Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids are not normal but they are quite common.

Ovarian cysts can come and go based on the monthly cycle.

You can read more about ovarian cysts (which are fluid filled sacs) here: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/ovarian-cyst

Uterine fibroids are very common and are non-cancerous growths inside the uterus (womb). The can start as small growths but can grow to be quite large. You can read more here: http://www.empowher.com/condition/uterine-fibroids/definition

You need to talk to your doctor about your options.

I hope this has helped!
