Ovarian cysts are small fluid-filled sacs within or on the surface of an ovary which may appear in most women. As they are painless and do not have any significant symptoms, ovarian cysts are normally detected during a routine pelvic examination.
In cases where the cyst grows in size and symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain and bloating, painful bowel movements or pain during sex appear, it is necessary to consult your doctor for further examination. Severe symptoms of an ovarian cyst such as sharp pelvic pain, fever or dizziness require immediate treatment.
In some cases surgery may be recommended by your doctor for removing the cyst.
