CT Scan identified an 8cm cyst on ovary had ultrasound and internal scan today it’s gone

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, 

I’m new to this forum and Looking for some advice.

I had a CT scan April 12th this year for ongoing issues it identified an 8cm cyst on my right ovary, today I went for an ultrasound and Transvaginal scan and was told it’s no longer there!!! I’m always in pain in that area sometimes doubled over and having to hold that area when walking.  I’m worried I’m going to be fobbed off again.

Any advice would be much appreciated thanks Angie

      Hi Tracy,

      I went today for the Transvaginal scan and all he said was there’s nothing there now, haven’t been told what sort of cyst it was, and today is the first day I’ve been able to walk properly since a week last Friday.

      It must have been a simple cyst cause i had one on my right ovary and it disappeared but keep up on it cause that is how the one on my left side was and it turned out to be a complex so that is y they had removed it cause it was enlarging

      Thanks Tracy, it’s just a bit worrying as I’ve had on-going problems for a few years now, I had colonoscopy 2 years ago which was clear so they said it was just good old IBS so I went away and got in with my life then last August bank holiday I ended up in hospital with severe pain in pelvis area and bleeding from back passage for a week after 8 days they discharged me saying it was gastroenteritis I wasn’t convinced because it came on really quickly after going to the toilet for a wee. I was referred to colerectal general surgeon as my doctor thought I could have diverticulitis he said he didn’t  think so and that’s how I ended up having a CT Scan which found the cyst so they have now discharged me and referred me to a gynaecologist. I also started keeping a diary and have found it Starts about a week before my period it wipes me out and I’ve had to take sick days because of it I’m wondering if it could be endometriosis
