If you experience pain in your lower back and thighs much before the expected date of periods, then do not overlook this problem. Painkillers may not provide relief. The pain may actually get worse at times. You may be suffering from an ovarian cyst. Ovarian cysts have to be treated properly. Some types of cysts may become fatal if not treated on time.
Here are some common treatment methods used to treat ovarian cysts:
1) You may be prescribed birth control pills for this problem. However these pills will provide only temporary relief. The worst part is that these pills actually mask the symptoms rather then working on the root cause. And the ovarian cyst keeps growing without you realizing it because the drugs have masked them symptoms.
2) Another approach taken by doctors to treat ovarian cysts involves removing the cyst by surgery. This may or may not work, depending on the type of cyst. Some times the cyst may grow again.
3) Another surgical method that is adopted to treat ovarian cysts is removal of entire ovary or uterus to solve this problem. This may provide relief from the problem. The downside of this method is it prevents you from having children in the future.
Doctors use all these methods frequently. But remember that these cysts indicate a problem inside the body. A surgical removal may get rid of this problem but it does not solve the actual problem within the body.
Another way to treat this problem and the overall system may be the natural holistic treatment. Consult your doctor and if your cyst is not of the critical type, you should look at treating this problem naturally.
