Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

My tvs scan shows both ovarian cyst also size of ovary larger. Have no kids.4 yrz of marriage. Can I tak danazole or laproscope best for fertility n cys?

Neither: Your doctor may chose to treat or just watch the cyst (s) depending on their size and appearance. Danazol is used to treat the pain of endometriosis, not infertility. It is neither safe nor effective for fertility treatment. Laparoscopy is surgery and should not be the first treatment for infertility, unless the doctor wishes to treat the cyst.

I have right ovarian cyst of size 4.5 x 3.6. do I have to surgery. Or taking danzol could reduce the size?

Ovarian cyst size: Depends on the type of cyst. Ovarian cysts can range from under 0.5 inches (1.27 cm) to more than 12 inches (30.48 cm). Ovarian cysts are particularly common during childbearing years. Many resolve spontaneously without treatment. The potential risks and benefits of any treatment should be carefully considered. No treatment is necessary unless symptoms outweigh potential risk of treatment.

I was diagnosed with 5.2cm ovarian cyst and my doctor told me to take bc pills. Will these pills reduce the size of the cyst or stop its growth?

I was diagnosed with 5.2cm ovarian cyst and my doctor told me to take bc pills. Will these pills reduce the size of the cyst or stop its growth?

They will likely: Stop the growth. It is likely what we call a "simple cyst" which means it just has fluid, or a hemmorragic cyst with blood it it. It's not gonna be cancer but you will need follow up to ensure resolution. It will likely resolve on its own. Good luck.

I have 6cm and 8 CM ovarian cysts. My gyn suggested laparoscopy. Can birth control pills help to reduce the size of the cysts? Other alternatives?

I have 6cm and 8 CM ovarian cysts. My gyn suggested laparoscopy. Can birth control pills help to reduce the size of the cysts? Other alternatives?

Unlikely: It is safe to take OCP for few months, but it is unlikely that they will help to reduce the cyst size. You have two alternatives-do nothing and wait or undergo surgery to remove the cyst. Not all cyst created equal-if cyst has complex appearance on sonogram, increasing in size, accompanied by pain, or elevated tumor markers such as CA-125 then it is more likely that woman will need surgery

Patience: Stay on the pill and give it time. If this is a "functional" cyst, it will go away over the course of a couple cycles. Stay on the pill in the meantime - you are doing everything right.

My size of ovarian cyst is 4, 2cm stay the same size for one year do I need surgery?

My size of ovarian cyst is 4, 2cm stay the same size for one year do I need surgery?

1.2 cm: 1.2 cm is less than 1/2 inch. I am pretty sure that it is not the same cyst stayed for a year. Small cysts developed on ovaries every month and then ovulation occurs and they go away, then return in next cycle. Anyway such a small cyst is not a cause to be worried.

When should I seek medical attention regarding an ovarian cyst 4.7 CM in size?

When should I seek medical attention regarding an ovarian cyst 4.7 CM in size?

Yes: It would be good to get the opinion of a gynecologist. It doesn't mean anything needs to be done, but a good detailed discussion of what the doctors things the cyst is and a good plan for following it over time is certainly needed. Risk of ovarian torsion is important to discuss.

Hi my ovarian cyst size is 6.8 CM in size. Kindly suggest is it possible to cure by nonsugical.?

Hi my ovarian cyst size is 6.8 CM in size. Kindly suggest is it possible to cure by nonsugical.?

Depends: Your cyst can be followed if it's a simple cyst without any features that are worrisome for malignancy. If there are multiple septations, thickened membranes, nodules, irregular sides, etc; you should have a surgical procedure to rule out pre-malignant or malignant tissue. Also, this size can occasionally torse (twist) & can cause severe pain. Talk to your doc re: your cysts characteristics.

I have ovarian cyst and its size of a lemon. What to do?

See your OBGYN: You need followup, you may need bcpills to try to shrink it or you may need surgery to remove the cyst and or the entire ovary, I would see your obgyn today as if you haven't seen one you will need evaluation and close follow-up and the best course of management depending on the kind and the exact size of the cyst and your fertilitty situation.

Is that possible to have ovarian cyst or cancer while I'm on Pill? I have thought OC reduces the risk.

Is that possible to have ovarian cyst or cancer while I'm on Pill? I have thought OC reduces the risk.

Possible: Ovarian cysts are quite common and often harmless. Pill does not prevent the development of ovarian cancer, even if it may help in reducing the incidence on a population basis.

Can an antibiotic decrease the size of an ovarian cyst? If so, what type of cyst is likely to benefit from its use? Thanks.

Can an antibiotic decrease the size of an ovarian cyst? If so, what type of cyst is likely to benefit from its use? Thanks.

No: Ovarian cysts are not typically caused by infections but rather the normal development of an egg in the ovary. Antibiotics would have to effect on this.

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.

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.

I've had a functional ovarian cyst on left ovary that fluctuates in size between 2.5 and 3.5 cm with symptoms for 18 months that won't go away.

I've had a functional ovarian cyst on left ovary that fluctuates in size between 2.5 and 3.5 cm with symptoms for 18 months that won't go away.

Tiny ovarian cyst: This ovarian cyst is only 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter, and I question that its' size is the source of your symptoms for 18 months. Have your GYN MD re-evaluate your symptoms and if necessary obtain a 2nd opinion.

Hi I'm curious to no if my ovarian cyst is 6.5 by 4.1 in size and I'm small framed 8 1/2 stone. Would it be best to have it surgically removed?

Laparoscopic: That is if it really needs to be removed. At your age, certain ovarian cysts can be monitored, as it is possible that they can resolved spontaneously

Can an ovarian cyst of this size (10 cm), eventually resolve itself?

Can an ovarian cyst of this size (10 cm), eventually resolve itself?

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.
