An ovarian cyst is a fluid filled sac which develops in an ovary.
An ovarian cyst is not usually apparent to the naked eye, therefore it's hard to detect its presence without doing an x-ray or sonogram.
Historians cite Mary Tudor's barren womb and her possible death by the bursting of an ovarian cyst as another source for her bloody moniker.
