What questions should I ask new gyn to get accurate diagnosis for for ruptured unknown solid septated mass on r ovary w/ ovary swelling to 7cm?

What is it? : The first thing you will need to ask is is the mass still present? If there is a 7 cm solid ovarian mass then most likely it needs to be removed. Discuss this option with your doctor. If the mass has ruptured and is no longer there then nothing will need to be done other than a follow-up ultrasound to confirm resolution. ...Read more
