collapsed ovarian cyst

Please could anyone tell me what a COLLAPSED OVARIAN CYST IS?

I have had a cyst on one of my ovaries and went for a scan to be told that it looks like its collapsed but there is plenty of fluid around my ovary. Should i be worried about this? the sonographer just said that if the doctor needed me they would be in touch.

It sounds like you ovulated, the hole left behind by the egg filled with fluid (making a cyst), and then at some point it drained.  No big deal in almost any scenario.  The problems start when the cyst doesn't drain, not when it does.
