It kind of: Depends on your symptoms. Are you in pain? Are the cysts large? Do you have endometriosis or pain? The medicine is not a cake walk in that it is expensive and will places into menopause with all the drawbacks. It may not resolve the cysts either. I am suprised they enlarge on the ocp.

I had a CA-125 done for ovarian cysts (10.5cm and 4cm) Test came back 190. Had another test weeks later and new u/s. Cyst is now 8.4 and CA-125 is 110. Is this even possible? Cysts are hypoechoic cystic lesions possibly endometriomas & endometriosis.

Complex ovarian cyst w/intern.Septations, submuc. Fibroids, nabothian cysts, liver cyst, hernia. All new w/in last 8 weeks. Possible cancer? Type?

Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital.
