Help for Ovarian Cysts
Ovarian cysts are not something to be taken lightly. They are a sign that something is wrong with
your body, and you need to listen to that message. However, your options to remove these cysts are varied these
days, and you no longer have to have surgery to get rid of these growths.
There is a great audio presentation that is most informative, and that I highly recommend by
Dr. Dillman. You can read more about it by clicking here. This will give you a chance to sign up for an
informative 10 part mini -series that it is worth subscribing to, and in these emails you will find
the audio course information too. And don't worry you can unsubscribe from these emails any time you choose.
Ovarian Cyst Symptoms
By Lorna Mclaren
Ovarian Cyst Symptoms are varied and can vary from woman to woman. Quite often a woman can have Ovarian Cysts
without having any symptoms at all. Ovarian Cysts can cause the following problems:
- pressure, bloating or abdominal pain,
- dull ache in thighs and lower back,
- problems with passing urine,
- sexual intercourse can be painful,
- weight gain,
- abnormal bleeding or painful menstrual periods,
- vomiting or nausea,
These are the more common symptoms that can be associated with Ovarian Cysts and should be checked out
by your doctor to determine the cause.
If you experience any of the following symptoms you should seek medical advice immediately:
- pain with fever and vomiting,
- sudden, severe abdominal pain,
- faintness, dizziness or weakness,
Generally speaking if you do have Ovarian Cysts they will be found during a routine pelvic examination.
An ultrasound may then be carried out to determine shape, size, location and whether the cyst is fluid
filled, solid or a mixture of both.
A blood test will be carried out to find out if the Ovarian Cyst is cancerous. This test is recommended
for women over the age of 35 and whose cyst has been found to be partially solid. Under 35's are less
likely to have ovarian cancer.
It is wise to remember that Ovarian Cysts can not be prevented and the treatment generally involves
waiting for around 1-3 menstrual periods to occur and then a re-examination of the cyst to determine if
anything has changed.
My advice would always be to not put off that pelvic exam as wonderful as they are as your health
should be one of your top priorities.
Wishing you Good Health!
