A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired.

I have bad menstrual cramps only on the left side. Was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst 5 years ago.
I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but I've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?
Start medically: Because of your age most people would start with medical treatments such as birth control pills or Lupron (leuprolide) or iud. Or do laparoscopy. It is also important to know what's the cause of the pain to know if a hysterectomy would help. Also, knowing the cause would determine if the ovaries need to be removed — a full hysterectomy. ...Read more

Ruptured cyst: It is very common for ovarian cysts to rupture, and at that time, you can have abdominal cramping that feels like a period. This is nothing to worry about. If your pain is difficult to bear, however, or if you have a fever, or nausea/vomiting, then see your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more
When is the best time to have an ultrasound for ovarian cysts (complex). Before the menstrual cycle or after? Will there be any difference?
Could severe cramps while running be caused by my ovarian cysts? I run often and these cramps usually only occur close to menstrual and last a while.
Possibly: Although the Cysts might be causing your cramps, more likely the cramping is menstrually related-that is related to hormonal changes occurring with your cycle. You need to follow up with a Gyn. You possibly need a thorough examination, hormone studies and Ultrasound to help define exactly what is going on. Generally, at your age, severe cramping is not unusual but can be helped. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: Ovarian cysts can be functional or pathologic. Pathologic ovarian cysts can cause abnormal blood levels of certain tests.

Ovarian cysts are...: Caused by hormonal imbalance in patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Other ovarian cysts are not. In pcos, free testosterone is elevated (decrease in sex hormone biding globulin) ; associated with hyperinsulinemia, which is caused by Insulin resistance. If you have non-pcos cysts, the answer is probably not! Pcos is part of metabolic syndrome! Hirsuitism is common in pcos, not other cysts. ...Read more
If ovarian cysts mess with hormones, does that mean that once they are gone for good there is a chance that depression can go away for good?
Probably doesn't: Simple ovarian cysts (only fluid inside them) tend to come and go and probably don't affect your fertility. If the cyst reaches a large size (>5cm) then it can cause pain. Rarely a very large cyst (>8cm) can lead to ovarian torsion which is a medical emergency (you could end up losing that ovary). An endometrioma is a cyst filled with old blood. Endometriosis is associated with decreased fertility ...Read more

Ultrasound: Ovarian cysts are best evaluated by transvaginal ultrasound. If you are young and have periods, most cysts are ok, though they may grow large and rupture and cause pain. If you have gone through menopause, ovarian cysts need to be followed more closely, since they may be cancer. Pelvic MRI is helpful in evaluating persistent cysts or cysts which may partially contain solid tissue. ...Read more
Complex question: This depends on many details: your medical history, your family history, features seen on ultrasound like size, solid areas, blood flow.
