Hi

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

Cysts have a high chance of recurrence so that is why you are seeing them.

Also if the capsule of the cyst is not removed completely (decortication) then also there is a chance to recur.

Can you tell me the size of the cyst?

Regards,

Dr. Som Biswas MD

Its a very small cyst.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX ,

Its a very small cyst. Do not worry.

Right now you do not need to do anything. Just get a sonography after 1 month.

If it increases then follow up with me.

Regards,

Dr. Som

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

Do not worry.

Since the size is same most probably its a benign cyst.

It happens in some women without any reason.

Unless you are having discomfort or if the size increases you do not have to do anything about it at all.

Also what was the report of the cyst tissue taken out during laparoscopy?
