An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that grows on the ovary. The size of the cyst can vary greatly and may contain blood or other material. Ovarian cysts can be either functional or non-functional.

There are several types of ovarian cysts including:

  • Functional cysts are the most common type, and they usually occur as a result of the normal reproductive cycle
  • Endometriomas are cysts caused by endometriosis, a condition in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus
  • Dermoid cysts contain various tissue types, including hair, skin, and even teeth
  • Cystadenomas are cysts that contain fluid and are usually benign
  • Cyst-like formations are collections of cells that do not form a true cyst

Most cysts are harmless and will go away on their own.

Causes and risk factors for ovarian cysts

Ovarian cysts can be caused by a variety of factors, including:
  • hormonal imbalances
  • endometriosis
  • polycystic ovary syndrome

Ovarian cyst diagnosis

The most common way to diagnose an ovarian cyst is through an abdominal ultrasound. This imaging test uses sound waves to create a picture of the internal organs and can detect any cysts on the ovaries. Other tests that may be used to detect cysts include a physical exam, a CT scan, an MRI scan, and blood tests. Depending on the size and type of cyst, a biopsy may also be performed. In some cases, your doctor may recommend a laparoscopy to confirm the diagnosis. During a laparoscopy, a thin tube with a camera is inserted through a small incision in your abdomen.

Treatment at our Orange, Parkes and Bathurst for an ovarian cyst generally depends on its size and symptoms. In most cases, small ovarian cysts that do not cause symptoms will go away on their own with no treatment.

If an ovarian cyst does cause symptoms, treatment may include birth control pills, pain medications, or surgery.

Ovarian cyst removal surgery

Surgery may be necessary to remove the cyst or a portion of the ovary via procedures known as laparoscopy or a laparotomy.

Ruptured ovarian cysts​

A ruptured ovarian cyst can cause severe abdominal pain.


Ovarian torsion occurs when the cyst twists on the ovary, cutting off the blood supply and causing pain.


In rare cases, an ovarian cyst can be cancerous.


If the ovaries are affected by cysts, it can lead to infertility.


Pelvic pain

Women with ovarian cysts may experience pelvic pain, especially during menstruation.


Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)

Women with ovarian cysts may experience pelvic pain, especially during menstruation.

Prevention of ovarian cysts


It is not possible to completely prevent ovarian cysts from forming; however, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk.

These include:

  • regular pelvic exams and ultrasounds
  • maintaining a healthy weight
  • eating a balanced diet
  • avoiding hormone therapy or fertility drugs.

In addition to these steps, it is important to be aware of any changes in your body and to report any unusual symptoms to your doctor.

This includes any pelvic pain, bloating, or changes in your menstrual cycle. Early detection and treatment of ovarian cysts can help reduce the risk of complications.
