What are Ovarian Cysts? An Ovarian Cyst is a large fluid-filled sac that can

develop within or on the ovary. It is of two types simple which means thin wall

filled with fluid or can be complex that it means that it may contain thick fluid

blood or solid areas. How common are Ovarian Cysts? Ovarian Cysts are very

common most women will be unaware that they have a cyst as they often cause no

symptoms and usually disappear spontaneously with time but one in ten

women may need surgery at some point in their lives. What are the Symptoms?

They are often asymptomatic and found either incidentally during physical

examination by Gyanecologists or when a patient shows some symptoms like nausea,

vomiting pain in the abdomen, pelvis, lower back, thigh or unusual bleeding. How

are they Diagnosed? As said they are usually diagnosed by either a physical

examination by a gynaecologist or by imaging studies such as a pelvic

ultrasound or an MRI. What are the causes of Ovarian Cysts? The most common causes

of simple ovarian cysts are : 1) Hormonal Problems as seen in Polycystic

Ovarian Disease. 2) Endometriosis where the cyst filled with blood

3) Pregnancy in which corpus luteal cyst is present to support the

pregnancy initially. 4) Severe Pelvic Infections in

which ovaries and fallopian tubes are stuck together to form a mass. Can

Ovarian Cysts affect Fertility? Not all ovarian cysts affect fertility. Some

cells that become very large and require treatment like surgery or medication may

reduce fertility. Polycystic Ovary Disease and endometrioma are known to

affect fertility. Can Ovarian Cysts cause Cancer? Yes, rarely ovarian cysts can be

cancerous the risk increases with age and family history. Postmenopausal women

with ovarian cysts have a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. What are the

treatment options? Treatment Option is dependent on the patient's age their

fertility status, symptoms and how large the cyst is. Treatment can be

conservative or medical in which patients are told to wait and watch as

majority of the cysts disappear on their own. In cases of larger cyst or when

symptomatic conditions like pain during periods is present or in cases of

twisting of the ovary then surgical option is taken. Complex cyst usually

required further evaluation and surgical removal may be needed. Why should you
