  • Ovarian Cyst Surgery : If a cyst is causing symptoms and getting bigger, you may need surgery to remove it. The type of surgery depends on the size of the cyst and how it appears on the ultrasound. The different procedures used include:
    • Laparoscopy : This is a procedure where your provider inserts a small camera through a small incision in your abdomen. They view your reproductive organs and pelvic cavity using the device. The ovarian cyst can be removed through tiny incisions (ovarian cystectomy).
    • Laparotomy : Your provider may perform this procedure if the cyst is very large or if there are other concerns.
