Customer Question

In the past year i have seen 3 different gynos. 1 diagnosing me with endo and the other 2 concluding that im okay. I have two cysts one on my right one on my left. the one on the right is 5 cm and the one on the left is 3cm. I keep getting scans regularly every 3 months. Initially i only had one cysts, 3 months ago the second one appeared. The reason I am writing to you is because during the past two cycles I have had sharp pain in the middle (somewhere below my belly button). Last one it lasted around 30-45 min and then i was okay to get up. But today the pain was so bad, i was sweating profusely and felt faint and nauseous. I took a pain killer (paracetamol) and it slightly got better but i still feel some sort of pressure now when i walk but not when im sitting. One of the doc suggested i have surgery (laporoscopy) which really freaked me out. The other two suggested I lead a healthy life style with plenty of exercise. They believe the cysts will eventually rupture or dissolve.

Hello, I'm Dr Manos, M.D., board certified ObGyn. Have you had the cyst on the right ovary from when you were first told about a cyst? Was it 5 cm in size from the get go? It may be twisting and if it is at least 5 cm then laparoscopic removal should be considered. It could twist again and damage the ovary it's attached to.
