A septated ovarian cyst is a combination of solid and liquid substances. Even though most cysts are harmless, septated cysts can grow to be quite hazardous to the sufferer’s health. This is because they have been known to become very uncomfortable and cause lots of abdominal pain.
Fortunately, if you have regular check up’s with your doctor, they should be able to discover the presence of a septated ovarian cyst quite easily, especially if you inform them that you are suffering from abdominal discomfort and pain.
There are various forms of septated ovarian cysts that cause the symptom of abdominal discomfort. The most common of these are:
- Dermoid cysts
The first of these, Dermoid cysts, are formed in the eggs in the ovaries. With this form of septated ovarian cyst, the cyst can resemble the form of a foetus, depending on size. However, this form of cyst is not cancerous.
The second type of cyst actually develops in on the outside of the uterus. It is often known as a Endometrionoma cyst because of its location. Unfortunately it’s also this location that makes this cyst one of the most dangerous of the septated ovarian cysts. Please make sure you get this treated as a matter of urgency if your doctor informs you that you have this type of cyst as it is known to cause other health issues if left untreated.
Cystadenomas, the third type of cyst that we will discuss in this article is made up of liquid and mucus. These grow to a larger size than the other previously mentioned types of cysts due to their predominantly liquid contents. This larger size of the cyst often leads to more extreme and concentrated pain than the other two types of cysts.
I am also glad to say that this septated ovarian cyst is not often cancerous and can be successfully treated by natural means including but not limited to
- increasing fiber and water intake,
- herbs and
- following certain diets
Unfortunately, no-one has yet discovered what causes these three forms of septated ovarian cysts to occur. Some commentators have highlighted some factors which they think could contribute to developing these cysts, such as genetic make up, having a weakened immune system and being overweight.
According to the established knowledge in the medical profession surgery is the best treatment to have as this ensures that the cyst can be fully removed. And to some extent, this may be true depending on the size and the type of cyst.
It is worth remembering that the traditional medical treatments for these cysts comprise of just tackling the symptoms and not necessarily ensuring that the septated ovarian cyst does not return.
And it is to fill this gap in the traditional medical approach to the treatment of ovarian cysts that alternative and very efficient treatments have developed in recent years.
One of these alternative known as the holistic system of treatment focuses on treating septated ovarian cysts by first understanding cause of the malfunction in the body of the individual and then considering natural changes to the individual’s life that will discourage the formation of further cysts in future.
