Hi doc! I'm due to have surgery this Friday with a removal of a dermoid cyst aprrox. 14 cm and I'm in my 2nd trimester. What's the recovery time?

I have a 3-4cm dermoid cyst on each ovary, which cause some mild pain, usually around ovulation time. At what point should I consider surgery?

I have a 3-4cm dermoid cyst on each ovary, which cause some mild pain, usually around ovulation time.  At what point should I consider surgery?

I would: Consider getting this done whenever you can. A solid cyst, if it gets a little larger, can twist on itself cutting the blood supply to the ovary. It's called an ovarian torsion and it is a surgical emergency. I just wouldn't wait too long, good luck. ...Read more
