Ovarian Cyst

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that grow inside an ovary.  They can affect women of all ages and most are small and benign and do not cause problems or pain.  Most ovarian cysts disappear after a few weeks without treament.  In some cases the cysts can grow large, rupture and cause pain which will prompt your doctor to perform laparoscopic surgery to remove the cyst.
