ovarian-cysts

I have pain on my right side (upper and lower abdomen) and horrible pain in my back and right leg. I am worried that the cysts might be getting bigger, or there is something else wrong like appendix, gallbladder,etc. Any incite would be greatly appreciated.
If you are found to have ovarian cancer and your tumor makes this tumor marker, then it can be valuable tool for your follow-up. Here are a couple of links that will give you more information: http://oreilly.com/medical/news/ovarian_ten_things.html http://www.wcn.org/findadoctor/ I hope all turns out to be benign! You should get surgery as soon as possible because your mass is so large.
I was yoldn in have chocolate cysts on my ovaries. I've tried the nuvaring as means to shrink the cysts and I was feeling better. I've had pain on my right side, pain under my belly button, gas, bloated, constipation, back pain, heavy periods,tenderness near my c section cut and severe gas and gas pains can't have a bowel movement w/a laxative I feel so uncomfortable. Just been miserable.
i had a burning in mt stomach which the doctor said may or may not be gallbladder related and after a few days went away..he decided to do a sonogram on the gallbladder and thats when they noticed the stones. I know a few people who have had gallbladder attacks and they are extremely painful I think it starts with more shoulder and back pain and vomitting. maybe you should ask your doctor to just rule out any gallbladder problems with an sonogram. By the way whats going on with you..
I'm not a Dr so I can't answer your question,but I feel your doing what you need to have done by going to see your gyn.
My doctors OBGYN and Medical Oncologist both say Tamoxifen does not cause cysts but I have read many articles saying there is a high percentage and correlation of ovarian cysts in premenpausal women. It appears to be recent studies in the last few years. Are my doctors just not keeping up with readings or are these journals on the internet not accurate? What is the Cleveland Clinics view on this topic. I am trying to decide whether I should stop taking Tamoxifen or not.
Had abdominal CT scan in August (to check liver) and was told that I have fatty liver and ovarian cysts (minor notation on report). Side pain has gotten worse and enzymes still elevated. Had second abdominal CT scan to get a better look at liver and pancreas. Was told everything looked okay (still have fatty liver) but the ovarian cysts have grown.
cancer tests, gallbladder tests, countless ultrasounds and MRIs and CTs, you name it. what brought me to this site was what ive been experiencing this past week. i've had seriously intense pain in my right lower abdomen and extra heavy bleeding with my period. ive lived with a heating pad on my lower abdomen for a whole week now, and have had diarrhea, nausea and deep pressure on my lower right side for the past 3 days.
The past two weeks I have had a strange brownish/red discharge (like the blood that comes out at the very end of your period) and some blood clots each time I go to the bathroom. I have been reading up on the symptoms of ovarian cancer and ovarian cysts, and although many of my symptoms were related to gallbladder issues, I also have read that ovarian cancer is sometimes mistaken for other digestive problems.
Would they be visible on an ultrasound? Do the cysts come and go? Or from the ultrasound can I rule out PCOS and focus on other possibilities? I wonder if I have Cushing's syndrome, as I also have what I think is a buffalo hump and my face may be moon-shaped.
I just had the same issue.They told me that there was still a small amount of ovary adhered to the lining of my inside. When they pulled blood and took hormone levels it showed still producing enough to cause a regrowth. This produced enough hormone to generate a new cyst, being the size of a walnut between my kidney and intestine causing severe pain and nausea. I just came home from the hospital yesterday and am awaiting results from the biopsy.
I don't know what else to do, but I'm very worried. There is a family history of reproductive cancers and ovarian cysts requiring removal of an ovary or full hysterectomy. I would like to have children one day. Should I go back to the ER and demand immediate attention, or stick it out until 3/25 and hope it doesn't get worse before then?
After he only ordered an abdominal ultrasound instead of including a pelvic one they found gallstones, fortunately for me the doctor who performed my ultrasound went against my family doctor's prescription and checked below and saw the cysts and sent him back the results, you should of seen my doctor's expression. Had the other doctor not looked further god only knows what would of happened.
they are going to take the gallbladder out laproscopically and the ovarian cysts will be taken out with vertical incision immediatley following. Has anyone every heard of anything like this? i am a wreck as it is and have now been hit with a double wammy...i can't understand this. I guess it is better to get it over with and done with already as most of you know that this has been going on since january. my anxiety is way up there!!!! I am so worked up..
After suffering with severe lower left abdominal / pelvic pain, constant nausea and vomiting, I finally made myself go to the doctor last week. She thought my gallbladder was acting up, so ordered blood work and abdominal CT scan. The blood work came back fine, but CT results showed a cyst on my left ovary. She prescribed Zofram for the nausea, and another medicine for the stomachs spasms; told me to follow- up in 6-10 weeks.
I got to add the ultrasound and transvag ultrasound to the list every 3 months because of the ca125 and cysts and fibroid. In May of '06 I had my gallbladder removed because it was not functioning. Before that had to have a heart work-up due to family history before surgery would be done.That still did not stop the pains.I also had a liver test. I then had a colonoscopy. Although I have spots in my liver and lung, they are stable and haven't grown in over 15 months.
I have had attacks off and on for several years, but they increased during the last year. The past 4 months have been very difficult for me. I live on a bland, fat free diet. I find that certain fruits and vegetables bother me as well. There have been no stones on the ultra sound, and the HIDA scan came back at a low-normal level of functioning. I also had a CAT SCAN that was normal. I am scheduled for gallbladder surgery on the 24th.

Based on the cancer cells in my abdominal fluid, a biopsy, my CT scan and a chest xray I had the doctor says I definitely have ovarian cancer and that it likely stage 4. This was the first doctor that I have seen through all of this who I felt was actually supportive and willing to answer any questions I had. He took a lot of time with me and I didn't feel rushed like he was in a hurry to see the next patient.
I have posted on here before for ovarian cysts and I haven't been having any stomach pain at all from them, so I'm asuming they arent coming back. But I just thinking about it and I started getting pain, mostly on my right side. It's the same pain I had before when I had ovarian cysts, but the sight of pain is where your gallbladder is. I did research on gallbladder symptoms, and the pain isn't anywhere near severe enough to be stones, or anything that was listed.
and doctors who, all say that life would be easier, and less Tiring, without the Ovaries, which have often, almost ruptured because of all the different bening tumours, they have had, on them. So many of us have Ovarian Cysts and except for those who have heavy pain & bleeding - some people, do not even realise, they have had these problems.
(Has gall stones but nuclear scan ruled out gallbladder) Heart disease and age (87) preclude surgery. Tried to do a needle biopsy of cyst and failed. Now has pain in lower right quadrant where bioposy was done (8 days ago)??? Largest problem is servere abdominal distention upon eating almost anything. The bloating began several years ago in "bouts" or attacks....increased over last year such that she is on liquids. CT showed no ascites.
Mine was so painful because it was twisting with my ovary, so I had to have it removed that day, along with, unfortunately, the ovary it was entangled with. As far as cancer goes, most ovarian cysts are benign. And since you are so young, your odds are especially high that they aren't cancerous (the risk of cancerous cysts increases with age, particularly with women who have gone through menopause already).
So finally I got into get an ultrasound. My liver and gallbladder are fine, but I have a cyst on my left ovary. It measures 32mm across and 29 laterally. Im just wondering if this is common for someone after giving birth?
I have suspected endometriosis, uterine fibroid and large complex ovarian cysts. My period also goes for 7-8 days and I have a bit of bleeding days before my period is due. Sometimes I feel like I bleed more often than not!
will NOT accept that I had these symptons way after I had the scans and I ve told them that scans don't always show OC or cysts and I have the symptons eg never feeling hungry and always feeling full and they don't ackjnowledge the fact taht altho my tummy is getting bigger I ahve lost weight elsewhere,i have had a cough since October and rib pain fro over a year all which caused by tumour or cyst.
well I am 26 and I just found out 3 days ago I have a 3cm cyst on my ovary to I have real bad stomach pains in my stomach and a lot under my right rib cage and back they referred me to a gallbladder surgen to do a ultrasound of my gallbladder to
Gynecological conditions like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and uterine cysts or polyps, can also bring about alteration in menstrual cycle. Even sickness and stress associated with it can delay periods. However, pregnancy is still the most common cause of delayed or missed period. So if there is a history of any unprotected intercourse then pregnancy should be ruled out.
They feel terrible. Most ovarian cysts are benign. But Ovarian Cancer can't be readily checked with a mammogragm, a papsmer, or and endometrial biopsy. I thought as long as all those were clear I was Cancer free. I had symptoms and they missed it. I bleed for two years straight even after a uterine ablation, then I started throwing up all the time. It got fewer and fewer things. I had extreme pain in the Ovaries. They took my gallbladder out and the pain was still there.
Interesting... I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts many years ago, and they put me on the pill for it (and I'm still on it)... Thanks, I'll make a point to mentioning it to my doctor next time I see him.
