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

Good luck. ...Read more

Severe lower right quad. pain. Have complex ovarian cyst. Have gained 4 inches in waist and hips in a month but no weight gain. Could it be from cyst?

Severe lower right quad. pain. Have complex ovarian cyst. Have gained 4 inches in waist and hips in a month but no weight gain. Could it be from cyst?

Maybe: Ovarian cysts can get large. They can cause pain, and also predispose to ovarian torsion, which cuts off the blood supply to the ovary, causes severe pain, and requires emergent medical attention. There are other causes of severe right lower quadrant pain that have nothing to do with the ovaries, like appendicitis. Please seek medical attention ASAP. ...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

Can para ovarian cysts & or ovarian cysts cause leg numbness? I had sonogram & was told I have a para ovarian cyst & an ovarian cyst, each 2cm

Ovarian cyst 25mm can it cause aching legs and pain on the opposite ovary, also is it normal to have periods every 14 days or less at 47?

Something else: It would be uncommon for a cyst 25mm to cause pain. If the pain was associated with endometriosis, then yes, this could be of a piece causing pain, but cysts that size are too small to cause pain in and of themselves. Not normal to have periods that frequent at 47. Could be breakthrough bleeding, but need biopsy at 47 to make sure it's not pre-cancer or cancer. See your gynecologist soon. ...Read more

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

If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

Hmm...: Well sciatica generally is not caused by anything in the abdomen, so highly unlikely the fluid from ovarian cyst caused your sciatica. I would have your doctor get an MRI of your spine if your sciatica doesn't resolve in a week or two as the most likely culprit will be a herniated disc. ...Read more
