An ovarian cyst is a sac full of fluid that develops on a woman’s ovary. Most of the women will develop at least one cyst on their ovaries during their life.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of these cysts is highest at pre-menopause women, while 14.8% of women experience them after the menopause.
In most cases, these cysts are benign by nature and are not considered as dangerous. However, there are pathological cysts which are very dangerous and can even cause cancer.
