Could a large renal cyst (5cm) be causing my lower back pain? If so, what are my options and what doctor do I need to see?

Possible, unlikely: If your renal cyst was found incidentally and not because of symptoms then it is probably not related to your low back pain. Generally renal cysts don't cause low back pain since they are not really near your low back. They might cause flank (side) pain. You would see a nephrologist to evaluate your cyst. I would suggest a spine physiatrist or orthopaedic spine surgeon to evaluate your low back. ...Read more

Is there any risk of paralysis when a double-looped cyst that is causing sacrum n lower back pain is surgically removed from s2 (racepinephrine)?

Is there any risk of paralysis when a double-looped cyst that is causing sacrum n lower back pain is surgically removed from s2 (racepinephrine)?

S2 (racepinephrine) Cyst: There is always a risk of nerve damage with any spinal surgery. Risks would include bleeding, infection, and nerve damage. Typically sacral cysts must be large or already causing nerve compression before a surgeon would operate. Because of the location of the cyst, I would be most concerned with damage to the s2 (racepinephrine) or lower sacral nerves. Paralysis is unlikely. Talk to your surgeon. ...Read more

Is there a test to determine if recurrent lower back pain is caused by medium size cyst in s2 (racepinephrine) shown in mri? No other abnormality except 1disc bulge.

Back pain: Medium size cyst in s2 (racepinephrine) vertebra should not cause low back pain. Disc bulge is common in many people and that should not give lower back pain. Back strain, improper posture or prolonged sitting in one place, big belly, lack of exercise and walking, usually cause lower back pain. Walking for 30 to 45 minutes, back muscle strengthing exercise and cold pack usually relieve back pain. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: Pain from the very insist would normally be filled in front and to one side or the other. However it is possible to have pain in the back from the cyst. Ovarian cysts again not the usual cause of miscarriages however, you can get a hemorrhagic corpus luteum cyst which lowers the Progesterone level which leads to miscarriage.

I'm having severe cramping with severe lower back pain and puking as well as I have a cyst on my left ovary. How can I stop the pain. I can't get comf?

Should be evaluated: The cyst is probably unrelated to your other complaints. Need to be evaluated in person.
FYI: would be helpful if you would describe:
1) when the symptoms began
2) are the symptoms continuous or intermittent
3) if intermittent, how long they last (seconds, minutes, hours)
4) What makes it worse (eating, moving, etc)
5) what makes it better (medicines, rest, etc)
6) what have you done so far

Sacrum n lower back pain doc said may be caused by a double loop cyst at s2 (racepinephrine). Suggested surgery. Why do some cysts cause symptoms but others don't?

Sacrum n lower back pain doc said may be caused by a double loop cyst at s2 (racepinephrine). Suggested surgery. Why do some cysts cause symptoms but others don't?

Not sure what you: Mean by "double loop cyst." he may be referring to a benign incidental finding (usually noted on your lumbar spine mri), which are mostly asymptomatic called tarlov cysts, which are perineurial cysts.

Only on very rare occasions could this be the cause of your symptoms. So go have a spine surgeon evaluate you and give you a better answer after a physical examination and review of your mri. ...Read more

Mri shows cyst in s2 (racepinephrine). Want to do lumbar traction for lower back pain. Will it affect cyst?

Maybe: Cyst at s2 (racepinephrine) sounds like a tarlov cyst. That's a fluid filled sac that normally doesn't cause pain and requires no treatment. On rare occasions it can be large enough to put pressure on nerves or erode bone to cause pain. Therefore I would have a physician tell you why you're having low back pain before you see a chiropractor. If the cyst is incidental like it most likely is, doing some traction is ok. ...Read more

13week preg. Posterior placenta. Left adnexal cyst 5.19cm x 5 cm. Sometimes having lower back pain in bone. Slight pain on lower right abdomen. Pls suggest?

Recurrent lower back pain for the past 10 months. Sometimes r, sometimes l. Pain when sit, stand, walk. Related to cyst in s2 (racepinephrine)? Or is it muscle strain?

Pelvis/Back: A common musculoskeletal problem to back pain that persists when you walk is the sacroiliac joints of the pelvis. This is easily injured in twists and falls. It may complicate degenerative disc disease. The muscle spasms can alert you to the joint misalignment. See a chiropractor or a musculoskeletal doctor for treatment, and learn how to avert the problem with exercise, posture, and footwear. ...Read more

I have a cyst in my right kidney dimension 1 litre or 12 cm diameter. I also have low back pain due to 2 damaged discs. My questions are: 1 - Does the cyst impact the back pain negatively? 2 - Should I have the cyst removed? Any surgery risk?

Hard to say-maybe: That's an impressive sized cyst in the kidney & may be big enough to refer pain itself to the back. The presence of degenerative disks in the back likely means overall pain is a combination of both problems happening at once. Surgical risks are present in ALL cases where anesthesia is given.

I have 4-5 cm ovarian cyst causing nausea and low back pain. Dr wants to follow up in 6 weeks with ultrasound. Should I be concerned it is cancerous?

I have 4-5 cm ovarian cyst causing nausea and low back pain. Dr wants to follow up in 6 weeks with ultrasound. Should I be concerned it is cancerous?

Unlikely: Lifetime risk of cancer is 1 in 60-90. Small odds. It usually strikes women after the age of 45. There are other findings on an ultrasound that can suggest if its a benign or malignant looking cyst. If your gyn feels its safe to follow in 6 weeks, that's a normal approach.
