Hi. I have multiple cysts on my left ovary that are little over 2cm and causing pain in my groin,lower back and leg. I have had a hysterectomy and removal of my right ovary 5yrs ago. I am 41yrs old and menopausal. I can't focus and in constant pain along with suffering from incontinence due to this enlarged cystic ovary I also suffer from IBS(irritable bowel syndrome). Should I just ask the doctor to remove my remaining ovary to end this suffering?
My 1/2 sister died of breat cancer at the age of 31, 10 years ago. Does leg pain go with the cysts or cancer? Does anyone know? I keep asking what is causing this pain. The drs. aren't sure. Any help would be great.
For the past year, ive suffered with sharp shooting pains in my pelvis, and a sciatic like pain down my left buttock and leg. I frequently get pains in my lower back, and it always seem very tender and sore. My doctor told me i had sciatica in my left leg, and that it would go after 3 or 4 weeks on its own, but it hasnt, and im starting to think my symptoms are maybe that of a cyst/cysts on my ovary.
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.
There is no adequate screening testing for ovarian cancer. The single effective intervention in the prevention of ovarian cancer is to remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes. You should discuss this with your doctor. I hope everything works out.
I started to get my period almost every 10 days, give or take a couple and it lasts longer than usual. I have low back pain, leg and hip pain, and groin pain in my left groin. I am bloated and I get fairly bad abdominal pain and/or indigestion. I also have been going between diarrhea and constipation. And I have to urinate a lot. I've also been having a little shortness of breath, which seems to show up after I have eaten an then feel more bloated than before I have eaten.
My doctor used an ultra-sound to check the placement of the IUD and all was fine. However, she discovered that I had multiple cysts. She perscribed pain medications, and sent me on my way. My question is how long are they supposed to last? It is now mid-May and I still get the same severe pain. It shoots down my left leg, (sometimes the right) and across my back. It of course is in my lower abs, and makes me completely useless. It's daily.

I've been having problems such as severe pain at times, presusre, bloating and frequent urinating since July. I get back pain and pain down left leg now. I couldn't understand what was going on because the pain was always on my left side, never on right. I thought I was nuts. I have a dermoid cyst. The size is negotiable - gyn says 2x2cm while ER CT says 4x4cm. Dr says she'll remove it for it seems it is causing me many problems so. God bless... Hope you are better now.
These symptoms could be ovarian cyst , very similar to what i have had , the hip pain in the leg lower back pain, bloating, stabbing. Have you been to your doctor yet? Go to your doctor and ask for a scan. These cyst can cause horrible painfull symptoms so get it sorted.
can my leg pain come from the ovarian cysts pressing on nerves in my pelvic region???
She has been admitted to hospital, 6 times since last Nov, in pain that radiates down her leg, but they really just don't believe her most of the time and she has seen some awful doctors who bedside manner is really not very good at all, because shes a bigger than average 14 year old, they assume she is an adult. She has missed at least two months of school so far, either in hospital having had surgery or in pain. I just don't know what to do now! Please help.
Hi, As someone who lives with chronic pain from a failed back surgery from an L5,S1 micodisectomy and constant nerve pain in my back and right hip and leg, I understand how confusing this all can get. I have a 5cm cyst on my left ovary that has been around for a while and now it's coming out in July because it should have shrunk when I went into menopause and it didn't. The surgeon is pretty sure it's benign but can't give me a definite answer till the biopsy when it's done.
Lately they have been rupturing every 3 months or so. I do have leg pain abdominal pain and back pain. The pain does come and go even though the cyst is still there. The leg pain is at its worse when using the bathroom(#2) not to be gross or anything. I found it odd but cysts can cause pain in places seemingly unrelated. Hope this helps and makes you feel less alone.
The article that I was reading also stated that these cysts usually resolve themselves within 2-3 months and are monitored with ultrasound. Leg and back pain is very common with cysts , I had those symptoms myself .
For so many months, I have a major unexplained weight loss, nausea, vomiting, constipation, major lower back pain, pain on the right sided back (ovary area), pain on leg, fatigue, some time I have constipation and a lot blood in stool, I also have pain during intercourse. I am a single mother, 40 years old, having 3 small kids. My doctor told me to wait for 5 weeks to do another ultrasound and see how big the cysts will grow before he decides to remove it. Could this be an ovarian cancer?
I had the very same pain! This type of pain seems to be common with ovarian cysts. Although small, they can press on nerves causing pain. I see you are on the watch and wait. I suggest that you seek a 2nd opinion with a gyn/onc. Not because of cancer, but because they are specialists in the female reproductive area and have seen it all. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
6cm within the same month. Having vaginal bleeding,abdominal pain and lower back and leg pain. Have been put on med. for pain. Have a history of very bad periods. Having a hard time getting info on complex ovarian cysts. What are the risks of COC? Can they be early signs of cancer?
She feels that is wrong decision but is leaving it up to me to decide which waiting list i go on, i decide in just over a week. This week the pain is getting worse,shoulder tip, pain in back, pain down leg, pain over abdomen and pinching pains on right side, surely if it ruptured 4 days ago the fluid would be leaving by now, not had it so bad before. Any ideas, or advice?
About 3 months ago, I went to my OBGYN because I was having a lot of ovarian type pain mostly on my right side, along with the leg pain. She did a transvaginal ultrasound and said that there were two very small cysts, one on each ovary. I was surprised, because I am breastfeeding and have not resumed my menstrual cycle yet. Anyhow, she sent me to a neurologist who ran some tests, including a MRI to look for a slipped disc or pinched nerve in my back......nothing.
My stomache is severly bloated also. I've had ovarian cysts before and they ruptured but this pain won't go away. Its had me curled up in a ball for about 6-7 hours now. Is it a possibility that it was just a huge cyst that ruptured?
I now have had at least 4 ovarian cysts in the last year. In January I had one on each side, and I'm waiting to go in for an ultrasound in a few more weeks to see if they are still there, or if I'm currently experiencing symptoms for a new one, (I was feeling great in February). I also have a new Dr. cause my old dr just shrugged off my concerns, and this last time only told me I had one, and saying it was no big deal. I actually found out I had 2 and one was complex.
I now understand not to get a biopsy from what I have read. I am having some pain in my leg as well. Any idea on the percentage of complex cysts being cancerous in women that are pre-menopausal? I am 40. Based on family history, I would not hit menopause until early 50s. Is a dermoid a cancerous complex cyst? I am also going to ask for the blood test and it sounds like an MRI might also be a good idea.
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.
This will give them a good view of your ovary and any cysts that you may have. Please rest assured that ovarian cysts and cancer have most of the same symptoms. 95% of ovarian cysts are non cancerous. It is common to have pain during exercise, sex, and sitting for long periods of time when you have an ovarian cyst. Please keep us updated on how you are doing.
I try to pull my leg up so I can lay in the fetal position, but the pain on my left side radiates down my leg and i literally have to pull my leg up with my arms. The pain subsides at times then it will act up again for no reason. It is distressing to me and I don't know what else to do as far as stressing to my doctors that I do have this pain and they don't seem to be concerned. What type of test can you reccomment I get to rule out cancer.
I have tried looking up ovarian pain on google, but it keeps brining up cysts, or ovarian cancer, i don't think I have either, but this pain is annoying, so any reccomendations on what to take to stop the pain. I went in last month for a pap smear, and they didn't feel any cysts on my ovaries at all!! So please help!!!
