Definition description
Definition/description

  • Ovarian cysts are small fluid filled sacs that develop in a woman’s ovaries.

  • Ovarian cysts may occur at any age, on either ovaries or both.

  • The most common type of ovarian cyst is called a functional cyst, which often forms during the period.


Cont.

  • Each month, a woman’s ovaries grow tiny cysts that hold the eggs. When an egg is mature, the sac breaks open to release the egg, so it can travel through the fallopian tube for fertilization. Then the sac dissolves.



Types of cysts
Types of cysts

  • In one type of functional cyst, called a follicular cyst the sac doesn’t break open to release the egg and may continue to grow. This type of cyst usually disappears within one to three months.


Cont.

  • A corpus luteum cyst, another type of functional cyst, forms if the sac doesn’t dissolve. Instead, the sac seals off after the egg is released. Fluid then builds up inside of it. This type of cyst usually goes away on its own after a few weeks. However, it can grow to almost four inches and may bleed or twist the ovary and cause pain

  • How do you prevent ovarian cysts?
