Can an ovarian cyst be dangerous?
In more than 90 percent of cases, ovarian cysts are not a cause for concern and will heal on their own without therapy. And even if they generally don’t cause discomfort or complications, there are also exceptions here:
Cyst explosion in the ovary: what are the risks?
This can be done, for example, during a tactile exam or without a trigger, it is extremely painful, but also harmless. It only becomes dangerous when the surrounding vessels have been injured and bleeding occurs in the abdomen. Then an operation must be performed immediately.

A large cyst on the ovary is sometimes attached to it by a vascular pedicle. Sudden movements can cause the stem to twist and cut off the blood supply to the ovary. The result: severe pain, sweating, and nausea. Here an operation must be performed.
