Bruise on left hip, abdominal pain, knot on abdomen. CT scan showed cyst in ovary. Cause of worry?

Hi my nemesis XXXXX . I woke up an a week ago with a horrible bruise on my left hip that came out of no where. I was having severe abdominal pain and went to the er . They tried to tell me it was just a bruise even did a ct scan and blood work. All of that came back ol except for a very small cyst on my ovarie. Well the bruise is almost gone.but I have a medium sized knot remaining and its tender . Should I be worried ? Could it be a hernia and if so even with a ct scan could they have missed something ?

Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this bruise and the pain you and. I will say do not get too worried about this knot. Try some pain medications for this and let's see what happens within 3-5days. If symptoms should persist or get worse, then you may consider returning to see your treating doctor,

Hernia are generally diagnosed by talking to the patient and examining. a test is rarely needed. And with a CT scan done in this case, it would have be a very rare miss not to pick up a hernia if there was any. I am sure it cannot be a hernia unless it just happened suddenly which is unlikely.

I hope you find this helpful. Thank you for using our services and please feel free to ask for more information if need be. I wish you the best of health.
