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: 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

I have been diagnosed with a 6x6x2 CM ovarian cyst. I niw have symptoms of a bad uti. Can this be related?

Here are some. ..: A 6x6x2-cm ovarian cyst shouldn't be related with UTI, which is common among women and usually uncomplicated.

2 ovarian cysts showing endometriomas. Both in a retro uterine location. Right one measuring 4 x 3.6cm and the left 6x4.5cm. How bad is my condition?

Significant: Ultrasounds are fairly accurate in the diagnosis of endometriomas. Any endometrioma over 3 cm should be removed. If fertility is not important, have uterus and both ovaries removed.
