Ovarian cysts are very common in women. Ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac in an ovary or on its surface. Sometimes they may be filled with blood or tissue. However, the majority of cysts are not cancerous. Many women have ovarian cysts and are unaware of their presence. It is when the cyst becomes too large or twists that pain occurs and a woman knows something is wrong.
Ovarian cysts are diagnosed by clinical symptoms, exam, an ultrasound done by your provider. There are multiple treatment options such as birth control pills, laparoscopy, laparotomy, and more. Your doctor will work with you to choose the best treatment option, depending on the size of the cyst and other factors. Continually monitoring the progress of the cyst in the future by repeat ultrasound or surgery are the most commonly approached options. Birth control can be used to prevent future cyst growth, but it will not make current cysts disappear.
