Hey Mich! LOL mine grew 5 cm in 9 days (13 cm total) and yep all of those symptoms. And still, but now add chills. I am the only one with a blanket on in Sacramento LOL.... you have got to call the dr. I know you don't want to but it is the right thing to do.
When I had my first large cyst removed my doctor's words were "it did not get that way overnight." Not really sure how fast they grow, but at the time my doctor thought it had been growing for awhile. Than again, I had been ignoring the symptoms.
Hot flashes and night sweats can be a sign of hormone fluctuations. Not sure if a cyst can cause that or not.
I went from TAH in March 08 with squeaky clean ovaries and no problems or findings to six months later. You have a significant sized cyst on your right ovary (10cm). Yep, I had the symptoms but ignored them. Didn't think anything else could possibly be wrong with me. This was found during my six month check up after the TAH. They can grow rapidly. I have waited now only three weeks from the diagnosis to the surgery (scheduled tommorrow) and I know it is bigger. I can feel it externally.
I thank you have gotten your answer by now but I will add my story to!! I knew I had one in august went to gyn early sept it ruptsured in late sept and first of october I had started developing endometriosis. I had an ultarsound on a thursday and everything was fine the next friday I was having surgery. Also I had all the nite sweats, hot flashes and heavy periods.
