Very likely benign: If a pelvic sonogram confirms that your 3 cm ovarian cyst has thin walls, clear fluid, no septation and normal blood flow, it is most probably benign. If you have a personal history or a family history of breast-colon-endometrial-thyroid tumors, have never been pregnant, never used oral contraceptives, have symptoms and risk factors for ovarian tumors...consult a Gyn oncologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Cysts are: But a 7cm ovarain cyst is relatively large and m, ay cause some pain, etc. Have the cyst followed regularly by the OB/GYN Dr/surgeon and it may need to come out, especially if it causes you pain and or has the possibility to become "torsed" where it would then require emergency surgery.

I have a 4.7 CM ovarian cyst, very painful! It was found TWO years ago at 3 cm. Should I have this removed? What is the procedure to remove it?
Ovarian Cyst: Most ovarian cysts, even larger ones, will usually resolve spontaneously in younger women. However, if it is very painful for you, you can have it removed by laparoscopic surgery. A camera is placed into the abdomen and it is removed through a tiny incision. It is an outpatient procedure. Hope this helps. ...Read more

No: Small ovarian cysts usually collapse (involute) and go away on their own. This is your immune system doing its job. Follow up with your doctor as they suggest and alert them to any new symptoms but don't worry. Worry suppresses your immune system and slows healing. ...Read more
EXTREMELY unlikely: I would almost say 100% no. That size of a cyst is too large to resolve itself, and should be removed surgically, due to the risks of it being a tumor (need to rule out malignancy) and due to the risk of torsion (where the ovary twists around it's artery and vein, cuts off the blood supply to it and causes severe pain). Sorry, but you really need to have surgery to remove it. ...Read more
How much pain?: I will depend upon how severe the pain is and whether it is tolerable by you or not. Severe pain usually requires Laparoscopy after ultrasonography confirms the cyst's presence to resolve the pain with aspiration or removal of the ovary. Oral contraceptives are often the non surgical approach to cyst resolution if pain is not a factor. ...Read more
Wait: Cysts come and go with your cycle. While 4.7 cm is a little larger than usual it is not big enough to be of concern. As long as it is a simple cyst and unless it is somehow symptomatic, you do not need to do anything. If you are worried, recheck it after a couple of cycles. ...Read more
