Possible Ovarian Cancer/Cyst?
An_243131 posted:
Hello, I am looking for some help. I went into the emergency room for abdominal pain, so they did a bunch of blood testing and determined that my liver was inflamed. However, they also detected that my bilirubin levels were higher than average, and they were concerned for me to see a specialist. After coming home from the hospital, I still have abdominal pain and just recently discovered that I have a small lump, diagonally from my bellybutton, on my left side, near my hip bone. It seems like it's on my ovary, but I am not positive. I am also having other symptoms like, back pain, weakness, bloating, fatigue, frequent urination and occasional constipation. I am not sure how my liver being inflamed, my high levels of bilirubin, and the lump, all associate with each other, but I am really concerned because I am in a lot of pain. I am scheduled to see a specialist tomorrow but if someone can give me some type of insight of any information, that would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!

I have all those same abdominal symptoms! I'm worried to go to the e.r. I've been putting it off for weeks now and keep getting worse. =/ I offer no advice but no matter what your prognosis I do hope it's fixable and you feel better soon. Best of luck... and out of curiosity update what they say. =>

I am telling you right now you need to have them do a scan of your abdominal region. I had the same thing what is happening is that your ovary has a cyst on it and big if there is a lump by your pelvis. All the symptoms you described are ones I had too. What may be happening is that it is growing bigger and if it does get bigger your ovary can turn on itself. I had this happen and when it does you will know pain like none other. Get this worked out before it's to late, they will probably do laproscopy if they determine it a danger to you.
