Ovaries naturally produce cysts each month as a normal part of ovulation. However, sometimes these cysts grow larger or multiple cysts remain that can be signs of underlying imbalances.
When ovarian cysts burst they can sometimes cause acute, severe pain. Other times the presence of ovarian cysts may be a sign of a larger syndrome called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Most ovarian cysts are benign, but some may be a sign of ovarian cancer. If you suspect ovarian cysts you should be examined by a gynecologist to get an accurate diagnosis.
