Pain on left side feels like trapped gas and it is felt on both lower and upper quadrants (low rib and underneath) Usually every few months after eating. Area hurts if pressed on. Could endometriosis or ovarian cysts be causing it?

Splenic flexure: The colon takes a sharp 90 degree turn under the left rib cage and this splenic flexure is the site of trapped gas at times. Applying heat to the abdomen and drinking hot water helps break down the gas enabling you to pass it. Taking simethicone after meals helps prevent gas build up. If these measures relieve your distress, it would rule out the other diagnoses. ...Read more

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. This would be a highly unlikely event, and if you do have black tarry stools, I would instead suspect a problem in the upper digestive tract rather than in the ovaries. If this is occurring, go to your local emergency room immediately. Good luck. ...Read more

Maybe: The cyst may be producing greater amounts of estrogen, but other things /causes need to be checked. Your profile says you are 62 years old - if that's the case then you need to see a doctor and have a sonogram & biopsy (at a minimum).
