Ovarian Cyst
A 5cm. ovarian cyst was discovered after a routine scan. Blood tests have established that it is not cancerous. It has been suggested that I have another scan in two months time in order to confirm whether it has grown larger. Is surgery recommended? I am 53. Thank you.

If it is larger, you should have it removed.
