hi im 17 years old and a week ago i found out i had a 5 cm solid cyst on my right ovary I've been in pain for about 4 months can you believe they only found it last week...well they don't even know if its bleeding or not and my doctor said just wait for it to go away the problem is im in severe pain to the point where i don't want to move right now its an ongoing pain when i go to the bathroom when i lay down and sit down..do you think the doctors right for just letting me sit here in extreme pain for 6 weeks until they check it again or should they remove it? please tell me what you think its greatly appreciated

  • Go see a different doctor for a second opinion. You shouldn't be in that much pain. In the meantime, for the pain, acupuncture is wonderful and will get you out of bed until you can get medical treatment. Ask mom to make appointments as soon as possible.

  • I agree 100% with MonsterLove. I had a 7cm ovarian cyst and never had this kind of severe pain...the danger with cysts is that they may rupture, and it is an ER situation if that occurs - similar to an appendicitis attack. Acupuncture and chinese herbs helped tremendously with my bloating and pain (which was there, but not severe). I do recommend this to help with your symptoms, but you need another doc's opinion on this "wait and see" attitude. Have they put you on bc pills? What are your periods like? Do you also have low back pain? How are your bowel movements? Have they diagnosed you with a simple cyst or a "chocolate" cyst? Best wishesDOM
