Ultrasound should help to give clue what he is dealing with. I would favor laparoscopic surger. ...Read more

See your Ob/Gyn: A 6.3cm ovarian cyst is the size of a large orange. A cyst that size is an abnormal finding.

You need to be seeing an Ob/Gyn about this as they are trained to know what to do next. Best wishes! ...Read more
