Anyone had a cyst for years? Mine is 4 years old today

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was at the doctors yesterday as I'm having pain again in my simple 5cm cyst. She pointed out that it's been FOUR YEARS since it was discovered. In that time it hasn't changed size at all.

I guess ive been lucky in that I've only had 2 or 3 episodes over the years of very bad pain. One ended with a hospital stay and morphine.. i thought it had burst but no. just grumbling. They decided all along to leave it be rather than remove it.

I'm having terrible pain this week after a year of no symptoms. It may be time to insist it comes out.

Anyone else have one for so long?

    I had a 5cm simple cyst for 2 years before they removed it and it and my ovary. I obviously havent had any more cysts on that side and the other side has only had 2 very small ones come and go over the last 4 years.
