cm ovarian cysts and their treatments
Ovarian cysts are formed when the follicles inside the ovaries that contain the maturing egg fail to release the egg due to some unusual reason. Or when the opening of the follicle again closes up after the egg has been released and continues to grow, it forms a cyst.
Generally cysts are benign in nature i.e. they do not cause any harm and are generally asymptomatic i.e. they do not have any symptoms. In most cases the diagnosis of such a cyst is generally accidental. They are detected during a routine pelvic examination or an ultrasound conducted for some other reason. These cysts generally disappear on their own in a few months time with little or no medication. But there are some symptoms that might sometimes give you an idea that you might be suffering from ovarian cysts; a dull throbbing pain in your abdomen, pain in the pelvic area, irregular menstruations, too heavy or too low flow than normal, pain during sex, tenderness in the breast area, an urge to urinate too often, vomiting and nausea.
Sometimes a cyst might rupture or burst or even twist on itself. In such cases there might be severe excruciating pain and bleeding. Such a case requires immediate and appropriate medical treatment, it might also require surgery. Sometimes a cyst might be found to be cancerous or malignant in nature, though generally cysts are benign in nature. When an ovarian cyst occurs during a woman's post menopausal stage, the cyst has more chances of turning malignant.
The size of the ovarian cysts can vary from a little pea size to that of soccer balls. Some cysts can grow so big that they start creating pressure on other organs; such as when a cyst starts putting pressure on the bladder you might find that you need to urinate more often or that you feel the urge to urinate more often.
A 4.2 cm ovarian cyst
If you have an ovarian cyst smaller than 4.2 or 4 cm then the doctor will suggest regular ultrasounds, so that the cyst can be monitored regularly and carefully. Simple cysts that are smaller than 4.2 cm disappear with little medication. But if the ultrasound shows that the cyst is still growing then it requires a more serious approach. Complicated or complex cysts need to be removed by surgery irrespective of their size.
Though in some cases surgery is the only option available but in many cases the surgery can be avoided if you opt for the holistic approach when looking for a cure for ovarian cysts. The conventional methods only address the symptoms without bothering about the cause. A cyst larger than 4.2 cm might be removed with surgery and the problem solved for the time being. But the factor that caused the cyst remains and in a few years of time another cyst maybe much bigger than the last one occurs again. Surgery can't guarantee that the cyst won't form again.
But holistic approach addresses the root cause and eliminates it. There are various factors that can lead to the formation of ovarian cysts. Factors ranging from physical to emotional, to environmental; diet related factors to factors related to lifestyle. The holistic approach takes everything into consideration, it treats each cyst as unique and tries to identify the cause behind it and then eliminate it completely. Holistic approach can definitely help you if you are looking for a complete cure for ovarian cysts.
