What is considered a large ovarian cyst?
Just wondering if anyone knows what doctors consider to be a large ovarian cyst. My last ultrasound revealed one that is 2.5cm on my left ovary, and the doctor said they usually don't do surgery on one that "small". But it seems to be big enough to cause me excruciating pain not only at ovulation time, but almost every other day of the month. Even on days that I'm not in actual pain, I still feel mild to moderate discomfort all the time. But I have heard of some women ending up with a cyst the size of a grapefruit, so I'm really unsure how they are classed.
