The problem that you may be facing is worrying about ovarian cancer diagnosis, professional discussion about options and a clear plan regarding what an ovarian cyst may mean for you concerning management and fertility. You may be finding it difficult to obtain a quick appointment. Following review, I will put all the options of management to you depending on your current fertility status and age. 

Consultation

This usually involves a clinical history and abdominal/internal examination to determine if the ovarian cyst has any unusual features or is causing you pain.

Booking

Should you wish to make an appointment for a private consultation regarding an ovarian cyst, and undertake the next steps, please book this appointment via this website by completing the form at the bottom of the page.

Blood Tests

Blood tests will be needed to exclude sinister abnormalities. Our Royal College of Obstetrician and Gynaecologist guidelines recommend multiple tests in younger women and fewer tests in older women depending on whether you are menopausal or not.

Scans

If you have recently had an ultrasound scan, I may need to send you for a MRI or CT scan depending on what I think the cause of the cyst is.

Follow Up

You will need a further follow-up appointment to discuss the results of tests that you have been sent for.

Surgical Procedures

My laparoscopic (keyhole) specialist training means that the vast majority of ovarian cysts that I remove are done by keyhole surgery. There may be some instances where I will advise you that the ovarian cyst is best removed by a tummy cut operation to reduce the risks to you. Depending on your age and risk factors, you may also be offered removal of both ovaries as well as the fallopian tubes 

Costs

It is difficult to be precise about the costs of a complete assessment for ovarian cysts. I would be happy to provide a more accurate verbal estimate to you based on what is found at the consultation.
