I have slight ovary pain...on a scale of one to ten it's about a one maybe two..before my cycle I can feel when I ovulate I take pain killers and it goes away. The pain now is slight I sometimes feel it when I'm working out. or if I'm laying down in a position to long and I move abruptly I will feel something. Is there something I should worry about?
You should see your gynecologist for a good history and physical examination. Pain must be understood within the context of your history including your age, menstrual history, medication use, prior surgery, and exam findings.
Pain can be related to cancer but usually in the setting of large tumors that can be felt on exam and seen on xrays.
So the first place to start is with seeing your doctor and getting a good medical evaluation.
