Thanks for writing in

As per the usg report alone it is advisable to go for surgical removal preferablly by a Laparoscope

You may go for a CBC and vital data if the counts are on higher side, and pulse is raised you should for sure go for a surgical management

Hope this helps
Do write back in case of concern

Wishing your wife a speedy recovery
