Common Questions and Answers about Signs of ovarian cysts in women

what are the first signs of having ovarian cysts?? can tey cause you to not get pregnant??
I believe the cause is a ruptured ovarian cyst. What are some symptoms of a rupture, and are there any at-home remedies I can do to cope with/treat it? Also, are there any signs to look for that it could be something worse that would require a trip to a doctor/hospital?
I've heard of some women having only the cysts removed and leaving some or all of the ovaries intact. You could ask your doctor about that possibility or get another opinion. Some doctors are not as comfortable doing something that delicate. It's easier to pull the whole works. If you can keep some ovary, then you'll still have your hormones that can lead to a natural menopause. Are you nervous about HRT or about the surgery?
also do you know anything regarding the type of kidney cysts that are showing up in my kidney? , it was showing ventrally and in the mid pole of the kidney.
If it bugs you alot i would definatly go to a doctor and get it taken care of like the previous person stated women get cysts on their ovaries during their period and they go away and sometimes they dont and sometimes they just get bigger as in my case. My only advice is to be observant on the pain and if it gets worse or doens't go away go to a doctor and get it looked at.
I am going in for my hundredth (LOL) U/S tomorrow, I have had this pain before with no signs of cysts as well as very small cysts. My gyno has mentioned removing my right ovary with a full hystorectomy. I am grasping at straws as to what to do.......... I feel my pain tolerance is normal but the pain I am having in my abdomen with these cysts ranging in sizes, is unbearable most of the time. I am very confused as to what the right decision is and if there is anything else I can do?
I have no idea, I've even heard of anyone having ovarian cysts that young. But, I believe if it were my child and she were in that much pain, I would try to get a second opinion. Or get her in to see a specialist without a referal if it is possible, although I believe most insurance companies require a referal. Maybe call your doctor back and explain that you would rather go on and see specialist now and not wait, due to the amount of pain she is in daily? Best of luck to her, and you too.
HI, Weight loss is a big help in women with PCOS. The fat or adipose tissue is the site that causes hormones to go hay wire. Hence a healthy diet and regular exercise and lifestyle modification will help. Take care and good luck.
I want you to have my story to read. To know that all the signs can be pointing to one thing - in my case I was petrified of cancer- but the CA was elevated as a result of the endometriosis. I am feeling great. Ready to get back to living my life. I hope that anyone who is playing the waiting game as I did - waiting for the definitive diagnosis that only surgery and pathology can give you - I want you to wait with hope.
A strong woman isn't afraid of anything… But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear. A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her… But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone. A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… A woman of strength realizes life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them. A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face… But a woman of strength wears grace.

Several small ovarian cysts may be very normal at 48 and small fibroids are present in up to 40% of women. Endometrial thickening can be benign and caused by low levels of estrogen and a lack of progesterone as you transition into menopause. Estrogen builds up the lining and no more progesterone prevents it from leveling off and shedding.
Ovarian Cancer is often misdiagnosed, an average of 3 to 12 month delay in diagnosis because people are not aware of the signs and symptoms. The best and only defense against this disease right now is early detection. I believe that everyone with a cyst could be at risk and if we, those that are educated in this beast, are not there to poke and prod and suggest Oncologists or share our stories...than we are doing a disservice to those people. This forum is big enough for everyone.
So now I'm playing the waiting game.....I have started the strict diet again, but if anyone has any info. on getting rid of ovarian cysts it would be helpful. Thanks!

I have alot of the symptoms of ovarian cancer. pelvic pain. low back pain, fullness in my abdomen...I had a CT scan done at the E.R. a couple of weeks ago but it didn't show any masses or anything. Would it have definately show something or are there other tests that are more definate at diagnosing...
An cyst on ovaries could either be functional cyst, polycystic ovaries, endometrial cysts, cytadenomas and dermoid cysts. Each of these types of ovarian cyst has varying symptoms because their growth differs from one another. The bad thing about having symptoms of a busted ovarian cyst on ovaries is that it is hard to detect its symptoms at the early stage, just like functional cyst. Some women may even mistake the symptoms for discomforts connected to their monthly period.
In clinical testing, First Response detected the hormone levels in 69% of women 4 days before their expected period, in 83% of women 3 days before their expected period, in 93% of women 2 days before their expected period, and in 93% of women 1 day before their expected period." That leaves a whole seven percent of us that could be totally pregnant with no indication from our pregnancy tests! Okay, I'm being a little silly, but it does leave a glimmer of hope.
I'm seeking information on the first signs of ovarian cancer by someone that has been diagnosed recently. Day before yesterday I was bitten by a spider and thought it was nothing. I noticed blood in my urine but I had a partial hysterectomy in 2003 so that didn't make sense to me (Uterus and one ovary was taken out). I thought that perhaps the spider bite was a brown recluse bite since those kinds of bites can affect the kidneys and cause blood in the urine.
I was in the ER the night before Thanksgiving with all the classic signs of ovarian cysts, however, the ER concentrated on my appendix. When they finally got around to doing the CT scan, my appendix looked "questionable" to them. The said there was "free air" and what looked like a "mass" but they weren't sure so they admitted me and waited to see what the surgeon thought. They never did an US or anything to rule out any other problem.
but it doesn't mean u will! Something like 80% of women have some form of cysts, it only becomes a problem if there r lots of cysts, or if they're bigger than 2cm. The pain u've described doesn't fit with cysts as they hurt in pelvis and not in the abdomin or under ribs! It seriously sounds like ur pregnant! I wanna say Congratulations, but u haven't said if u would be happy if u were or not. Do ur boobs throb or tingle at the mo? or r they slightly sore?
Why not ask for a repeat of the test? Women who have ovarian cancer can have Ca 125's in the range of 1000, even in the 10,000+ range so 39.3 is not very high. The CA125 is often only used to monitor women who already have the disease it is not a screening tool for ovarian cancer as it has too many other illnesses that can cause it to become elevated. A CA125 over 35 can be elevated by stress, fever, your period, various benign conditions such as endo and benign cysts.
When ovarian cancer spreads, it causes enlarged lymph nodes and other masses that can be seen on scans, as well as large amounts of fluid in the abdomen (ascites). Small amounts of free fluid in the pelvis is a normal finding and does not indicate ascites. When I was diagnosed, I needed to urinate constantly because the tumor was pressing on my bladder. I could not finish a grocery store run without several trips to the restroom. I also had pain. My tumor was 6cm at the time of my dx.
While ultrasound reveals that polycystic appearing ovaries are commonly seen in up to 20% of women in the reproductive age range, PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a estimated to affect about half as many or approximately 6-10% of women.
I couldnt walk or sit down, i had to neel down and cluntch over casue it hurt so bad. I show all signs of ovarian cancer, but i am only 21 so i dont see how i could have that!!! And the bad thing is that i have no medical insurance, i have two children i cant afford it and me myself i cant get on MA through my county, even though my children are qualified for it. But anyways i dont know what to do i am scared!!!!
I have no symptoms but am concerned because I've read that cysts in postmenopausal women have a greater risk of malignancy. Should I wait 6 months for another sonogram or get a second opinion from another physician?
Not all women with PCOS share the same symptoms.
