Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sac that forms on or inside the ovary. Ovarian cysts are very common and may develop at any age, but they most commonly develop during a woman’s reproductive years.

There are various types of ovarian cysts that, including:
- Follicular cysts: These ovarian cysts are the most common type and develop when a follicle sac fails to release an egg and instead grows and fills with fluid.
- Corpus luteum cysts: These cysts form from the corpus luteum, a temporary structure that develops in the ovary after an egg is released. If the corpus luteum doesn’t dissolve as it should, it can fill with fluid and form a cyst.
- Dermoid cysts: These cysts are sac-like growths that can contain hair, fat, and other types of tissue. They can develop on the ovaries and are typically benign.
- Endometriomas: These cysts are also known as chocolate cysts and can form when endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus, and these cells attach to the ovaries.
- Cystadenomas: These cysts develop on the ovaries’ outer surface and are filled with fluid or mucus.
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): In this condition, many small globular cysts develop on the ovaries and can cause the ovaries to enlarge. PCOS can cause fertility issues if left untreated.
Recognizing the Signs of Ovarian Cysts: Symptoms to look for

What causes the Development of Ovarian Cysts?
The exact cause of ovarian cysts is often unknown, but several other factors include
- Hormonal imbalances
- Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
- Previous ovarian cysts
Detecting Ovarian Cysts: The diagnosis Process
Dr. Kade may detect an ovarian cyst during a routine pelvic exam by simply noticing swelling in the abdomen(probably due to swelling in ovaries), and further ordering other tests to confirm the presence of a cyst.
- Ultrasound: An ultrasound creates images of the ovaries using ultrasound, allowing doctors to see if any cysts are present.
- Blood tests: Blood tests may be ordered to measure certain hormones, such as CA-125, which can be elevated in some women with ovarian cysts.
- Laparoscopy: In some cases, a laparoscopy is needed to look closer at the cyst formation and determine its size, location, and composition.
- MRI or CT scan: These imaging tests may be used in more complex cases or to evaluate the cyst’s impact on surrounding organs.
Finding relief: Treatment options for ovarian cysts
Treatment for ovarian cysts depends on their size, type, and whether they are causing any symptoms.
In some cases, the doctor suggests cyst monitoring and waiting for changes. Pain medication, including painkillers and birth control pills, may be prescribed to manage any discomfort and other symptoms.
However, if the cyst is large, causing symptoms, or doesn’t go away on its own, surgery may be necessary. Surgery may also be recommended for those who are approaching menopause, as cysts are more likely to be cancerous in this age group.
The two main types of surgical procedures for ovarian cysts are laparoscopy and laparotomy. Laparoscopy: It is a MISS minimally invasive procedure that uses a telescopic camera to look into the pelvis with small incisions and do precise surgery through a keyhole and remove the cyst.
Laparotomy: Another method is laparotomy. It is more invasive than laparoscopy and involves making a larger incision/s in the abdomen. It is typically reserved for cysts that may be cancerous.
