Ovarian Cysts Fatigue Headaches
I have an ovarian cyst. How long can I expect to be in pain? It's been 4 days. I also have a pounding headache and am very fatigued. Is this normal?
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.

A few months ago i had an ovarian cyst rupture and since then i've had random, sharp stabs of pain in that left ovarian area along with headaches, bac?
I've just recovered from 9mths of mono. I also have a 2cm ovarian cyst. Could either (or both) cause terrible headaches that i now experience? Thanks!
Maybe mono. : Ovarian cysts are often silent, and when they're symptomatic, abdominal or back pain predominates the clinical picture. Mono can have a long recovery, including chronic headache. Also be aware of tension fatigue syndrome that can follow mono in some cases and can have headache as a symptom. Best to see your doctor to figure this out. ...Read more

It should be noted that ca-125 is not specific and can elevated for many reasons, not just ovarian cancer. ...Read more
2 months ago i found out i had a right ovarian cyst @ ER i'm still having sharp pains lower back pains leg pains and headaches could it b cancerous?
Unlikely.: Some cysts, like serous cystadenomas are precursors of cancers. Any cyst the persists for more than 2-3 menstrual periods should be checked further, particularly in those who have a history of ovarian cancer. You are young to think of such possibillities, but your pain is likely from your cyst, which can get filled with blood. You also could have painful endometriosis. Get it removed asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
