Women of the reproductive age and those between the age of 50-70 are prone to it. The cysts are usually tiny and they do not cause any symptoms. However, there might be swelling or intense pain in the lower abdomen where the cyst might have formed. The pain may be intense or dull. It is usually irregular.
Women may experience:
- Pain on one side of the lower abdomen
