Hello Afandi,


Ovarian cysts are abnormal cell growths on the ovaries that form fluid-filled sacs. Generally, cysts are benign and harmless, and can even go away on their own. However, in certain conditions the presence of a cyst can cause several problems such as infertility or cancer.


The size of the cyst of 5 cm is moderate, some patients even have very large cysts, about 9-15 cm or more. In considering the surgery, the doctor does not only look at the size, but also the symptoms or complaints experienced by the patient, suspicion of cancer and menopausal status. So it is difficult for a doctor to determine if the cyst needs to be removed only by knowing the data about its size.


If with a size of 5 cm without disturbing symptoms, impaired fertility, no suspicion of cancer (one of which can be assessed from ca125 normal) and not yet menopausal, the doctor will recommend treatment and changes to a healthy lifestyle. For more details, you can do a direct consultation with a gynecologist. Here we attach several articles related to your question:
