4cm complex ovarian cyst. Mri can't ruleout neoplasm. Hysterectomy in apr. Age 37. Horrible pain, bloating, urinary incont. Bowel changes. Surgery?
May have to remove i: Complex ovarian cysts require closer monitoring and consideration of removal if they grow in size. The size is still not big enough to chase it and remove it right now. But an interval re-evaluation in 2-3 months will help to determine if it is increasing in size or not. If it grows over 6 months and the size is bigger than 6-7 cm, i would recommend surgical removal. But also get a ca125 level do. ...Read more
Ultrasound showed a solid ovarian cyst 5cm 6 weeks ago. Recent MRI says there's nothing. I feel mass by myself and have pain, too. What's happening now?
MRI findings: Uterine fibroids can appear as dense masses on MRI, or increase in density in the layers of the uterine muscle. Ovarian cysts are often fluid filled but also can be solid masses on MRI. I would ask your health care provider or the radiologist to interpret these findings rather than trying to identify these conditions yourself as there appearance on scans are not always the same. ...Read more
18 year old dtr has a 3.4 CM rt ovarian dermoid cyst (mri dx). First gyn will only salvage part of ovary if she does laparotomy. Second dr said laparoscopy- spillage not an issue. How to decide?
Third opinion : This is a small enough cyst that laparoscopy should be successful. U need to find out how many procedures they do laparoscopically - more the better. Also ask about complication rate. U have to b comfortable with ur surgeon and it doesn't sound like you r at this time. Having one more option might ease ur mind. Try to find someone who does lots of laparoscopy. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

An MRI of the spine showed a 5.9cm ovarian cyst . I had a Partial Hysterectomy 25 years ago. Should I be concerned I'm 50 years old.
Need eval by Gyn onc: It would be wise to have a pelvic ultrasound , consult a Gyn oncologist and have your ovarian cyst evaluated further. Ultimately, either exploratory laparoscopic surgery or laparotomic oophorectomy may be needed to make a definitive diagnosis. Unfortunately there is no other accurate and reliable way to reassure you that your ovarian cyst is benign, even though most ovarian cysts are . ...Read more

However, the vast majority of the time, the cyst you describe is simply a functional hemorrhagic cyst. ...Read more
