I am a 62 year old menopausal woman diagnosed with a hydrosalpinx about 34x44 and 4.8. There are no symptoms. What should I do ?

Possibly observe: A small relatively simple adnexal mass can be observed. I will often do several ultrasound tests to make sure the cyst is stable and not growing, then check ultrasound once a year.
