Ovarian Cysts in NYC
A cyst is a sac or pocket that has filled with fluid, solid matter or a mixture of both. A cyst can appear almost anywhere in your body. When a cyst appears on one of your two almond-sized ovaries, it's called an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts usually form during the ovulation part of your cycle, when ova are released from your ovaries. Most women experience cysts at some point in their lives without knowing it.
Cystic SymptomsCysts usually present with few or no symptoms, and they don't usually cause any harm. Cysts disappear on their own, typically within a few months, leading to most gynecologists taking a "wait and see" approach. However, the symptoms of a ruptured cyst include a sudden, intense pain. Significant and intense pain can also signal that a cyst is causing the ovary to twist, called an ovarian torsion, and can be a surgical emergency. Concerning symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan as it may be a symptom or sign of a serious illness or condition.
Because an ovarian cyst can rupture if its growth isn't monitored, you should note the telltale signs that can accompany a cyst:
- A feeling of pressure, bloating, swelling, or pain (sharp or dull) in your lower abdomen that comes and goes
- Pelvic pain
- Lower back pain
- Difficulty emptying your bladder
- Pain during sex
- Unexplained weight gain
- Atypical pain during your period
- Vaginal bleeding that is in some way not typical for you
- Breast tenderness
- Feeling the need to urinate more frequently
If you've already been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and you experience any of the following symptoms, please seek medical help immediately:
- Pain accompanied by fever and vomiting
- A sudden, severe pain in your abdomen
- Feeling faint or dizzy
- Shortness of breath or rapid breathing
