How They Measure Ovarian Cyst
Dr said that I have bilateral ovarian cyst measured (r=3.9cm x 3.3cm x 4.6cm) (l = 2.1 CM x 1.6 CM x 1.8 cm)is it normal or do I need surgery?
See below: Bilateral simple cysts are not dangerous. They may cause some abdominal pain when they burst.
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

I just found out 2 days ago that I have a ovarian cyst on my left side that measure 30cm by 30cm by 20cm. My question is should the ER let me go home.
30 x 30x by 20?: That is very large - would cover your entire abdomen. Are you sure it wasn't mm? If it was 30x30 cm they would have referred you to a specialist.
I had a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, rupture, ultrasound tech said "it measures 3cm, had to be at least 6cm" does this mean I still have a 3cm cyst?
That's what it: Sounds like, but you are better off speaking with your doctor or checking the official ultrasound report for results, instead of relying on what the tech informally says while he/she is performing the exam.
I am 18. I have a large complex ovarian cyst. Last measured was 6 1/2 cm. I can't get in to the doctor for a couple days. My pelvic area is 7 inches s?
62 female. Mildly complex ovarian cyst.4.6cm. Ovary measures 25cc. Hypoechoic with internal echoes. Radiologist wants to repeat us 6wks. Going crazy! Help!
Deep breath: Take a deep breath, no need to panic yet. It is 100% appropriate to follow a 62 Y.O. W/ a complex cyst, some turn out to be cancers but many do not. Follow-up ultrasound is critical, but may turn out to be nothing. Blood testing tumor markers is sometimes helpful but not always, and should only be done with a doctor who understands markers and what they mean. Please don't panic and best wishes!
Time: Most ovarian cysts go away by themselves over time. If a cyst stays around for more than 3 months, what we would do next depends on it's size, your age, any symptoms and very specific details of the ultrasound report describing the cyst.
Depends on factors: A simple cyst is very common and often detected on routine pelvic or ultrasound exam and might disappear by the next exam. The more complex ones need further evaluation so doctors can determine the significance of cysts based their size, structure, timing with regard to period and to menopause, etc. Because not all cysts are normal, i'll share this with specialists in onc for their perspective..See 1 more doctor answer
Depends on the cyst: Some cysts (small simple follicular) don't need any help and resolve on their own. Large symptomatic cysts most likely will require surgical intevention. There are some cysts that resolve with hormonal treatment.
Ovarian Cysts: Not all ovarian cysts undergo complications like twisting or leakage and rupture. In fact most cysts are found incidentally as part of a routing gyn examination. One has to be careful and avoid and strenuous activities if the cyst is of moderate size as they are more prone to physical complications.
Most are normal: Making cysts is what the ovary normally does. Ovulation is the process by which an egg is enclosed in a follicle that produces estrogen. The follicle develops over (usually) two weeks, and then ruptures, releasing the egg. This is ovulation. The structure that was the follicle the begins to produce progesterone. It remains present until 10-12 weeks if pregnancy occurs.
Possibly: For the most part, ovarian cysts are not genetic in the sense that they are not hereditary. Most women with ovarian cysts have some disruption of the ovarian cycle resulting in ovarian cyst development. However, their are some genetic syndromes which are hereditary and in which ovarian cysts are part of that syndrome. An example is basal cell nevus syndrome.
