Can a 2.5cm ovarian cyst cause bad groin pain and aching behind knee (same side).The ovary is painful and the groin/leg pain started at this time also?

Possibly: The ovarian 2.5 cm cyst is only one inch in diameter, but if it is sitting on a nerve that runs through your pelvis to your legs, you will get inguinal or radiating leg pain, depending on the nerve and its' distribution. Pose your question with the MD who diagnosed the cyst initially and if it is not a GYN MD then find one who is, that can examine you. ...Read more

Yes: The ruptured ovarian cyst produces a fluid that when it is released and next to the peritoneum (lining of the inside of the body cavity) can produce those symptoms by irritating the nerves to you legs as well. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst on left ovary for 2 years. Constant dull pain in groin area. Has not changed in size 2.75cm. Should i opt for removal?Dr leaving it 2 me

Maybe: You say that you've had a pain in the area for 2 years, that's a long time. While the cyst is on the smaller side, at 2.75cm, if the pain is interfering with your quality of life then maybe a laparoscopic surgery would be warranted. Drs will recommend surgery when it's necessary, but when you're the one taking the risks, and there's no threat of cancer, then you are the best one to decide. ...Read more

Constant severe left side pelvicpain I thought ovarian cyst sono normal painful sex&radiates to groin when climbing stairs. possible Sacroiliac joint?

Not sacroiliac: Sacroiliac joint problems don't produce those types of symptoms. Pelvic, muscular, or ligament problems are more likely. Has your gynecologist cleared you of all pelvic problems? Do you recall any strain type injuries of the lower abdomen or groin? Does your left hip bother you? If symptoms persist repeat evaluation and examination of these areas are needed. ...Read more

Could ovarian cysts cause leg weakness?

Could ovarian cysts cause leg weakness?

If gigantic: Typical ovarian cysts are too small to compress nerves leaving the lower spinal cord to enter the leg. A super large cyst could conceivably affect the retro-peritoneal ilio-hypogastric or ilio-inguinal nerves, or even the femoral, but I have never encountered this. I have seen post-operative complications affecting all of these nerves however. ...Read more

Does an ovarian cyst cause leg pain and pelvic pain?

Does an ovarian cyst cause leg pain and pelvic pain?

Depends: It would need to be of a sufficiently large size to do so. Remember that ovaries produce cysts every month, and these (functional) cysts are normal, and don't cause pain. If they get larger than normal, (my opinion >3-4cm) or grow in size rapidly, or if they cause bleeding into the abdominal cavity then they can cause pelvic pain.Sometimes the pain will refer down the inner or front of the up.Thigh. ...Read more
