Types of Ovarian Cysts

There are different types of ovarian cysts, and each type causes a variety of symptoms. All cysts, especially if they are of significant size, can bleed, rupture (burst), and twist and cause pain. Most cysts are benign (not cancerous). A few cysts, though, may turn out to be malignant (cancerous). For this reason, all cysts should be checked by a doctor.
