About Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are the solid or fluid-filled sacs that may develop inside or on the surface of the ovaries.
Though most ovarian cysts are harmless and disappear naturally without any treatment, large ovarian cysts can affect fertility and cause a dull or sharp ache in the abdomen and pain during certain activities. Larger cysts may also cause constant bloating, painful bowel movements, intense fever, nausea, ovarian torsions or even increased chances of ovarian cancer. Ruptured cysts are another rare but life-threatening complication. They can cause severe pain and internal bleeding. Therefore, once diagnosed with ovarian cysts, we suggest immediate medical intervention.

An abnormal swelling in your lower abdomen and symptoms of sharp pain, fullness or bloating may suggest an ovarian cyst. If the doctor senses this swelling in your routine pelvic exam, they may recommend you the following tests to determine its type and help plan treatment-

  • Pelvic Ultrasound- This imaging test allows your gynaecologist to get an accurate digital image of your ovaries and cyst. This image helps the doctor confirm the cyst’s presence, shape, size, composition and location.
  • Hormone Level Tests- To screen hormone-related problems.
  • Blood Tests- A blood test helps detect the nature of the cyst or cysts.
  • CA 125 Blood Test- In a rarer circumstance, if your doctor suspects ovarian cancer, CA 125 blood test may be suggested.


Some of the medical options for the treatment of ovarian cysts could be medicines, laparoscopic surgery, hysterectomy, or oophorectomy. The approach to the treatment for ovarian cysts or cysts depends primarily on your patient’s symptoms, age, size and type of the cyst. Another important factor is your medical history and the desire for further childbearing. Depending on these factors, your doctor help plans your best option.

Laparoscopic surgery is the safest and most advanced way of removing ovarian cysts. This is also referred to as keyhole surgery that is minimally invasive in nature and requires only a few minor incisions on the abdomen.

Before the procedure, the patient is administered general anaesthesia to ensure no pain or discomfort. Then, through a small, keyhole incision near the lower abdomen, the doctor inserts a thin tube with a camera on its end (laparoscope). Now, with specialised tools and a very precise understanding of your cysts, the doctor safely removes only the cyst while preserving your ovaries and their fertility.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Ovarian Cyst Treatment Necessary?

Yes. Symptomatic ovarian cysts interfere with the normal functioning of the ovaries and directly affect fertility along with menstrual complications. As a result, you may experience symptoms like irregular periods, pelvic pain, fuller abdomen, unexpected weight loss, or pain with fever and vomiting. In rarer cases, they can also turn into extreme gynaecological complications including, ovarian torsion, ruptured cysts, intense pain, internal bleeding, and an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Therefore, once detected with enlarged or multiple ovarian cysts, we suggest immediate medical help.

Who requires ovarian cyst surgery?

Large or persistent ovarian cysts that are 5 cm or larger are typically considered dangerous and recommended to be removed surgically. Surgery is also recommended if there are concerns that the cyst could be cancerous or become cancerous shortly.

Does surgery for an ovarian cyst mean the removal of the whole ovary?

No. The ovaries are an essential part of a women’s reproductive system and produce important hormones before menopause. Therefore in most cases, only the cyst is removed, preserving the ovary. However, in some extreme gynaecological complications, for example, if the cyst is so large that it has replaced the whole ovary, or the cyst has twisted so much that the blood supply has been completely cut off, one or both the ovaries may have to be surgically removed. The same is also suggested if the doctor suspects ovarian cancer.

How long does the Laparoscopic Ovarian Cyst removal surgery take?

The average time to complete a laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal surgery is 1- 2 hours.

How long does it take to recover after ovarian cyst surgery?

Your recovery period depends on the kind of surgery you have opted for -, whether conventional or laparoscopic. Laparoscopic cystectomy (keyhole) is more precise, minimally invasive, and ensures reduced blood loss. This is why the patient recovers faster (within a week- 10 days) and records little to no discomfort.

Which doctor to consult for ovarian cyst surgery in Guwahati?

Pristyn Care is associated with some of the best and most experienced gynaecologists in Guwahati who are trained in treating a variety of gynecological issues, including ovarian cysts.

How much do I have to spend for ovarian cyst surgery in Guwahati?

The average cost for a non-cancerous cyst removal depends upon a number of factors, including the gynaecologist you choose, the hospital you opt, the technique of surgery, room charges and other medical expenses at the hospital. However, an estimated cost of laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy in Guwahati may range from 40,000 INR to 50,000 INR.

Does insurance cover ovarian cyst removal surgery?

Yes, most of the insurance providers in India cover ovarian cyst removal surgery. However, to be sure of the nature and extent of your claim, please contact us directly, and our experts will help you understand the exact specificities of your insurance cover.

What happens if ovarian cysts are left untreated?

If left untreated for an extended period, some cysts can decrease fertility and lead to infertility eventually. This is especially common with endometriomas and polycystic ovary syndrome. In such a case, the doctor removes or shrinks the cyst to improve fertility.

What is the normal size of an ovarian cyst?

Ovarian cysts 2 inches in diameter or less are considered normal, and usually, they don’t need surgical treatment. Ovarian cysts larger than 4 centimeters in diameter are considered dangerous. In such a case, timely and proper surgical treatment is critical as it leads to other serious medical complications.

Is ovarian cyst removal surgery a major procedure?

Yes, ovarian cyst removal surgery is a major procedure. Therefore, you may need to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days after the procedure. To know more about the same, you can book an appointment and consult privately online/offline with our female gynecologist.

Can I get pregnant with an ovarian cyst?

The chances of getting pregnant with an ovarian cyst are 50-50 as it depends on many factors such as the type, size, numbers, and severity of the cyst.

Can an ovarian cyst affect my fertility?

Yes, if ignored or left untreated for an extended period, an ovarian cyst can potentially affect your fertility and makes it hard for you to conceive.

What are the risks of a ovarian cystectomy?

Like any other surgery, ovarian cyst removal surgery also has certain possible risks such as:-

  • Scar tissue (adhesions) may form at the surgical site, ovaries, fallopian tubes, or pelvis.
  • Infection
  • Damage to the bowel or bladder
  • The pain post-procedure may not be controlled.
  • Ovarian cysts may return after surgery.

Is Ovarian Cyst Treatment Necessary?

Yes, symptomatic ovarian cysts interfere with the normal functioning of the ovaries and directly affect a woman’s fertility along with menstrual complications. As a result, the woman may feel excessive pressure and swell around her lower abdomen, intense fever, back pain, bloating, pain during intercourse, and an abnormal increase in the urgency and frequency of urination.

This is why, in most cases of enlarged or multiple ovarian cysts, medications and lifestyle changes are not enough. In fact, when a cyst is 5cm or larger, surgery becomes almost inevitable. Untreated large ovarian cysts can also result in ovarian torsion. It is a complicated gynaecological condition in which the cyst can rotate the ovary around the supporting ligaments. This results in the restriction of blood supply to the ovaries and may result in eventual tissue death. Though rare, prolonged ovarian cysts also heighten the risk of ovarian cancer. Therefore, once detected with ovarian cysts, immediate medical help is advised.

PCOS and Ovarian Cysts

PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome. As the name suggests, one may think it is the medical condition of having multiple ovarian cysts in your ovaries and hence the same as ovarian cysts. But not quite. Ovarian cysts (tiny fluid-filled sacs on ovaries) are only one of the many symptoms of PCOS, not the cause.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition marked by many small pearl-sized cysts on your ovaries, irregular periods and abnormally high levels of androgens hormones.

Typically, androgen hormones are the hormones that cause male characteristics. Though the female reproductive system naturally produces them in small amounts, it marks a dominating balance of estrogen to androgen. But, when the androgen level rises, it produces an abnormality. It throws off typical ovulation rhythms and marks the beginning of unpleasant physical symptoms. Since women with polycystic ovarian syndrome do not make all of the hormones needed for the eggs to fully mature, the follicles grow and build up fluid, but the eggs do not get released. Since ovulation does not occur, the follicles remain dormant. This directly leads to decreased fertility, and medical intervention becomes necessary.

How to prepare for ovarian cyst removal surgery

In most cases, ovarian cyst removal surgery is an elective surgery that’s scheduled through your doctor’s office in advance. You should expect to take a few days off from the work for this procedure and the recovery period after completing the process.

You need to keep in mind the following points when preparing to undergo ovarian cyst removal surgery.

  • You may be asked to stop taking certain medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), clopidogrel (Plavix), warfarin (Coumadin), and other blood thinners.
  • Ask your doctor which drugs you should take on the day of the surgery.
  • Take the medicine your doctor has told you to take with a small sip of water.
  • Inform your doctor if you have a bleeding disorder or any medical conditions.
  • You will have blood samples taken if you need a blood transfusion post-procedure. However, it depends on the surgical procedure used to remove the cysts.
  • Stop smoking and drinking alcohol as they may lead to certain complications.
  • After midnight or the night before your surgery, you will be asked not to eat or drink anything.
  • Your doctor or hospital staff will inform you when to reach the hospital on the day of your surgery.

What to expect after the ovarian cyst removal surgery

After undergoing ovarian cyst removal surgery, you may experience a little pain and discomfort in your stomach that goes away in the next few days. The time for recovery after ovarian cyst removal surgery varies from case to case.

The following are the things you can expect after undergoing ovarian cyst removal surgery:-

  • Hospital Stay: Since ovarian cyst removal surgery is a major procedure, you may need to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. The doctor will monitor your blood pressure, urine output, etc., to ensure that everything is normal.
  • After-effects of anesthesia: You may feel sleepy for the first 24 hours after your surgery.
  • Stitches & Dressing: The surgeon closes the incisions with stitches or staplers. Glue and dissolvable stitches dissolve by themselves, and other stitches may be removed within five to seven days of the surgery.
  • Scars: In the case of laparoscopic surgery, you may have one to four small keyhole scars on your stomach.
  • Washing & Showering: You can take a bath and shower after the removal of the dressing. Pat the scar and dry it after taking a bath with clean disposable tissues or dry it in the air. Make sure that you keep the wounds clean and dry for fast healing.
  • Pain & Discomfort: You may experience mild pain and discomfort in your lower tummy for the first few days after surgery. Your doctor will prescribe you certain painkillers such as codeine or dihydrocodeine to manage the pain.
  • Mild Bleeding From Vagina: You may experience slight bleeding from the vagina for the first 1-2 days after the surgery. However, consult your doctor immediately in case of heavy bleeding or unexpected symptoms.
  • Eating & Drinking: Once you are awake after completion of the surgery, you can start taking sips of drinking water or a cup of tea and something light to eat before going home.
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy: If your ovary or ovaries are removed during the surgery due to complications, your doctor may start hormone replacement therapy.
  • Sexual Intercourse: Don’t resume sexual intercourse until your doctor gives the final clearance. Complete recovery with internal healing takes around 4-6 weeks. Wait until your incisions are fully healed that takes approximately 3-5 days to several weeks.

Apart from all the above, you must avoid strenuous activities including exercise for about a week. You can expect to resume your office work 2-4 weeks after the surgery.
