I have an ovarian cyst on my right ovary but swelling and pain on my left lower abdomen and swelling down my left leg. When will the symptoms stop?

Cancer unlikely : Typically ovarian cancer has no symptoms until they are very advanced. Your symptoms are nonspecific, an don't point towards a single diagnosis. Ask your doctor if you could have irritable bowel syndrome, or if a referral to a gastroenterologist is appropriate. They can also do a proper evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more
