Ovarian Cyst Removal

Compare 15 clinics

An ovarian cyst is a fluid covered by a sack, formed on an ovary. While some types of ovarian cysts do not pose any threat to patient’s life and health, some may lead to serious health problems such as ovarian cancer. For this reason, every case of ovarian cyst is carefully examined by doctors in order to find out whether an ovarian cyst removal surgery needs to be performed or not. In the recent years, more and more patients decide to undergo their treatment of ovarian cyst abroad in order to avoid high costs or to enjoy the recovery in a new environment.
As for what causes ovarian cysts, there are two main reasons. Functional, or non-threatening ovarian cysts, are created follicle protecting the eggs and appear naturally. Pathological ovarian cysts develop from cancer cells and may cause harm or even death if not treated. Some ovarian cysts are caused by other medical conditions such as endometriosis.

Ovarian Cyst Removal Candidates

Symptoms of ovarian cyst are quite similar to ovarian cancer symptoms. These include:
• Pelvic pain (also during intercourse)
• Bloating, nausea
• Feeling full
• Problems with bowel movements and urinating
Women experiencing ovarian cyst symptoms should contact their doctor in order to find out what is their source.

Am I Suitable for Ovarian Cyst Removal?

Most of the women with ovarian cysts are able to undergo ovarian cyst removal surgery. Although some of the patients are afraid of having this operation while pregnant, it was proven that laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy does not pose harm to pregnancy. However, other medical issues and generally bad health (f.e. caused by cancer) may obstruct the conduction of cyst removal surgery.

Preparing for Ovarian Cyst Removal

The first step in your ovarian cyst removal preparation should be to let your doctor know about medical issues you have and medicines taken by you. Using blood-thinners such as aspirin is dissuaded due to possible extensive bleeding during and after treatment of ovarian cyst. You will be asked to fast for some hours before cyst removal. There is also a possibility that you will need to have a mechanical bowel preparation.

How is Ovarian Cyst Removal Performed?

There are two types of ovarian cyst removal surgery:
• Laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal – laparoscope is a small medical device allowing for 2-3 small cuts instead of an open surgery. With laparoscopic ovarian surgery, the doctor can see patient’s internal organs and precisely cut out the cyst.
• Laparotomy for ovarian cyst – laparotomy involves one larger cut through which cyst is resected.
Sometimes, a removal of ovaries is deemed necessary. Additionally, if a cyst is a sign of ovarian cancer, further resection may be conducted, involving hysterectomy surgery.

Ovarian Cyst Removal Recovery

Ovarian cyst removal recovery time depends on the type of surgery. As for laparoscopic ovarian cyst treatment, patients are sometimes able to leave hospital one day later, while treatment of ovarian cyst through laparotomy means a few days of hospital stay. Similarly, for patients who underwent laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal, the whole recovery period is around two-week-long, while laparotomy requires up to 6-8 weeks of recovery.

Scars after Ovarian Cyst Removal

Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy or laparoscopic ovary removal results in small scars which are hardly visible. However, laparotomy treatment for ovarian cyst will leave a big, usually vertical scar which may be quite visible.

Ovarian Cyst Removal Risks and Complications

While ovarian cyst treatment is a well-practiced one, there are some risks worth thinking about, such as:
• Internal bleeding
• Infection
• Damage to bowels or bladder

Ovarian Cyst Removal Side Effects

Ovarian Cyst Removal FAQ

?
When Treatment of Ovarian Cyst Requires Removal of Ovaries?

If during ovarian cyst removal doctors find out that you have ovarian cancer, they may decide to conduct the removal of ovaries.

?
When Do Doctors Decide for Laparotomy instead of Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy?

Laparotomy may be necessary when big-sized ovarian cancer is spotted and it is impossible to remove it with a laparoscope.

?
Is an Ovarian Cyst always a Reason for a Cyst Removal Surgery?
