Does an Ovarian Cyst Mean Cancer?

Ovarian cysts, fluid trapped in sacs that are attached to your ovaries, for the most part are harmless and quite common for women during their childbearing years. Ovarian cysts can range in size from a pea to an orange. Yet for some, these cysts can speak to something more serious, such as ovarian cancer, pelvic disease and endometriosis.
