In women with cyst growth in the ovary, there may be pain in the breast as a result of complication but ovarian cyst does not exhibit pain symptoms for those who are afflicted. However, there are different forms of ovarian cyst and the absence of pain in the area is non-conclusive of the illness. Described hereinbelow are the different types of ovarian cyst.
Women with hemorrhagic cyst experience pain in the area of right and lower abdomen and increased bleeding. This is referred to as haematocyst, or hematoceles which means blood cyst. The formation of this type of cyst is due to breaking of the blood vessels in the circulatory system. The bleeding reaches the ovary and forms a clot. When the blood clot breaks, it finds its way to the abdominal cavity and bleeds out of the body through its openings.
Endometrosis is the primary cause of endometrioid cysts. This occurs when a portion of the endometrial tissue breaks when it bleeds and is attached into another area and grows. This is known as chocolate cyst as the color of the blood is dark brown due to accumulation in the tissue. This medical condition is painful and persistent. When the cyst breaks, there is usually an accompanying severe pain in the area. The bleeding or the fluid as a result of breakage may be deposited in various areas of the body such as the bowels, the uterus, or the pelvis area.
Polycystic ovaries is the term used to describe a condition where there are growth of follicular cysts within the ovaries. Researches are still yet to determine the cause of polycystic ovaries. The growth of cyst does not follow a definite pattern but as the cyst becomes larger, the patient experiences extreme pain. The symptoms vary from patient-to-patient but commonly, there has been a similarity with that of endometriosis or inflammation of the pelvis.
Temporary relief is achieved by application of warm water on the cyst area for the time that there is pain. The vitamins that are taken by the patient may reduce the pain. The complete treatment of ovarian cyst is most recommended by practitioners in order to avoid recurrence or further complication in the future.
