WHY DOES ONE GET OVARIAN CYSTS WHEN A WOMEN IS IN MENOPAUSE?
It is possible to get ovarian cysts in menopause. The benign ones are usually simple cysts that are quite small, simple and do not grow. A simple cyst has the appearance of a water balloon. A complex cyst may have blood or solid components that are more concerning. Complex cysts and cysts that continue to grow should be removed.
