About Ovarian Cyst Treatment

Ovarian cysts can be treated in multiple ways depending on their size, type, and severity. If the ovarian cyst is simple, that is, a follicular cyst which is lesser than 4 cm, it can be treated through birth control medications and lifestyle changes. These medications help stop ovulation and provide rest to the ovaries, which in turn, manages the condition.

However, if the ovarian cyst is larger or pathological, that is, it is a dermoid cyst, endometriomas, cystadenomas, or hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, cystectomy surgery is suggested. Currently, laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical option to remove an ovarian cyst. It provides minimal blood loss, negligible scarring, and quick recovery.

Treatment

Diagnosis

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.

Treatment

An ovarian cyst can be treated in several ways such as with lifestyle changes, medications, and surgery. However, which method of treatment is particularly best for you, depends on several factors such as the type, size, numbers, and severity of the ovarian cysts.

Laparoscopic surgery is the safest and most advanced way of removing ovarian cysts in India. 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

Are ovarian cysts common in women?

Yes, tiny sized functional cysts are common in women of reproductive years and develop due to ovulation. In most cases, they are benign and form no major symptoms. But if you are experiencing irregular periods, intense pelvic pain, regular bloating, unexpected weight loss, or pain with fever and vomiting, chances are you have unusually large ovarian cysts that may require surgical removal. Therefore, we suggest you seek immediate medical help.

What size of ovarian cyst requires immediate surgery?

Symptomatic ovarian cysts that are 5 cm or larger in diameter are considered dangerous to a woman’s health and reproductive fertility. In addition, such large ovarian cysts can be complicated by rupture, haemorrhage, and torsion and are considered gynaecological emergencies.

Therefore, they are usually suggested to be removed surgically.

What are the treatment options for enlarged ovarian cysts?

The approach to the treatment for ovarian cyst or cysts depends primarily on your symptoms, age, size and type of ovarian cyst. Your medical history and desire for further childbearing also shape the final options. Depending on these factors, your doctor may either treat you conservatively or suggest surgery.

What should I do to prepare for the procedure?

Top three things to ensure before your surgical procedure are-

  • Abstain from smoking, substance abuse or alcohol consumption for at least 48 hours before surgery
  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before your surgery
  • Review your existing medications from your doctor and instructions on stopping or continuing them before the procedure
What can I expect after the ovarian cyst removal surgery?

Typically, it is normal for your navel area and abdomen to feel a little sore and bruised after the surgery. In addition, your shoulders and back may hurt from the gas placed in your abdomen during the procedure. You may also experience some vaginal discharge or spotting after surgery.

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

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