Ovarian cyst – Diagnostics

Thorough diagnostics is carried out before treatment in Germany. Basic methods of ovarian cysts diagnostics are:

  • Ultrasound examination allows to detect even the small tumor-like formation in the ovary. Doctors can assume the type of cyst due to certain criteria, but to confirm it they have to perform the histological examination.
  • Laparoscopy is a surgical method of diagnostics and treatment that is associated with instrumental intervention into the pelvic cavity. Laparoscopy helps to remove the cyst if necessary, but also to take the biological material for morphological analysis. It allows doctor to determine what type of cyst a patient has and differentiate it from the malignant oncological process.

Ovarian cyst – Treatment

Follicular and luteal (the corpus luteum) cysts belong to so called functional ones. They are treated conservatively. Doctors prescribe medicines and a patient stays under the control of a physician. Those cysts usually disappear by themselves.

Surgery is rarely needed. Indications for the surgery are:

  • Suspicion of the oncological process
  • Diameter of the cyst is more than 6 cm
  • Cyst doesn’t disappear within 6 months
  • Cyst is accompanied by the certain clinical symptoms

Even small sized dermoid, endometrial, and mucinous ovarian cysts require surgery. They have the risk of malignancy (malignant transformation), and they are often accompanied by complications. Treatment in Germany is aimed at avoiding minimal risks.
