Thank you for your query.
Ovarian cysts can vary in size and type.
If it is too big (more than 5 cms), they may need to reduce it size or remove it.
What you need to ask your doctor:
-what kind of cyst it is? Simple or complex.
-if the size is reducing?
- if it is hemorrhagic?
-what the treatment options are.
Your symptoms are suggestive of compression of the surrounding tissues due to the cyst.
A simple cyst
is mostly nothing to worry about unless it twists and cuts off blood supply to the ovary (torsion)
A complex cyst needs to be removed to check for tumor
Medications can reduce the size of simple functional cysts which resolve on its own or can be removed laparoscopically (minimally invasive).
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
Wish you good health.
