What are the symptoms of appendicitis vs ovarian cyst? 

Onset of pain.: On physical examination, it is often very difficult to distinguish a ruptured right ovarian cyst from appendicitis; however, with a ruptured cyst, the onset of the pain is typically "hyperacute", whereas, with appendicitis the pain often begins like a typical "stomach ache" in the upper or mid abdomen before "moving" to the right lower abdomen. ...Read more

Common symptoms are abdominal pain localizing to the right lower quadrant, nausea or vomiting, and loss of appetite. Appendicitis is treated with IV fluids + antibiotics and appendectomy (surgical removal of the appendix) either as an ...Read more

How do I know if I have appendicitis or ovarian cyst leaking?

How do I know if I have appendicitis or ovarian cyst leaking?

Go to your doctor. : Self diagnosis is very risky, especially with appendicitis. Go to your doctor or the er. A ct would be the best test to distinguish between a cyst and appendicitis. Get checked though because if it is appendicitis, delay in diagnosis can lead to rupture which can cause fertility problems in the future, or even death. ...Read more

Corpus luteum: The most common would be the corpus luteum cyst, that which can develop in an ovary after egg delivery. However, any cyst which ruptures into the abdominal cavity can cause irritation of the pelvis and right lower quadrant, and is in the differential diagnosis of rlq pain in a female. Good luck. ...Read more

If i did have an ovarian cyst rupture, how long does the pain last? I am completing 2 days. Appendicitis and kidney stones were ruled out.

If i did have an ovarian cyst rupture, how long does the pain last? I am completing 2 days. Appendicitis and kidney stones were ruled out.

3-5days: 3-5 days is typical. But the pain should always be gradually getting better. If it gets worse at any time, you should seek care again. Also it is 100% important that pregnancy is not a possible cause of the symptoms. ...Read more

I : I am very concerned about several things here. That is way too much Ibuprofen (advil and Motrin are other words for ibuprofen). Taking 800 mg every 6 hours for a few days is a lot, but taking 800 mg every two hours is very concerning, and can cause side effects with your stomach and your kidneys. You need to be immediately evaluated for this pain and irregular bleeding. It is not normal. Sometimes these symptoms can occur in the first few months after a mirena, (levonorgestrel) but you state you are 25 months out, so these symptoms are very abnormal. Please have a complete gynecological evaluation. You likely need an imaging study such as an ultrasound. There are other pain medications that you can be treated with. Please be seen immediately for your symptoms. ...Read more

Diagnosed w/a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Everyone (ER docs) thought appendicitis.CT &ultra sound showed cyst. High WBC. Severe pain again. Any advice?

Diagnosed w/a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst. Everyone (ER docs) thought appendicitis.CT &ultra sound showed cyst. High WBC.  Severe pain again. Any advice?

Pelvic abscess: The high WBC count worries me. Hemorrhagic cyst may be associated with an abscess. It may not have been infected before but is now infected (abscess is usually due to a focal bacterial infection). I suspect that your doctor put you on antibiotics. If you are getting worse on the antibiotics, they may not be working. Call your doctor right away to let the doctor know it is worsening. ...Read more

Ever since my ovarian cyst rupture i can't seem to feel better from my abdomen it makes me think it's appendicities but ER said it's not what it is ?

Ovarian cyst rupture: Pain after a cyst rupture is usually from the fluid or blood irritating the lining of the abdominal wall (called peritoneum). Pain can sometimes persist until the fluid or blood is absorbed, but generally fades over 3-7 days. Workup should include a sonogram of the ovaries and pelvis, as well as a ctscan. If the pain perists, a diagnostic laparoscopy (a surgical procedure) can be considered. ...Read more
