Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

The CA 125 has returned to normal.

This is good news as it means its not cancer and just an infective cause.

But the cyst size has increased slightly ( last was 31x28 mm)

I will advise you to just keep serially following her cyst with an ultrasound every month.

A 38 x 35 mm cyst needs no treatment as long it does not give symptoms or increase more than 50mm x 50 mm.

If it does we need to take it out laparoscopically and see what exactly it is.

As of now there is nothing to worry.

Regards,

Dr. Som MD
