Since I see many of us come to this forum looking for reassurance I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their cyst stories that did not end up being cancerous in the end. I suspect I have a cyst, I have another appt tomorrow with a different doc since previous doc is ignoring my concerns. I am having panic attacks and cannot sleep thinking of worst case scenario. Today I found mucus in my stool and googled (should not have) and it points to cancer. Can you all share your cyst stories, symptoms, fears, and results (only those that were not cancer) please? I promise I will follow up with my own results no matter what. It really helps knowing others understand and the outcome was not cancer.
My symptoms (I am not sure if these are related or not to what I believe is a cyst) all started two months ago and seem to be getting worse.
Pain in arm and armpit that starts at ovulation and ends at menses. The pain comes and goes, is not constant or consistent.
I am having trouble with bowel movements. Can't clear out completely, there is mucus in stool starting today, it's soft but I have to strain (it's like sensation to go is not there).
I have pain in lower right abdomen that has been there for almost two weeks and it radiates to hip, top of thigh, and lower back sometimes. I use over the counter pain meds to keep the pain down.
Just left breast swells after ovulation and returns to normal after menses but still stays somewhat sore. The pain in breast goes up and down in severity prior to menses. Right breast stays normal.
I had severe bloat that made me look pregnant. Tummy tight, heavy and uncomfortable for about 4 days but finally returned to normal for now.
I lost 3 lbs in one day. I am eating but I don't feel hungry at usual times. I just eat cause I know I should.
My stomach is constantly grumbling. Xray shows lots of air but it will not come out. It is very loud and moves all day long. Always sounds like I am starving but I'm not.
(appendicitis has been ruled out) Doc did pelvic exam but said she could not tell if what she felt was a cyst or fibroid.
