Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are sacs or pockets filled with fluid found on the surface or within the ovary. Where most women develop ovarian cysts at some point in their lives:

  • Majority of these formations disappear after a while
  • Most of them are harmless
  • They present with little or no symptoms or discomfort

However, rupture of cysts can sometimes be a cause of concern. Some symptoms of ovarian cysts are:

  • Dull pain radiating to lower back and thighs
  • Pelvic pain immediately after periods begin
  • Pain during bowel movements
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Tenderness of breasts
  • Abdominal heaviness
  • Pressure on the bladder with a frequent need to urinate

Types of ovarian cysts

  • Usually harmless
    • Follicular cysts:
      • Form when the follicle does not rupture or the egg, is not released
    • Corpus luteum cysts:
      • Fluid accumulates inside the follicle as the opening of the egg is sealed
