Does anybody know the symptoms for cysts or tumors??
They say its almost the same than pregnancy?!
And is it possible that it could influence pregnancy tests? (urine/blood test)

If you mean an ovarian cyst, this commonly presents with pain or irregular periods. If you were pregnant, the cyst would not affect the pregnancy test except for vary rare cases where the cyst secretes pregnancy hormones.
