Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired.

Does a small ovarian cyst cause pain even if it hasn't ruptured. Experiencing pelvic discomfort, nausea, frequent urination, even rib discomfort.

UTI: Have your urine tested. This could also be a urinary tract infection. Small cysts don't usually cause that much pain. Women produce cysts every month to release the egg.

I have an ovarian cyst it's been causing me very severe pain in my left side and it's causing frequent urination. Is this normal?

No: Anytime pain is a part of the question, it is always prudent to discuss with your MD therapies or a solution to the issue. Urinary frequency is indicative of a possible urinary tract infection.

I was diagnosed tuesday with an ovarian cyst. 6.4 cm. It is thursday and I can hardly handle the pain, frequent urination, and lower right side pain?

Frequent urination: Some of the symptoms you describe can also be attributed to kidney (ureteral) stones, bladder infections, ovarian torsions, appendicitis to name a few. I would call your doctor for an immediate evaluation to make sure it is nothing more serious.

At ER May8 diagnosed w left ruptured ovarian cyst. Pain is increasing again. Hurts w/ any movement. Also frequent urination is it normal a week after?

At ER May8 diagnosed w left ruptured ovarian cyst. Pain is increasing again. Hurts w/ any movement. Also frequent urination is it normal a week after?

Pelvic pain: Hi glenda, urination after a left ruptured ovarian cyst is not usual. To be honest you may have a urinary tract infection, and I recommend that you get checked. Not all urinary tract infections present as painful urination, or burning sensation.

Complex ovarian cyst 5.6 cm. 2 ER visits in 1 week. Current severe pain, frequent urination, no bowel movement 2 days, feel bloated/distended. ER?

Complex ovarian cyst 5.6 cm. 2 ER visits in 1 week. Current severe pain, frequent urination, no bowel movement 2 days, feel bloated/distended. ER?

Severe pain--> ED: Have you called your gynecologist? Frequently, the ER will recommend a provider if you do not have one. If you are in severe pain, you should consider returning to the ED for further evaluation. Some ovarian cysts will resolve on their own. Others will require surgical evaluation. Only a physician who has reviewed the ultrasound and examined you can help formulate the best treatment plan.

I have a small ovarian cyst that hasn't ruptured. Pelvic, lower back, upper back discomfort, nausea and frequent urination. When do they form?

I have a small ovarian cyst that hasn't ruptured. Pelvic, lower back, upper back discomfort, nausea and frequent urination. When do they form?

Always: Formation of cysts is what ovaries do "for a living". The cysts that persist and cause symptoms are the ones that may need to be investigated. However, formation of cysts on the ovaries is normal.

Negative preg. Test but pelvic pain, ovarian cyst on right. Pressure. Per doctor not an emergency. Frequent urination. Doctor next week. 2nd opinion?

Pelvic pain: The pain that you are experiencing could be from the cyst. If the pain is not disabling it is prudent to observe it and repeat the ultrasound in a few weeks especially if it is done after a period. Frequent urination could be a sign of a UTI or an overactive bladder which could also cause pelvic pain. You need to follow up with your doctor.

Could a hx of abnormal paps, high risk HPV, increase risk of ovarian cysts being cancerous? Lg cysts 4-7 cm, frequent urination, severe pain/pressure

Could a hx of abnormal paps, high risk HPV, increase risk of ovarian cysts being cancerous? Lg cysts 4-7 cm, frequent urination, severe pain/pressure

No increased risk: Unlike cervical, anal, and vulvar cancer, ovarian cancer is not caused HPV, and there is no evidence that the risk of overian cancer is any higher in women with HPV, either high or low risk types. Presumably you're in the care of a gynecologist for the ovarian cysts. Continue to follow up as directed and follow her advice. Good luck!

6.4 ovarian cyst. Not pregnant and no urine or kidney problems had test done. Sharp awful pain in low right abdomen. Frequent urination. Bloating.

Laparoscopy...: A large ovarian cyst can give you pain and bloating. How it is treated depends on how bad your pain is and on its appearance on ultrasound. If you are in a lot of pain, it can be removed surgically, usually using laparoscopy as an out-patient procedure. Laparoscopy results in very small scars. These cysts are almost never cancer is a women in her 20s. Best wishes!

I have had my period for 8 years. I have missed this period and I have pain in by back, sides, and ovaries. I have constipation and frequent urination.? What could this be? I know I have ovarian cyst. Could it be ovarian cancer, or a kidney infection. I am

I have had my period for 8 years. I have missed this period and I have pain in by back, sides, and ovaries. I have constipation and frequent urination.? What could this be? I know I have ovarian cyst. Could it be ovarian cancer, or a kidney infection. I am

Go see ur FamilyDoc: Without painful urination, it's very unlikely for you to have a kidney infection. At your age, it's unlikely for you to have ovarian cancer. However, you should see your Family Doc for evaluation & treatment. Perhaps you're suffering from endometriosis or maybe you're pregnant. There are many possibilities so go see your Family Doc.
