Diagnosis

An ovarian cyst is often found during a routine pelvic exam. Other tests may be required to confirm the diagnosis. These tests usually include a pelvic ultrasound, a laparoscopy and some blood tests. Some of these tests provide further information about the cyst that is helpful in planning treatment. Some may be used only if there is a high risk of problems.

Pelvic Ultrasound
This examination apart from confirming the clinical suspicion will also provide useful information about the size and the nature of the cyst.

Blood Tests
These tests can investigate for the presence of some substances in the woman’s blood that are found often when cancer may be present. One such test measures CA 125, which may be used to detect a risk for ovarian cancer.

Laparoscopy
​With this surgical procedure it is possible apart from seeing the cyst directly inside the woman’s body it is also possible to remove it at the same time.
