Do Ovarian Cysts Cause Back Pain?

Ovarian CystsOne of the most prominent ovarian cyst symptoms includes sudden or recurring pain in the lower pelvis or abdominal region of varying severity. This pain often extends to the lower back area and can quickly impose restrictions of varying degrees on normal activities. Persistent pain around the pelvic area during menstrual cycles and which might be experienced in the lower back region as well is one of the danger signs every woman should look out for. Unexplained pain such as back pain can indicate the presence of ovarian cysts.

Ovarian cysts, due to their elusive nature are often discovered during a routine medical exam or can be found during an ultrasound which may be performed for various reasons. If you’ve have been diagnosed with ovarian cysts, chances are that you will develop the cysts again and you should not just forget about them. You should continue to get regular checkups to monitor their progress. If you have not undergone a pelvic exam or ultrasound test and you start to experience pain in your lower back and/or the pelvic region, get yourself checked by a qualified physician and you should do this immediately. The pain could very well be due to the presence of ovarian cysts.

Ovarian cysts are often known to enlarge in size if they are left untreated for a long time. Enlarged cysts may press against the urinary bladder and this will cause you to urinate more frequently. Ovarian cysts can also press against other internal organs of the body and consequently cause lower back pain. Needless to say it is of the utmost importance to monitor and make an appointment with your doctor when you are feeling what may be abnormal pain in the lower back and you know that you didn’t do anything to strain that part of your body. Early detection can often save you the trouble of having to cope with more severe symptoms, and even help you to escape the need for surgery.

One way to stop the back pain and deal with ovarian cysts is by the use of over the counter painkillers. Medications such as birth control pills are also available, and sometime it will help them disappear or shrink in size gradually. And of course, the final resort available in more severe or advanced cases is surgery.

Conventional modes of treatment can only help to control your current situation and can not help you from a possible future recurrence. This is where a holistic approach to healing and preventing ovarian cysts has been proven to be quite effective. Because the emphasis is on a comprehensive and natural treatment, ovarian cysts can disappear from your life for good.

A holistic approach advocates maintaining a healthy lifestyle and creating a healthy balance both in the mind and the body. This mode of alternative treatment is so powerful, that it will not only cure your cysts completely, but also prevent them.

    Seriously, ovaries may be the cause of lower back pain! Please elaborate. I’m unable to get relief from chronic lumbar back pain, even with a Medtronic Stimulation Implant and unable to find hardly any reliable info on the net. Thank you.

      I was diagnosed with a left large complex ovarian cyst with an ultrasound. My symptoms felt like left kidney pain with the pain radiating up into my shoulder blade along with lower back pain and urinary frequency. I felt I had a kidney infection but my cultures were negative. I also showed blood in my urine. My follow up is tomorrow with my OB – GYN to see what my treatment options are but want to share some symptoms that may cause someone to ask their doctor for a pelvic ultrasound if you have bad back pain. Especially on one side.
