What's the difference between a cyst and genital herpes? How would these two different things appear in the vagina?

Cyst vs gen. Herpes: The bartholin's glands (which secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina) are located on each side of the vaginal opening. If glands become obstructed, then fluid starts to back up into the gland, turns into bartholin's cyst (under skin lump).Genital herpes are usually small red bumps or tiny white blisters may appear. Cyst=lump under skin, genital herpes=small white blisters. Hope this helped :].

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. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

I'm having severe pain and tingling on the right side of my pelvis where I have a very larger ovarian cyst. Should I seek medical attention?

I'm having severe pain and tingling on the right side of my pelvis where I have a very larger ovarian cyst. Should I seek medical attention?

Always your call, no: Way to offer wise answer from a distance. At the same time beware of assuming than some anatomic observation noted at some previous time has any reliable relationship to what is currently happening, an extremely common mistake because people want/hope-for simple. The ovary is a cystic organ. Follicular cysts are what support development of eggs, ovulation, opportunity for fertilization, pregnancy.

Severe pain on right side of pelvis Hurts more with movement. Could it be ovarian cyst acting up.

Right sided pain: Relatively small "ovarian cysts" always precede ovulation, and with ovulation (release of the egg and rupture of the follicle cyst) pain on the side of ovulation, or even an enlarging ovarian cyst which stretches the ovarian capsule can cause pain. If it persists, see your healthcare provider.

See a doctor.: Ovarian cysts are common. One single mildly enlarged pelvic lymph node is nonspecific. Your doctor may elect to follow up the cyst to see if they would resolve on their own over 2-3 menstrual cycles. They may come and go. See your doctor for check up of the rest of your body to see if there are other enlarged lymph nodes.

I had MRI done on hips finding mildly complex heterogeneous 3.9x3.4x3.8cm ovarian cyst with presence of moderate free fluid within pelvis how serious?

At your age,: This is most likely a benign hemorrhagic cyst, but it needs to be followed up with your gyn and probably follow up ultrasounds to see if it resolves.

Hard to say: It is hard to say since there are many different causes of these findings. The first thing recommended should be a pelvic ultrasound with doppler flow studies. The cyst can be a functional cyst with hemorragh (caused by the function of the ovary-ovulation), an endometrioma, a cystic teratoma or dermoid, or a cancer. The doppler flow will be increased if it is cancer.

Depends: Fluid in the pelvis after ruptured ovarian cyst is typical. Cysts on the ovaries may be typical depending on the stage in your cycle. How big were the cysts? I assume your pregnancy test is negative?

Off my period but still experiencing sharp pains in pelvis and aching back. Could it be ovarian cysts?

Pelvic pain: Pelvic pain is complex as there are several organs in the pelvis. The ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, cervix, bladder, appendix, intestines, colon and rectum can all be the source. Pelvic pain requires and examination to help organize the evaluation.

30/f endometriosis and ovarian cysts had left ovary and tube removed. Had fluid drained off pelvis 6 months later. Now I'm in horrible pain.

30/f endometriosis and ovarian cysts had left ovary and tube removed. Had fluid drained off pelvis 6 months later. Now I'm in horrible pain.

You suffering sole: 30's female with endometriosis is one of a multitude of suffering persons. Doctors do not know cause. Unfortunately operative procedures of the pelvic cavity tissues can arouse adhesions. I have often wondered at incidence of bowel obstruction ; irritable bowel syndrome as function of serial operative procedures many endometriosis patients undergo.

Same answer: It appears you have asked this a few times and received answers. An ovarian cyst is certainly one possibility. There are many many others. An exam and testing will be needed to help narrow down the causes.

I have 3 ovarian cysts, one on tube. Have fluid in pelvis. Getting us in a few weeks. Now abnormal pap. Getting colposcopy. Should I be worried?

I have 3 ovarian cysts, one on tube. Have fluid in pelvis. Getting us in a few weeks. Now abnormal pap. Getting colposcopy. Should I be worried?

Don't worry, but: Whoa! Ovarian cysts aren't on tubes so you either have 2 ovarian cysts and one tubal (?), or 3 ovarian cysts. This is not to worry about by itself. Fluid in the pelvis? All people have small fluid, and all women have fluid around ovulation and around menstruation. Fluid doesn't automatically mean problems. Bad Pap goes with colposcopy but not the other issues. Your doc can clarify more. Best!
