What is the difference between ovarian torsion and rupture? D cyst

Pain severity?: Many patients with twisted ovaries note that the pain makes it difficult to "laugh, talk, walk, breathe, or be touched in the abdomen". Ruptured cyst patients note a "moment of severe pain" which often passes after a few hours.

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.

Had an ovarian torsion because of a large cyst. Ovary removed. What are the chances of this happening again. I have some pains in and around incision.

Not possible. ..: If the whole ovary is removed, there should be no recurrence on the same side, but not preclude a similar occurrence on the opposite. Post-surgical pain at incision may linger for a highly variable duration, and occasionally, such pain may stay... For detail, ask surgeon timely. ...Read more

What is the difference between ovarian torsion and rupture? Is it the same thing?

What is the difference between ovarian torsion and rupture? Is it the same thing?

I went to the ER. Ovarian torsion. It ruptured. Pain shot to right shoulder. Shoulder still hurts. Ovary hurts again. No med prescribed. Mass on panc?

Here are some. ..: The specifics of the Q is not quite clear, but I assumed there might be cyst (S) in the twisted ovary, which might rupture resulting from necrosis of twisted ovary. All the necrotic tissue from its twisting and expelled cystic fluid became the waste of the body, which will be "digested" by healing process, which in turn leads to inflammation over a variable duration so the pain lingers until... ...Read more

Disappeared ovarian cyst. Why do I still have pain? Do I need second opinion? Just nervous if it grows again without knowing and have torsion suddenly

Disappeared ovarian cyst. Why do I still have pain? Do I need second opinion? Just nervous if it grows again without knowing and have torsion suddenly

No second opinion: There are various causes of ovarian cysts. The most common is an ovulatory cyst which you have each month prior to ovulation. This cyst ruptures and you ovulate. Oftentimes there is a little blood that is spilled into the peritoneal cavity. This can cause pain which resolves. Other cysts can form and either torse or rupture. If you have severe pain that persists, you should be seen by your dr. ...Read more

Fainted w strong pain after eating when I had ovarian cyst. Doc said likely torsion. Removed. Got recurrence 5cm, had strong pain after eating. Same?

Correct diagnosis?: Eating to fill stomach does nothing to do with ovarian torsion although it may occur and recur at any given time. So, focus on watching and recording to log what you eat and drink so hopefully to pin-point any food-related incompatibility. If not helpful, collect the feature, degree, and progress of all related symptoms with their detailed sequence of events, and bring those to see doc... ...Read more

Why does my 3.6 CM ovarian cyst hurt? Went to ER & they said to come back if having severe pain (meaning torsion) is bloating/pain really that normal?

Why does my 3.6 CM ovarian cyst hurt? Went to ER & they said to come back if having severe pain (meaning torsion) is bloating/pain really that normal?

Many possiblities: An ovarian cyst hurts due to the pressure of the fluid and the inflammation on the lining of the ovary. This will persist till the body resorbs the fluid. Bloating and sharp pain are normal for a cyst. Sever pain means a significant increase from the pain that took you to the ER in the first place. If your pain has worsened then see a doctor. If it is the same then give it time. ...Read more

However, professional alertness + timely analysis the detailed Hx of onset, degree, duration, and interval of pain remain the key to suspecting its Dx. ...Read more
