Unusual location of ovary pain

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi! I'm just curious where do other people with ovarian cysts feel the pain.

Mine is strange, it sometimes feels in the pelvic area, but sometimes moves really high up, in the right side , in line with my belly, or even a bit higher. Sometimes even goes towards my right hip... It's way upper than where my ovaries are, so I'm concerned the pain may come from somewhere other than my cyst. (At last scan the cyst on my right side was almost 4 cm btw)

I wanna mention i had my appendix removed and did thorough tests and scans which show that my organs are fine... It just feels like my cyst pain is really weird and it would be great if I could hear from other people with similar experience what it feels like. It would help me ease my mind a bit...

    Yes, this is normal.

    The pain will move all around and deflect to different areas. For me, it was always the hip and lower pelvis area! I know others have had it go down their legs etc...

    I just posted about this same topic! I was diagnosed with a 4cm heamorraghic cyst in January, due for a follow up scan next week but I am not convinced my symptoms are ovary related because my pain is so high up! As you say - next to my belly button and slightly higher, also get pain around my ribs. Only down left side though and that's where the cyst is! Could the cyst be causing movement in the general abdomen area?!
