Chocolate cyst (endometrium, endometioid cyst, endometrial cyst caused by endometriosis) caused by when a small amount of endometrial tissue begins to bleed, falls off the uterine wall and lodges inside the ovaries and begins to grow. It is called a chocolate cyst because of the blood build up (sometimes over years) which turns brown. If it ruptures, the material that was inside the cyst can spill over into the pelvis and onto the surface of the uterus, bladder and bowel. Treatment - can be either surgical or by medicine. If the patient has a lot of pain in the pelvic area, then often a physician will Recomentensaid drugs (non- steroidal anti-inflammatories, like Advil), unless the patient has been definitively diagnosed as having endometriosis.
