Ovarian cyst refers to the solid or fluid-filled pockets in or on your ovary. It is common among women especially for those who still get their period. In most cases ovarian cyst is painless and harmless. And it may disappear without treatments. But when it develops into a complex one, the proper medical treatments are needed. The common causes of the disease:
  • Pregnancy.
  • Serious pelvic infection.
  • Endometriosis.
  • Hormonal problems.
  • Functional cysts.
The treatments for the disease:
  • Surgery: the first choice for complex ovarian cysts larger than 5 cm.
  • Taking pain relievers including opioids, acetaminophen, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (for mild ovarian cyst).
  • Hormonal birth control.
