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?

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

Ovarian cyst: Yes it's still possible to have pain from a cyst that's shrinking and leaking fluid. The fluid from the cyst can irritate the lining tissue in the pelvis causing such pain. Using a heating pad, taking ibuprofen and resting usually helps. Pain doesn't usually last more than a few days. But be sure your not pregnant. ...Read more

Observation: A simple cyst even above 8 cm has a very low chance of being a cancer. Despite that fact, removal would be recommended because of the chance of it causing pain or torsion. If you do not want it out, that is your decision. You physical health must also be taken into account. ...Read more
