I’m 21 years old and recently went to my GP complaining of noticeable (but not severe) pain over my right ovary. I had also missed my last period and had dark discharge for around a week instead.
I was sent to get an Ultrasound. The report notes that “there is a 60 x 60 x 42 mm well-defined hypoechoic lesion in the right ovary with cystic centre. It may represent endometrioma with haemorrhage or complex haemorrhagic cyst. Follow up ultrasound in 2-3 months’ time is recommended. If it is a haemorrhagic cyst it should reduce in size.”
This is the first time I had heard of these conditions and I am panicking. After scouring the web, I couldn’t find many statistics relating more specifically to complex, haemorrhagic cysts.
Should I be worried? I’m travelling overseas soon to a non-English speaking country and also worry about possible torsion or rupturing.
Complex, haemorrhagic cysts seem to have a possible link to cancer whereas endometria is related to infertility. How common are these issues?
My cyst seems quite large to resolve itself. Is it possible to just get it removed?
Thanks for the help
