Sist on Left Ovarian Tube
Early last month my dockter showed me a Sist on my Left Ovarian
Tube the size of a golf ball. He says it looks like the Sist is filled with blood, he asked me if I didn't have any pain in that area.
I told him that I often experienced pain in that area but not severe
or chronic. Yesterday my left leg started feeling numb and my left foot started to pain as well as the spot where the Sist is situated at on the lower left. Last night I felt like my skin was on fire espessialy the spot where my sist is situated at. Please tell me, if a Sist can be Life threatening and what the complications can be if something is not done, because my docter doesn't seem to care about this much. Can you please tell me what to do?

Dear Jollie
Normally cysts do not cause major problems - many of them go away by themselves. If they perforate they can cause a bit of bleeding internally that can cause pain and inflammation.
Rather let your Gyne know if the pain gets worse.
