Customer Question
I am a healthy...

I am a healthy 54 year old woman with a previously diagnosed simple ovarian cyst that has now upon follow up ultrasound been diagnosed as a cyst with some debris and it has grown a bit. I am freaking out.

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?

No

Doctor's Assistant: OK. Got it. Last thing - JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Gynecologist about your situation and then connect you two.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
