The THREATS Of A Painful Ovarian Cyst

Jul 15, 2008
An ovarian cyst is a small enclosed space within the ovary containing fluids within a thin boundary. A follicle that is over 2cm bigger than the usual size is classified as an ovarian cyst. Most ovarian cysts are benign or simply functional. However, if they are the hemorrhagic type they can become ovarian cysts that are very painful. Other names for a hemorrhagic cyst are blood cyst; haematocyst; and haemotocele. Such a cyst occurs when a blood vessel in the system breaks and blood enters into the system. Experiencing pain to the right of the abdomen is a classic sign of a hemorrhagic cyst. Bleeding can be rapid and extensive and cover the whole ovary in a short time to produce considerable pain. The blood in the ovary can then start to form clots that can be seen typically on a sonogram. Sometimes, a hemorrhagic cyst bursts and releases blood to flood the abdominal cavity.

It is infrequent however for blood to be evacuated via the vagina. It is when the cyst breaks that the pain becomes intolerable. Luckily, these occurrences are self-limiting and do not typically require surgical action. Even if the cyst ruptures, correct health can be restored if the patient rests appropriately. Tetracycline has been indicated as an effective medicament in treating hemorrhagic cysts although a doctor?s authorization should always be sought. When torsion occurs, another kind of painful ovarian cyst is experienced. Ovarian torsion is also called adnexal torsion and is a painful and serious condition that necessitates emergency action.

Endometriosis can cause endometroid cysts which are formed when a small area of endometrial tissue bleeds and is rejected. The tissue becomes transplanted to another place where it grows bigger. As blood builds up in the tissue it turns a darker shade of brown and is therefore referred to as a chocolate cyst. Upon final rupture of the cyst, the fluids inside can enter the uterus, pelvis and the bowels. Severe and unyielding pain is one of the main symptoms of endometriosis. It is when the cyst breaks that the pain is at its most intolerable.

If multiple follicular cysts are generated in the ovaries these are referred to as polycystic ovaries. This situation also known as polycystic ovarian syndrome causes problems with the correct menstruation cycle. PCOS retards the ovulation process making cysts filled with clear fluid develop next to the ovaries. PCOS is still not entirely clear to health care professionals. Nonetheless, the reasons for PCOS happening have been hypothesized as genetic weaknesses or lacking hormones. Studies indicate that insulin-resistant women have more chance of contracting PCOS. The same ovarian cells that are active in the development of teeth and hair can also contribute to dermoid cysts. This is an infrequent kind of cyst but can grow big and turn out to be quite painful. It is also frequent that women with ovarian cysts mix up the signs of endometriosis with signs of pelvic inflammatory disease.

It is often late in the diagnosis when ovarian cyst torsion is identified which often leads to necrosis or infarction of the cyst. The pain is intense in cases of ovarian torsion even if no cases of death have been recorded. Ovarian cyst torsion can be caused by a number of factors, one common one being anatomic changes. Cyst torsion is frequent for young teenagers with abnormal development such as long fallopian tubes or an absence of mesosalpinx. The presence of a large corpus lustrum during pregnancy increases the risk that the patient will suffer ovarian torsion.

Ovarian cysts whether benign or malignant are all in potential danger of torsion. There is no long-term remedy using prescription medicines for painful ovarian cysts, even if temporary pain alleviation may be gained. There are numerous factors that are involved in the existence of painful ovarian cysts. These factors may either generate cysts or simply worsen the condition of those that already exist. Women who are undergoing infertility treatment with ovulation induction for example are even more menaced. The explanation is that the theca luteum cysts will typically make the volume of the ovaries bigger. A holistic solution however will address the fundamental underlying problem and in this way bring a long lasting solution. Conventional medicine on the other hand only works on the symptoms. Any results are therefore short-lived and may be subject to different side effects. A holistic agenda is a program working at different levels to target all the real reasons that ovarian cysts develop.
