Learn About Ovarian Cyst Treatment and Make an Appointment Today
At Lona Sasser Obstetrics & Gynecology, ovarian cyst treatment is one of the many women’s health services we provide. Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form inside of or on the ovaries. They are very common, especially during the childbearing years, and some of them go away without treatment. However, other cysts–especially ruptured cysts–can cause serious symptoms, and require treatment by a qualified gynecologist. We have three doctors at our office taking new patients: Dr. Lona Sasser and Dr. Mary Squire-De Leon. Our doctors consistently receive top ratings and reviews.

Ovarian Cyst Symptoms
According to the Mayo Clinic, a large ovarian cyst can cause pelvic pain (a sharp or dull ache in the lower abdomen), feelings of abdominal heaviness or fullness, and bloating. If you experience these uncomfortable symptoms, consider seeking ovarian cyst treatment. You should seek medical attention immediately if you experience sudden, severe pelvic or abdominal pain, pain with vomiting or fever, or symptoms of shock (rapid breathing, weakness, lightheadedness, cold clammy skin).
Detecting Ovarian Cysts
One of the best ways to stay on top of pelvic health is to have regular appointments with a trusted gynecologist. Regular Well Woman Exams can ensure that ovarian cysts and other problems are detected early so they can be treated before they develop into more serious problems. These visits are also an opportunity for you to discuss your general health and well being, get tested for STDs, get a breast exam, and more.
If your doctor discovers a cyst on your ovary during a pelvic exam, you can discuss with them whether it is wise to seek ovarian cyst treatment. They may recommend performing an ultrasound, blood test or other type of test to determine what type of cyst you have and whether treatment is advisable. Choose Lona Sasser Obstetrics & Gynecology for your annual Well Woman Exam, ovarian cyst treatment, and all your gynecologic and obstetric health care needs.
Ovarian Cyst Treatment
Depending on the severity of your symptoms and what is revealed by an ultrasound, your doctor may recommend scheduling an appointment for you to be re-examined within a few months, in case the cyst goes away on its own. If you experience recurring cysts, your doctor may recommend hormonal contraceptives, which can help to keep cysts from recurring. Your doctor may suggest surgery to remove a large or painful cyst. In the event of a cancerous cystic mass, your doctor will likely refer you to a gynecologic cancer specialist.
