He was able to save 1/2 of one overie but the other was destroyed completely and could not be saved.My question is, what are the odds of this happening ? Have you heard of so many ? One was so large it was flipping and moving . The pain wa so severe she was vomiting.I just worry another will develop in the overie that is left. How rare was this ?

Current question is regarding a 3cm dermoid cyst on my left

Current question is regarding a 3cm dermoid cyst on my left ovary. The background story is that in January 2013 I went to the ER for crippling pelvic pain, which I thought may have been a complication of a new IUD I had placed a few weeks before. The sonogram they performed showed the IUD in good placement, but at that time they discovered a "2.4 cm left ovary lesion suggesting a dermoid." A follow up sonogram with my OBGYN 3 months later showed it hadn't grown and I hadn't had symptoms since then, so we left it. Recently the pain has been more recurrent. It's a constant dull ache with some episodes of acute pain. I had another sonogram last week that shows it is 'around 1 inch' (according to the phone conversation I had with my OB). He is still suggesting we just leave it alone unless the pain gets to be more consistent or other complications occur. Everything that I have read about dermoids suggests they should be removed once discovered because they will not go away, and will only grow over time. Is watchful waiting an appropriate response in this case? Should I seek a second opinion?Are there benefits to waiting? Lastly, if I do have the surgery with the size of the cyst now, what kind of recovery time can I expect?I'm 29, no fertility issues or other health complications. I have 4 children but I'm not 100% sure if I'm done yet. It wouldn't be the end of the world if I were to lose the ovary, but I'm assuming that would be an even longer recovery period.

Dear Dr,I am 32 YO female ,married for 3 years,I didn't get pregnant befor because we were using natural contraceptive methods.

Normal sized left ovary with no follicles and multiloculated /septated complex legion on the right adenexa with no good visualization to the right ovary.

I have an ovarian cyst 4.2mm x 2.6mm x 2.1mm. It has a solid

I have an ovarian cyst 4.2mm x 2.6mm x 2.1mm. It has a solid component, thick septum and (I think) vascular flow (I noticed blue and red patches on the colour doppler).I've been told it will be removed, but rather vaguely. I have a pre-op for day surgery to remove this laprascopically, however, I have had an appendectomy, Pfannenstiel scar from bilateral salpingectomy and a cesaerean. How likely will these affect things.I asked if the ovary would be removed, but was just told that they would try to leave the ovary. How likely would this be?I'm concerned that the op will turn into a laparotomy (I have twin sons who are 21 months) and take longer to recover from. Given the twins, I may need help for longer and need to plan properly.I'm really anxious about this, but am being told very little. I also had CA125 tests which have been normal, but don't know most recent results.

Hello, I have just been diagnosed with a 8 x 9 cm dermoid

Hello, I have just been diagnosed with a 8 x 9 cm dermoid cyst with hemorraghic around the cyst, inflammation of the ovary and hydrasalphinx. I am in pain, stomach is bloated with weakness. My ob gyn suggested that I need to have the cyst removed, and I'm concerned about what procedures are likely in this case, and how fertility may be affected. Also, I'm wondering if this is something that needs to happen rather urgently instead of waiting for it to dissolve or go away... please help
