Benign Ovarian Cyst

Symptoms and Signs of Benign Ovarian Cysts

Often, there are no symptoms of ovarian cysts. Cysts can cause symptoms if they bleed, rupture, twist the fallopian tube or get twisted themselves, are bumped during sexual intercourse or push on nearby structures in the body. Symptoms of ovarian cysts can include:

  • Menstrual irregularities, such as a late period, abnormal uterine bleeding, or a longer-than-usual or shorter-than-usual menstrual cycle
  • Abdominal swelling or bloating; feeling of fullness
  • Mild abdominal pain
  • Pain during bowel movements
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pelvic pain shortly before or during a menstrual cycle
  • Pelvic pain characterized by a constant, dull ache
  • Sudden, sharp abdominal pain
  • Hirsutism (unusual hair growth on the face or body)
  • Nausea

If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek medical diagnosis. Schedule your screening at Florida Hospital today.
