Ovarian cysts pain on left side

Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts pain on left side


I have this recurring pain on my left side from the narrowest part of my waist to my low abdomen. In December it was really bad and I went to the ER. They did an ultrasound and said the pain was caused by ovarian cysts. That part wasn't surprising because I've had them before, but it surprised me that the pain could radiate so far up my side. Has anyone else had this?
Hi all, I miscarried a baby in November 2007 and whilst i was being examined they found a ovarian cyst on my left and right ovarys. My right hand side cyst went but my left side cyst remained and is still there and i am due to go to the hospital on 25th April to be examined again. However, some days i have the dull ache and pains that i have constantly in my left side appear in my right side but then the pain will go again. I have very bad back ache and i get sharp abdominal pains aswell.
I have a sonogram about 2 years ago because I was having slight pain on my left side. My doctor thought it may be Fibroid tumors. After the sonogram it was discovered that I had 2 simple cysts. The doctor said not to worry about it, that women get cysts and they disappear all the time. I still have mild pain on my left side especially when I am ovulating. Does anyone know what it means to have a simple cyst? Should I be worried? It has already been a couple of years since I was diagnosed.
They do cause pain with bm and sex(i know i had one on my left side)if they are 4-5cm and causing pain they usually remove them. If they are large(5cm +)they can twist which again causes pain. The pins and needles i have no experiance with to connect it to ovarian cysts so you may well have to wait and get a reply from another cyster. Good luck.
12 years ago I had my right ovary removed because the cyst spread over the whole ovary, and 2 years ago it spread to the left ovary, and had that removed.

I had a partial hysterectomy when I was 27 and am now 38 I went to the doctor a week and a half ago in the er because I had massive pain on my left side. They scheduled me to see a surgeon 2 and a half weeks later which is at the end of this week. They said I had a 9cm cyst. I have been on pain pills since leaving the er but the pain is getting worse and my stomach gets larger everyday.
I was stunned to learn the cyst was on the left ovary. It was only during the last few days before my surgery that I began to have pain on my left side.
He first performed an ultra sound that showed a small 3.4 cyst on my left ovary. Please not my right side is the one that is causing such pain. My OB sent me to a GI doctor who said I had IB. the GI then cut wheat, milk, shell fish, and peanut butter out of my diet. Cutting out all that food has not caused my stomach to feel or look any more bloated. My OB also ordered an MRI of lower lumbar to see if there was something wrong with my back. Had MRI on Oct 8, 07. MRI showed a 7.
A couple of months ago I developed severe pain and discovered I had developed 3 cysts on my right ovary - 4.5 cm, 2.8 cm and 3.3 cm and one 4.0 cm on my left. During my followup ultra sound it is discovered that now - not in addition to, have one functional cyst on my left ovary about 15 mm that depics blood tissue as well and one complex cyst on my right ovary that is 15 mm that is suspicous. The doctor has recommended that the ovary be removed. They did a CA125 and the value was 12.
They did see, however, fluid in the cu-de-sac. I am still in pain in my abdomen on the left lower side. Not sure what to do now.
I had an ovarian cyst on left ovary in January, 2010 which prompted her to perform another ultrasound yesterday;it showed the cyst had grown; she also ordered the CA125 blood test; I won't find out anything until Tuesday, March 16, 2010; I missed my period for the first time ever in February, other than during pregnancy; for the past few months I have had unexplained lower back pain and my internist referred me to a spinal specialist.
Well the thing that got me so mad is she (the midwife, i never even heard from the doc, how proffesional) called me and said everything looks fine except a cyst on your right ovary and i told her i was also having pain on the left side, did she see anything on the US for the left said she said NOPE everything looks good. So then i requested they fax me my test results, i look it over and see that on my left ovary i have the complex nodule (2.5cm) so i have my second opinion appointment today.
