What Is Ovarian Cyst?

Ovary is the female reproductive part, whereas ovarian cyst is referred to the fluid or liquid which is collected in the ovary. This fluid is covered in a thin layer. These ovarian cysts can be of different sizes. They can be as small as a pea and as large as an orange. Ovarian cysts are usually harmless and can develop in women of any age. Usually surgery for ovarian cysts is done to women during childbirth.

What is Ovarian Cancer?

Ovarian cancer begins in the ovaries. Women have 2 ovaries, one on each side of the uterus in the pelvis, as shown in the picture below. The ovaries produce eggs (called ova). They are also the main source of a woman’s female hormones, estrogen and progesterone. The eggs travel through the fallopian tubes to the uterus. Here they may be fertilized and develop into a fetus.

Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer symptoms are often vague. Women and their doctors often blame the symptoms on other, more common conditions. By the time the cancer is diagnosed, the tumor has often spread beyond the ovaries.

See your doctor if you have the following symptoms on a daily basis for more than a few weeks:

  •     Bloating or swollen belly area
  •     Difficulty eating or feeling full quickly (early satiety)
  •     Pelvic or lower abdominal pain; the area may feel “heavy” (pelvic heaviness)
