Concern about a cyst

Posted , 5 users are following.

I was sent to the ER four days ago because of a sudden, severe abdominal pain. The gynecologist was from hell: yelled at me for going to the hospital for such a small thing. Prescribed only pain medicine.

On monday (two days ago) I went to ER again, becaus the pain didn't stop. It was better but I was still in pain. Blood results showed 11.6sth of leukocytes, and I had a mild fewer. Echoscopy showed a 4x5.2 cm cyst with several(?) Walls and free fluid (1cm) in the abdomen. I was prescribed antibiotics. I went to see my gynecologist again yesterday. She said that there wass a lot of free fluid in my abdomen area, and the cyst looked weird/different that what she is used to see. Told me to continue my antibiotics course and see her after my period.

Should I be worried? The pain is still continuing. Not severe, but uncomfortable. My abdomen feels bloeted, my pants wont fit, I don't want to eat.

Should I be worried? Can it be a cancerous cyst?

Sorry for being paranoid smile

    I would get a second opinion. Have you seen your primary care physician about this?

    I agree with Barbara I would get a second opinion on this too, if it were me I would insisted she did some tests there and then.  Good luck

    Personally if it was me.i would see another doctor and explain the pain and the anxiety this is causing you. Dont be fobbed of with bad tempered consultants.

    Take care G x
