I was diagnosed tuesday with an ovarian cyst. 6.4 cm. It is thursday and i can hardly handle the pain, frequent urination, and  lower right side pain?

Can my anxiety prolong or worsen a condition? I have ovarian cyst discomfort it's not going away i keep thinking the worst.

Anxiety.: Your anxiety is not likely to worsen an ovarian cyst. Do you have a cyst or is it pain that you believe would be consistent with an ovarian cyst? Marked anxiety can decrease your pain threshold and can turn you into an emotional wreck. If you are guessing about the source of your pain - encourage to get it checked out. Take some of the fear out of this. ...Read more

2 ovarian cysts showing endometriomas. Both in a retro uterine location. Right one measuring 4 x 3.6cm and the left 6x4.5cm. How bad is my condition?

Significant: Ultrasounds are fairly accurate in the diagnosis of endometriomas. Any endometrioma over 3 cm should be removed. If fertility is not important, have uterus and both ovaries removed. If fertility important, can have cysts removed but with endometriosis and age 41, fertility may be impaired already. ...Read more

I have a hermorrhagic bilocular right ovarian cyst which has partially ruptured . how serious is my condition and can l try for a baby in this state?

Usually Not serious: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts can be painful. Usually they aren't serious, though occasionally surgery is needed due to severe pain or internal bleeding. They usually resolve on their own. I wouldn't try to conceive while you have these cysts. It could be uncomfortable and cause bleeding. Best wishes! ...Read more

Can complex ovarian cysts cause polycystic ovarian disease?

Can complex ovarian cysts cause polycystic ovarian disease?

No: The term complex ovarian cyst indicates that an imaging study, usually ultrasound, shows a cyst with internal echoes, septation, or irregular or thickened cyst walls. They should be aggressively investigated as some of these cysts may be cancerous. Polycystic ovaries are usually enlarged and contain multiple small cysts just under the surface of the ovary. They mainly produce hormone imbalances. ...Read more

My ovarian cyst grew half cm. I am postmenopausal.If surgery will i need both ovaries out. Increase in heart disease and kybf ca  if ovaries removed?

Analyse risk/benefit: Best take family, talk with your gyn surgeon. The risk of leaving a growing ovarian mass/cyst in place is, could be cancer. Okay to ask about the blood tests and other risk factors. If your surgeon is recommending surgery it is likely to get a pathology exam of the mass and make sure it's not cancer. There will be surgical risk, and the analysis to benefit is important for your decision. Be well. ...Read more

I'm not sure what...: ...your asking, but I'll give you some basic information. Autoimmune disorders don't increase the risk of cancer. A family history of cancer doesn't increase the risk for autoimmune disorders. Recurring ovarian cysts may have a genetic component (such as with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome-PCOS) but they aren't cancerous and don't increase your risk of cancer. But they can be treated.
