Surgery: If doctor thinks you have a chocolate cyst (endometriosis), then the best thing is surgery. These don't go away on their own and the endometriosis can cause scarring and more problems in the pelvis (and sometimes infertility). I would recommend a laparoscopic cystectomy (removal of cyst only, not ovary). This is minimally invasive and could prevent future problems. ...Read more

Do ovarian cysts cause thickening of the endometrial wall?

Endometrium: Thickening of the endometrium during a normal menstrual cycle is due to estrogen prodcution by a follicle (which can appear as a cyst on ultrasound). There are some other cysts, like a granulosa cell tumor that also can make estrogen and thicken the endometrium. Taking estrogen can also thicken it. Polyps, fibroids and other conditions can also make the lining appear thicker on ultrasound. ...Read more

However, septated cysts are often monitored closely, with frequent ultrasounds and follow up until regression which can take up to a year. Some doctors feel it necessary to take it out to make sure it isn't cancerous.Do you have other symptoms?I think you should definitely talk to your doc further ...Read more
