Most ovarian growths will resolve without any treatment. Contraceptive pills are sometimes prescribed to reduce the development of new ovarian cysts. Surgery is an alternative if the cyst becomes bigger in size, or causes pain.
Ovarian cystectomy or cyst excision is a surgical system by which the ovarian cyst is removed either with laparoscopy or an open surgery. The ovaries are generally preserved but if the cyst is too large or connected to ovarian tissue, then removal of the affected ovary may be required.
SYMPTOMS OF OVARIAN CYST
- Irregular menstruation
- A pain in the pelvis. This might be continuous or intermittent dull pain which may spread to the lower back and thighs.
- Pelvic pain may occur just before or after menstruation or during sex.
- Bloating, swelling, or weight in the abdomen
- Occasionally there may be problems in completely emptying the bladder
CAUSES OF OVARIAN CYST
Most women will experience a cyst on the ovaries at least once, and most are painless, cause no symptoms, and are discovered during a routine pelvic exam.
In rare cases, an ovarian cyst can cause serious problems, so it’s best to have it checked by your doctor.
