Large ones do: Very large ovarian cysts can cause fatigue just by their weight to carry around. However, those patients often look and feel pregnant.

A 31-year-old member asked:

What causes an ovarian cyst to calcify?

Depends: Most normal ovarian cysts do not calcify. When they do, they are usually not the normal follicular / ovulatory cyst. A calcified cyst is more likely to be a dermoid, fibroid, fibroma, or even a cancer. It will usually need to be removed surgically.

A 18-year-old female asked:

What can cause having an ovarian cyst?

Dr. Anthony Filly

Very common: A cyst is a fluid filled sac. Every month, your ovary makes several of these called follicles. The dominant follicle breaks open and releases an egg. If one does not burst, and grows to over 3 cm, we call it a cyst.
