Hi, I have a cyst in/on the left ovary that was measured a few months ago at just over 3 cm.

Hi there! Since the cyst seems to be growing pretty rapidly, you should really consider having it taken out soon, as your doctor suggested. If it gets larger, it can twist around your ovary and you will end up losing it. Some of the surgery should be covered by your insurance. Maybe you could talk with your insurance company and see what your out of pocket will be.

Hi. First, I'm sorry you are having to deal with this. I was in the exact same situation many years ago and while I didn't want to, I went with the doc's advice and had the surgery.
