Ovarian Cysts

I have had several ultrasounds and one MRI of my ovaries lately. I have a cyst on my left ovary that was large so they repeated in 2 months and it had grown, so my Dr. had me get an MRI which it had still grown, so she sent me to an OBGYN which sent me for another ultra sound and did the CA125 test and OVA1 test (which be careful because my insurance is not covering it) 17 is my result and a 4.3 on the other test. Anyway, I was suppose to go in for surgery on August 10th 2016 to get the left ovary removed and the right one looked at and some biopsies but when I went on medical leave my place of employment immediately cancelled my insurance so I have had to go back to work and cancel my insurance and I am freaking out because this is my body not theirs and I am no further to an answer now as I was at my first appointment back in January 2016. I also have fibromyalgia which the enlarged ovary and stress is causing alot more flare ups. Plus I have lumps that keep popping up around my lower back/spine. Okay sorry for venting but this is my last reading from the last ultrasound which is the one that has me most worried to to the wording and other things I have read on different sites that people have posted.
Okay so here is the impression note:
COMPARISON: MRI pelvis dated April 25, 2016

Uterus is been removed

Right ovare measures 3.0 x 2.1 x 2.1 cm with positive flow. Markers are present on the right ovary. there is a more dominant follicle with internal septation measuring 18 x 17mm. This has a simple internal septation.

Left ovary measures 7.7 x 6.0 x 5.6 cm. Left ovary contains a large anechoic cyst measuring 7.6 x 5.8 x 5.4 cm. Small peripheral internal septation. No internal solid component or internal vascular flow seen. In comparison to prior MRI examination, this structure has not significantly changed.

This was done a month after the MRI but the part that I do not understand is the (Markers are present on the right ovary) what does this mean?

Please help, my nerves have been tangled for 8 months and now they are just shot :(

The is crazy about your work. It is only 9 days to go until surgery. I like riding horses so I took pictures with my friends at the barn. I came up with a whole story of going out to the barn and riding plus everything else. You pick something like that. You think of this before surgery it brings the stress down. I had pictures printed out of my favorite things. This got me through before and after. My husband uses bicycling before procedures because that is what he likes. The more details the better. This is what meditation is. Oh and breathing. Concentrate on your normal breath. We forget to breath when we are scared. Hang in there I am in your court.

And how dare your job do this to you?  I totally understand about staffing requirements and all...to cancel someone's health insurance??
Going through the stress of the unknown is hard enough.  

I have been taking sick days since I have been going through many tests and emotionally, I am just not in the mood to go to work in a hostile environment.

When my ordeal is over - I will be hoping to take a very long break from working ANYWHERE and maybe go on a trip.  I can't take the stress lately  - and you should do what's right for you. You probably should look for another job if you can.... Good luck.  <3

How are you doing?  Any thing new?

I read your us reports.. I have a septated cyst as well..   I don't know what Markers means, though.  

Looks like maybe you have complex cysts that they are keeping a watch on?  I'm not a doctor, but it seems to be that they are not concerned much about the septations.  And no solids inside is good!
