i was diagnosed with this kind of cyst the other day.. is this normal or should i be alarmed about it.. what are the often causes of it..?? im really scared
It is common, in other words 'normal', to have some fluid in the cul de sac. If I recall correctly, then up to 10ml is normal. The cul de sac is the lower area of the abdomen. In cases of bleeding from a cyst, ruptured or not, there will be more fluid in this area. (Sometimes this area is refered to as the "pouch of Douglas" in case you see that wording.) A large amount of fluid can be another possible indication of cancer, but it is not a diagnosis of cancer as other conditions can cause it.
Thanks for the reply. I was hoping that was what it meant. What does it mean when they say there is free fluid in the cul-de-sac?
Physiological cyst is another term for function cyst, the normal cysts that come and go as part of the regular menstrual cycle.
