Cyst on my ovaries

During a recent check up, my doctor found a cyst on one of my ovaries. We've scheduled an ultrasound for next week. How concerned should I be?

Hi Anonymous,

Ovarian Cysts can actually be normally found in the body-- this is probably why your doctor is following up with an ultrasound to determine the size. 

Here is some more information on Ovarian Cysts: https://www.empowher.com/media/reference/ovarian-cyst

Try to remain positive and not think of the worst possible scenario (I know this is hard to do but keep in mind that you are not alone and Ovarian Cysts are usually benign)

Best of luck,
