Ovarian Systs

Diagnosed with ovarian systs, put on Diane contraceptive. But how do I know it' s not cancerous. No blood tests done. GP says if not shrunk by six weeks will remove surgically. But why must I wait six weeks to find out if it' s cancer or can they by a scan see its not cancerous. am I over reacting.

Cancerous cysts usually have a particular appearance on scan. Removal of the cysts would not necessarily be because of cancer.
