Was diagnosed with a right ovarian cyst, but have pain in my left side. Is this normal?

Was diagnosed with a right ovarian cyst, but have pain in my left side. Is this normal?

Possible: It's not normal, but possible to have pain in the opposite side. If the cyst ruptures, some blood may spill in the pelvis and irritate the tissue, causing pain. If it moves to the other side, it will hurt there. More likely, however, pain on the opposite side may be due to something else going on. Left sided pain is frequently related to the colon. You may need to have that evaluated. ...Read more

I have several ovarian cyst 3 on my left side they are all small 1.4 but I have one on my right side that is 4.6 which is causing the pain im hurting?

You should be seen: An enlarging cyst that is painful is in danger of rupturing with any injury, even sex. See the doc who prescribed the ultrasound and ask to have it removed. Tell them you are also worried about cancer (which it probably isn't with this many cysts, but the only way to prove it is to remove it). Also ask whether anything can be done to slow the growth of the cysts. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst on my left side. I just started bleeding, period isent due for two weeks? What is this?

2 Things: It's possible, though unlikely, that the ovarian cyst caused your bleeding. Most cysts aren't hormonally 'active' as it were and wouldn't affect the uterus' cycling. More likely is that you are having breakthrough bleeding, due to changes in your ovaries' production of estrogen and progesterone. See a doctor if the breakthrough bleeding continues. ...Read more
