Ovarian Cysts. Treatment depends on the type of cysts one has. For example women may have a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome which causes many cysts in the ovaries and other complications. The treatment of this would be different from other types of cysts. It is necessary to have a complete physical and evaluation to determine the cause of the cysts and then treatment can follow.
Ovarian cysts. The ovary will create a cyst every month during ovulation in women of reproductive age. This is a normal function of the ovary. If this cyst is large (greater than6 cm)it may cause pain. If the cyst on ultrasound looks simple (no particles in it just fluid) we can observe and usually resolve spontaneously. Studies have looked at pill vs no pill for dissolving the cyst and there is no difference.
