Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs or pockets within or on the surface of an ovary. Many women have ovarian cysts at some time during their lives. Most ovarian cysts present little or no discomfort and are harmless. The majority of ovarian cysts disappear without treatment within a few months. However, some ovarian cysts especially those that have ruptured may produce serious symptoms.
There are various types of cysts like follicular cyst, nonfunctional cyst, dermoid cyst, chocolate cyst etc. Follicular cysts dissolve every cycle after release of the egg. Whereas dermoid cyst are a bit tricky and may need treatment or even surgery. Ovarian cysts can hamper the chances of pregnancy. Also there might be cases where ovarian cysts can be malignant or cancerous that needs advanced treatment.
Mostly ovarian cysts do not show any symptoms but symptoms may appear in case the size grows. The symptoms may include:
Abdominal bloating or swelling
Painful bowel movements
Pelvic pain before or during the menstrual cycle
Pain in the lower back or thighs
Nausea and vomiting
It is not that all cysts require surgery. The first line of treatment for ovarian cysts in India is to wait and watch if it changes size or causes severe symptoms. If there are symptoms that the gynaecologist in India may opt for medical management or else a laparoscopic surgery. In case the gynaecologist is having doubt that the cyst can be cancerous then she might suggest a hysterectomy.
