I have an ovarian cyst on my right side that is 1.3cm big but why do I have a severe sharp pain in my lower right abdomen?

Doubt cyst is cause: A 1.3cm ovarian cyst is usually a normal finding. Small cysts are part of your normal menstrual cycle. They form as part of ovulation. Doctors who don't know why you have pain will sometimes tell you that your pain is from a small cyst like this but this is rarely true. I don't know why you have pain but I doubt it is coming from this cyst. Best wishes! ...Read more
