    I am also scared of the "C" word. I have two ovarian cyst (one in each). In a few weeks they will go inside me and check. Good luck, dont be afraid it wont help your situation. Remember healthy eating, positive thinking. I just started taking beet, carrot and molasses juice yesterday, hipefully it will desappear the cyst.

      Dayanara,

      โ€‹well I am more than stubborn I have known about them for 3 years they showed up on an MRI when they were looking for something else they said they were large. I haven't seen about them because of fear. But I have been feeling worse around my period every month and am starting to realize I can no longer hope they go away... TY for your words of encoragement. Let me know how it goes if you don't mind. Maybe if I know what to expect I won't be so afraid.

      Good morning xx

      I was rushed into A&E twice before they picked up my 11cm x 10cm dermoid cyst on my right ovary... I was in a lot of pain resulting in me having gas and air and morphine... They reassured me as much as they could and did everything possible to try and save my right ovary but where the chat had strangled my ovary they had to remove it unfortunately along with my dermoid cyst! I had laparoscopic surgery ( 3 incisions) belly button, the side of my stomach and my bikini line...! I've made a full recovery from my op and only have a few phantom pains which is normal...! Please please I can't stress enough get it sorted and you will feel so much better ... I suffered for too long being fobbed off with kidney and bladder infections which the doctor kept telling me I had! It was the gyno that saved me by operation before the cyst spread to my other ovary! XXXX good luck ๐Ÿ˜† Xxxxx

      Stacey, I am glad you are feeling better thank you for your advice. I have constant bladder and kidney infections. I had no idea that could be the reason! I can not ty enough! I will get them looked at asap! Can it cause infertility? I have one child haven't been on Birth control at all in 11 years and can't get pregnant. Too late now anyway I have a lot of health problems so its dangerous . I am lucky to have my boy! I just wonder if it was found earlier if maybe I could have had another child. Hugs to you ty so much!!

      Dayanara add milk thistle complex to your diet. You need to address the underlying cause of your cysts which is usually a hormone imbalance caused by too much estrogen. The liver can't handle the excess hormones and it causes cysts to develop. The milk thistle detoxes the liver and balances the hormones. It's worth doing a detox for 3 months to clear any excess hormones from your liver and balancing your hormones. Good luck x

    Manda ask for a ca125 blood test. It's the main test for ovarian cancer and will hopefully put your mind at ease. You could also try milk thistle extract to address the underlying hormonal imbalance and get rid of the cyst. Removing the cyst does not guarantee you won't get another one unfortunately unless they remove your ovary. Good luck xx
