To put it plainly, ovarian cysts are nothing but small sacs filled with fluid occurring within or around the ovaries. These cysts do not cause any trouble and are asymptomatic in nature. It may so happen that the woman doesn't even get to know of their presence, and they disappear on their own. However, sometimes the cysts can lead to excessive pain, discomfort, swelling stomach, bloated stomach, stomach cramps and various other symptoms.
Although ovarian cysts are generally benign, sometimes they can turn malignant, or can burst or twist causing excessive bleeding within the body and leading to medical emergencies. Surgery may be recommended if there is a possibility of this.
Types of Surgery of Ovarian Cysts
The different types of surgery depend on the size of ovarian cysts. The two different types of surgery are:
Laparoscopy - In this procedure, a small incision is made in the abdominal area through which a small device is inserted. Through this device the surgeon is able to see inside the abdomen, the ovaries, the pelvic cavity etc. If the cyst is small, then the surgeon removes it through another small incision made in the pubic hair line.
Laparotomy - If the cyst is bigger, then this process is used. A bigger incision is made so that the cyst can be removed. The cyst is sent to the lab in order to get tested. If the cyst is malignant then the surgeon might need to remove one or both the ovaries.
However surgery does not provide a permanent solution. The cysts might come back again. Removing the ovaries completely to cure the cysts also completely removes the chances of the woman ever becoming pregnant. The only way you can cure the cysts safely, is through the holistic mode of treatment. The holistic method permanently eradicates the root causes of ovarian cysts thus making sure that they never appear again.
