Bursting A Cyst
A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more
Depends: If it ruptures internally, it causes an inflammatory reaction. If it ruptures to the outside through a small opening the contents may dry up and grow like a horn, albeit very slowly, The rupture may allow the lesion to heal also. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Pain, adhesions.: A dermoid cyst is full of a oil like substance and often hair and other debris that can cause a lot of internal irritation/inflammation. This can lead to something called adhesions, where the internal organs stick together. All of this will cause immediate pain. If the rupture is during surgery, and rapid suction/cleanup is performed, the results are usually very good. ...Read more

Cyst Removal: I assume you are talking about a cyst under the skin somewhere. Yes, it hurts. But not badly. We use lidocaine to numb the area so you get a couple of shots with a small sharp needle. That is the only pain you feel. We then remove the cyst and sew up the skin. It will be sore for a few days. ...Read more
Rest and Ibuprofen: When an ovarian cyst ruptures, the cyst fluid irritates your insides causing pain. Usually this pain lasts only a few days and then goes away on its own. It is usually treated with something like Ibuprofen to help with the pain as your body reabsorbs the fluid. If you have pain that lasts for months, its unlikely to be from a ruptured ovarian cyst. See your doctor. ...Read more
I have a leaky previously burst baker's cyst. Now whenever I am active I brake out in hives lasting a couple hours. Worried about endemic inflamatio?
Unrelated: The bakers cyst is unrelated to the problem with hives. One type of hives that is primarily associated with exercise or increased body heat is cholinerfic urticaria. Any type of hives may worsen with exercise or heat however. See your doctor or an allergist for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Besides a burst/ruptured cyst, what could cause a lot of fluid in an ovary (fluid picked up in a transvaginal scan)?
How long till fluid goes away after burst ovarian cyst i look like a ballon my legs full of fluid to?
Very concerning : A ruptured ovarian cyst would definitely not cause anything like what you are describing. If you are really swelling in your legs, abdomen and have been diagnosed with an ovarian mass please see your doctor asap. These are concerning symptoms for more serious conditions than an ovarian cyst. The kidneys and heart need evaluation too. ...Read more

I'm 47, in perimenopause, had burst ovarian cyst. Dr wants me to take Lo Loestrin FE 1-10 for 6 months. Is it safe? Have no risk factors, but PSVT.
Unclear why/not safe: Your real, significant risks in taking contraceptive pills at this point in your life (age 47, cardiac arrhythmias...) seem to outweigh the minimal, questionable benefits of suppressing your ovulation (OCPunfortunately will not be effective in preventing another ovarian cyst)Depending on the "pathology of your burst ovarian cyst" which I presume was removed surgically, recurrence is unlikely. ...Read more

Not recommended: Ganglion cysts are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons or joints of your wrists or hands. These cysts do not need treatment unless they are painful and persistent. Many of them will resolve with rest. While there are accounts of patients bursting these cysts with a heavy object, there is also the possibility of aggravating the cyst. If necessary, see a hand surgeon. ...Read more
My brother in law has suffered from burst cyst in his anus.. Due to this he is currently paralyzed.. Not sure if it permanent or temp as it just hapnd?
Most Unusual: In 23 years as a colon and rectal surgeon I have not seen an anal cyst cause paralysis, so this is very unusual. I have to assume he had a very serious infection that affected his spinal cord and would improve. I also have to wonder if the explanation got confused in passing it along... ...Read more
I started bleeding heavy and feeling bloated, i started having vaginal pain, can this be the result of a burst cyst?
Vaginal bleeding: this could represent peri menopausal bleeding. Other causes include fibroids or functional ovarian cysts. If this is is irregular could be caused by vaginitis, cervicitis etc. based on your age however, this is more likely due to the changing patterns of your reproductive hormonal status which is normal. In other to be certain, I recommend a pelvic ultrasound and a GYN exam. Hope this helps ...Read more
Yes: That probably happens more often that most people would think. The ovaries are located near the top of the vagina and ovarian cysts are very common. It may not take very much pressure to rupture some ovarian cysts - it is unlikely that a women or her partner would know that it has happened. ...Read more
