Ovarian Cystectomy

 
Tumours growing on the ovary tend to be cystic, i.e., they have an external membrane and are full of fluid. Malignant cysts require the removal of the whole ovary and most times the uterus and the other ovary. Benign cysts on the other hand, can be removed by themselves thus preserving the ovary.
 
This is the most desired option in young women who have not reached menopause and need the hormones produced by the ovaries.
 
An incision is made on the ovary, the cyst is dissected and removed and the remaining ovary is sutured if required. After healing, the ovary goes back to its normal size and aspect.
