What are 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.

Treatment

Diagnosis

Ovarian cysts are common and they normally go away without any necessary treatment. However, sometimes they do not go away or become enlarged. There are many non-surgery risks so the doctor may suggest possible tests to determine the size, placement, and type of cysts to prepare a treatment plan accordingly. The tests may include-

  • Physical exam
  • Review of medications
  • Blood tests
  • Urine test
  • CT scan —is a medical imaging technique and a type of X-ray used in radiology to capture detailed images of the organs inside our body noninvasively for diagnostic purposes.
  • Ultrasound — is a diagnostic test that uses sound waves to create an image of internal organs.

It is necessary to remove the ovarian cyst or cysts if-

  • the cyst is cancerous
  • large cysts—more than 2.5 inches (6.35 centimeters) in diameter
  • solid cysts (rather than those that are filled with fluid)
  • cysts causing severe pain

Surgery

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.

During laparoscopic surgery, general anesthesia is administered to the patient. The surgeon will then fill your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas to move the abdominal wall away from the organs to increase visibility. Once the abdomen is inflated, the laparoscope is inserted through a small incision which is made near the belly button. Next, two to three additional key-hole-sized incisions are made on either side of the lower abdomen.

A lighted camera on the end of the laparoscope transmits a live video feed to a screen for the surgeon to perform the procedure. First, the doctor will examine the cyst and ovary more closely and then remove the cyst using surgical tools that pass through the incisions. During a cystectomy, the surgeon works carefully not to damage the ovary or fallopian tubes and preserve the patient’s fertility. Sometimes the cyst can also rupture during the surgery.

Once the cyst has been removed, the surgeon will close the incisions with stitches. Often women who have had a laparoscopic cystectomy can go home the same day of their surgery. Recovery time does vary according to your condition, but most women return to work and resume light activity within 1-2 weeks of the surgery.
