I have a 5.9 cm simple ovarian cyst. I have no pain or symptoms. I was told if it grows it might need surgery? What is the danger if it grows?
Important: First, are you 47 years old? I mean no offense but 50% of ages given on HealthTap are untrue. If 47 is correct the risks are torsion (twisting) and rupture. Any cyst larger than 6 cm. is a significant risk for these , both of which require emergency surgery. AT age 47 the chance of cancer, while not terribly high, is still plausible. Hence, needs removal. Good wishes. ...Read more

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
I have a simple ovarian cyst of 4,14 cm.what is the possibility of it to rupture? what should I do if I want to be safe until next ultrasound?
Will likely go away: Physiologic simple cysts that are under hormonal influence will come and go often, sometimes by a slow leak, sometimes by a rupture and sometimes by your body essentially absorbing it. Unfortunately rupture can cause pain and sometimes it can bleed, but there is not much you can do to prevent this sequence other than to prevent cyst formation, possibly by using birth control pills. ...Read more
