Re: What is considered a large ovarian cyst?

I was just diagnosed with a 3.6 cm and the doctor said that it is pretty big. If mine doesn't shrink soon or gets over 4 cm they are going to remove it surgically. If yours doesn't go away in a few months (usually they do) and it causing you discomfort you will need to get it removed. I have had mine for about 5 months and no luck of it going away yet, just seems to be getting bigger! So, I guess 4 cm is big enough for them to be concerned and remove it! You still have a ways to go, but make sure to have them monitor it. I go in monthly with a ultrasound.
