Swollen Legs From Ovarian Cyst
Depends: It would need to be of a sufficiently large size to do so. Remember that ovaries produce cysts every month, and these (functional) cysts are normal, and don't cause pain. If they get larger than normal, (my opinion >3-4cm) or grow in size rapidly, or if they cause bleeding into the abdominal cavity then they can cause pelvic pain. Sometimes the pain will refer down the inner or front of the up. Thigh. ...Read more

2 months ago I found out I had a right ovarian cyst @ ER I'm still having sharp pains lower back pains leg pains and headaches could it b cancerous?
Unlikely.: Some cysts, like serous cystadenomas are precursors of cancers. Any cyst the persists for more than 2-3 menstrual periods should be checked further, particularly in those who have a history of ovarian cancer. You are young to think of such possibillities, but your pain is likely from your cyst, which can get filled with blood. You also could have painful endometriosis. Get it removed asap. ...Read more
If gigantic: Typical ovarian cysts are too small to compress nerves leaving the lower spinal cord to enter the leg. A super large cyst could conceivably affect the retro-peritoneal ilio-hypogastric or ilio-inguinal nerves, or even the femoral, but I have never encountered this. I have seen post-operative complications affecting all of these nerves however. ...Read more

Leg has tingling sensation had ovarian cyst rupture a week ago and dual pain in lower pelvic area witch shots down leg giving off tingling sensation?
Referred pain: It is hard to tell the cause of your symptoms. It is possible that you have referred pain. This could result from the inflammatory process in the pelvic area due to your recent cyst rupture. Your nervous system detect the inflammatory process. However your brain and spinal cord interprets the problem coming from your legs instead in the form of tingling. Check with your physician for proper care. ...Read more

I have a 93mm unilocular midline ovarian cyst, possibly cystadenoma. Pain in lower buttock down leg, very restricted urination.
Need removal: Typically a CA-125 level would be checked to help determine the likelihood of malignancy. Sounds low based on the US findings. Regardless, the mass should be removed to relieve your symptoms and so that a pathologist can evaluate the ovary. Most times both tubes and ovaries would be removed and sometimes the uterus. Discuss with surgeon to make the best decision. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst 25mm can it cause aching legs and pain on the opposite ovary, also is it normal to have periods every 14 days or less at 47?
Something else: It would be uncommon for a cyst 25mm to cause pain. If the pain was associated with endometriosis, then yes, this could be of a piece causing pain, but cysts that size are too small to cause pain in and of themselves. Not normal to have periods that frequent at 47. Could be breakthrough bleeding, but need biopsy at 47 to make sure it's not pre-cancer or cancer. See your gynecologist soon. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst on my right ovary but swelling and pain on my left lower abdomen and swelling down my left leg. When will the symptoms stop?
Time: Some ovarian cysts are functional cysts that will go away in 2-6 weeks. Sometimes birth control pills will help them to resolve faster. Other cysts are benign growths. These don't go away and if they get large enough will need to be removed surgically. If you aren't starting to feel better in several weeks see your doctor again. ...Read more

Possibly: The ovarian 2.5 cm cyst is only one inch in diameter, but if it is sitting on a nerve that runs through your pelvis to your legs, you will get inguinal or radiating leg pain, depending on the nerve and its' distribution.
