So, I have an ovarian cyst.
Better to know than not know.
A lot of women have them, I’m told
There are four types of ovarian cysts:
many are benign
a few types are malignant.

Take your pick from the articles below. The first one is a “just the facts, ma’am kind of article. The second one is more warm and fuzzy.

For terrifying fun reading about cysts read this article.

The friendly, simplified facts are here in a much longer article on Medicinenet.com.

The best way to have an ovarian cyst diagnosed
is to have an ultrasound and a transvaginal ultrasound.
Those were done on Friday, so now I wait.

I did go to my appointment with my Midwife.
She delivered Girlie three years ago.
My appointment was at 7:20am, which was good
I got it out of the way, then could move on
with the rest of my day.

The midwife was really thorough and immediately
scheduled me to meet with the next OBGYN who will
visit their office. So, I wait for January…

  1. I had one about the size of a grapefruit on one ovary. They removed the cyst and ovary because it had basically disintegrated. It was benign. If I remember right, I think most of them tend to be. Hang in there, hon. We’ll be waiting with you. ❤

    1. I was scheduled for a biopsy before I received the ultrasound cyst results.I may give the midwife’s office a call to ask what size it is or do I need to try to get a sooner appointment?

      Thanks for the support. I’m finding that a lot of women have had cysts removed and they were mostly benign.

      I’ll let you know what I know as soon as I know…:)

      1. How do they do a biopsy? I didn’t have to have that. They just went in the same place I had my C-section and took it off. Couple years later they went in and took everything out. (Now my damn bladder is wigglin’ around all over the place! 😦 )

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
