Ovarian cysts can be drained, the procedure is very straightforward, simply removing the fluid for the ovarian cysts. Unfortunately, the cyst often comes back with re-accumulation of the fluid. It's often better to remove the cyst to prevent it recurring and in extreme cases, the ovary can be removed. These procedures are usually carried out laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) often as a day-case procedure but at most an overnight stay with rapid return to normal activities.

Hello, yes it's almost invariably possible to remove a cyst/ovary laparoscopically. However , we don't generally recommend cyst drainage/aspiration to treat ovarian cysts.
