Cysts in the ovary may cause one side of the pelvic area to feel sore or result in a burning sensation. It may make the area tender and sensitive to touch and can cause a sharp pain very like that of appendicitis.
Ovarian cysts are very common in women and often do not cause any pain or problems. Cysts are usually small and can be located inside or outside the ovaries. They cause pain when they become larger and press against other tissue in the body. These cysts are formed when, during the menstrual cycle, the ovaries produce a follicle that releases an egg. If the egg does not get released or if the follicle does not disintegrate, a cyst is formed. These cysts sometimes disintegrate on their own in the next menstrual cycle, but they can also grow and accumulate over time. Lack of proper liver function and a low-fiber diet are probable causes of cyst formation.
Harmless ovarian cysts, known as functional cysts, are generally asymptomatic. However, in some cases, ovarian cysts can be painful or dangerous if they are malignant. Some functional cysts contain or release blood and are known as hemorrhagic cysts. At times, these cysts burst causing the contents to leak resulting in a burning sensation throughout the pelvic area but mainly around the ovaries. Ovary burning sensation may be accompanied by other generic symptoms like nausea or vomiting, pressure or pain in the abdomen, weight gain, painful sex, etc. These symptoms are also associated with other conditions such as endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy, or pelvic inflammatory disease. The process of ovulation can bring about sudden painful or burning sensations due to the cyst in some women.
As a disorder the formation of cyst in the ovarian tissues of women is not a rare phenomenon and cysts are quite prevalent in the ovaries of women. Their detection is more commonly by accident as happens during a regular or routine physical examination of the pelvic region by a physician as they appear and disappear on their own and have no symptoms. Deficiency of fiber in the diet, saturated fats, and products from white flour, like pasta, excess meat or rice lack the fiber necessary for health and may be the reason for imbalances in the levels of hormones in the body resulting in the formation of cysts. Liver dysfunction could impair the detoxification of hormones leading to cysts. Because the chances of malignancy are high in cysts that develop in women after menopause these should be checked for potential signs of cancer. Excessive hair or irregular menses could indicate polycystic ovarian syndrome. Seeing a doctor is important for an official diagnosis of ovarian cysts.
The holistic medicine approach is the most ideal way of treating any pain or burning sensation of the ovaries. It complements the conventional treatment, causes no side effects and gets to the very root of the problem resulting in permanent cure.
