14 weeks pregnant and flying in a week!

I recently underwent my first ultrasound for my first child and it was shown I have an ovarian cyst about the size of a tennis ball. I'm heading down east to visit my parents in a week and want to make sure myself nor baby will be affected? Is it considered safe to fly? I havent experienced any pain or anything so I want to think its not a big concern. Would they have to surgically remove it? Or with being preggo is it even an option?

HI,
An ovarian cyst the size of a tennis ball is significant and will need further evaluation regarding its nature. Sometimes ovarian cysts require removal even during pregnancy if they grow rapidly or if torsion or other complications occur. Have a check up with your Doctor and an ultrasound scan before flying.
Hope this helps.
