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

See your Gyn Doc: If the neurosurgeon has cleared the spine as a cause, then i would have your gyn specialist see you, and possibly with help of an examination and possibly a pelvic ultrasound, confirm your DX and treat you. Good luck. ...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

Usually not: Two 2 cm cysts are generally not big enough to cause leg numbness. Get checked out for another cause. Also the small cyst on the ovary will likely resolve on its own in several weeks. ...Read more

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?

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?

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
