What is ovarian cyst removal?

Cysts can be removed surgically, either through a cystectomy, laparoscopy or laparotomy. Ovarian cyst removal is usually conducted when a cyst is causing uncomfortable symptoms or if ovarian cancer is suspected. Some other reasons for undergoing ovarian cyst removal surgery include:

  • The ovarian cyst is particularly large
  • The ovarian cyst does not decrease in size or disappear after three months
  • There are cysts in both ovaries

What are the benefits of ovarian cyst removal?

Ovarian cyst removal is highly effective, and it is possible for your surgeon to remove a cyst without damaging either your ovary or impacting on your fertility.
