can a cyst on your ovaries anger outbursts?

For about 7 months I have had extreme anger outbursts I would wake up angry and go to bed angry I knew deep down I shouldn't be this angry but it just kept getting worse and worse it got to the point where I was physically hurting people and I found out that I have a cyst on my ovaries and I was just hoping that is the reason for these anger outbursts cuz I don't want to be like this anymore I don't want to hurt people anymore I know I shouldn't but I do anyways it kills me knowing that I'm hurting these people but I can't stop

I'm sorry you're going through this. Ovarian cysts can alter hormone levels so it could cause some changes in your emotional lability / stability.

Another thing that could be the cause especially if it's cyclical is Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Some women have an extreme form of PMS that can cause outbursts like yours.

I hope this helps you figure out what's going on.
