Having an ovarian cyst. Chances of ovarian cancer? Distended abdomen, nausea, irregular periods and spotting

I am 37 years old I was just recently diagnosed with a ruptured ovarian cyst (1.5 x 2cm) but my Dr. wants me to be seen by the GYN asap. I was diagnosed a couple weeks back and still having all of the symptoms that I ve had since September time. I still have a distended abdomen, irregular periods with spotting in between, nausea on a daily basis, extreme fatigue , leaking small amounts of urine on a daily basis, frequent heartburn and headaches and lower back pain. These are just the annoying symptoms. I wouldn t think that everything would be lasting this long. Should I be worried?

Hi, thanks for using HCM.

Cysts in ovary are common finding, seen in many women. Not all cysts are cancerous. Depending on ultrasound findings of cyst we can decide further management.
Cyst rupture results in symptoms like pain abdomen , vomiting etc. These symptoms should subside in a few days. If symptoms persists for longer duration, need to be evaluated for cause.

irregular periods and spotting could be due to hormonal disturbances or endometrial problem. You may need to get endometrial study, PAP smear after consulting gynecologist.

common reason for urine leak is reduced support to urinary bladder and urethra. Get examined by doctor. Regular pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercise are useful in controlling symptoms.

Not to worry,Get CBC, peripheral smear, hormonal test like thyroid profile after consulting your doctor.

Hope this helps you.
