Hello, Anon! Thank you for posting.

I can give you some general information. Ovarian cysts are small sacs that form in or on an ovary. Ovarian cysts can be simple or complex, depending on the substances that are inside them. Complex ovarian cysts are those that contain either blood or a solid substance. Complex cysts are more likely to need treatment than simple cysts. A doctor may recommend surgery when a cyst is becoming too large, interfering with the ovary or other organs, or is painful.

A surgeon will often use laparoscopy to remove an ovarian cyst and/or the ovary if deemed necessary and check for any cancerous cells. Most ovarian cysts are found to be benign, meaning that they are noncancerous. If cancer is found, a hysterectomy would then most likely be recommended.
