Cyst and bleeding from bowels
A few months ago I was diagnosed with a complex cyst on my left ovary. This was found when I mentioned to my doctor that maybe I had a hemorrhoid inside because my feces had streaks of blood in it and I also mentioned my periodsd which had always been painful were now like going through labour every month on and off every few hours. He ordered a camera scope to see my colon and an ultrasound to see if anything was wrong.
So, a complex cyst with a volume greater than 19 was detected, repeated ultrasound and same results.
My concern is that maybe these two things are related, has anyone heard of a cyst growing through an intestine wall? How fluky is it for both of these things to appear at once...or any comments or suggestions?
I feel like I need to be the one to initiate tests and dictate the seriousness of what I am going through and would like to go with written questions for my appointment next week. My family doctor will not refer me to a Gyn until he performs multi tests to make sure I need one...anyone heard of that before, I think it's bogus. Getting a second opinion is not an option as the doctors are so overworked here you cannot get into to see anyone else, even outpatients at the hospital will turn you away and tell you to make an appointments with someone if its not serious enough.
I want to go in informed and get the results I want. I have not started menopause, am only 38 and fairly healthy, only problem is medically controlled blood pressure.
Maybe my over imaginative mind is going overboard but I think these two things are connected and need to be fixed...
