How do they do a biopsy on an ovarian cyst to see if it is cancer? What is the recovery time?

Posted by mommaC

My Doctor found a cyst on my ovary and said that she would need to run some tests.  I am a little concerned and she is not the best at answering questions, so I came here for help!!  Any information would be great!

Doctors inject a needle into the ovary & take a very small sample & then have it tested at Pathology Lab, sounds like u caught it in time because Ovary Cancer is a silent killer & do not show any side affects or pain I'v been told by a doctor.
Have you already had an internal Ultra sound performed? it's inserted into your Vagina and stonographer can see it very clearly, i hope this helps you understand all this medical jargon :)
