Dr. Payman Banooni discusses ovarian cysts, fluid-filled or solid masses which have formed in the ovaries. Frequently, cysts are benign and many will dissipate on their own. However, some cysts can cause pain and though it is rare, some may be cancerous. Persistent or painful Cysts are typically removed via minimally invasive Laparoscopy. An open abdominal procedure is needed if the cyst is larger or looks cancerous. Learn more about Dr. Banooni's Institute For Fibroid Therapy.
