The Debate Over Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Modes of Ovarian Complex Cyst Treatments
- Posted on: May 23 2017
Complex ovarian cyst seems to affect women of all ages and nationalities. Thankfully, ovarian complex cyst treatments, both non-surgical and surgical, have made advances in recent years to give the affected relief from their ailments. But often, a storm is raised over the choice of ovarian complex cyst treatments; surgical vs. non-surgical debates can only be resolved after a careful study of the dynamics of a particular case.Ovarian complex cyst treatments are required when the cysts do not go away on their own, one or two months after appearing. Pre-menopausal women are advised a period of “watchful waiting” where physicians regularly monitor the growth of the cyst. Some women are prescribed birth control pills for a period of 4-6 weeks. These pills stem the formation of ova or eggs, which in turn can inhibit the growth of the cyst. These pills may also work in another way—they decrease the size of the cyst by lessening the size of the follicles. This is one of the most preferred forms of non-surgical ovarian complex cyst treatments. Alternative modes of cyst treatments, like surgical, are usually explored when the cyst does not go away or symptoms of the cyst do not subside after following this course of treatment.Non-surgical methods of ovarian complex cyst treatments are prescribed if the physician feels that there might be cancerous cells harboring within the cyst. Surgery is also recommended in cases where the cyst is larger than 5-10 centimeters and also for post-menopausal women or women who are approaching this stage.There are two forms of surgical ovarian complex cyst treatments—exploratory laparotomy and pelvic laparoscopy. The latter is the most commonly used in treating this condition. The surgery involves making only a minor incision in the abdominal region.Some within the medical field believe that the surgical methods of ovarian complex cyst treatments at the earliest are preferable to ensure that no further complications arise in future. But opinion is still divided on this. If you are seeking treatment for complex ovarian cyst, visit us at Prime Medical in San Pedro, California or call us at 310-548-0201.
