What is Ovarian Cyst?

Ovarian cysts are fluid or tissue filled sacs in the ovary or on its surface. Most ovarian cysts are benign (not cancer) and are related to the normal functioning of the ovary. Some of these will go away on their own. Others may cause pain and require surgery to remove them. Rarely can they be cancerous.

Typical Symptoms of Ovarian Cyst

  • Stomach pain or tummy ache in a specific place

  • Lump or swelling in the abdomen/stomach

  • Lower abdominal pain

  • Stomach feels bloated

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Pain in the pelvis- the lowest part of the abdomen, between the belly button and groin

  • Abdominal pain

  • Abdominal discomfort

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Ovarian Cyst

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Is your stomach pain localized to one specific area?

  • Do you have a lump or swelling in your abdomen?

  • Do you have lower abdominal pain?

  • Do you feel that your abdomen or stomach is bloated?

  • Are you feeling nauseous or have you been vomiting?

Treatmentof Ovarian Cyst

Treatment depends on the type of ovarian cyst and whether it is causing problems for the patient. Some can be monitored to see if they will resolve on their own. Others may require surgery to drain them or remove them. Hormonal medications such as birth control can be used to reduce the risk of forming new cysts.
