Pain in the lower left abdomen for about 3 months. Had ultrasound all organs ok but cyst in left ovary got vagynal ultrasound no cyst .What can it be?

Ovarian cysts: The left ovarian cyst seen on the ultrasound could cause your left abdominal pain. Depending on the size, they are often observed and can resolve over time. In your age group, other causes are less common. If this pain persists, a further workup is needed.

Yes: An ultrasound is the best imaging study to look at the pelvic organs (tubes, ovaries and uterus). An ultrasound can be used to evaluate bladder. A doctor wanting to evaluate the bladder, may also use cystoscopy, or putting a camera into the bladder and examining the walls of the bladder directly. A cyst on the ovary won't typically affect bladder at all unless it's cancer, worried about growth. ...Read more
