I'm not an expert but it does look like she has two ovarian cysts with one being a dermoid cyst. These can cause a lot of symptoms and hopefully she is now set to get this dealt with. Do take a look at the health pages (top right) for info on types of cysts and symptoms. In her case it is likely they will use a laparoscope and remove the cysts. What did they say the next steps were? It is likely that MedHelp will move your posting to the Ovarian Cyst forum. Do keep us posted over there.
I have had many ovarian cysts. I presented with cronic stomach pain, so bad that I too was vomiting. Irregular periods are also a very common sign.
There is not much that can be done other than surgery to remove them. My first surgery involved the removal of a cyst about the size of a gala melon.... so rather large! I went on to have 2 more surgeries to remove painful cysts. It is not the cyst itself that is painful, as they are usually harmless, it is the pulling and twisting of the organs that they attach themselves to.
Thankfully, I have gone 3 years with no further problems. The surgery was no worse than a caesarean andi was up and about the very next day.
