What Are Ovarian Cysts and How Are They Treated?
Ovarian cysts are sacs filled with fluid and/or other tissue that form in or on the ovaries. Ovarian cysts are quite common and occur most commonly in women with regular periods, although they can occur after menopause and during childbearing years. Most ovarian cysts are benign (non-cancerous) and go away on their own. It is rare for a cyst to be malignant (cancerous).
