I am a 50 year old who started having left back pain two months ago. After pelvic US discover 3.8 cm complex cyst. Gyro recommended waiting and follow up ultrasound, so two months later repeat ultrasound showed an additional 2.5 cm complex cyst, original was measured at 3.1 cm. Gyno Dr recommended surgery to remove left ovary and both cysts. I still have left back pain, some pain when urinating, constipation, so stomach upset. Part of me wants to continue waiting in pain to see if they resolve, but it's not fun having the not severe but constant ache in my left side. Have a history of thyroid cancer, but have been cancer free for 4 years. I am in perimenopause, periods are very irregular. Went 3 months without a period, had a period, and now it's been two months with no period. Have a surgical consult with gyn/ob at Kaiser Mr. Talbert in Sunnyside Oregon next Thursday. I need advice and suggestions on what to ask Dr. Part of me just wants to do the surgery and get it over with, but the other part thinks what if I wait and they go away? With my history of cancer (I had a 10% chance that my thyroid tumor would have been cancerous and it was) I'm a little leary of just saying that since there is only a slight chance of complex cyst being cancer I shouldn't worry about that. Maybe should have the cancer test? Thanks all for any and all advice!
