A complex ovarian cyst is a cyst that contains both liquid and solid constituents. More precisely, the solid pasts in a complex ovarian cyst have to make up 50% of the whole cyst.
And as you would expect, it's the solids in the cyst that are most concerning because that could benign or malignant. In 85% of the cases these types of cysts are benign.
Before I carry on, I should make it very clear that the most successful method of removing an existing complex cyst is by surgery. However, as surgery cannot hinder new cysts from forming, this article will try to inform you of natural methods of preventing cysts in future.
If you suspect that you may have an ovarian cyst, then please go and talk to your doctors as only a doctor can confirm either way.
There are 3 very common types of cysts. These are

- Endometrioma: A cyst that grows outside of the uterus. This cysts has been known to cause to ovarian complications.
- Dermoid: This cyst can cause a large amount of pain if it twists on itself, but thankfully it is not a cancerous cyst.
