I have a complex ovarian cyst with septations and debris about 14ml in volume. It was 7ml 3 months ago. It's now pressing against my colon. Treatment?

Talk to your GYN: Your personal GYN can best answer for your specific case, but generally if the cyst is enlarging and causing symptoms by pressing against your colon it may be best treated surgically.

A doctor who knows your whole history and exam could answer these for you, can't say more online. Good wishes ...Read more

I just had a precancerous polyp removed from a colonoscopy that doc said he does not see at my age39.The pain led me to find ovarian cyst is it cancer?

Unlikely: ovarian cysts are very common. 3 cm or less is considered a normal functional follicular cyst related to normal ovulation cycles. A cyst greater than 5 cm in a premenopausal patient should be followed and managed by an OB GYN doctor. A pelvic ultrasound will show if the cyst is simple (no solid parts) or complex (internal solid components). Vast majority of ovarian cysts are benign. ...Read more
