Often, ovarian cysts don’t cause any symptoms. You may not realize you have one until you visit your obstetrician/gynecologist for a routine pelvic exam. Ovarian cysts can, though, cause problems if they twist, bleed, or rupture.

If you have any of the symptoms below it’s important to have them checked out. That’s because they can also be symptoms of ovarian tumors. Ovarian cancer often spreads before it is detected.

Symptoms of ovarian cysts and tumors include:

  • Pain or bloating in the abdomen.
  • Difficulty urinating, or frequent need to urinate.
  • Dull ache in the lower back.
  • Pain during sexual intercourse.
  • Painful menstruation and abnormal bleeding.
  • Weight gain.
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  • Loss of appetite, feeling full quickly.
