I had an ultrasound last October and was told I had a large (10cm) cyst on my left ovary.
They said they would check it again at a different point in my cycle.
I had another ultrasound in November and again in Debember - both times I had transvaginal ultrasounds. The cyst was now bigger (12cms) and they said it was a hemmoragic cyst and I would need referring to a gynaecologist.
I saw the gynaecologist last week. He examined me, took 3 swabs and blood test. He also said he could feel the cyst on internal examination without trying to feel it.
He said because the size is not reducing and it was a "complex hemorrhagic cyst" it would need removing but he would order a MRI so they can get a better look at it and I would then need to see him again in 4 weeks when he would have the swab and MRI results.
I've had a MRI appointment letter a few days ago and today I have received a CT scan letter. I phoned the hospital assuming it's a mistake as he didn't say anything about a CT and I was told it's not a mistake and they are just "being thorough"
I've had 3 ultrasounds, swabs, blood tests, internals and now I've got to have an MRI and a CT scan on it.
Why all the tests? Surely that's overkill unless they are concerned about something I don't know about?
I'm freaking out a little bit and so I'm hoping someone can give me their experience or offer an opinion as to why they are doing all the tests if cysts really are that common?
