Sorry, but you really need to have surgery to remove it. ...Read more
I have a ovarian cyst the size of a sliver dollar and having a lot of pain in my left side of my abdomen. What should I do?

Are there medications other than surgery to decrease the size of large benign 13 CM simple ovarian cyst or at least prevent it from getting bigger?
No: There are many reasons a 13 cm cyst needs to be removed by surgery: unknown type, rupture, torsion,... often the cyst can be removed without removing the ovary.
