endometriosis in that it will reduce the amount of endometrial tissue that is growing in places where it shouldn't in your body, thus reducing your symptoms of endometriosis. But if you are trying to get pregnant, I recommend stopping use of this medication 2 months prior to attempting to conceive. ...Read more
