Can an ovarian cyst or tumor cause you to have dark tarry blood in stools with abdominal distention and gas with pain?

Can an ovarian cyst or tumor cause you to have dark tarry blood in stools with abdominal distention and gas with pain?

Not usually.: The only way that this scenario could happen is if the tumor or ovarian cyst was connected to the digestive tract via an abnormal fistula.

If this is occurring, go to your local emergency room immediately. Good luck. ...Read more
