Ovarian cysts are known to change size either leaking or rupturing and reforming, or the fluid being reabsorbed. Usually causing little discomfort as mostly contain clear fluid , this may cause some localised irritation. Blood can also leak into the cyst, this is not unusual, usually from the ovary as this is normally where the cyst gets it’s blood supply from. Some cysts can develop their own blood supply and this may indicate changes in the cyst. Your doctor usually will consider removal of cyst if this happens as this can lead to thickening of the cyst wall and changes to the fluid within the cyst and possibly cancerous changes. It is good that you have had the cyst monitored regularly. I would suggest follow up with your consultant re plan of treatment for this. Hopefully this will help you,
