Should I be worried? 35 yr old, Found 12mm cyst on left ovary that is bleeding into my pelvic cavity. Grandma died (36yrold) from ovarian cancer.

I would advised waiting 4-6 weeks and having a repeat sonogram to check on cyst size. Not sure how much bleeding you're having but signs of anemia to watch out for are dizziness, increasing fatigue, fainting episodes. ...Read more

Found a 2cm cyst. Bleeding in between period. Extremely loud stomach growling and very bloated for 30 days. I wake up with growling. Ovarian cancer?

It's possible: I assume you mean you have an ovarian cyst. If this was seen on ultrasound, it's likely to be a cyst and not cancer. You are very young, and there are many things that can cause the symptoms you describe. However, bloating is a common symptom among women who are later diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I'd go back to your doctor and emphasize how bloated you've been, and ask the same question! ...Read more
