So recently my gyno found a cyst during a pelvic exam, and I had an ultrasound done the day after. The results showed a 9cm complex ovarian cyst with thin septations and low level echoes. They said based on its appearance, it could be a dermoid cyst, but it is non-specific. I finally met with a gynecologic oncologist who could potentially do the surgery, and he told me that because it is complex, he would like me to get an MRI first to determine if it really is a dermoid or another cyst that may have a chance of shrinking. He wants surgery to be my last option since he would probably have to remove my ovary and tube.
My question is, should I be concerned that this is cancerous? I didn't think too much of the septations and echoes, but once I googled it, most articles said it wasn't always the best thing. I don't have a family history of ovarian cancer, but my mom had breast cancer and my paternal grandmother did and aunt did. My mom was post menopausal and so was my paternal aunt. Honestly I'm freaking out, and the MRI is in a week so I'm nervous and anxious to get it over with. Has anyone had an experience like this (septations and echos) and still had their cyst be benign, just complex?
