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.

Low grade temp: Your temp is considered normal and probably has nothing to do with your surgery. If you are concerned see your doctor for a complete medical workup. ...Read more

Now-edema in nodes (inner thigh)w/low grade fever. W/endometrial lining@2.1cm +fluid in cul de sac&ovarian cyst@recent ER visit. Should I return2er? W/no insurance what r thoughts on what's wrong

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?

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

Is 99-99.4temp for 2yrs a fever? Never had temp above normal before. Had ovarian cyst surgery 2yrs back bt ultrasound is normal, have polycystic ovaries.

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

Irritation: The fluid from the ovarian cyst, upon rupture, can irritate the lining and can cause your symptoms mentioned above. You may need an ultrasound to follow up on the size of the cyst and to determine further interventions. ...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

Shortness of breath, fever and burning in my entire abdomen. .. Worse by smoking and eating. Pain also in head neck and back. .. History of ovarian cysts and endometriosis and ideas?

See a doctor: You need to be seen face to face, have a detailed history and physical exam and perhaps some lab tests and imaging studies. This cannot and should not be diagnosed over the internet. You sound quite ill and should do this asap. Hope this will be self-limiting and you will be better soon. ...Read more

Pelvic pain, low progesterone levels, ovarian cysts, what is wrong with me?

Hard to say..: These may not be related to each other. Many things can cause pelvic pain, if you have large ovarian cysts (>4cm) they may be the cause, but smaller ones less likely to cause pain. Low prog levels (&small ov cysts) are both normal during certain phases of menstrual cycle. But low prog can cause mood sx, anxiety, sleep disturbances. If you have these natural Progesterone tx may help. ...Read more

Need Fertility Exam: I would refer you to a fertility specialist. Certainly a complex ovarian cyst can be secondary to endometriosis which can adversely affect fertility. Ovarian cyst resulting from polycystic ovary syndrome – a constellation of small cysts in the ovaries, irregular periods, elevated androgens – can contribute to fertility problems. A fertility exam is required for specific answers. ...Read more

2 ovarian cyst, one 8 CM and the other 6cm. Had vus done, low level echos. Going back in 2 months for review. Ca-125 in normal limits. Concered?

Low degree of concer: Most common cause of such benign cysts are functional cysts that are very common in reproductive age females. Unless, presenting with symptoms (pain, nausea, vomiting, fever etc), your physician may opt to follow them with a repeat us in 3-6 months.
Unless you have strong family hx of cancer, or personal hx of cancer, there is a low level of suspicion for ovarian cancer. ...Read more

Can low progesterone cause ovarian cysts? I had a m/c in march, no ret. Prods & still haven't had a period. The longest cycle I've had ever is 45 days

Delayed menses: Periods are often delayed after pregnancy. A 'lazy' pituitary and an ovarian cyst are common causes that will resolve on their own. Uterine scar tissue is a rarer cause. An ultrasound and a blood test can reveal the reasons, and would be appropriate after 3 months. ...Read more

Dr said my blood count is low. 106. I asked is it due to iron. He didn't know. He said sometimes periods, but mine are not heavy. Ovarian cyst only.?

He doesn't know??: The diagnosis of iron deficiency is usually not difficult. It can be done by simple blood tests. I commend your doctor's honesty, but question his acumen (if you are accurately and fully reporting his assessment). Menstrual blood loss is most common cause of iron deficiency anemia in U.K., even among women who report light menses. Ovarian cyst does not cause iron deficiency. Rx is iron supplement ...Read more

Can ovarian cysts effect blood sugar? I had one rupture recently and have been having high & low blood sugar issues for 2 weeks. Also on bcp's

Not likely: Bcps in pcos are not a great idea because they increase Insulin resistance and then affect blood sugar. See if you can stop the bcps and go to Glumetza 2.5 g per day. The ovarian cyst by itself will not affect blood glucose. Cj glueck md. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy 4 months ago. All of my ovarian cyst symptoms are back. Is it okay to go back on my birth control (ortho try-cyclene low)?

I had a hysterectomy 4 months ago. All of my ovarian cyst symptoms are back. Is it okay to go back on my birth control (ortho try-cyclene low)?

Yes: Unfortunately, removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) does not treat ovarian cysts. I would recommend seeing your ob/gyn for a sono to evaluate the ovaries before restarting your pills, however. Birth control has benefits but also risks, so you would want to make sure you are treating the right thing. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst. This month my period is very light to the point that I don't need to wear a pad. My pH levels are low can I still get pregnant?

OVARIAN CYST: Assuming that this ovarian cyst is an unruptured follicle, ovulation will not take place (the egg failed to break the follicle and be released). If this cyst has persisted for some time, it may not have an effect on your ability to become pregnant. Many cysts break, and then normal cycles can resume. Check with your health professional to make sure the cyst is simple and no surgery is required ...Read more
