Dear Doctor,

I have an ovarian cyst in the right side which is 3.8cm and my doctor could not tell me clearly what to do. Can you please tell me if it is serious and should I be operated upon?

Dear Trigger,

Pl. check with the doctor why they are not giving her some chemotherapy before the surgery , which kills some of the cancerous cells & prevents its spreading during surgery.

One of the effective treatment schedules is chemotherapy - surgery - chemotherapy (again).

My wife has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She is to go for surgery this week. She has a cyst the size of two softballs streching from hip to hip. I am trying to learn what I can about this to help her in any way I can. Since this is known as the silent killer for women over 45, you should make sure your doctor checks you for this to. She would not have even known about it without the catscan of with and without conrtrast. If anyone has info on this, please post so I can learn more about this. Thank you.
