Thanks for posting your query. I have read it with diligence.

You were found to have a 2 inch complex cyst in the ovary and also got your CA-125 level done.

Your CA125 is normal (up to 35 is normal).

Complex ovarian cysts are followed up at intervals of 12 to 16 weeks. No active management will be required unless you are symptomatic.

Yes, they could go away spontaneously too.

Your doctor has advised correctly. No need to worry at present.

Report to your treating doctor, if you develop new symptoms.

Let me know if you have more queries.

With warm regards
