The Dr office left me a message that I had a fibroid on my uterus and a cyst on my right ovary and there wasn't anything we could do about that. Well... the fibroid I was aware of but ovarian cysts are not common after menapause so I don't like that answer at all. I put in a call to the Dr saying just that ... and reminding her of my high risk for ovarian cancer. This is just my GP not the Oncologist. Should I pursue more tests of the cycst or should I except that it's okay. Has anyone had a cyst after "chemical (chemo) menapause"? Thanks for listening. Jamie

    Hi Jamie! I think if I were told I had a cyst on my ovarie from a GP I would go see my Gynocologist. That's their speciality. I think I would want to pursue it a bit beyond There's nothing to do. If the GYN agrees, then I would be a bit more comfortable but would keep a close watch on it. Good luck! Keep us informed about your decision and the end result! HUGS!! Cathy

    Jjamie, get a second opinion. It may be nothing to worry about, but you will worry until you know for sure. I'd sure check with your oncologist. Sandy

    If you have any concerns, get it biopsied. Better to live with "gee you guys were right all along" than "wonder if is cancer". You are the customer (patient) - do what you want...... Debw

    Please pursue it. It may be nothing, but it is better to know for sure. I had a great gynocologist who pursued my case and found that I had mets.

    Love, hugs and prayers,

    My mom is post menopausal (for atleast 15 yrs.) and has had 2 cysts removed. The first one was about 4 yrs. ago and the most recent was 1 1/2 yrs ago.It might be uncommon, but it can happen.
