What Size Ovarian Cysts Need To Be Removed
I have a 3cm septated ovarian cyst. At what point/size should it be surgically removed. I have a hx of Dermoid Teratoma/partial oophrectomy.
It depends: Good evening, It appears that you already follow with GYN, so they should be able to tell you when the cyst should be removed. Many times, the cyst is monitored every 6 months to a year for interval increase in size. If the size remains stable over time, there is no need for intervention. Good luck. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with a complex multiseptated ovarian cyst roughly 9.5 x 5.6 x 6.3cm , will it need to be removed ?
Most likely: A 9.5cm ovarian cyst is quite large. Your cyst has fluid and solid components (complex) and lots of septations. Cysts like this don't usually go away on their own. They frequently have to be surgically removed. The good news is that ovarian cancer is not common at age 23 and you have two ovaries so you should still be able to get pregnant if the other ovary is normal. Best wishes! ...Read more
I have a left ovarian cyst 3.5 x 4.8 and only a partial ovary with pain, does it need to be removed?
I recently had a partial hysterectomy about 3 months ago and discovered last month that I have an ovarian cyst, does it need to be removed?

I just had an ultrasound that detected a 6 CM ovarian cyst with nodule, will this need to be removed?
Yes.: The fact that the cyst contains a solid nodule makes it more likely to be a tumor (either benign, or hopefully not-malignant), and make it important to have surgery to remove it. There are some lab tests that your doctor can order that can help to stratify it as higher or lower risk to be a cancer, but it should be removed. ...Read more
Does a 7 CM ovarian cyst need to be removed? 16 yr old daughter is in severe pain and can barely move, even on lortab. Should we go to the er?
Probably yes. : 7 cm is pretty large, a cyst this big could certainly cause pain. It could suddenly twist or burst, resulting in emergency surgery. Probably not a cancer.
