REVELATION Of Ovarian Cysts Treatment

Jul 18, 2008
The way that ovarian cysts are treated is typically dependent on whether or not the patient has reached menopause or has moved beyond. Treating ovarian cysts will also be a matter of the type of symptoms that are detected and the pain that the patient may be in. The various cyst types are also a key factor to determine how it will be treated.

Women in pre-menopausal condition

It is possible that without any external action, cysts will in fact disappear by themselves after a couple of months. Surgery would therefore not be the first choice to treat pre-menopausal women. In a few instances, the ovary may suffer torsion inside the body because of the cyst, which then blocks the flow of blood or occasions the rupture of the cyst inside the ovary. These emergency medical cases then typically require immediate surgical operation. Therefore, if a cyst appears benign under the examination by a sonogram and there is no discomfort to the patient, the first thing is to manage by observation for a couple of months. If a cyst has not cleared by itself after treatment and is also causing intense pain to the patient, then surgery will be the next treatment.

Fundamental surgery as a solution for ovarian cysts

Preliminary surgery for an ovarian cyst may be to take out and drain a cyst or it might be to take the ovary out completely. The doctor may also recommend the removal of the entire ovary if the nature of your cyst and your age mean that you are more at risk from ovarian cancer. If the doctor thinks cancer may be the case then the cyst must absolutely remain unbroken so as to stop possible malignancy from other cells going into the abdominal cavity. In this case and to avoid ovarian cancer, the doctor will suggest that the entire ovary be taken out. Sometimes even though a cyst is very big, it can be taken out leaving the surrounding tissues to mend with minimal additional surgery. However cysts that are very big can destroy the ovarian environments and lead to the entire organ needing to be removed.

What is the effect on you of having an ovary removed

If it is a matter of the size of your cyst then only a single ovary would be taken out. There is no significant effect on your fertility if you have not reached menopause because one ovary can produce enough eggs and hormones to induce pregnancy. However if cancer is suspected then both ovaries may be taken out. Any surgery done to handle an ovarian cyst will often be for both ovaries in the case of women after menopause. Because the ovaries no longer generate estrogen or progesterone in women after menopause, removal of both has little consequence on the well being of women. Some women after menopause have indicated a loss of sexual desire or libido after the removal of ovaries. This can typically be countered with a treatment of small doses of testosterone.

The recommendation may be to remove both ovaries if the doctor finds any cancerous tissue. Of course, the doctor will discuss this case with the sufferer before any surgery is done. The ovary to be removed is tested quickly for cancer cells for women before menopause.

Surgery by Laparoscopy

The medical name for taking a cyst out of the ovary is a cystectomy. The cyst can be described as a small container filled with fluid. Opening the cyst by using a laparoscopic instrument means that the fluid can aspirated before carefully removing the cyst itself. The patient can leave the hospital 1 full day after the treatment and is typically able to resume professional work after fourteen days of rest. Treatment for ovarian cysts involves surgery using laparoscopy. A laparoscope is used to do the surgery, meaning an instrument with a camera that is inserted via small cuts at the pelvic bone into the abdomen. The patient recovers more quickly and there are only very small cuts left in the patient's skin when surgery is done in this fashion.

While surgery is done, surgeons take pains to leave as much healthy ovarian tissue as possible in place so as to preserve the creation of eggs. Surgery is a possible treatment for ovarian cysts, but does have some possible risks. In certain cases, if a cyst is too big the ovary must be taken out which means the destruction of all normal ovarian tissues. However a holistic program is available to you that addresses the underlying cause of ovarian cysts and which is also an effective, long-term solution without secondary effects.
