I have just found out I have a 6cm cyst on my left ovary but why??
I'm 27 years old with 5 children. My eldest are fraternal twins. I have had the coil for 3 years and do not get periods. I went to the doctors withwhat I thought were urine infection symptoms as I needed to go to the toilet a lot, but when it came back clear and I could feel pressure on my bladder I was sent for a scan 3 weeks ago. They found a 6cm cyst on my left ovary and a "pocket of fluid". I have another scan on April 5th to check for growth but my doctor isn't telling me anything about it until then. I'm going out of my mind with worry, is it cancer? I've never had any cysts before, or any problems with periods or fertility. What is this cyst? Thank you for any answers.
