Can you suggest any alternative treatments to reduce cysts?

Where?: Cystic change in the breasts is very common. Of course if you have a dominant breast mass, it needs to be seen as a possible cancer. Mainstream medicine has little to offer.

Surgery best: A "chocolate" cyst occurs when endometriosis attaches to the ovary and bleeds into it. The old blood collects and forms a cyst. Your previous surgery did not cause this, and medical treatment of endometriosis will not get rid of it. surgery is the best option. ...Read more

How many percentage of chances is there in chocolate cyst to shrink within itself only by avoiding food that boost up estrogen in our body ?

No Chances of Shrink: Chocolate cysts are endometriosis cysts on the ovary. There are no drugs or diet changes that will make those go away. Based on the way they form, they can't really decrease in size - only increase over time. Surgery is the only way to make the cyst disappear and even with surgery, there is a 15-20% chance the cyst will re-form. ...Read more

Not usual: Ovarian cysts form every month in healthy young women. Normal ovaries may be filled with small cysts (known as functional cysts). Once in a while, a cyst will become large and may cause pain due to pressure on surrounding tissues. Many ovarian cysts resolve on their own in 3-4 weeks, but an enlarged cyst can rupture causing significant pain. Hopefully you will not need surgery again. ...Read more
