Ovarian cysts vs pain

Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts vs pain


Avatar f tn My mom recently passed away with Ovarian cancer and my sister has had two large ovarian cysts. I have been having some of the the same type of symptoms (dull left sided pain that can stab me at times, change in bowel habits, no appetite, bloating, irregular periods). My Gyn recently moved out of the area and I have had the hardest time getting an appointment to see a new one. I finally got one in two weeks. Is it ok to wait this long?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Okay. I found out I had gallstones last year. I went a whole year with gallstones problems and attacks. Sept 2015 is when i missed my period for the first time. Had a short periodin Oct. 2015. 2 days. Skipped Nov 2015. Had a gallbladder attack. Had a CT scan done. Just gallstones nothing else. Normal in Dec 2015. Jan 2016 I decided to get my gallbladder removed. I had a CT scan with/without dye. Guess what showed up. A 6 cm cyst on my right ovary. I have history of cysts.
Avatar f tn Heartburn is about 3-5 times a week with normal foods - this is fairly new in the last few months. There is more...but they are all symptoms of ovarian cysts and ovarian cancer. In January, I stayed home from work one day not feeling well and I watched Dr. Oz. There was a woman on there that had been treated for UTIs, Acid Reflux, IBS, and some of them repeatedly. But something about that spoke to me.
Avatar f tn If you check in on the health pages to the right of this you will find an artical that explains cysts in detail cysts signs and symptoms
Avatar n tn Or has anyone else experienced these intense issues with ovarian cysts? Anybody??
Avatar f tn lately i have abdominal pain. a ct of pelvis showed right ovarian cyst. is it possible this cyst is actually cancer. and how can i know for sure?
Avatar n tn Don't continue waiting for ultrasounds.....pain and nausea along with cysts is not to be messed with. You need to find out what is going on. Peace.
Avatar f tn My sister had uterine fibroids and had a total hysterectomy. My other sister has ovarian cysts that are being watched. I always had regular periods up until july 2005. I only get my period every four months or so now. My Obgyn did an ultrasound (abdominal) because of my absent periods. I had no other symptoms other than my abdomen kinda distended but I thought I had just gained some weight. I have ovarian cysts on both of my ovaries. One is 15 cm and the other is 12 cm. My ca-125 was only 24.
Avatar n tn The cells in the ovary are able to make hair, teeth, and other growing tissues that become part of a forming ovarian cyst. These cysts can become large and cause pain. Polycystic ovaries. The eggs mature within the follicles, or sacs, but the sac doesn't break open to release the egg. The cycle repeats, follicles continue to grow inside the ovary, and cysts form. For more information about polycystic ovaries, refer to our FAQ on Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Avatar f tn The symptoms are vague, and usually come on slowly enough that it is hard to identify a distinct change. Cancer vs. benign cysts present with almost the same exact symptoms, and ovarian cancer is rare in the scheme of things. What you describe could be anything from an ovarian cyst to adhesions from your C-section. Do you have a clinic or somewhere close would take you for an appointment without insurance?
Avatar f tn The answer to your question is no Ovarian cysts are differerent from Adrenal cysts. The Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys. They are responsible for releasing hormones in conjunction with stress. Though connected to the kidneys, they play no role in the functioning of the kidneys. Adrenal Glands are part of the endocrine system. I don't know if your Dr recommended anything yet but I would definitely take your daughter to a pediatric endocinologist.
Avatar f tn By the info that I gave you above, is it likely that it could still be cancer? Years ago my sister had an 11 pound benign ovarian cyst. Are cysts hereditary? I am 45 years old. I have pain on my left side. The pain is more severe when I have to urinate and my bladder is full. It is also more painful when I need to empty my bowels. I used to have severe IBS with loose bowels. Most often now, I am very constipated. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn You should also have stool sent for parasites. Finally a pelvic ultrasound is a quick and easy way to look for ovarian cysts or fluid in the abdomen. There is no information to suggest that ovarian hyper stimulation puts you at risk for ovarian cancer. the data on increased risk of ovarian cancer and ovulation induction is in women with a known history of infertility who probably had something wrong with their ovaries to start .
543028 tn?1282432426 I found a study where women who have had this operation are more likely to have large ovarian cysts. I was shocked. There is so much about the human body that medicine does not yet know. Everything is so connected. I visit an acupuncturist and am so surprised at how Chinese medicine really works with these connections.
Avatar n tn Hormonal treatment in the form of birth control pills is the preferred treatment for reducing ovarian cysts. The pills will show there effects within 2 to 3 months. Ovarian drilling is a surgical procedure that can be associated with complications like adhesions. Hope this helps. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I know some of them could be from the cysts, but I'm not sure that ovarian cysts could cause everything. I'm worried that there might be more going on that this doctor isn't seeing, even though he is a gyn/oncologist. * weight loss of 15 lbs. in one month (without dieting) * lack of appetite * swollen abdomen (even with a weight loss of 23 lbs. since July, the last 15 of which weren't intentional, my tummy is so large that my pants I wore before the weight loss are tight!
Avatar f tn I've been having lower left back pain and pain radiating in my left thigh for some time now. I thought it was sciatic, but when MRI showed nothing I started researching some more. Don't be nervous...pray and rebuke this mass from your body. God knows what you can handle and will only give you that much. I can't wait for both of us to start feeling better soon. Good luck with everything!
Avatar n tn Anyone who has followed my posts will know the pain I went through with these cysts, and even two days before surgery ultasound showed cysts hadn't changed, yet pain became excrutiating.
Avatar n tn I endured what 10 years of intermittant heavy periods, had pelvic exams all normal, I suspected phantom cysts on my right ovary given the pain at times, not bad. I have a high pain threshold and am a huge child at dr's offices with procedures (pelvic ones)! I was hospitalized in May of 08 diagnosed with acute colitis, I witnessed my son racially suffer police abuse in a very small town and very good ole boys. It threw my off big time.
Avatar n tn Doctor re-examined me and still felt mass and said I should have a CT Scan of abdomen and pelvis area. What will CT Scan show? Do post menapausal women get ovarian cysts? How often are they malignant? ALSO I started hot flashes and night sweats again, HRT has not helped. Could this be serious????
