In most cases, it is seen that ovarian cyst is benign and they tend to naturally start to go away with the right cysts treatment. These developments lead to nominal ovarian cyst symptoms but the regular diagnosis is necessary so that the cysts don't become cancerous in near future. Ovarian torsion is also yet another complication of ovarian cyst and takes place when a big cyst makes the ovary to move away or get twisted from its original position. In such instance, you will have to consult a gynecologist without any delay as the blood supply to the ovary is constricted and lead to damage and even death of the ovarian tissue. Though it is very rare, ovarian torsion accounts for about 3 percent of emergency surgeries. Another rare condition is rupturing of cysts which may lead to excruciating pain along with internal bleeding. This complex ovarian cyst inevitably increases the risk of developing other infections which can be life-threatening if not treated properly. Your gynecologist can assess your conditions and determine whether you have ovarian cyst or cyst on liver. He may advise an ultrasound test if he notices swelling on any of the ovaries to confirm the presence of cysts. The ultrasound is a form of ultrasonography which makes use of high-frequency sound waves for producing an image of the internal organs. This test also helps in determining the size, location, composition and shape of the cyst.
