Ultrasound Scan And Endometriosis
I have severe pain on my stomach, and the ultrasound and CT scan showed a cyst on my right ovary. I also have a endometriosis. Will the cyst go away?

Sharp abdomen unsettling pain thats hits the back too. No pain killer has helped. Patieny has endometriosis but mild. Had ultrasound no stones?

Painful , heavy menses can be remedied with a trial of birth control pills or other forms of hormonal suppression depending on your medical history, etc. Might be best to try this before pursuing laparoscopy. Okay to ask your doctor about their opinion on surgery. Answer will depend on your particular situation. Don't be afraid to bring it up and one can also seek a second opinion. ...Read moreGet help now ›
