An ovarian cyst is a fluid-filled sac that may either grow inside your ovaries or on them. They are typically removed by laparoscopy. This procedure involves making small incisions in the abdominal area in order to insert a laparoscope to get a closer view of the cyst and detach it. If the cyst is too large, the gynaecologist may recommend an open surgery or a laparotomy in which a larger cut is made in the lower abdomen. Due to this, the recovery period from a laparotomy will also be longer.
