Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that grow on the ovaries. Most ovarian cysts do not have symptoms, do not require treatment, and are benign (not cancerous).
However, some ovarian cysts may require treatment if they are large, painful, show symptoms, or result from endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). If a cyst does cause symptoms, they may include:
- Heaviness in your abdomen
- Pelvic pain
No matter the type or cause of an ovarian cyst, the gynecologic experts at University of Miami Health are here to help care for you and provide individualized treatments.
