I have an ovarian cyst on my right side that is 1.3cm big but why do I have a severe sharp pain in my lower right abdomen?

Doctors who don't know why you have pain will sometimes tell you that your pain is from a small cyst like this but this is rarely true. I don't know why you have pain but I doubt it is coming from this cyst. Best wishes! ...Read more
