Ovarian Cysts Q & A

How are Ovarian Cysts Treated?

Ovarian cysts are normally left to dissipate on their own unless continue to grow or put pressure on the ovary and surrounding organs. Repeated ovarian cysts in the same location can eventually cause a build up of scar tissue that may damage the ovary and prevent it from functioning normally. When this occurs, doctors may choose to go in and remove the ovary, or at least the portion that is damaged. This procedure is known as laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy. If a woman has one ovary removed, she still has the capability of producing an egg each month for ovulation and can still become pregnant.
