Are Ovarian Cysts Dangerous And Need Surgery?
Hello, I’m 20, I said the doctor said there was a cyst 4.5, was it dangerous or not, should I have surgery or not, I need guidance. Thank you
Hello Anita, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
I assume the cyst 4.5 you are referring to is an ovarian cyst with a diameter of 4.5 cm. If my assumptions are correct, then I will discuss a few things about ovarian cysts.
Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form in the ovary which are divided into two types, namely functional cysts and pathological cysts. Functional cysts are caused by menstrual cycles, and can disappear by themselves, whereas pathological cysts contain abnormal cells, some of which contain cancer cells.
Symptoms and signs of ovarian cyst disease is usually more bleeding than usual during menstruation, irregular menstrual cycles, difficulty conceiving, pelvic pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and difficulty urinating or urinating. But there are also sufferers of ovarian cysts that do not show any symptoms.
The following indications do cyst removal:
Cause symptoms that interfere with daily activities Large cyst size or above 5 cm Cysts occur during menopause Usually observations are first made for the next 3 months by the doctor, to evaluate the size of the cyst, whether it can shrink by itself with the female hormonal cycle. If it still does not shrink, the doctor usually recommends removing the cyst. However, all actions are always carried out with the patient's consent. Doctors can only recommend some of the best course of action, but it is still the patient who determines each decision. Do not hesitate to consult directly with a specialist obstetrician and gynecologist about your current condition.
The things you can do right now are:
- Avoid foods that are high in fat
- Avoid consumption of wine, durian, and jackfruit, which contain alcohol
- Avoid alcoholic drinks
- Avoiding drinks and foods containing preservatives
- Avoid seafood because it has high cholesterol
- Regular exercise and adequate rest
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully can help you.
