I am 19 years old. I was diagnosed with PCOS when i was around 14. I have elevated testosterone in the 90s. I have been having a lot of pain latly. I frequently have to go to the bathroom even if a lot does not come out. I have bloating and the feeling of fullness. I have horrible pain with intercourse to the point I cant even have it. Even with my gyno exam i get swollen/bloated for the rest of the day to the point i look pregnant. also sometimes i randomly get sharp excruciating pains.

i just went to my gyno and she sent me for a u/s.. it took very long they did the normal one first then a transvaginal and then a normal one again. it took very long and the women who did the test wanted to see my doctor immeadiatly. My doctor briefly looked over the results and came out to tell me i have a 6 cm cyst.

i have nnot had a period in 7months and i am on progesterone to force one.. then i will start birth control. My doctor wants me to have 2 periods then come back and have the ultra sounds repeadted.

i also have a few swollen inguinal lymph nodes. they have been swollen over a year now. they have never been painful so they are not from infection.. not sure what to think.

could the lymph nodes mean something more than just a cyst.. i know there are some cases when the cyst are cancerous.. i know it is rare. but the tech woman was very concerned with the results and i could over hear them speaking a bit and my doctor seemed concerned as well... she is just an amazing doctor and keeps everything calm.

thanks for any help :)
