What is an ovarian cyst?
It is a space inside your ovaries which is full of a liquidy substance. Cysts generally occur due to ovulation and in most cases, these cysts get reabsorbed by the body. But sometimes, it can lead to having problems like bloating, back pain etc. In some cases, the cyst tends to swell and begins growing in size.
Most women of the age of 35, who develop these cysts have non-cancerous cysts. In most cases, it is possible to detect cysts but if it has ruptured or has become very large or is blocking the blood supply, you will experience the following symptoms:
