Can ovarian cysts this size cause pain?
I've been having a severe achey feeling in my lower abdomen and across my lower back for awhile now. At first, my Dr. thought it was due to a bad UTI. But, the infection has cleared up and I'm still in a lot of pain. So, they sent me for an abdominal u/s and transvaginal u/s. Everything looked ok except I had several cysts on both of my ovaries...the largest was only 1.6cm. This doesn't sound very big to me...and I'm wondering if cysts this size can really cause this much pain. My Dr. seems to think it's possible. My pain isn't one sided at all...it's across my entire lower back and I feel a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen.
They're going to send the path report to my Gyn. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had ovarian cysts around this size...and if so, did they cause a lot of pain?
Thanks so much,
