These ovarian cysts are not related to your normal menstrual cycles. Some of the common ovarian cysts are:
- An endometriotic cysts (endometrioma)
- Dermoid cysts
- Polycystic ovaries
Dermoid cysts and cystadenomas can grow and become large over time. This can cause the ovary to move out of its usual position in the pelvis, increasing the chance of painful twisting of your ovary, called ovarian torsion.
