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
Cysts will resolve: Small cysts on the ovary are very common even in young women. The overwhelming majority will resolve on their own without surgery. Although they may hurt the best treatment is to take Ibuprofen for the pain and to wait to see if it goes away. They don't grow back but you could certainly form a new one. ...Read more

If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?
Hmm...: Well sciatica generally is not caused by anything in the abdomen, so highly unlikely the fluid from ovarian cyst caused your sciatica. I would have your doctor get an MRI of your spine if your sciatica doesn't resolve in a week or two as the most likely culprit will be a herniated disc. ...Read more

I'm 35 and have a 9cm fluid-filled ovarian cyst that has not resolved in 6+ months. Doc wants to remove that ovary. Is this the best treatment?

Time: Most ovarian cysts go away by themselves over time. If a cyst stays around for more than 3 months, what we would do next depends on it's size, your age, any symptoms and very specific details of the ultrasound report describing the cyst. ...Read more
Depends on the cyst: Some cysts (small simple follicular) don't need any help and resolve on their own. Large symptomatic cysts most likely will require surgical intevention. There are some cysts that resolve with hormonal treatment. ...Read more
Ultrasound: Ovarian cysts are best evaluated by transvaginal ultrasound. If you are young and have periods, most cysts are ok, though they may grow large and rupture and cause pain. If you have gone through menopause, ovarian cysts need to be followed more closely, since they may be cancer. Pelvic MRI is helpful in evaluating persistent cysts or cysts which may partially contain solid tissue. ...Read more
Complex question: This depends on many details: your medical history, your family history, features seen on ultrasound like size, solid areas, blood flow. Most cysts at age 44 if you are still having menstrual cycles will be benign, but you should follow up with your gynecologist as directed to be sure. ...Read more
Patience vs. Surgery:
Most ovarian cysts in young women are "functional cysts", which evolve from a follicle that you ovulate from, then grow and finally resolve spontaneously over several weeks. Birth control pills do not speed up the resolution, but do decrease recurrences.
If the cyst persists then surgery, often laparoscopic, is necessary to remove the cyst and have it tested for cancer. ...Read more
