Ovarian cysts behave differently. While most of them are ghost-like, growing and dissipating within the ovary/ovaries on their own, others tend to grow into abnormally large size, creating pressure on the urinary bladder or other adjoining organs in the pelvic region. Some again can twist while hanging through their thin stem and eventually burst or rupture, spilling their contents all over the pelvic region. This not only creates intense pain, but can also cause complications that need immediate treatment. Surprisingly enough, some rupturing ovarian cysts resolve on their own, thus requiring little medical attention. But still, there will be that intense pain for which you will need medical intervention.
It is thus necessary to seek professional advice as early as possible. Doctors faced with such a situation would first of all like to know if there is any emergency involved, and if the answer is affirmative, then the person would start the treatment at once. If, on the other hand, things are within control USG investigations may be made to determine the extent of damage caused by the ruptured cyst. Sometimes, CT Scanning and MRI are also needed to find out the type of cyst that has ruptured and the course of treatment to be adopted for the patient.
Of course there is another situation where the cyst has not yet ruptured, but its size is so big that it may. In such a situation, the necessary action has to be taken promptly to ensure that it does not rupture.
Other than high intensity of pain, very irregular periods, scanty or heavy menstruation bleeding, rupturing does not provide any other symptom. So the attending physicians have to solely depend on USG reports to diagnose ruptured ovarian cysts . Ruptured ovarian cysts may also be identified through the effects that include twisting of the ovary and in some cases scarring also takes effect.
It is always best to treat the root causes so that the cysts do not appear in the first place. The best cyst treatment in this regard is holistic remedies that treat these causes and not the symptoms like conventional treatments. That is why holistic remedies are so successful with the ovarian cyst syndrome.
