Postmenopausal Ovarian Cysts Following Is it important?
Ovarian cysts detected in the post-menopausal period should be followed closely and for a short time, unlike those found in young and middle ages, and a definitive diagnosis should be made.
Patients with a cyst size less than 5 cm and a normal level of CA125 or HE4 in the blood can be monitored for a short period of time for the cyst to disappear. In follow-up, surgery is considered if the cyst does not shrink or tumour markers increase. In the menopausal period, direct surgery should be planned if the cyst is seen in both ovaries or there is a growth in follow-ups, if the cyst features are changing and / or if there is a family history of breast and ovarian cancer.
