What would be the diff btw the pain in the colon and ovarian cyst?

I have a complex ovarian cyst with septations and debris about 14ml in volume. It was 7ml 3 months ago. It's now pressing against my colon. Treatment?

Talk to your GYN: Your personal GYN can best answer for your specific case, but generally if the cyst is enlarging and causing symptoms by pressing against your colon it may be best treated surgically.

Recently had a CT scan is it possible for a remarkably thickened sigmoid colon, bulky uterus, and ovarian cyst over 5cm to be related? Concerned

Recently had a CT scan is it possible for a remarkably thickened sigmoid colon, bulky uterus, and ovarian cyst over 5cm to be related? Concerned

Guessing: This is hard to call form just a description of CT, not knowing any other clinical facts. Can say: 1) the bulky uterus is 100% unrelated to the other findings, the thickened sigmoid "may" be related to the ovarian cyst or vice-versa. A doctor who knows your whole history and exam could answer these for you, can't say more online. Good wishes ...Read more

I have two ovarian cyst that have ruptured and caused stomach infections. Would it have an impact on my fertility and future pregnancy?

I have two ovarian cyst that have ruptured and caused stomach infections. Would it have an impact on my fertility and future pregnancy?

It might: Depends on cause, treatment (surgery?), etc. Maybe tests already were done or planned to evaluate for fallopian tube damage (laparoscopy, ultrasound, etc). Discuss with your gynecolgist and/or infertility specialist. Ask if "infected ovarian cyst" was a euphemism for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or tubo-ovarian abscess, which may cause more tube damage than simple infected cysts. Good luck! ...Read more

2nd time in 3 months an U/S has shown bilateral ovarian cysts. But I thought only one ovary ovulates each month? R ovary hurts, cyst is 1cm.

2nd time in 3 months an U/S has shown bilateral  ovarian cysts. But I thought only one ovary ovulates each month? R ovary hurts, cyst is 1cm.

Bilateral cysts: A one cm ovarian cyst is quite small and in the process of ovulation production both ovaries are stimulated and cysts sometimes forms. You are correct that ovaries generally alternate ovulation, but unless you have PCOS most cysts are benign and unilateral. ...Read more

Pelvic u/s showed a 2 CM ovarian cyst. Pain got worse,u/s repeated 2 days later.Cyst was now 4 CM. Will it keep growing that quickly? It hurts a lot

Pelvic u/s showed a 2 CM ovarian cyst. Pain got worse,u/s repeated 2 days later.Cyst was now 4 CM.  Will it keep growing that quickly? It hurts a lot

Can not predict: WE can not predict how an individual cyst will behave over time. The most likely scenario is that a small ovarian cyst like this will resolve on its own over time. Follow up monitoring by your obgyn should be done ...Read more
