Ovarian cysts are liquid filled sacs or pockets in an ovary or on its surface. Women have two ovaries — each about the size and state of an almond — on each side of the uterus. Eggs (ova), which create and develop in the ovaries, are discharged in month to month cycles amid the childbearing years. Numerous women have ovarian growths sooner or later. Most ovarian growths present almost no distress and are safe. The larger part vanishes without treatment inside a couple of months.
