Doctor:Let me tell you about the disease
Doctor:These are simple cysts
Doctor:Commonly seen in reproductive age group women
Doctor:Occurs with mensus
User:1 min
Doctor:Due to high oestrogen
User:i want to metnion one point, i went for a general check two months back to the same clinic. that time also they did such test. that time it was measuring 7cm
User:they told it might neeed to be operated
User:but i can try my luck
User:my luck favoured,hence here iam now
Doctor:I get your point
User:that 7cm is now 9cm
Doctor:Let me explain further to you
Doctor:I agree that it has increased from 7cm to 9cms now
Doctor:This cyst occurs in estrogen excess as I said
Doctor:In pregnancy, Progesterone will increase and estrogen will decrease
Doctor:So, when estrogen level falls down, the cyst will stop growing
Doctor:That is why nothing needs to be done like surgery
Doctor:It needs only observation
Doctor:Very rarely, it may still grow in pregnancy
Doctor:Even then it is not a problem
Doctor:IT will not affect the pregnancy
Doctor:Only if it causes symptoms, then it can be removed surgically
User:ohh,,thanks a lot,,my bp was rising since i did the test
User:i am still shivrring in fear
Doctor:Please relax
Doctor:You are absolutely normal
Doctor:Nothing is wrong with you
Doctor:All will go well
User:now,,can u tell me if any special precaution required for this?
Doctor:If you have a caesarian section, the cyst can be removed at the time of the CS itself
Doctor:Precaution would be to repeat the ultrasound once in 5 th month to check the status of the endometrioma
