I am 23 years old. Early September, I was diagnosed with a 6 cm cyst on my left ovary. My gyn told me to come back for an ultrasound in a month. I had a lot of sharp pain in my left pelvis, but eventually it subsided. It started to kick up again around the time I got my 2nd ultrasound. To my surprise (and hers, apparently), when I went to see my gyn, she told me that I had a 5 cm cyst on my RIGHT ovary, and my left was clear. I even looked at the report.
In disbelief, she called the radiologist to confirm, and they said yes, the cyst is indeed on the right side.
I am still having pain on the left side! Lots of it! In addition, in the past week I've felt extremely bloated with stabbing abdominal pains, almost like ulcer pains, except it goes on throughout the day. I have nausea and an overall "unwell" feeling.
I have no history of cysts before now, but have been skipping periods and having bleeding between periods for the past year or so. I am becoming very concerned about ovarian cancer being a possibility. Also, why would I still be feeling this on the left?
Thank you for any reassurance. :( This site is a big help.
