Looking for a COVID-19 test?

CareClues partner hospitals and clinics have been approved by ICMR to conduct COVID-19 RT-PCR test.

My doctor diagnosed me with large ovarian cyst and gave recommendations for treatment. He told me it is nothing to worry about, and treatment is so easy it can even be done at home. So I was wondering what possible home treatments are available for curing this problem?

Home treatments are unable to make a cyst disappear completely. They are geared more towards treating symptoms and managing pain. That being said, some effective strategies for large ovarian cyst include over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen and other NSAIDs; regular stretching and exercise; massage of the thighs, stomach, lower back, and buttocks; relaxation techniques for reducing anxiety and stress; heat; weight loss, and dietary changes. All the while, the patient’s doctor must keep a close eye on changes occurring in the tumor.
