complex ovarian cyst, constant bloating & peeing

Am menopausal 57 yr old, have had complex ovarian cyst since 2008..... menopause started in 2010...
ever since menopause, have had constant - always there lower abdominal bloating, constant peeing - doesnt' empty completely and sometimes need to go 2-3 times in 5-10 min period, have lots indigestion that antacids don't seem to help, and 6 weeks ago, lower back pain....(but am thinking lower back pain due to healthclub possibly)  

had vaginal ultrasound in 2008, 2012, 2013
in 2012, left hypoechoic lesion measured 2.6 x 2.0 x 1.6cm
in 2013, left hypoechoic lesion measured 2.5 x 2.4 x 1.8cm  
I am worried, Ob/gyn says watch and wait and that size #'s staying the same...but
the 2013 #'s look slightly larger to me - or is is increase in size insignificant.

Also, in 2012, had bleeding, endometrial biopsy showed nothing.

(in 2008, left breast bleeding with lump, discovered dcis, treated with lump. & rad.,
as such, constant bloating, and diagnosis of complex cyst  cause me to be  nervous)

Is more testing warranted -  or -  are these #'s normal for menopausal women having complex
cyst that won't go away and causing discomfort?

How about a 2nd opinion?  

I have no idea if it is something to worry about or not, but, if you are not getting answers you are comfortable with, then it's a good idea to check with someone else.
