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. It could likely be removed using a laparoscope, resulting in small incisions. The sooner it is removed the better. See your doctor don't go to the er.
Ovarian cyst. A 7cm cyst is actually very big. Er is not the solution as they will not take it out. Call your ob/gyn and have her seen there.
