    Curious who here has been DX with ovarian cyst? what was you outcome? I was watching the news the other day and these are the signs & symptoms for ovarian cancer; Most of which I have with the exception of the last entry.

    Bloating- clothes may no longer fit, this is beyond monthly water retention
    Feeling full after eating a small amount of food
    Fatigue and tiredness- a general feeling of malaise
    Low back pain
    Pelvic or abdominal pain or discomfort
    Vague, but persistent gastrointestinal upsets such as gas, nausea and indigestion
    Frequency and/or urgency of urination without having an urinary tract infection
    Unexplained changes in bowel habits;
    Unexplained weight gain or weight loss, particularly weight gain in the abdominal region
    Pelvic and/or abdominal swelling, bloating, and/or feeling of fullness
    Pain during intercourse
    Abnormal postmenopausal bleeding (this symptom is rare).

    I had an ovarian cyst years ago and it was removed. I also have a small one they are watching now.

    I had the pain during intercourse, pelvic pain, and bloating.

    Be sure to get yourself checked ASAP.

    Mine began at the age of 17 and continued until I was 31. My docs kept telling me it was menstrual cramps and I needed to learn how to get through them. Finally had a doctor give me an ultrasound. My left ovary was SEVEN times larger than normal due to cysts covering it. He said, "no wonder you are in pain!"

    Had four surgeries to remove them (numerous)at different times through my twenties and finally a complete hysterectomy.

    Birth control is one medication that is supposed to keep them in check, however it never worked on me.

    I could always feel it, pain and swelling. Was sooooo happy to have it all taken out!!!

    They can be painful! Gat it checked.

    No, not all ovarian cysts are cancerous.
