An ovarian cyst is a sac filled with liquid or semiliquid material that arises in an ovary.  While the discovery of an ovarian cyst causes considerable anxiety in women owing to fears of malignancy, the vast majority of these lesions are benign.  Most patients with ovarian cysts are asymptomatic, with the cysts being discovered incidentally during ultrasonography or routine pelvic examination. Some cysts, however, may be associated with a range of symptoms, sometimes severe. Many patients with simple ovarian cysts found through ultrasonographic examination do not necessitate treatment.

These cysts can progress in females at any stage of life, from the neonatal period to post menopause. Most ovarian cysts, nonetheless, arise during infancy and adolescence, which are hormonally active periods of development. Most are functional in nature and resolve without treatment. However, ovarian cysts can herald an underlying malignant process or,  probably, distract the clinician from a more  unsafe  condition,  for example, appendicitis, ovarian torsion, or  ectopic pregnancy. (Conversely, there  could  be an inverse association  between  breast cancer  and  ovarian cysts).   Once ovarian cysts  are large, painful, persistent  or have concerning radiographic or exam findings, surgery may be required, from time to time resulting in removal of the ovary

Most patients with ovarian cysts are asymptomatic, with the cysts being discovered incidentally during ultrasonography or routine pelvic examination. Some cysts, however, may be associated with a range of symptoms, sometimes severe, while malignant ovarian cysts frequently do not cause symptoms until they reach an advanced stage.

Some of the symptoms associated with ovarian cysts include

  • lower abdominal pain or pelvic pain
  • painful periods, or a change in the pattern of your periods
  • pain during sex
  • pain related to your bowels
  • a feeling that you want to pass urine urgently and more frequently
  • a change in appetite or feeling full quickly
  • a distended (swollen) abdomen
  • Difficulty in becoming pregnant which may be linked to endometriosis. Patients may experience discomfort with intercourse, particularly deep penetration
  • Having bowel movements may be difficult, or pressure may develop, leading to a desire to defecate
  • Some patients may experience tenesmus
  • Patients may experience abdominal fullness and bloating
  • Young children may present with precocious puberty and early onset of menarche
  • Patients may experience indigestion, heartburn, or early satiety
  • Micturition maMicturition may occur frequently, due to pressure on the bladder
  • Polycystic ovaries may be part of the polycystic ovarian syndrome, which includes hirsutism, infertility, oligomenorrhea, obesity, and acne
  • Irregularity of the menstrual cycle and abnormal vaginal bleeding may occur; the inter-menstrual interval may be prolonged, followed by menorrhagia
  • Endometriomas are associated with endometriosis, which may cause dysmenorrhea or dyspareunia

Treatment options include ‘watching and waiting’ or an operation to remove the cyst if it is getting bigger or is complex. Your choice depends on your symptoms, the appearance and the size, and the results of any blood tests though the two major options offered in orthodox medicine include

         i.            Taking the combined oral contraceptive pill which will not help a simple cyst disappear although taking the pill may stop further cysts developing in the future

       ii.            Removing fluid from a simple cyst (aspiration) is of little benefit as the cyst is likely to fill up again, although it may be done to help to determine what type of cyst it is.

-A laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, which is less painful afterwards or a laparotomy (open surgery) may be recommended if the cyst is very large or, rarely, if there is a suspicion of cancer, where the ovaries are unlikely to be removed
