what symptoms are common in an ovarian cyst?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jane Van Dis
17 years experience Obstetrics and Gynecology
Pain and pressure: Ovarian cysts most commonly present as sharp pain or pressure in the pelvis or abdomen. Sometimes patients report nausea with this pain as well. Sometimes a woman may only have pain with intercourse. The majority of women who have ovarian cysts, however, have no symptoms. An ultrasound will be performed and the woman won't have known she had a cyst.
