Complex Ovarian Cyst

Posted , 5 users are following.

I was diagnosed as having a complex ovarian cyst after a transvaginal ultrasound last week. My doctor referred me to an OBGYN. Th OB called and next week wants a second ultrasound done. Is this necessary? If so, why? Should I be concerned?

    Firstly, dont panic. it maybe they are just trying to get a better look at it. Have they told you how big it is ?

    I had a complex cyst measuring 5cm x 7cm which was on my right ovary, because they couldn't be sure what it what it was I had it removed, along with my ovary and fallopian tube.

    Have they told you anything else ? x

      Thank you for your response. I have not been told anything else. It was my doctor's nurse who called and told me that they were going to send me to an OB. They did say there was good blood flow to it.(?)

    Complex cyst needs to be double checked. I went through a MRI and they found some features that they still cant confirm until the surgery. So it would be worth asking why not MRI instead of a second ultrasound.
