Pain in the lower abdomen and pelvic area. Ultrasound scan showing ovarian cyst and fluid in adnexa. Is that the reason for pain?

I had an Ultra sound and CT W/out contrast done on my pelvis , for lower right pelvic and abdominal pain . The findings of the images show fluid in the right adnexa. The technician advised that the right ovary could not be seen, the left ovary and it shows a cyst. Should I be concerned? The Emergency room I was released from couldn t elaborate as to whether or not that this is what may be causing my discomfort/pain, for the last couple months.

Hi ursy and welcome to HCM.
Ovarian cysts are common and most of them dont cause any symptoms. Usually it is found accidentaly. It causes symtpoms when become ruptured or torsioned. It is usually periodic and happens during ovulation. Pain is sharp and sudden in lower abdominal area. This fluid can be sign of ruptured cyst or intraabdominal inflammation but also it can mean nothing. You should do frequent followups to evaluate size and enlarging of cyst. If there is any doubt of rupture, malignancy or fast enlarging it can be and should be removed.
Wish you good health.
