How does the size of an ovarian cyst affect you? The questions you want answering are whether its size could affect your chances of getting pregnant. Whether it could be cancerous and whether you need surgery. Now before you can even begin to get these answers, you need to get along to the doctors for an ultrasound which is the only way to know its exact size. If you are diagnosed as having a large ovarian cyst then you need to know your options, since a large ovarian cyst is more prone to be painful or to rupture.
Now there are a few types of ovarian cysts that you should be aware of, and they are as follows:
1.Follicular cysts which can grow to over 2 inches but are not normally painful
2.Cystadenomas cysts which are formed from cells on the outside of the ovary. They are often filled with fluid and can grow large and be very painful
3.Dermoid cysts which are cysts that are formed of different cells. It is possible for them to contain hair, teeth and other tissue which all forms part of the cyst. They can be extremely painful.
Although all of the above cysts can be painful they are unlikely to be cancerous and they are not permanent. There is no need to live a life with cysts because the majority of them will go away of their own accord and the good news is that there are natural treatments, that you can do yourself at home, that will both ease any pain that you have and also help to shrink the cysts and get rid of them.
If you are diagnosed with a large ovarian cyst then you will most likely be offered medication or surgery by your doctor. But don't jump to the conclusion that these are your only options. Both of these options have their downsides. The problem is that the medication offered will most likely be hormonal and this can often create side effects and can actually aggravate the cyst and make it worse, and secondly surgery is costly and not without slight risks, and quite often the cysts can reappear.
Many women are led to believe that medication and surgery are the only choices when it comes to dealing with a large ovarian cyst, but believe me when I say that there are natural treatments that are proven to successfully shrink the cyst and prevent it from recurring. You don't have to live a life of pain, bloating and feelings of nausea, if you take action now, you can start to change your life for the better.
