Usually at 5cm or larger, they want to remove it surgically. Cysts larger than 5cm run a greater chance of rupturing and causing infection or other problems. At 9cm, you definitely need surgical removal. I hope all works out regarding the insurance issues.
Shelly is absolutely right. Most doctors like to remove cysts when they reach 5cm or cause a great deal of pain. It is hopeful that they could remove the cyst laprascopically. It is a much easier surgery to recover from than a laparotomy. Please keep us posted on how your doctors appointment goes. Good luck!!
