Ovarian Cyst Removal Q & A

What is ovarian cyst removal?

Dr. Tajzoy performs ovarian cyst removal procedures to extract large and troublesome cysts from your body. In most cases, he uses laparoscopic surgical techniques to remove your cysts. These procedures are minimally invasive and often performed on an outpatient basis so you can recover in the comfort of your own home.

Laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal involves a few small incisions in your abdomen. Dr. Tajzoy inserts specially designed surgical instruments, including a laparoscope, into your abdomen. The laparoscope has a light and a camera on its tip that sends images of your organs to a video screen in the treatment room, allowing Dr. Tajzoy to examine your ovaries and remove your cysts carefully.

What are ovarian cysts?

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that grow on your ovaries. Your body produces physiologic cysts every month as part of the process of releasing an egg into your fallopian tubes and uterus. However, many women also produce pathologic cysts that serve no purpose.

These sacs can become quite large or leak fluid, both of which can cause painful symptoms that may include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Bloating and abdominal swelling
  • Painful sex
  • Inability to empty your bladder or bowel completely
  • Hormonal symptoms like irregular, heavy, and painful periods

Many conditions can cause these symptoms, so make an appointment at Emil Tajzoy, MD, for an exam and testing to identify the cause of your pain. Dr. Tajzoy ensures you get the treatment you need to restore your health and well-being.

What causes ovarian cysts?

In many cases, ovarian cyst growth is triggered by your hormones. While cysts often develop and disappear with your menstrual cycle, sometimes pathologic cysts continue to grow. In addition to your hormones, other risk factors for ovarian cysts include:

  • Personal or family history of cysts
  • Pregnancy
  • Endometriosis
  • Severe pelvic infections

During your diagnosis, Dr. Tajzoy also tries to identify the cause of your cysts, which can inform his decision on the best treatment to resolve your symptoms.

Are there other treatments for ovarian cysts?

Dr. Tajzoy often prescribes oral contraceptives to regulate your hormones and prevent recurring ovarian cysts. Contraceptives won’t shrink existing cysts but can stop new cysts from developing.

If you’re troubled by ovarian cysts, call Emil Tajzoy, MD, or schedule an appointment online today for expert diagnosis and treatment.
