I had a private early scan a few weeks ago and the sonographer picked up on a cyst on my right ovary measuring 7cm. I'm pretty sure a cyst was spotted during my first pregnancy but they didn't seem bothered by it and that was that. I went for my 12 week NHS scan today and coincidentally saw the same sonographer as at my private scan. He checked the cyst again and it measures the same size. He doesn't think it's anything to be concerned about but has recommended that I see the consultant for them to check it and determine whether it needs further management. My appoinment is booked for the end of April.
Im sure it's all fine but I can't help but feel a little concerned. Has anyone else experienced similar during pregnancy?

I had a 5cm cyst at my private early scan at 7 weeks and it was still there at my NHS early scan at 9 weeks but it wasn't mentioned at my 12 week scan and I wasn't referred. At the early scans I was told it was nothing to worry about and I think I read online it would retract as my pregnancy progressed.
Maybe you've been referred as its still there?
Sorry that wasn't much help was it! X

cysts are very common in early pregnancy and usually go again or shrink in later pregnancy, If it continues to grow they'll keep an eye on it but nothing to worry about

Thanks ladies. From what I've read, they're quite common and not usually anything to worry about so I'm going to try not to worry and just wait and see what the consultant says in a few weeks.

I had one at my early private scan (7+4) but it had gone by the 12 week scan. The sonographer said they are very common in early pregnancy.
