Ovarian Cysts

What are Ovarian Cysts?

Cysts are fluid filled sacs that develop on the ovaries. They are very common and the vast majority are benign. Perhaps you have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and would like to explore management.


Maybe you have a family history of ovarian or breast cancer and would like a review for reassurance.


Cysts can be symptomless but can also present with pain in the pelvic area, difficulty emptying your bowels, needing to urinate more often, change in your periods, persistent bloating or difficulty getting pregnant.

  • Consultation with one of our female consultant gynaecologists
