May not ever return: Ovarian cysts generally develop during each menstrual cycle, in young women. Frequently one cyst per cycle becomes dominant and may enlarge to the point of discomfort prior to ovulation. There are many other causes of pelvic pain (scar tissue, endometriosis, infection). There is a good chance that your cysts may play only a small role in your pain. Cyst removal/ surgery may not always be needed. ...Read more

Broad differential.: The differential diagnosis is broad. The cause of your pain could indeed be ovarian in etiology. However, it is not uncommon for other disease processes (such as kidney stones) to refer to groin area as well. More history, exam, and possible imaging studies may be needed to give you a good answer. Hope this helps! ...Read more

A fertility exam is required for specific answers. ...Read more

Maybe: Each month a cyst forms on the ovary in a woman of reproductive age. This cyst ruptures and an egg is released. This is a normal process. Sometimes a functional cyst can grow to a large size and cause problems. Sometimes there are cystic growths on the ovary that are not "normal." the best way to tell if a cyst is present is through imaging such as a us. It is hard to tell based on symptoms. ...Read more

I'm 19 years old with 7.7x7.7x5.8 cm ovarian cyst that is predominantly anechoic with a single septation. What does this mean?
Follow up needed: Anechoic is an ultrasound term which means simple and usually benign. Hypoechoic is usually more complex and could be more worrisome.

Ovarian cyst: At 22, this is probably just a benign "simple follicular cyst", but if there are ultrasound suggestions of solid components, or blood flow increases by "color doppler" ultrasound exams, your provider may suggest laparoscopy for a tissue sample. See your provider for advice. Laparoscopy is an outpatient procedure, and will provide very accurate information. ...Read more
