Hi im just wondering what these small lumps are in my belly? I have had ovarian cysts for 8 yrs now and im not sure if this has to do with my ovaries or not, my periods are not normal and have had alot of abnormal bleeding and excrusisating pain Do you think that I will need a hysterectomy?and is this what it could be im concerned thankyou:)
Small ovarian cysts may not need surgery. The possibility of polycystic ovaries PCOS needs to be excluded. But if the ovarian cysts are large then they may need surgery. The surgery can be removal of the cysts only. The need for hysterectomy will depend on the extent of the problem, associated problem with the endometrium or uterus and also the desire for child bearing etc. Consult your Doctor for a detailed evaluation.
Hope this helps.
