This is a laparoscopic removal of dermoid cysts from both ovaries. The ovaries are incised with cautery to minimize bleeding then the dermoids are shelled or teased out. After that is accomplished they are placed in a plastic bag and removed from the body. This way a larger incision is avoided. Dermoids are a type of cyst which does not respond to medical or alternative treatment. They can be slow growing but eventually need to be removed surgically. If these leak they can cause severe scarring and ruin fertility as well as cause severe pain.

Histopathology Ovary--Dermoid cyst:  What the pathologist sees under a microscope when looking at a dermoid cyst, otherwise known as a dermoid or benign cystic teratoma.  The pathologist explains that he is seeing skin, fat, bone and other tissues commonly seen in these "little monsters" of the ovary.

These are cysts which require surgery and cannot be cured using mainstream or alternative medical treatment.  However, the surgery can be a cystectomy, which means that the ovary is preserved.  It can also be done through a laparoscope, which means no large incision.

A pathologist reviews what a normal ovary looks like under a microscope, including egg follicles in various stages of development. In other words, how the eggs in the ovary develop and how their supporting cells look like as well as how very early normal follicular cysts develop.  These follicular cysts come and go every month as you go through normal hormonal cycles.  If they don't, they grow into functional or physiologic cysts which usually still go away on their own within 4-8 weeks.  They go away by leaking or rupturing.

Histopathology Ovary--Normal-corpus luteum: A pathologist reviews what the normal ovary looks like and what a Corpus Luteum cyst looks like under the microscope.  The Corpus Luteum is a "functional" or "physiologic" cyst which comes and goes under certain circumstances.  These are amenable to natural therapies, but it is important to be careful because these can lead to severe internal bleeding. There are ways to minimize this, and you should certainly stay away from aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E and anything else that can thin your blood and cause more bleeding.
