I am 47 and recently had a small cyst discovered on my ovary. Had a blood test for tumour maker and it came back negative. I have an abdominal pain. It is bearable, no need to take a pain killer but comes and goes every day. I do recollect a 2 or 3 slightly sweaty nights and had one heavy bleeding in March and my current period is delayed. Does anyone else experience the same pain? I wonder if mine is coursed by the possible menopause or cyst or something else.. My mother died of ovarian cancer. I am sick worried now. The cyst is being monitored in case it grows otherwise it does not need to be operated I am told.
