See MD: A complex mass at any time is concerning-but more so after menopause. It may have been there for years and be totally benign, but most mds will be worried about a complex mass.

It depends: An ovarian dermoid is a benign neoplasm (tumor) that won't spread beyond the ovary, but may continue to grow. If imaging (ultrasound or mri) suggest a dermoid, management may depend on whether there are any symptoms, the size of the tumor, whether it is growing, and whether there is any suggestion that it might be a different type of tumor or cancer. ...Read more
Yes: Spotting is normal and common after surgery to remove an ovarian cyst.

42yo, total hysterectomy followed by 2 ovarian remnant syndrome surgeries. Fsh at 21.8. No menopause symptoms, pain is back. Could it be remnant?
Ovarian remnant: Yes, unfortunately ovarian remnant can be difficult to surgically excise. Typically, in our practice, we purposefully stimulate the ovary prior to surgery so that we can see the tissue better. An alternative to surgery is to suppress ovarian function with hormones and see if the pain gets better. Sometimes, however, pain can be due to the scar tissue, which hormone therapy will not help. ...Read more

Recent discovery of bleeding cyst/endometrioma. Previous cyst drained from same ovary after hysterectomy +2 yrs. What's probability of surgery?
Try med treatments: Endometriosis (in ovaries or in the pelvic-abdominal cavity) can be very difficult to treat medically and even by surgically removing both ovaries. Draining an endometrioma/bleeding cyst may only provide temporary relief but no cure. Ask your Gyn if medical trials with GnRH drugs, progestins or other medications would be valuable before (or to avoid) returning to the operating room again. ...Read more
Well yes, but...: If the ovaries are removed, then you'll no longer be producing much female sex hormone at all, and you'd then essentially enter menopause unless hormones are replaced in pill form. Daily hormone replacement pills keep levels very stable which would generally end the sorts of symptoms you get from abnormal hormone fluctuation in PCOS. Though it's far too aggressive of a treatment just for PCOS. ...Read more
