CYST OF OVARIES

An cyst could be a collection of fluid within the ovary. The overwhelming majority of female internal reproductive organ cysts don't seem to be cancerous. There are 2 kinds of cysts – simple cysts and complex cysts.

Ovarian cysts are quite common in women at procreative age. once an egg is developing and discharged from the ovary, i.e. throughout ovulation, it's normal to possess fluid accumulated within the ovary and type a cyst. This cyst forms a simple cyst, or supposed physiological cysts. once this cyst expands, some women might experience some pressure or pain within the pelvic space, whereas most women don't feel the cyst in the least. Such cysts might solely be discovered incidentally throughout a routine gynecological check-up or ultrasound scan. they're harmless and can get away by themselves as the fluid is absorbed into the body.

On the other hand, some cysts don't resolve spontaneously. These are advanced cysts, conjointly known as pathological cysts. Surgery would be required to get rid of the cyst.

Complex (pathological) cysts don't get away by themselves and will cause complications.

  • At an unpredictable purpose in time, the cyst might rupture, causes internal haemorrhage or infection. they'll result in severe abdominal pain.
  • Occasionally, the cyst causes the ovary to twist, cutting the blood flow to the ovary and inflicting severe pain – the situation of female internal reproductive organ torsion. Emergency surgery are going to be required to straighten out the ovary and take away the cyst. If the blood flow has stopped for too long, the ovary might not be saved. during this case, the entire ovary can have to be compelled to be removed.

When pathological cysts are diagnosed, it'd be higher to get rid of them in a very well-prepared elective surgery by your gynecologist, instead of treating the cysts with an emergency surgery once acute complications occur.

Besides, though female internal reproductive organ cancer is uncommon, removal of the cysts for pathology diagnosis is a crucial step to rule out cancer.


Minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques are often wont to take away complicated cysts (laparoscopic cystectomy). The health of the ovary will be preserved. The cyst are going to be sent to pathology to verify absence of cancer.

Compared to traditional open surgery, minimally invasive technique surgery carries benefits of less pain, minimised scarring, reduced infection, a faster recovery and earlier come back to normal activities.
