Hie, Am having right ovarian cyst 50mm*30mm size. It is paining, symptoms are like urinary urgency, lower abdomen pain, lower abdomen pressure.

See a Dr: If an ovarian cyst is causing discomfort and urinary urgency, it needs further workup to ensure that it has not twisted or ruptured. Pressure on the lower abdomen probably means the cyst is increasing in size and needs re-evaluation to ensure there is no associated fibroid in the uterus. Alternatively the symptoms can be due to a simple Urinary tract infection. See a Dr to get your urine tested ...Read more

Can an ovarian cyst or tumor cause you to have dark tarry blood in stools with abdominal distention and gas with pain?

Not usually.: The only way that this scenario could happen is if the tumor or ovarian cyst was connected to the digestive tract via an abnormal fistula. This would be a highly unlikely event, and if you do have black tarry stools, I would instead suspect a problem in the upper digestive tract rather than in the ovaries. If this is occurring, go to your local emergency room immediately. Good luck. ...Read more
