About ovarian cysts, removal is always a moot question.
To begin with, the vast majority of ovarian cysts are benign. Women (and even their doctors) don't seem to be aware of them until symptoms begin to show. If they have cervical pain, sudden weight gain, irregular periods, or worse - like facial and body hair or deepened voice - they get medically examined and the doctor will often confirm by simply palpating the ovarian area.
If necessary, they may order ultrasonic and even laparoscopic scans. Even then, their first line of treatment won't be radical.
Most ovarian cysts are harmless and disappear within a couple of menstrual cycles. Doctors will therefore wait, while monitoring closely and regularly. They may prescribe birth control pills to stop ovulation and prevent more cysts, and pain relievers as well. Finally when it seems that the ovarian cyst syndrome does not seem to go away, surgery will be prescribed.
Normally with most ovarian cysts, removal is unnecessary because they disappear anyway. Surgical removal happens for one of two reasons - either a cyst is infected or it is threatening the ovary or other organs, or it is unbearably painful.
Surgery may still not be attempted if the patient has a bad heart condition or high blood pressure or other conditions unless they can be first brought under control.
Surgery may not be avoidable in emergencies, but it has one major drawback. Removing cysts once is no guarantee of a non-recurrence. The fact is, prevention is wiser and safer by far, with a holistic approach to health. Holistic remedies treat the root causes of ovarian cysts and remove them, and once done, the cysts go away automatically. Holistic remedies work better than natural PCOS treatments and also conventional therapies that treat the symptoms and not the causes.
