Do ovarian cysts require surgical removal?

By Silvia Azaña Gutiérrez.
Last Update: 11/03/2021

No, not all ovarian cysts require surgery. There are ovarian cysts that will disappear by themselves in a few months, without the need for any treatment.

However, the specialist may opt for surgical intervention depending on the type and size of the ovarian cyst, the symptomatology it is producing, and the woman's age.
