Ovarian cysts are not uncommon, and often pose no obvious threat and disappear on their own. But a cyst may also inspire abdominal discomfort, bladder dysfunction or additional internal damage when they grow too large or rupture. Some may even be cancerous.
If you suffer any of these symptoms, you should consult your healthcare provider to determine the existence of a cyst, as well as its size, shape and potential threat. As part of our gynecology services, various tests, imaging or laparoscopic procedures may be used to reach a confirmation and appropriate diagnosis. The risks associated with the cyst may warrant a period of waiting, the prescription of certain medications or even a hysterectomy procedure if the cyst proves cancerous or particularly intrusive.
