About Ovarian Cyst Removal

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.
What is Ovarian Cyst Removal?
Ovarian cyst removal is a medical procedure for removing cysts that are formed in the ovaries.

Most ovarian cysts disappear without treatment. Some cysts in the ovaries may be treated with medication using birth control pills. This stops ovulation which stops new cysts from developing.

Ovarian cysts that do not disappear on their own or those that are 5 to 10 centimeters in size may be removed by surgery to ensure that the cyst is not cancerous. Surgery may also be needed if some patients who are menopausal. Surgery to remove an ovarian cyst may be done by a Cystectomy without removing the ovary. If cancer is found, the ovaries may be removed by performing an Oophorectomy.

How is Ovarian Cyst Removal Surgery Performed?
Surgery to remove ovarian cysts may be performed either by laparotomy or by a laparoscopic method.
  • Laparotomy: Laparotomy or open surgery is done if the ovarian cyst is very large and in cases of cancer. A large incision is made in the patient’s abdomen during laparotomy that enables the surgeon to view and examine the area closely. The blood vessels are clamped and the cyst is removed. If the cyst is ruptured, the deposits from the cysts are extracted from the abdomen. A biopsy will be performed on the removed cyst.
  • Laparoscopy: Laparoscopy is used to remove ovarian cysts in a less invasive way. Laparoscopic surgery involves the use of a laparoscope that is inserted through a small incision below the navel. A laparoscope is an endoscopic tube with a camera and light attached to it. Other tiny incisions are also made through which surgical instruments are inserted to remove the ovarian cyst.

How to Prepare for Ovarian Cyst Removal?
  • The patient is required to do some tests, and will be physically examined by the doctor.
  • The patient may be required to stop taking certain medication a week before the surgery.
  • The doctor should be informed about any ailment or medical conditions of the patient.
