ovarian cyst and swollen abdomen

Can small ovarian cyst cause abdominal swelling?

Mine is 4cm and I look like 4month pregnant.

Hi,
Small ovarian cysts cannot cause such a huge swelling that looks like a 4 months pregnancy. Other factors like gas and bloating, pregnancy, ascites or collection of fluid in the abdominal cavity etc can cause distension of abdomen. You should consult a gynaecologist for an examination.
Hope this helps.

Thank you for the comment, Dr. Wanjari.
I will see my dr next thursday but I wanted to ask here while I am waiting, because the swelling is really bothering me all day, every day.
I hope my cyst is not cancerous.
Thanks.
