Hi all. I've just got back from a full abdominal ultra sound scan. For the past year or so, I've needed to pee on a regular basis that seems more often that others, for example I can't hold for very long, and need to pee 1 or 2 times at night. I thought maybe I have a small bladder and so went for a scan to check.
To my complete surprise, a large cyst was found!! It measures about 14 x10 x 9 cm, she said the size of a grapefruit On the scan you could clearly see it pressing on my bladder, which was full as I had to drink for the scan. She was not certain what type of cyst it is, but it is blood filled but no blood flow.
I was really shocked because I never have any pain, I do a lot of exercise, and eat healthily. I'm in my early 30s. My periods are regular and not painful, and I never have tummy pains before/during or after my period. I dont have bloating, and my tummy is flat so no external signs. So I am unsure if this is an ovarian cyst or something else? And I'm really anxious that because of the size it is ovarian cancer, yet I have no associated symptoms (I have a large appetite, normal weight, not fatigued).
I have a referral to a specialist soon, but just wanted any feedback as I am so scared now to know there is something that large inside, yet causing no issues other than frequent peeing! I am also terrified it will affect my fertility (no kids yet but planning to with my hubby). I am unsure if it will need removing, and if so, how.
Please let me know if you have any info or advice!! Thanks so much!
