Ovarian cysts management

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs which develop on a woman’s ovary. They are a relatively common occurrence in pre-menopausal women and can be detected during a routine gynaecological examination. A large majority of ovarian cysts are harmless and will naturally disappear without presenting any symptoms.

However, an ovarian cyst may become persistent, symptomatic or malignant, causing pain and discomfort over time. In these cases, the cysts can be removed via an abdominal surgery or laparoscopy. Depending on the size and type of the cyst, only a removal of the cyst is required. However, removal of the entire ovary may be necessary in certain situations.
