Ovarian Cyst occurs when fluid accumulates in the thin membranes of an ovary which looks like small sacks or pockets. It is different from abscess which is filled with pus. However, cysts are filled with harmless fluid. Cyst can appear at any age but mostly occurs during reproductive years. Sometimes, it doesn’t show any symptom or problem but it can cause serious medical issues in later stages.
- Follicular Cyst: Egg formation takes place in follicle which contains fluid to protect the growing eggs. It releases the egg into fallopian tube. Formation of the cyst begins when the follicle does not rupture or release its egg.
- Corpus Luteum Cyst: It occurs when follicle gets filled with estrogen and progesterone hormone or blood after egg is released.
- Dermoid Cyst (Cystic Teratomas): This cyst is formed from the cells which make eggs and requires surgery to get removed.
- Cystadenomas: It is filled with watery or thick-mucus substance.
- Endometriomas: It is a condition in which uterine endometrial cells grow outside the uterus.
