we believe in empowering our patients with knowledge of advancements in medical care and health problems including ovarian cysts. Ovarian cysts are usually detected during a routine pelvic examination and confirmed through an ultrasound scan. When ovarian cysts enlarge, you might experience symptoms like bloating and severe pelvic pain. Some women may have abnormal menstruation and even infertility.
Our ovarian cyst gynae will formulate an appropriate treatment plan taking into consideration your age, size and nature of the cyst, desire for fertility along with the severity of the symptoms. Conservative management with repeat ultrasound scans a few months later is appropriate if the cyst is small, asymptomatic, appears to be benign on ultrasound scan and the ovarian cancer markers are not significantly raised.
However, if the cyst is causing unbearable pain and is affecting your daily activities, medication or surgery may be recommended.
