Ovary Cysts and What Are Ovarian Cyst Symptoms

Posted Aug 04 2010 8:12am

< p>Ovarian cysts are liquid filled sacs, of many different types, that happen on the surface of the ovaries, or on the inside of the ovary. Their cause isn’t really known, but the most common relate to the general function of the ovary.

During ovulation an egg forms and, if not fertilized, dissolves after a few days. When something goes awry, familial, immune mechanism related, or an unknown cause, and the assimilation process is halted, a cyst forms. Either the ovum, the egg, remains and the sac fills with fluid, or after the ovum has been expelled or absorbed, the follicular sac remains and fills with liquid. These 2 are causes of functional cysts.

During ovulation, occuring halfway between the menstrual cycle, is when indications of an ovarian cysts most often manifest themselves as pointed pains, low back distress and as generalized abdominal discomfort. These sometimes are not significant and often disappear in few days or a week or so. If consistent discomfort every month, certainly an obstetrician should be consulted. Ovarian cysts aren’t carcenogenic, nor do they typically develop into .

Other kinds of ovarian cysts are polycystic cysts , meaning there are numerous tiny cysts in the ovaries, and possibly somewhere else in the body. This condition is know as poly cystic ovary syndrome ( PCOS ). It occurs when the cysts remain closed after the egg forms and fills with liquid.

Cysts that form on the surface of the ovaries are usually endometrial in origin. The endothelium, the lining of the uterus that sloughs off during menstruation, is the contributing factor. Part of this tissue somehow attaches itself to ovaries — and other intestinal areas and grow into unpleasant fluid contained cysts.

Other reasons behind ovarian cysts, although less common than follicular or straightforward ovarian cysts, are surface cysts that form from the tissue cells of the ovary. Not necessarily liquid filled but often these adenomas fill with liquids, therefore becoming cystadenomas.

Dermoid cysts may also form but they are rare. These are cysts that contain tissue that contain skin, hair , and other cellular tissue. These too can form in other bits of the body.
