Brief Answer:
Better to remove.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am,
Thanks for trusting us about your healthcare.
I have gone through your history and reports and understand your concern.

As you are having these symptoms along with changes in size and consistency of cyst with solid component in it, it is better to consult your treating doctor for the same and get laparoscopy removal of cyst and biopsy to rule out the possibility of carcinoma (which at your age could be a possibility).

Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.

Good luck
Regards

so the chances of it being cancer or more likely? any chance that the hemorrhagic cyst has changed as a normal change or is that less likely? do i have the right to demand its removal or have they got the right to make me do a wait and see?

is it the fact that the nodule is now there that is the concern? which is more concerning my age symptoms or the actual cyst? would you be as concerned if i had no symptoms or would that make no difference?

Brief Answer:
Yes, the hard nodule is a concern.

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am,
Sorry for the delay in my response.

Yes, the hard nodule is a concern for the same.
Sometimes symptoms are not there but yes a sudden increase in size and consistency at your age is a cause of concern.

Hope you found this useful. Feel free to ask further.
