User:she has developed some pain in the abdomen again last week

User:we had a scan done again and the result for the same is as under
User:Realtime ultrasonography of abdomen and pelvis
User:left ovary measures 4.5 cms*3.0 cms

User:is this a concern and what do you suggest
Doctor:This seems not like a serious concern
Doctor:Wait and watch would be ideal
Doctor:She can go on hormonal pills for sometime
Doctor:Seems like there is hyperoestrogenic state
User:what is that
Doctor:Is her menstrual cycles regular?
User:yes she has it on the 8th of this month
Doctor:There is too much of oestrogen stimulating the ovaries. That is why there are 2 cysts/dominant follicles
Doctor:If her cycles are regular, there is no need for the hormonal pills
Doctor:The size of the cysts are not concerning
Doctor:they can be left alone
User:we also had the transvaginal scan done the results are the same
Doctor:May I know her weight and height?
User:her weight is 69 kgs
User:and height is 5.6
Doctor:Let her reduce a few kilos
Doctor:the scan may be repeated again

User:the only fear is what has already happened in the past
User:where there was a rupture
User:and an emergency
User:so a little worried
Doctor:I understand
Doctor:as long as the pain is bearable it is fine
Doctor:she cannot go in for a radical procedure now as she is only 37
User:what does radical procedure mean
Doctor:It means removal of the uterus and the ovaries and tubes
Doctor:She is not the candidate for it
User:ok, do you suggest going in for homeo treatment for this
Doctor:I do not think there is solution in homeopathy for this

Doctor:Let me tell you this
Doctor:As of now, she is not in danger
