Treatment options vary, depending on the woman's age and desire for children. The type, size, and age of the cyst are considered. Treatments include the following:
Oral contraceptives may cause nausea, bloating, and headaches. Surgery may cause bleeding, infection, or allergic reaction to anesthesia.
More frequent pelvic exams may be suggested by a healthcare provider for the first year after surgery. Certain cysts have a chance of returning.
Certain cysts may recur, so the healthcare provider may recommend regular ultrasounds. Any new or worsening symptoms should be reported to the healthcare provider.
