Complex tubo ovarian cyst
Hi Doc,
After having a ultrasound on Friday, they found I have a complex tubo ovarian cyst/mass, it's a solid mass measuring 6.5cm x 4.5cm. This concerns me a little because I had a laparoscopy in the begining of the year and I'm surprised how quickly it's grown, is this normal?

2) I'm a little disappointed in my Gyne as he didn't pick this up after a visit in the begining of the month when I went to see him, he also said I should come in during this week so that we can discuss the surgery. Is this something that requires more urgency? Should I go see somenone else? I don't like changing doctors but I somehow think I might not be getting the best care.

Any advise would be appreciated!

Thanks and regards.

This is something that could easily have developed since the beginning of the year.
If you are discuusing surgery this week, that sounds fine.

Best wishes
