Conditions with symptom: 'cyst'
Hi I've recently had a hysterectomy for ovarian cyst and endometriosis was discovered I've now felt a hard lump, very sore, on my vagina could this be related? Could it be a sebaceous cyst or bartholin cyst, or am I worrying to much! Thanks
Could be either one or something much worse. See a gynecologist (perhaps a different one than the one who did your hysterectomy) as there has been an increase in vaginal cancer following hysterectomy. 95 % chance or better that it is a cyst sebaceous or bartholin, but not worth taking a chance. If it is sore, there are options.
Thank you for replying Kelly, oh i didn't know that, I will definitely go and have this checked out. Thank you.
I am 27 years old had a laproscopy last October was diagnosed with endometriosis and had a large chocolate ovarian cyst drained (5.3cm), however I have recently gone back to have a ultrasound & transvaginal scan & the cyst has come back but only measuring 2.5cm. My GP decided to put me back on the pill to help, but we want to start trying for a baby. Will i have to be taking the pill forever to prevent the cyst or is there another way? Although after my sugery the Gyneacologist advised me that there is a chance it would come back as they only drained the cyst. Please help?
Can anyone help me? My boyfriend has a cyst on his face and has had it for over two years now. As time has gone by, it's become bigger and bigger. The cyst is close to his eye and we have seen the doctor multiple of times and unfortunately they haven't been able to help us. He works in retail as a manager and find his cyst on his face really uncomfortable when confronting customers in conflict or new people. Where can we go to get help?
I've suffered with severe cysts in my face from around the age of 15-16 and got a outbreak now of 6 which are gradually going with. Be sure to wash the face more then twice a day. I don't use soap ir any oily products on the face and use a warm salt-water compress whenever I get the chance. Sticking to that washing and compress mine usually draw an head after around 2 weeks. I've also heard a drawing salve can speed up the process depending how deep the cyst actually is. Probably not the best answer but thought id share what works for me fir you to give a try.
I have the same issue as your b/f Lauren, I have been to the NHS several times and they have told me they won't do anything about it as its classes as cosmetic even though I've stated I want it doing, I'll sign a waver and I don't mind a scar. My advice would be to look privately, that's what I'm having to do.
I'm a 28yr old female and I tried to make a GP appointment today for a cyst I have on my scalp but could only get a phone appointment. Told the gp my cyst has started to seep and oose puss again (previously burst 3yrs ago and I can remember the pain :( ) he's has written me a prescription and said there isn't anything else they can do. This gp has never seen my cyst as it was a different practice I attended as I've since moved house. Is this normal? Shouldn't a gp at least examine it?
I have had 2 boils on my scalp in as many months. My second boil was over Christmas and was very inflamed and excrutiating. I wanted it lanced. I was informed over the phone that the only treatment is antibiotics they dont lance them anymore even though they are painful. I was surprised that i was diagnosed over the phone but no lancing allowed. Now if you see youtube in the states it appears to be you have a zit nurse who sorts boils,cysts, acne, blackheads, whiteheads etc...... why doesnt the nhs have this?
how does epididymal cyst affect sex, any problems with ejaculation? Also, is there any risk of rupturing the cyst during sex?
Hi Mark, Nope, not for me. No problems. Only gets a little sore when I examine myself. Cheers Joe.
I'm 23 and have been diagnosed with an ovarian cyst that measures 6cm x 5cm x 4cm with calcification in the centre. Although some do not experience symptoms I have been getting shooting pains, especially during periods, dull aches, painful breasts, swelling of the abdomen and pain and bleeding during intercourse. Since the diagnoses I have had two ultrasound scans where the doctor has said she is 99% sure it is a dermoid cyst but sent me for an MRI to confirm. What is the usual procedure for dealing with cysts of this nature? I'm really concerned that the ovary attached to this cyst will be removed and this will affect my fertility. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Were can I get a Subaceous cyst either drained or removed my own GP says it is not available on the NHS so I would like to know the cost I will incur. The cyst is about 2cm diameter on the top of my head causing pain whenever I get a haircut and often when I catch it with a comb Richard
Hi Richard, i had one of these cysts removed free at a skin clinic in shrewsbury. in april this year, i was refered by my gp, hope this is helpful to you . :-) Sam.
I am 31 and I have a 46mm cyst on my right hand side. I have just stated having some pain in my lower abdomen and I am also very bloated and feel horrible because of if, I don't know if its because of the cyst or something. If anyone has any ideas or thoughts it would be great.
Allison, I had no signs of a cyst on my left side, till one night I ended up double over in pain.. Went in and they had to remove the ovary, via key hole surgery via belly button, scaring in absolute minim and down time was also good... I was shown pictures of what had been taken out as I was worried about loosing a ovary.. When I saw the pictures of what it and my ovary looked like,and advise all tests showed all clear to any cancerous formation, I was felt ok with it.... I would be going back to your doctor for more advice on this, only you know your body and when it does not feel right.. Go and advise GP all the signs you are feeling and let a expert in his field advise... Take care
I was diagnosed with fibroids back in 2005 and PCOS. Periods were regular and pain was inconsistent so after 6months decided not to do anything. I deal with the facial hair. I found alternative treatment taking systemic enzymes which shrunk the fibroid but was expensive. Kept doing this every couple of years as GP just wanted to prescribe painkillers. In 2011, young female GP told me to wait for menopause as in mid 40s! This year started really bad abdo pain, thought fibroid again. Was in tears with pain and very bloated (thought was wheat intolerance). Got very assertive with GP and asked for up to date scans and gynae referral. GP has been great, saw a fab gynae consult within 4 weeks, scans 2 weeks later and have a 4.7cm fibroid, 7cm ovarian cyst on right and 1.2cm cyst on left ovary (no pain yet there). Waiting for op to have cysts removed and mirena coil to deal with fibroid. Been in lots of pain for 10 days now but period only lasted 5 days. I moved 3yrs ago and new GPs (apart from young female) have been great. Keep pushing and see different GP if need be - there are some really good ones out there but you have to make a pain of yourself to get referred. Also, google - I have found really helpful support forums. NHS website was actually good. Gives good and bad experiences but from real women who have had treatment. All the best for you - keep on at them - minimum you need is referral for transvaginal ultrasound to see if fibroid or ovarian/fallopian cyst. Once you know what dealing with, GPs can refer you to specialist.
Hi there I am 19 years old, I'm not a virgin but I know that this may not be an STD as I was with the same guy for 6years and i havn't had any sexual contact since we split.
