The fact that you have had 3 cysts in a short period of time has no connection to oiravan cancer, so you should not be overly worried about this. Just keep getting checked by your doctor you will be fine.Doctors do not really have an answer as to why oiravan cysts keep coming back in some women, but I believe that oiravan cysts are really just a symptom of underlying problems in the body. The way to deal with them is not to attack the cyst, but to tackle the underlying problems.You can do this is by adopting a natural holistic approach, covering areas like diet, nutrition, ph balance, and many others.The only way you can ever cure your oiravan cysts is from within by listening to what your body is trying to tell you, work with it and free yourself.There's a good site with more information articles below check it out.Hope this helps, try not to worry too much good luck.
