Cyst from nowhere?

I had my 6-week check today. During the exam my doctor felt a 4cm "something" on my left ovary, which he thought might be a cyst or a hematoma, or "something else." I have been twingeing on that side, but assumed it was recovery related discomfort.

My ultrasound is booked for next week so expect I'll know soon enough. But I am a bit thrown by this development. When I had my surgery (done by another doctor) he said my ovaries were fine, that's why he left them. Has anyone had a similar experience? Surely I haven't developed a golfball-sized cyst in just six weeks? At the same time, he cleared my resume a normal life including sex, work, gym, full housework etc.

I'm a bit nervous and would welcome any input.

LAVH Aug 15, massive fibroids, kept both ovaries.

Cyst from nowhere?

I developed a cyst in about that amount of time that grew very quickly. Fortunately it was before my surgery so it was taken care of.

Women can get cysts that come and go. When they do the ultra sound they will be able to tell if it is a simple cyst or a complex. Simple ones can sometimes be taken care of with meds. My cyst was complex..which basically means hard instead of fluid filled. It turned out to be a dermoid cyst...weird thing with hair and skin and sometimes bone tissue.

Hope things work out for you. Let us know!
