In medical definition, ovarian cysts are small sacs filled with fluid that reside on the surface of a woman’s one or both ovaries. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that majority of the women in the premenstrual stage have these cysts at some point of their lives, while above 14.8% of women have them after their postmenstrual stage.
