Ovarian cysts and laparoscopic Ovarian cystectomy

Ovarian cysts are of different variety,

There are some,which are called functional cysts,which body produces and dissolves it.One doesn't need to get operated for it.A follow up scan after 6 weeks is recommended.

The second type is non cancerous non functional benign ovarian cyst.Which won't get absorbed,neither is cancerous and would not get corrected unless operated by key hole surgery.If too big even laparotomy might be needed.

Then the third and most sinister type.Cancerous.As per the protocol I perform a staging laparotomy or send for chemotheraphy first as considered appropriate in the tumor board meeting.

Diseases are a part of life.No point trying to deny them.It is better to understand them so that one can either prevent it and for a non preventable condition llike ovarian cyst to identify it as soon as possible and currect it
