Hi All, You all came to my aid years ago when I had a ruptured cyst that my last doctor was not very helpful with an explanation..Well, years later and I feel like I am just as uninformed as I was back then... I will try to be breif.... I have cysts that come and go as follicles, simple and complex..never to be more then 3.5 cm..Now my last ultrasound shows: six nodules throughout uterus between 1-2 cm in size - left ovary contains several and at least 3 cyst that measure up to 8mm .. started out years ago with 1 and now have all this...My OB was making me go every 4-6 months for ultrasound..I am in pain and on BC for 2 years...I am 38 and no children...I have never had a test for endo. and know it can turn out real bad if left ... docs nurse called me tonight and said, oh u r fine and thats repeat in ?? or its been 2 years since your last exam, come in...My question is, should I continue to keep an eye on these cyst, whether its every 6 months or even years? My aunt did have Ovarian Cancer and I have a lof of other health issue, 1 being a bone disease that I was told, BC could cause osteo...So now what? I am not "worried", just a little anoid as I do have issues, head to toe and I feel like noone cares at all... I dont mind if a doc. says ok dont worry but after 4 years why now ?? maybe I am over thinking all this BUT the pain and oh yeah being bloated, I could really do without..very very confused and frustated..need real answers from real people...TY all, I appreciate any and all comments...God bless and be well...xoxoxo
