What is an Ovarian Cyst?
According to mayoclinic.org, ovarian cysts are sacs, usually filled with fluid, in an ovary or on its surface. Females have two ovaries. One ovary is located on each side of the uterus.
Ovarian cysts are common. Most of the time, you have little or no discomfort, and the cysts are harmless. Most cysts go away without treatment within a few months.
But sometimes ovarian cysts can become twisted or burst open (rupture). This can cause serious symptoms.
To protect your health, the clinic advises getting regular pelvic exams and knowing the symptoms that can signal what might be a serious problem.
