About Ovarian Cyst

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.

Treatment

Gynecologist explaining about ovarian cysts to a female patient

Diagnosis

The doctor physically examines the patient to check for any fluid filled pockets or cysts in the ovaries. If the doctor feels some abnormalities then further diagnostic tests for ovarian cyst are carried out.

Ultrasound- It is the most common diagnosis to confirm ovarian cysts. It makes the use of sound waves to clearly visualize the uterus and get the measurement of the cysts.

Blood tests- If you face the issue of abnormal period blood flow, the doctor usually orders lab tests related to blood to check the blood count. In most cases of ovarian cysts, the female is anemic due to excess blood loss during periods.

Review of medications- The doctor reviews the medication you have had previously or are having for ovarian cystsCT Scan- It is an advanced type of X-ray that uses computers and machines to get a detailed image of the pelvic organs.

Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy- Laparoscopic surgery is a safe and advanced way of removing cysts in the ovaries. 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 anesthesia to ensure no pain or discomfort to the patient. The surgeon inserts a thin tube with a camera on its end (laparoscope) into the abdomen by making a small incision near the navel. The other 1-2 minor incisions are made on the abdomen. Further, the surgeon makes more space between the internal organs and the abdomen. This allows the surgeon to precisely remove the cysts from the ovaries without causing injury to any other organ in the lower abdomen.

How do gynecologists in Lucknow treat ovarian cysts?

Not all ovarian cysts demand medical or surgical treatment, and in many cases, ovarian cysts go away on their own without treatment. Because of this, your gynecologist may suggest a period of watchful waiting in order to monitor your ovarian cyst and see if it goes away after 1 or 2 menstrual cycles. But usually, treatment for ovarian cyst depends on the symptoms, type of ovarian cyst and its size.

Treatment options for ovarian cysts include-

Watchful waiting- If your ultrasound shows small, simple, fluid- filled ovarian cysts and you have no symptoms, your gynecologist will wait and monitor the ovarian cysts as they may go away on their own. Your gynecologist will also recommend that you get follow-up with a pelvic ultrasound at some intervals to see if the ovarian cyst changes in size. In such a case, you will be re-examined in a few months to confirm if the cyst or cysts have gone.

Medication- If you have functional ovarian cysts, your gynecologist may prescribe hormonal contraceptives for you. While medications can help in preventing new functional cysts from forming, they will not help in shrinking an existing ovarian cyst.

Surgery- If you experience severe pain and discomfort due to ovarian cysts, your gynecologist medications to help with pain relief. But if medications and other nonsurgical treatments are not much effective, an ovarian cyst removal surgery might be required. Our gynecologists in Lucknow usually recommend minimally invasive methods like laparoscopy for ovarian cyst removal. However, more invasive conventional surgery might be necessary if the cyst is very large in size or if the doctor suspects cancer.

To know the most suitable treatment for your ovarian cysts, meet our expert gynecologists and find relief from pelvic pain and other uncomfortable symptoms.

Do I need surgery for ovarian cysts?

The most suitable treatment option for ovarian cysts for your case will depend on several factors, including your age, whether or not you are having regular periods, the size of the ovarian cyst, its appearance (in the ultrasound), and associated symptoms.

You might need surgery for an ovarian cyst if the cyst-

  • Does not go away after a few menstrual cycles.
  • Is large in size (>5 to 10 cm) or continues to grow
  • Causes severe pain and persistent pelvic pressure
  • May rupture or twist
  • Appears to be caused by endometriosis in the ultrasound.
  • Appears suspicious of cancer.

In addition, if you are past menopause and have an ovarian cyst, your gynecologist will probably suggest you have surgery to remove the ovarian cyst. Though ovarian cancer is rare, females of- 50 to 70 years of age are at higher risk. Females who are diagnosed with cancer at an early stage have a better outcome and prognosis than females who are diagnosed at advanced stages of cancer.

Will ovarian cyst surgery affect fertility?

For young females (who are in their reproductive age) and have not been through the menopause, the surgeon will try to preserve as much of the reproductive system as they can.

Depending on the severity and complexities of the condition, it is often possible to just remove the ovarian cyst and leave both ovaries intact. This will not affect the female’s fertility in any way.

If one of the ovaries are to be removed during ovarian cyst surgery, the remaining ovary will still be functional and will normally release hormones and eggs. The female’s fertility should not be affected, though she may find it slightly difficult to get pregnant. Occasionally, it may be necessary to remove both the ovaries, even if the female has not been through menopause. This will trigger an early menopause, which means that the female can no longer produce any eggs or become pregnant.

However, it may still be possible to get pregnant with fertility options. If needed, discuss this with our fertility specialists who specialise in assisted reproduction techniques. You should discuss your fertility concerns with your gynecologist before your surgery.

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.

Possible risks of ovarian cyst removal surgery

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.

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 StaySince 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 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.
  • Hormone Replacement TherapyIf your ovary or ovaries are removed during the surgery due to complications, your doctor may start hormone replacement therapy.
  • Sexual IntercourseDon’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.
