Endometrioid ovarian cyst - what is it like to treat
Currently, female genital diseasessystems associated with the formation of cysts are quite common. Often women simply underestimate the danger of these pathologies and do not hurry with treatment. The situation is aggravated by the fact that a large proportion of doctors believe that if the cyst is not manifested by a pain symptom, then it is not necessary to treat it. However, this is not at all the case.
Perhaps, one of the few diseases, aboutwhich women turn to the doctor, is the endometrioid cyst of the ovary. Most likely the patient is forced to go to a specialist that this pathology is accompanied by pronounced pains.
Many are confined to conductingultrasound diagnosis, after which they prefer to remain a passive observer of cyst growth for many years. And in fact such complications as a twisting of a neoplasm, a suppuration or a rupture are very probable. But the greatest problem is that the ovarian endometrioid cyst as it develops slowly absorbs the healthy tissue of this organ, which not only is responsible for producing the follicles that produce the egg, but also the secretion of a large number of hormones vital for maintaining women's health.
The cyst is a cavity in the ovary tissue. This space is delimited by a thick capsule consisting of two layers. Inside it, usually a liquid with a fine suspension is accumulated. Characteristically, the endometrioid cyst of the ovary resembles the cyst of the yellow body in appearance; therefore, in detecting the disease, it is extremely important to pay special attention to the differential diagnosis of these pathologies, especially when the cyst has an atypical structure.
Because of what there is this disease? The endometrioid cyst of the ovary is formed by a tissue that resembles the endometrium that lines the inner surface of the uterus. On it in normal conditions during fertilization is implanted a zygote. The cyst is formed due to the fact that the eggs, instead of leaving the follicle in the fallopian tubes, again fall into the ovary.
There begins to form an endometrioidA tissue that performs the same functions as the endometrium. During menstruation, this tissue secrete blood, which can not find a way out of the ovary and slowly stretches the cavity inside it. Gradually, the blood condenses, it concentrates iron, which causes its almost black color.
Thus there is an endometrioid cystovary. Symptoms of this disease in many cases are invisible or so insignificant that the woman does not give them due attention. The cyst is usually found by chance during the ultrasound diagnosis of the abdominal cavity.
If there is no growth of the cyst, and its size is notexceed three centimeters, it is considered that this is a non-hazardous for the health endometrioid ovarian cyst. Treatment of larger neoplasms usually involves laparoscopic surgery and removal of the cyst. However, there may be some complications, which, however, are not as dangerous as the risk of excessive development of the neoplasm in the ovary.
