Since most ovarian cysts are
functional and benign, they are not necessarily removed.
But even then, the ovary cyst
removal becomes a
necessity in certain cases. For instance, hemorrhagic or
blood cysts are often surgically removed as they can

incision is made in the abdomen and abdominal muscles
are separated to reveal the ovary. Blood
vessels supplying blood to the ovary is
thereafter clamped and securely tied. Cysts are then
carefully removed, and if cancer is suspected, the
ovaries are also removed.
Laparoscopic surgery, on the
other hand, is minimally invasive as it entails small
incisions or holes made just below the navel through
which the laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen. The next step
consists of pumping CO2 gas into the abdomen as a result
of which, the surgeon can get a clear picture of the
abdominal organs. However, after the cysts are located
by the laparoscope, a few additional holes are drilled
