Ugh, I'm a woman that hopes that after menopause they don't say it looks like I had been ovulating! I think cysts are more common before menopause but after happens. Still usually harmless. Two types are common after menopause: 1. dermoids, which develop from cells you’ve had since birth and 2. cystadenomas, which grow on the surface of the ovary. So, you had the ovaries removed already after the finding of increased cysts? What did the tumor marker show?
