Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on an ovary. Functional cysts form during ovulation and aren’t cancerous. This type accounts for most ovarian cysts. Usually, the cysts are small and unnoticeable unless you have symptoms.
Ovarian cysts need emergency treatment if they rupture. A ruptured ovarian cyst can cause heavy bleeding, which can be internal. For care from a team of board certified emergency providers, call 911 or come to Goshen Hospital Emergency Department. We treat ovarian cysts in Goshen, IN, at 200 High Park Ave.
