She had surgery on November 14,2009 to remove the cyst which was 8cm that time and the operation was successful. This year in April we were shocked to find that she has it again and it has progressed very rapidly.

Hi Anon,

What options have your sister's doctors given her? Is there any way to save her ovary? Unfortunately, she may have to undergo surgery again. What are your sisters thoughts on the possibility of another surgery?
