Ultrasound showed 2.4x1.3 cm hypoechoic nonvascular region in upper pole cortex of left kidney. Otherwise normal kidney. I'm freaking out. Cancer?

It can be benign: Cysts are common in the kidneys. So ask your doctor to confirm if it is cystic or solid structure. Cysts are benign fluid filled structures whic can be left alone. Solid lesions can be a tumor and may need to be removed. Repeat follow up in 6 months can be reassuring if there is no further increase in size. You may need to seen a Urologist to advice you further ...Read more

If I have pain in my ovarian region when I lift something heavy could it be a hernia?

If I have pain in my ovarian region when I lift something heavy could it be a hernia?

Yes, however : As with any abdominal pain, if persistent, severe, or recurrent, it needs to be evaluated by a physician: in this case, internist, gynecologist, or fp. There are a number of possibilities, and it may not be easy to diagnose (good physical exam, possibly vaginal or rectal exam, blood tests, perhaps sonogram needed). The history makes me think first of hernia, but no guessing. Have it checked out. ...Read more

Is it normal to have mild to moderate pain in ovarian region or the pelvic part throughout the month especially a week before periods?

Is it normal to have mild to moderate pain in ovarian region or the pelvic part throughout the month especially a week before periods?

Pain is never normal: It is normal to have periodic visits to an OBGYN and this might be a good time to see one. An exam may tell you why this is happening and may suggest a treatment. It might be that you are particularly sensitive to the ovulation process even if it's fine and the info can help you relax. A Rx of proper hormones may relieve this - have an exam. ...Read more

I had ovarian cancer a year ago. I have been healthy since but I am having pressure and pain in my pelvic region for a week could it be cyst or cancer?

Very possible,,,: This is rare in women your age and if surgery was done and it was all removed, there should be no recurrence, but if it wasn't all removed, it can certainly recur and would likely need surgery again with chemotherapy. You'd be we'll advised to see your doctor for at least a follow up exam and for evaluation on this important issue. Best of luck. ...Read more

Is ovarian pain a sign of pregnancy 19 days into my cycle? I have a 26 day cycle i tried to conceive on days 9, 12, and 14 this month where is this sharp pain coming from it is right sided ovary region pain

Pain : Pain at midcycle is usually pain from ovulation, if it is before a pregnancy has been documented. However, pain in the ovary region after pregnancy can represent a "corpus luteum cyst", which is a cyst on the ovary that feeds the pregnancy prior to implantation of the fetus on the placenta. Pain during pregnancy can also be "round ligament pain" as the uterus enlarges. If a patient is pregnant and has severe ovarian pain however, then rarely ectopic pregnancy (tubal) should be considered, but fortunately that is very rare and is usually accompanied by spotting. If a patient had persistent pain and is pregnant then they should consult their gynecologist. ...Read more

I've had 2 miscarriage s and I'm trying to conceive and I have irregular peroids. I may think I have ovarian cancer. Lump in pubic region.

I've had 2 miscarriage s and I'm trying to conceive and I have irregular peroids. I may think I have ovarian cancer.  Lump in pubic region.

Don't worry: Many young women have irregular periods due to anovulatory cycles. Early miscarriages are common and are not necessarily an indication that you will have problems carrying a pregnancy to term. Ovarian cancer is very unlikely in a 20 year old, but it you feel a lump in your pubic region, you should have it examined by a healthcare provider so you know what it is and than you will not have to worr ...Read more

Ovarian cyst ? Hernia ? Cancer? My lower right  pelvic region is very tender and hurts. I feel some sort of bulge or mass when walking sitting coughin
