Ovarian cyst
I went to my gynae he told me that I had a cyst on my right ovary and it is 2.73cm x 2.73 cm in size.He suggested that I do an operation in January. Do you think I should go for a second opinion or go ahead with the operation?

This is a very samll cyst and mostly cysts of this size would not need surgery. I don't know, however, what symptoms you are having and whether it was a simple cyst or not.
