Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
okay well Unlikely this an ovarian cyst since you do not have ovaries - HOWEVER you might have had a small piece of ovary left and hence this would be an ovarian remnant;.
and given you have had colon cancer I would suggest a PET scan and a CT scan to see exactly what this cyst is.

Had a CT scan and the report said it looks like an ovarian cyst.It is in my left pelvic cavity. Colon cancer was left side and had a hemicolectomy. Am currently in remission. Mostly worried about likelihood of cancerThe cyst is round in shape
Well more than likely a little piece of ovary was left - and this is fairly common since you can not always be sure you get every piece of ovary -
So I would suggest getting a CA-125 blood test to see if this is elevated.
Plus I would also suggest a possible Laparoscopic procedure to place a camera inside of you so that this 3.7 cm cyst can be better identified and if necessary it can be removed at the time of the laparoscopic procedure.
Most likely this is not worrisome - but I think this does deserve some attention given your history.
I hope this helps
