Almost all the women certainly have heard of the cyst. But few who know what is a cyst? Why women affected vulnerable cyst? If the cyst is it dangerous? And to answer all of the questions, here the 10 type of cysts in women to be wary and need to know.
A CYST is an abnormal SAC containing abnormal fluid that grows not only in the reproductive organs, but it can also grow on the skin, the lungs, and also the brain.
Why are women prone to the cysts?
80% of women potentially affected by cysts.
Most of the cysts grow in the ovaries, while only women who had ovaries, men do not.
Women have two ovaries, on the left and right, who have thousands of eggs that were young called the follicle. Every month, among the many follicles there is one who grows, mature, and then removed from the shell (called ovulation) and pull out the core egg fertilized and ready to produce a pregnancy. When the egg is not fertilized, then the follicle will shrink and disappear within 2-3 weeks, and will continue to be repeated the menstrual cycle in women. But, if there is an interruption in the process this cycle, then it will happen what is called a cyst.
If the cyst is it dangerous?
The cyst is benign tumors, which wrapped up by some sort of membrane tissue that is often found in a woman's reproductive organs. The form cystic, containing a viscous fluid, and there is also the form of wine. There is also a cyst which contains air, fluid, pus or other substances, such as hair, teeth or bones.
The Cyst is divided into two kinds according to nature and malignancies, i.e., Anti-neoplastic activities and Non-anti-neoplastic activities.
Non-anti-neoplastic activities, namely the type of cyst which is benign, and usually will deflate itself after 2-3 months. Anti-neoplastic activities is a type of cyst which generally should be operated on, but depending on the size and nature. The cyst may grow, and can continue into cancer.
Someone who was diagnosed with cysts usually was around 20-30 years old, where the menstrual cycle was in the peak of health. And the risk of these cysts will decrease while women are entering the age of menopause.
There are 10 kinds of cysts that need to be controlled by all the women
1. Serosum Cysts
The cyst contains the clear liquid form and the color is like water juice of turmeric. If nested on the ovaries, then this cyst to break easily which can cause great pain. This type of cyst also often turns into a malignant cyst, called ovarian cancer.
Serosum cyst enlargement process is strongly affected by the menstrual cycle. Since the time of menstruation, the addition of the amount of liquid in the ovaries. Serosum also has a cyst look like a yellow body (corpus luteum).
This cyst may grow in the pregnancy, because the estrogen in pregnant women will increase, thus cyst growth spur serosum. After ovulation and pregnancy occur, the corpus luteum will still exist, because it is in charge of producing the pregnancy hormone progesterone as a buffer. So, on a young, pregnancy can be hard to distinguish between a corpus luteum cyst and serosum.
Typically, pregnancy 14 weeks on the corpus luteum will disappear, because pregnancy buffer already redirects on the HCG hormone. So, at this time was to be seen the presence of the cyst, if there is still an enlarged pouch, it could just be that is a serosum cyst.
A Cyst that grows progressively enlarges during pregnancy, will certainly urge the fetus and disrupt fetal growth, thus cyst should be removed.
2. Cyst Musinosum
These cysts contain fluid in the form of mucus thick and sticky mucus resembles, but the nature of the attachment to resembles a glue. Just like cyst serosum, cyst musinosum also be enlarged during pregnancy and should be done by appointment. The cyst will be progressively enlarged and can rupture. This condition would be very dangerous, because it will cause adhesions in the organs in the abdominal cavity, and the cyst will be more difficult to removed.
3. Ovarian Cyst
This cyst can change into ovarian cancer, which is the largest cause of death of all gynecologic cancers. The highest death rate is because they came when already advanced stage. So, this disease is also called "silent killer".
An ovarian cyst is usually associated with women who have a low fertility rate or infertile, also on those who gave birth the first time at the age of 35 years or above, as well as women who have a family history of ovarian cancer, breast cancer, or colon cancer.
4. Functional Cyst
A functional cyst (follicular cyst) occurs as a result to the ovarian could not release the egg during ovulation, even increasingly growing that eventually turns into a cyst. The process did not rupture the egg this could be due to malfunctioning of the hormone. These cysts are usually benign, and will disappear by itself between 2-3 cycles. Functional cyst also one type of ovarian cyst, but usually not dangerous.
5. Corpus Luteum Cyst
Corpus luteum cyst occurs when ovulation and usually will disappear if the pregnancy does not occur. However, the corpus luteum can grow up to 10 centimeters and potential to bleed and exhorting the ovaries, it will cause pain in pelvis and abdomen. If the cyst rupture, would cause internal bleeding and sharp pain suddenly. Corpus luteum cyst is still part of ovarian cyst because it grows in the ovary.
6. Dermoid Cyst
This cyst also grows on the ovary, containing a variety of tissues, could be hair, teeth, nails, skin, or other. These cysts can occur at the age of one's childhood. Perhaps, it formed from inside the mother's womb. But these cysts also can enlarge and cause pain.

These cysts are often referred to as the "brown cyst", reddish-brown blood because it contains. Endometriosis also became the cause of women infertility. This disease can cause painful menstruation and painful intercourse.
8. Denoma Cyst
These cysts grow and develop from cells in the outer layer of the surface of the ovary, and it is usually benign in nature. But the Denoma cyst can grow and cause pain.
9. Polycystic Ovary
These cysts occur from small follicles which accumulate and makes the ovary thicken. This disorder is associated with PCOS (polycystic Ovary Syndrome) which is a hormone disorder that results in the follicles are not able to dilate and release the egg. Small follicles are appear in great numbers. The ovaries will be thick and disrupt the process of ovulation, it could be the cause of women infertility.
10. Pathologist Cyst
These cysts are benign tumors that grow in the miss-v. The form can contain liquid, cystic, air, pus, or other, and there is also has a shape like grapes. The group of cells tumor is separated with another normal network, so it cannot be spread to other body parts and relatively easy. However, these cysts can become 2 types of neoplastic and non-neoplastic activities, as has been explained above.
