Just found out I have 2.1 inch ovarian cyst does that require surgery?

Ovarian cyst: Although you have a 2.1 inch cyst in your ovary, you haven't mentioned how long its been there, are you having any symptoms, or how was it found. If you are having a lot of symptoms and/or pain, surgery would help to relieve these symptoms. Still, it is not uncommon to develop a cyst that will resolve without treatment.

My size of ovarian cyst is 4, 2cm stay the same size for one year do I need surgery?

My size of ovarian cyst is 4, 2cm stay the same size for one year do I need surgery?

1.2 cm: 1.2 cm is less than 1/2 inch. I am pretty sure that it is not the same cyst stayed for a year. Small cysts developed on ovaries every month and then ovulation occurs and they go away, then return in next cycle. Anyway such a small cyst is not a cause to be worried.

How long is it normal to wait for surgery to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?

How long is it normal to wait for surgery to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?

Depends: Their is not a specific amount of time. This usually would not need to be performed immediately. If you have pain, an elevated CA-125, a family history of ovarian cancer or some other concerning feature then that would increase the urgency. Regardless, I would not wait to long. Several weeks would not be uncommon depending on the surgeon's and hospital's schedule. Hope this helps.

I have right ovarian cyst of size 4.5 x 3.6. do I have to surgery. Or taking danzol could reduce the size?

Ovarian cyst size: Depends on the type of cyst. Ovarian cysts can range from under 0.5 inches (1.27 cm) to more than 12 inches (30.48 cm). Ovarian cysts are particularly common during childbearing years. Many resolve spontaneously without treatment. The potential risks and benefits of any treatment should be carefully considered. No treatment is necessary unless symptoms outweigh potential risk of treatment.

My ovarian cyst is 7.7cm very painful I have it for one month and five days already, will I need surgery?

Ovarian Cyst: Most ovarian cysts will resolve without surgery. Sometimes we will give Birth Control pills to try and shrink them. You howver, have quite a large cyst that is giving you a lot of pain.
