hi, I have been reading some threads about ovarian cysts etc......I'm 52 and my pain started with right hand side under my rib. Obviously looked on the internet and initially it was suggested gallbladder. I went to GP god knows how many times and I eventually got an ultrasound. This showed a small stone in each kidney, plus a 4mm stone in my gallbladder. So one would reasonably put my pain in the abdomen and middle to right back down to this! Mmmmm, not quite. Symptoms went from just a dull constant ache on my right hand side, which is why gallbladder has been ruled out now, to bloated painful stomach at times, middle back pain worse when using my arms for anything. Then about two weeks ago started getting dull low pelvic pain, in front and back, plus throbbing in left hand side of pelvis. I have only one ovary left, other one taken out due to dermoid cyst years ago.
My question is this, as this has been going on for so long should I be concerned re ovarian cancer, I've all the symptoms bar frequent urgent weeing. Oh and not fatigued. I'm really worried because it's such a long time. I have a ct scan booked for Thursday this week......any of you ladies out there able to allay my fears re this, had similar experience? Maybe it's a dermoid cyst which I had on the other ovary , I didn't have the bloating and back pain with the last one which is why I'm s worried re this pain, any help gratefully received Report this
