Ovarian cysts are formed within the ovaries during a woman’s reproductive years.
They can occur at any age and range widely in size. They can be as small as a pebble or becomes as big as a plum. These cysts are the result of an accumulation of fluid within the thin ovary wall.
If an ovarian follicle is bigger than two centimeters then it happens to be an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts cause several symptoms like:
- irregular menstrual cycles,
- pelvic pain,
- breast pain and tenderness,
- pelvic pain before and during menstruation,
- heavy bleeding during menstruation,
- heaviness in the abdomen and pain when passing stool.
The main causes for cysts are hormonal imbalances, irregular periods, certain medicines taken to treat infertility, hypothyroidism, breast cancer and cigarette smoking.
