I am 40 years old,a mother of 2 and I'm scared to death.I am sick everday,nauseated,dizzy,i use to weigh 123 now I'm 101 finally as of friday,prior to that 97.3....Thank u very much.Dawn
you have a great doctor who is really carefully checking you out.
you may need that ovary surgically removed. There is a small risk it is cancerous but most big cysts are benign.
I am sorry for your stress. But you are in good hands
please let us know what happens
