I had a history of simple ovaryan cyst in past, so I go to

Customer Question

Hello, i had a history of simple ovaryan cyst in past, so I go to by doctor for check up every 6 month.last year, in August my doctor told me a good news that simple cyst on my left ovary (which was on last check up about 3.5 cm) has resoolved completely. In next 6 monthon follow up still no cysts. Just 3 days ago on my FU they did US and found suspricious cyst on left ovary: 2,3x1.4 with following description - thick irregular walls vs intramural solid 0.6x0.4cm. My doctor offered me to wait 6-8 weeks to repeat US, he thinks it has a chance to resolve. I have no family history of breat or ovaria cancer. I am very nervous no if the wait is right decision. Please advise. Thanks

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Yes, considering the size of the current cyst, waiting and repeating an ultrasound after 6-8 weeks is the right decision.

If it was greater than 5.5cm then I would consider earlier intervention.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you!
