Why do you have all these symptoms in ovarian cysts?

During a woman’s menstrual cycle, an egg grows in a sac called as a follicle, which is located inside the ovaries. In most cases, this follicle or sac breaks open and releases an egg. But if the follicle doesn’t break open, the fluid inside the follicle can form a cyst in the ovary.

Most ovarian cysts are benign and naturally go away on their own without treatment. But in a rare case, your doctor may detect a cancerous ovarian cystic mass during a routine examination.

Ovarian torsion is another rare complication of ovarian cysts. This is when a large cyst causes an ovary to twist or move from its original position. Blood supply to the ovary is cut off, and if not treated, it can cause damage to the ovarian tissue and loss of ovarian function.

Ruptured ovarian cysts, which are also rare, can cause intense pain and internal bleeding and life threatening complications.

Complications of ovarian cysts:

  • Ovarian torsion
  • Ovarian cyst rupture causing life threatening complications
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Need for emergency surgery
