How long is it normal to wait for surgery to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?

How long is it normal to wait for surgery  to remove an ovarian cyst with septations the size is 10 cm?

Depends: Their is not a specific amount of time. This usually would not need to be performed immediately. If you have pain, an elevated CA-125, a family history of ovarian cancer or some other concerning feature then that would increase the urgency. Regardless, I would not wait to long. Several weeks would not be uncommon depending on the surgeon's and hospital's schedule. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Is pink/brownish spotting normal while having ovarian cyst? The radiologist told me it happens when the cyst size is reducing. Is this so?

Is pink/brownish spotting normal while having ovarian cyst? The radiologist told me it happens when the cyst size is reducing. Is this so?

Sort of: Assuming that this is right around the time of ovulation, then there is a brief, abrupt drop in estrogen levels that leads to a small amount of mid-cycle spotting. This is also about the time that a dominant cyst releases and egg and will appear to change / decrease in size. ...Read more

No: It's not normal. You're apparently not ovulating. You need to see a doctor who will either give you hormones to help your periods or else help you to ovulate if you wish to conceive. The cyst needs to be followed to see if it goes away. ...Read more

Bi-loculated ovarian cyst, thick internal septum, part solid. Size 42x21x26mm. There 2 yrs (was pregnant). Ca125 normal. No risk for cancer?

Bi-loculated ovarian cyst, thick internal septum, part solid.  Size 42x21x26mm.  There 2 yrs (was pregnant). Ca125 normal.  No risk for cancer?

Ovarian cancer: There is no such thing as "no risk." the ultrasound features are concerning. A ca-125 isn't a screening test, it's only used in this circumstance to aid in deciding who best to further evaluate a complex cyst--a general gynecologist or a gynecologist oncologist. There are other tests to aid in making this decision as well, such as ova1, but not all insurances cover this test yet. ...Read more

My size of ovarian cyst is 4, 2cm stay the same size for one year do I need surgery?

1.2 cm: 1.2 cm is less than 1/2 inch. I am pretty sure that it is not the same cyst stayed for a year. Small cysts developed on ovaries every month and then ovulation occurs and they go away, then return in next cycle. Anyway such a small cyst is not a cause to be worried. ...Read more

Patience: Stay on the pill and give it time. If this is a "functional" cyst, it will go away over the course of a couple cycles. Stay on the pill in the meantime - you are doing everything right. ...Read more
