Ovarian Cyst 3 Cm In Size
EXTREMELY unlikely: I would almost say 100% no. That size of a cyst is too large to resolve itself, and should be removed surgically, due to the risks of it being a tumor (need to rule out malignancy) and due to the risk of torsion (where the ovary twists around it's artery and vein, cuts off the blood supply to it and causes severe pain). Sorry, but you really need to have surgery to remove it. ...Read more

I've had a functional ovarian cyst on left ovary that fluctuates in size between 2.5 and 3.5 cm with symptoms for 18 months that won't go away.
Depends: Your cyst can be followed if it's a simple cyst without any features that are worrisome for malignancy. If there are multiple septations, thickened membranes, nodules, irregular sides, etc; you should have a surgical procedure to rule out pre-malignant or malignant tissue. Also, this size can occasionally torse (twist) & can cause severe pain. Talk to your doc re: your cysts characteristics. ...Read more
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

Are there medications other than surgery to decrease the size of large benign 13 CM simple ovarian cyst or at least prevent it from getting bigger?
No: There are many reasons a 13 cm cyst needs to be removed by surgery: unknown type, rupture, torsion,... often the cyst can be removed without removing the ovary. It would be w-a-y outside standard of care (at least in the US) to "observe" this rather than remove. If it hasn't been removed for tissue, how do you really know it's benign? ...Read more

Does a uterus size of 10.2x3.9x4.9cm and a unilocular ovarian cyst of 2 CM mean anything? Periods have had clots and last more than a week. Thanks.
I have 6cm and 8 CM ovarian cysts. My gyn suggested laparoscopy. Can birth control pills help to reduce the size of the cysts ? other alternatives ?
Unlikely: It is safe to take OCP for few months, but it is unlikely that they will help to reduce the cyst size. You have two alternatives-do nothing and wait or undergo surgery to remove the cyst. Not all cyst created equal-if cyst has complex appearance on sonogram, increasing in size, accompanied by pain, or elevated tumor markers such as CA-125 then it is more likely that woman will need surgery ...Read more
