No ER: Perhaps there is a plan parnthood clinic in your town or other free health care clinic. The er is not the place for a detailed conversation about causes of enlarged lymph nodes in your inner thigh. It sounds like from your note that an ultrasound was performed. I also assume that blood work was done. I'd follow up via phone call in a few days to check on the lab results and seek a clinic appt. ...Read more

6 cm cyst: An ovarian cyst of 6 cm. Is potentially a significant risk that can be watched under some circumstances, or in others need to be removed. The main risk is not cancer (although there's that too) but rupture or torsion. No need to panic, but you must be followed very closely by a doctor who understands this - please see a doctor asap, this is not an online help problem. ...Read more

I thought my severe pain was appendicitis, but turned out to be an ovarian cyst. I'm in excrutiating pain w/a consistant lowgrade fever. Worry or not?

Not to: "worry" but "excruciating" pain and fever from an uncomplicated ovarian cyst is very unusual...contact your GYN for further treatment.

Hope this is helpful

I have a complex ovarian cyst partially rupture yesterday. Starting to improve but have slight fever (99.9) despite being on nsaids. Should I be worried?

No, but call MD: This is a general answer since I don't know your clinical specifics: probably not! Doctors define fever as temperature over 100.4 f, measured twice more than 4 hours apart. Hence, you don't have a fever, although this can be confused by taking nsaids. If in doubt at all you should call your doctor. ...Read more

Fever: Fever is not normal, particularly for a 2 year period, but single temperature recordings are not necessarily helpful. Keep a careful record of temps and the times taken 4 times a day and add in any other symptoms to the list and take with you to a doctor. Perhaps an infectious diseases expert. ...Read more

I have multiple small ovarian cysts and a mucus filled cyst in my cervix. Symptoms: pelvic pain, bruising, sore breasts, fever. What is going on?

Common findings: The multiple cysts on your ovaries are common for women of your age. The cervix cyst is also abnormal variant. The pain and sore breasts could also be attributed to "normal" variations in your cycle. The fever and bruising should be worked up by your PCP. From a Gyn standpoint, these seem like common findings, but should be talked about with your doctors. ...Read more
