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 had the Depo-Provera contraception injection in january, and since that, my symptoms have become alot worse, and ive suffered with persistent bloating and weight gain. But im still unsure as this could be water retention due to the injection.
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.
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.
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.
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???
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.
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?
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 .
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.
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?
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.
Sorry I don't have any answers, but I'm with you on the recurring cysts. The Gyno and I were convinced that the Mirena IUD was the cause for the recurrent cysts and it was removed during the last laparoscopy in November '11 when the cyst was drained. There was no endometriosis and no PCOS - all went fine for 3 months and the dull/stabbing pain is back since the beginning of the month.
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?
Do complex cysts go away without any type of treatment? Do complex cysts put you at higher risk for ovarian cancer in the future? What causes a complex cyst and how "normal" is it for women to get complex cysts? Also, are dermoids and chocolate cysts what are considered complex ovarian cysts? Are there others? I want to do everything to get it analyzed and removed.... am I being too anxious? Thank you for responding.

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 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!!!
I too am having all the symptoms as noted. My pap test came back normal but the doc did tell me that my uterus was very enlarged and took several biopsies he is also sending me for an ultrasound. Anybody know anything about enlarged uterus what are the common causes, I am very worried. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
Welcome to the site. Just to let you know, 99% of ovarian cysts are BENIGN. Ovarian cysts mimic ovca symptoms. Other symptoms include lower back pain and GI problems such as acid reflux, heart burn, constipation and diarria(sp). You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I also sometimes get pain in my right leg. ive beocme really lethargic and tired and feel i have fever sometimes along with an urgency to urinate frequently. sexual intercourse is also very painful for me. i read somewhere these are all symtoms of ovarian cancer. should i be worried?

gov/cancertopics/wyntk/ovary/page5 Since many of the ovarian cyst symptoms are similar to the ovarian cancer symptoms, I am confused whether i should wait for 4 more weeks for repeat US. I already had left ovary removed due to a large dermoid and would like to not go to early menopause by loosing the right ovary; which i am afraid may happen when Dr goes to remove cyst. GYN says CA 125 is not useful for detection; but online resources say CA 125 + HE4 is great for early cancer detection.
food cravings, and an increased appetite, headaches, dizziness, leg cramps, heartburn, nasal congestion, nose bleeds, rib pain, and indigestion are NOT signs of cysts! With cysts u get a bloated feeling, but the pain, if any, is in ur pelvis! These r however, ALL signs of pregnancy! I myself had no trouble at all with the cysts during pregnancy... if fact, I didn't know they were there!!!
First of all let me reassure you that you are wise in seeking medical attention. Although 99% of ovarian cysts are benign, you are doing the right thing. These cysts can cause so many symptoms from severe acid reflux to changing your mentrual cycle due to hormonal imbalances. And let's not forget the pain that they can cause from your rib cage to the back side of your leg. I am glad that you are finally getting the us.
I had been having severe lower back pain, pain in my thighs & right leg, it got to much for me...so i went to the emergency room, they did a catscan & found that I have Ovarian Cysts on both my ovaries, I got scared. I read on my dis-charge papers that they can burst, causing blood & fluid in my stomache that causes severe pain. my question is; what can I do to prevent them from bursting? I see my doctor on the 12th, Dec. 2013.
I know with my cyst I had pain down my leg and around my back. It became so bad that I couldn't walk and had to go into my doctors office (this happened one week ago) and she admitted me and did the surgery that night. If you click on the Health Pages link to the top right of this discussion with the orange logo and then click on the types of ovarian cyst page it will give you all of the types of cysts as well as the symptoms.
