Otherwise, the cyst is just a consequence of osteoarthritis of the spine. If compressive, the cyst can be treated by injection or eventually surgery. ...Read more

Hello, i was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst, which is causing me a lot of pain and making nauseous.Does this type of cyst have to be removed? And how?
