Ovarian Cysts Directory

Fluid-filled sacs (cysts) often form on the ovaries. There are several different types of ovarian cysts, the most common being functional cysts. Often, ovarian cysts do not cause symptoms. You may not realize you have one until you visit your ob-gyn for a routine exam. Ovarian cysts can cause problems if they twist, bleed, or rupture. So it's important to have regular gynecologic exams so that any problems can be diagnosed and treated. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about ovarian cysts, what they look like, how to treat them, and much more.
