About Ovarian Cysts

Ovarian cysts are the fluid-filled pockets or sac-like structures inside or on the walls of the ovaries. Ovaries are the almond-shaped structures on each side of the uterus that are responsible for the development and maturation of the eggs. So, when cysts form in the ovaries, it impairs their functioning.

Ovarian cysts are commonly occurring and can have an impact of varying degrees on different females. In some cases, ovarian cysts may disappear in a few months, whereas mostly it requires proper medical care and attention.

Ovarian cysts can cause severe symptoms when they rupture or burst in the ovaries. Therefore, once diagnosed with ovarian cysts, a female should seek treatment as soon as possible.

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.

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.

Ovarian Cyst Risk Factors

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.

  • After-effects of anesthesiaYou may feel sleepy for the first 24 hours after your surgery.
  • Stitches & DressingThe 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.
  • ScarsIn the case of laparoscopic surgery, you may have one to four small keyhole scars on your stomach.
  • Washing & ShoweringYou 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 & DiscomfortYou 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 VaginaYou 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 & DrinkingOnce 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.
