What Are Ovarian Cysts

An ovarian cyst is a sac filled with fluid and can remain dormant within the female body for several years, this happens especially in younger women. Occasional may require treatment due to ovarian functions and changes such as a hemorrhagic cyst, ovarian carcinoma, ovarian malignancy or ruptured ovarian cyst, but to determine whether the ovarian cysts are you will need an ultrasound.

Generally, if we find ovarian cysts over 5cm in diameter when you are heading towards menopause complications may occur from this, having an ultrasound to find ovarian cysts can determine if you have one, what type of cyst it is and how many you have.

Sometimes during an ovarian ultrasound scan, we will find benign cystic teratomas or unilocular ovarian cystic tumors, should this happen we will inform you and pull together a detailed report of the scan.

What Can Cause Ovarian Cysts?

Ovarian cysts happen due to a follicle inside your female reproductive system not releasing an egg during ovulation, instead, it simply fills with fluid inside the ovary, if this happens, the term used to describe this is a “follicular cyst” In some other cases, the follicle will release the egg, but the sac closes up and swell with fluid or blood instead of dissolving, this is known as a “corpus luteum cyst”.

These ovarian cysts are functional, being the most common type in women who have a menstrual cycle. Still, they can happen in both premenopausal women and postmenopausal women. Some women may find they have symptomatic cysts that cause pelvic pain or bleeding, whether as most functional cyst types are asymptomatic.
