What is the most appropriate management for ovarian cysts?
Management of ovarian cysts should be done carefully so as to avoid any subsequent effects. In general, cysts can be managed medically with birth control pills or medicines that affect the pituitary gland. If a patient is found to have an ovarian cyst when she is being evaluated for a tubal reversal surgery, the cysts can be removed during the tubal reversal surgery. If the patient is not being evaluated for a tubal reversal surgery, and surgery is not an option, all medical treatments should be exhausted before surgery is considered. (more…)
