Re: Can a cyst make your legs hurt?
I realize this is a little late, but, yes, a cyst can cause leg pain. Six years ago I would get what was like sciatic pain down the back of one of my legs. This would happen when I would stand up for a while in one position, like washing dishes. I paid attention to it for a year, noticing it would only happen around ovulation and last until my period. I went to my gyn and said I must have something going on with my ovary because of the pattern of leg pain. Sure enough, I had a lemon-sized cyst on my right side. When he went in to remove it, it was actually my LEFT cyst that was the problem. What had happened was my ovaries had both fallen behind my uterus and criss-crossed somehow, pressing on my nerves to my leg(I had a previous tubal ligation, so maybe that let them travel?).
