Variables Associated with Resolution and Persistence of Ovarian Cysts
This prospective cohort study evaluated 2,683 individuals with incidental cysts discovered during ovarian cancer screenings to determine what factors are associated with cyst resolution over time. Characteristics such as smaller cysts, septated cysts, younger age, premenopausal status, and family history of ovarian cancer were associated with an increased percentage of cyst resolution overall, and factors including older age and lack of hormone therapy were associated with a faster rate of cyst resolution over time. The findings of this study indicate that different surveillance times may be appropriate, depending on cyst morphology and patient characteristics.
