Cyst filled with bloodA third type of functional cyst, which is common, is a Hemorrhagic cyst, which is also called a blood cyst, hematocele, and hematocyst.[2] It occurs when a very small blood vessel in the wall of the cyst breaks, and the blood enters the cyst. Abdominal pain on one side of the body, often the right side, may be present. The bleeding may occur quickly, and rapidly stretch the covering of the ovary, causing pain. As the blood collects within the ovary, clots form which can be seen on a sonogram.[3][4] Occasionally hemorrhagic cysts can rupture, with blood entering the abdominal cavity. No blood is seen out of the vagina. If a cyst ruptures, it is usually very painful. Hemorrhagic cysts that rupture are less common. Most hemorrhagic cysts are self-limiting; some need surgical intervention. Even if a hemorrhagic cyst ruptures, in many cases it resolves without surgery. Patients who don't require surgery will experience pain for 4 - 10 days after, and may require several days rest. Studies have found that women on tetracycline antibiotics recover 25% earlier than the majority of patients, a surprising correlation found in 2004. Sometimes surgery is necessary,[5][6] such as a laparoscopy ("belly-button surgery" that uses small tools inserted through one or more tiny slits in the abdomen).[7]

Thanks for your very helpful and informative comments. Have you had personal experience with these critters? A hemorrhagic cyst isn't complex OR functional, then, right? And it wouldn't be malignant? I don't have any evidence of one but I saw it mentioned and was curious.

My cyst is complex and about 4.3 cm on ultrasound 2 weeks ago, but I think bigger now because I have a lot of discomfort/pain and pressure and bloating that I didn't have then. I'm in that wonderful wait and try not to worry phase and changing doctors too.

I have a 8cm cyst as of 1-22-10 on my left ovary, was 6cm on 1-16-10.Everyone wants to wait and see if it takes care of itself. I do already know from colon surgery on 12-7-09 my surgeon saw it and did all the right tests and they are all fine. The main reason I've been given the no-go on surgery is that the cyst is located very close my colon that I just had surgery on. Their not to worried it will twist because the colon is kind of keeping it stable.I followed up on 2-3-10 and it was back to 6cm.It is a Hemorrhagic cyst and I'm not sure if the pain is from the cyst leaking in the pelvic area or if it's from just the size and location.My gynecologist said  It would have been removed by now, but they say surgery is too risky given the location.I'm wait and see for now.I haven't seen much evidence that it will just go away though.Your cyst could be bigger causing pain or draining causing pain.Just like me.Looks like were in the same crappy boat.

2 cm in 6 days!  Yikes!  Yes, it feels as though it has grown a whole lot just since it's been discovered, but I honesty thought it must be my imagination.  An o.r. nurse friend of mine, who does surgery on these frequently (she says cysts pay her bills!), told me the same thing as you, that they really can and do grow very fast sometimes.  I feel like I did when I was pregnant and the baby would kick my ribs, or just be in the way of eating so I'd feel full without eating much.  At least having sex doesn't hurt!

How do they know yours is hemorrhagic? Does it show up differently on an ultrasound, or what?

i was wondering if a hemmorrahgic cyst's case rectal and vaginal pressure? i was told i have a hemmorrahgic cyst on my right ovary,but at the time it was very small something like 13x9mm i have a history with endometreosis and had a hyst.
i am just curious if this has maybe grown? or is this a common symptom of these cysts? the rectal pressure is terriable!!! i had a rectocle/cystocle yrs ago and had it repaired. this type of pressure is similar,but different!!! this pressure feels like 'my period' which is impossiable. ??? any ideas?? i have an appt. with my specialist next week going to ask him,but i figured someone with experience with these would know??
thank you
