Hi all, I'm 19 y/o, and four months ago, I found out that I have a 5.5 cm complex ovarian cyst. I *recently* just found out that the cyst is inside the ovary which is normal... This whole time, I thought it was on top of the ovary meaning it would be an easy surgery. I understand the doctor has to tell me all the scary things to cover their butts, but I'm not sure what to expect. Dr. said that there is a 1% chance (for my age) that the cyst is cancerous which leads to the decision to remove the ovary. They won't know until they look at the cyst in the surgery. From the beginning, they told me that the cyst is complex, meaning it is solid and not fluid. But now they tell me that they don't know that for sure until they look at the actual cyst. If it is solid, there is a 10-15% chance of losing my ovary because it is too big to break down. Ladies, what should I be expecting? Is there a good reason for my anxiety at the moment? Do you relate and what was the outcome? Thanks!
