I had an ultrasound and trans-vaginal ultrasound done last friday and now today a week later I just found out that I have a 4 cm complex ovarian cyst on my right ovary. I have been having pain for the last six months and I had a pap last November and all came back normal even though I was hurting at that time too. I have done some research and I have all the symptoms of ovarian cancer and I am freaking out now that I have researched the 4 cm complex ovarian cyst on the computer today. I have already had a cyst on my ovary rupture and my ovary had to be pieced back together in 1996 and I was in the hospital for a week. In 2008 I had exploratory surgery done again and my fallopian tube was fused to my colon from the scar tissue from the ovary surgery. In 2010 I had a C-Section to deliver my second son and now I am having all this abdominal pain, bloating, gas, full feeling, frequent urination, constipation, bleeding from my vagina when I have a straigned bowel movement and it is not time for my period. I am kinda of aggravated and confused because my doctors office did not mention that a complex cyst could be cancerous and then I do all this research and have all the symptoms of ovarian cancer and my doctor fails to mention that complex cyst could be cancerous because he is going on vacation next week. I need some medical advice from a medical oncologist or someone who has been through this. Please help.View Thread
