I : I am so sorry you are going through this. Ovarian cysts are a very painful, miserable condition. As the er physician advised removal, it is worthwhile to discuss this with a gynecologist. In some patients, treatment with anti-inflammatory type medications or even birth control pills can help shrink cysts down. However, if the cyst looks concerning on ultrasound, often times the patient is advised to have it removed. Only a licensed gynecologist who reviews your studies and takes your history can advise one way or the other. ...Read more

What is a complex ovarian cyst? And what is the difference between that and a regular one that appears and stays even after menstruation.

Ultrasound: Can distinguish between simple and complex ovarian cysts. Simple cysts are entirely fluid filled. Complex cysts contain echoes indicating solid areas mixed with fluid filled areas. Most complex cysts are benign but some are borderline or malignant. Most cysts go away on their own with time. Ultrasound descriptions help us know if they are growing, changing, or going away. ...Read more

I have a complex ovarian cyst that will not go away and it is very painful could it be cancer?

Maybe: most likely it is a benign cyst. Cancer risk increases in cystic ovaries in Women over 60. However a complex system of the ovary can't be associated with cancer and a 37-year-old female. The only way to know for sure is to have it ultrasound and possibly biopsied. You can also look at the Ca 125 serum protein levels.again though it is very common to have benign cyst in the ovary in a 37-year. ...Read more

I have a complex ovarian cyst that partially ruptured 3 days ago. Er dr said i'd be fine in 2 days but i'm still in tremendous pain. Is this normal?

I'd say yes.: You have had an ovarian cyst rupture, with blood and possibly other fluid empty into your abdominal cavity. This will likely cause a great deal of pain and reactive changes, like adhesions over time. If you haven't already , it might be wise to schedule at least an appointment with your OB dr. To get checked out if the pain persists. You might even have endometriosis which is also painful. ...Read more

Had a complex ovarian cyst rmvd  from my left ovary yr ago & just found out i've a simple cyst on the same ovary. Will it prevent me from ovulating?

Probably not.: A simple cyst is usually benign and will go away on its own. In fact when you ovulate, the egg is released from a cyst and then the cyst resolves. Cysts do not usually interfere with ovulation. Depending on the size and symptoms of this cyst, your doctor may want to repeat your ultrasound in 6 weeks to insure it has resolved or is not getting bigger or complex appearing. ...Read more
