Cyst outside ovary


Advice needed!!

I went for my first appt and scan to start my 2nd cycle of icsi at my clinic, they found a 4.5 / 5cm cyst that looked like it was outside/coming off my ovary, they could see 2 follies within the ovary and said that was normal. They want to re scan me in a few weeks and said it may need to be removed. I am really worrying about this now, I know I would not be able to have laparoscopy as I had one to remove an ovary and it didn't work due to extensive abdominal adhesions so any surgery in that area would mean Laparotomy.

Can cysts outside an ovary just go on their own? it was very clear on the scan, a big very black blob! I have had lots of crampy pains but this is normal for me since my sx to remove an ovary.

Anyone had a cyst like this?

I had cysts outside the ovary, 5cm, 8cm and 10cm on 1 ovary. My cons left me a while to see if they would go down on their own. I know they can be drained so that may be a possibility for you chick. Mine were as a result of OHSS.

Did they not try to get rid of the adhesions? I had adhesions and had them removed whilst having the cystectomy.

My cons told me that he wasn't worried unless the cysts got to over 6cm (which they did).

Hopefully it will go down on its own honey.

Hi, just wanted to pop in and say that I have had a cyst on my left ovary for years, and has varied in size. I have had it drained twice before the IVF treatment however it just seems to refill. The hosp has said that aslong as I dont have any pain then it can remain there, they also said that I cant affect IVF treatment as it bypasses that area anyway.

I would just make sure he hosp are monitoring it and as long as you feel healthy.
Take care
