Follicular Cyst

A follicular cyst is also called a functional cyst or a benign ovarian cyst. A follicular cyst occurs due to an unruptured egg from the follicle of the ovary during ovulation, and it grows to form a cyst. Follicular cysts can be single or multiple. Follicular cyst gets cured on its own within three months.
