I have overian cyst its 5 cm. Can that be painful. My doctor said no?

Certainly can.: A five centimeter ovarian cyst is well within the range of what is considered normal - many women form cysts this size and have no pain. However, a cyst this size could cause severe pain if formed rapidly by filling with blood - usually this is treated with pain meds, but could require surgery. It would cause severe pain and would require surgery if it is twisted (torsed ovary) around inside. ...Read more

Should I worry if I was told I had a overian cyst but doctor said its normal and was told dont worry about it?

Should I worry if I was told I had a overian cyst but doctor said its normal and was told dont worry about it?

Monitor: Ovarian cysts are very common. If your doctor evaluated you and the radiologist read the US report and told you it was benign. It probably is. Depending on the case sometimes we reorder an US in a few months to see if the cyst has resolved. If you continue to worry go for a second opinion. Good luck! ...Read more

I need some information on hemorrhagic ovarian cysts. Doctor says I have one. And I'm just wondering how long it and the pain will last etc?

Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts: Haemorrhagic ovarian cysts (HOCs) usually result from haemorrhage into a corpus luteum or other functional cyst. Radiographic features are variable depending on the age of the haemorrhage. They typically resolve within eight weeks. Patients may present with sudden-onset pelvic pain, pelvic mass, or they may be asymptomatic and the HOC is an incidental finding 4. A haemorrhagic or a ruptured ovarian cyst is the most common cause of acute pelvic pain in an afebrile, premenopausal woman presenting to the emergency room 5. They can occur during pregnancy. HOCs typically develop as a result of ovulation. Secondary to a hormone response the stromal cells surrounding a maturing Graafian follicle become more vascular, and after the oocyte has been expelled, the Graafian follicle develops into a corpus luteum with a highly vascular and fragile granulosa layer, which ruptures easily, forming a HOC 4. A cystic structure that does not convincingly satisfy the criteria for a benign cyst cannot be considered a cyst Differential considerations on ultrasound include: cystic ovarian neoplasm: the most helpful feature in distinguishing ovarian neoplasms from haemorrhagic cysts are papillary projections nodular septa colour Doppler flow in the cystic structure endometrioma typically contains uniform low level internal echoes with a hypervascular wall on Doppler ultrasound. more often multiple on MRI, endometrioma shows high signal in T1 and low signal in T2WIs and should be evaluated with a short interval follow-up US or MRI ...Read more

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

I have ovarian cysts on both ovaries since a hysterectomy...Will the doctor remove them?

Depends: At 39 years old, you probably have functioning ovaries. If they are removed you are (without hormonal replacement) plunged into menopause. A question would be, are you in pain, or are the ovaries just known to have asyptomatic cysts on them? Most physicians would remove symptomatic ovarian cysts if other means to shrink them didm't work. ...Read more

I have a ovarian cysts that is causing a lot of pain doctor has said he will refer me to get it drained when its drained 
can it come back?

Depends what it is: If it is a functional cyst it likely will not come back although it could, if it is not functional (endometrioma, inclusion cyst, benign tumor etc....) they will recur about 85%-100% of the time. It's important to have at least a very good guess what it "is" before draining. ...Read more
