thanks for using health care magic.

Cyst could be functional ( benign ) or malignant cyst.
Hemorrhagic cyst most often are functional cysts that bleed.
There are two worries with hemorrhagic cysts;
-as a result of the bleeding, they may rupture thus aggravating
the bleeding and causing shock then death if quick surgical
intervention is not done and
-secondly, hemorrhagic cyst could be cancerous as well and this
can only be confirmed by biopsy through open surgery or
The ultrasound should indicate if there is fluid in the pouch of
douglas which will indicate that the cyst is bleeding out of its self
an its an indication of surgery.

You should discuss in details with your doctor on the present ultra
sound findings and the possible intervention needed. but surgery
might be the best.
Best regards.
