I have ovarian cysts. I feel a bubble down by my clitoris but it's inside. It hurts. Is this a cyst? I got them before but they usually go away.
See your GYN: A "bubble" near the clitoris which is "inside" is still close enough to the surface not to be an ovarian cyst. It might be a Bartholin's cyst which has gotten large enough to be felt near the clitoris, though those glands are generally further towards the base of the labia. In any case, it's something you should have looked at by your GYN doctor, to see if it needs antibiotics or drainage. ...Read more

How do women get ovarian cysts? I was told having ovarian cysts can be fatal, is this true or false? And how do we get them and why do we get them? Why do they hurt so bad when it bursts?
Ovarian cysts are most often "follicular" in origin. This means that the ovary is trying to ovulate and doesn't release the egg or "luteinize", which means become a corpus luteum. It will then persist or sometimes enlarge. Follicular cysts appear black on ultrasound as they contain only fluid (which transmits the sound better than tissue).
Another type of ovarian cyst is a hemorrhagic corpus luteum. This too is related to ovulation. During the release of the egg, the wall of the follicle may break through a blood vessel causing bleeding in the abdomen or into the cyst cavity. These will appear acutely often accompanied by pain. On ultrasound, they have "mixed echogenicity" meaning a combination of solid and cystic components. Women can have significant bleeding with hemorrhagic cysts particularly if they are on blood thinners or have bleeding disorders. Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts will often resolve over time spontaneously and require surgery on some occasions.
Ovarian cyst that continue to enlarge are suspicious for neoplasms or tumors. These can be benign or malignant (cancerous). A common benign tumor is a teratoma, often called a "dermoid" tumor.
For functional cysts (follicular and corpus luteum) prevention is commonly afforded through the use of oral contraceptives. ...Read more
