It is extremely important to observe our body and notice if anything seems not dangerous, and could be. Sometimes we always ignore things that we usually feel in our body until we don’t know that its already too late and the sickness that we overlook often is already severe.
Often in women occur ovarian cysts that are completely benign and disappear on their own, however, when the cyst will grow it can cause serious problems.
According to Mayo Clinic, Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs or pockets in an ovary or on its surface. Women have two ovaries, each about the size and shape of an almond on each side of the uterus. Eggs (ova), which develop and mature in the ovaries, are released in monthly cycles during the childbearing years.
Many women have ovarian cysts at some time. Most ovarian cysts present little or no discomfort and are harmless. The majority disappears without treatment within a few months.
However, ovarian cysts, especially those that have ruptured, can cause serious symptoms. To protect your health, get regular pelvic exams and know the symptoms that can signal a potentially serious problem.
Here are some symptoms – early warnings that you must not ignore them and may mean you have ovarian cyst:
Bloating or swelling of the abdomen
Painful intestinal motility
Pelvic pain before and after the menstrual cycle
Pain during sexual intercourse
Pain in the lower back or thighs
Vomiting and nausea
As you can see, many of the symptoms point to the beginning of the menstrual cycle and even pregnancy. However, if any of these signs occur and are repeated continuously, it is best to immediately visit a doctor:
Very sharp and severe pain in the pelvis
Fainting and dizziness
Don’t ignore these symptoms and ask for medical assistance as soon as possible to prevent it from getting bigger.
