Multiple hemmoragic cysts @ 17

I gained about 20 lbs over the course of a year despite healthy eating and regular exercise. I was also getting headaches and stomach aches all the time. I skipped almost a year of periods but figured that was due to working out so much. I went to my doctor because my weight gain has caused me to go into a depression. They found multiple hemorrhagic cysts on my ovaries and I go for another consult on Monday. I am just wondering what my options are? And if removing them by surgery is the only way I'll lose this weight again? I'm only 17 and have no history of cancer in either side of my family.

The odds are very low that you have cancer.  I would not worry about that at all. Just go back to the doctor and let him/her decide what is best for your case and follow their instructions.  You might lose a small amount of weight if they remove your cysts surgically.  You will be fine...so don't worry. You are too young to worry so much.
