I recently had a 9cm endemetrioma removed from my right ovary; I know that it was cut away rather than simply being drained. Soon I'll be going to see the consultant for the follow up appointment.
My question is this: What proportion of women that have these type of cysts removed end up growing more?
And, what is considered the best method (aside from oophorectomy) for preventing a recurrence of endemetriomas?
From looking on this forum, it seems like there's a strong likelihood of getting more, but I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how common recurrences actually are...
