Sacs or pockets of fluid-filled growths in or outside the ovaries are known as ovarian cysts. They usually occur due to the monthly cycle that all women go through and are commonly termed as functional cysts. Regarding the development of these cysts, they tend to form when either there's no release of the egg, or the sac in which the egg develops doesn't dissolve although the egg may have already been released. From pelvic pain before or after menstruation, breast tenderness, nausea to dull pain in the thighs and lower back, these are a few of the symptoms of this condition.
