if you have had a pelvic ultrasound, it would pick up ascites
a small ovarian cyst by itself would not cause swelling
the most common reason for swelling of the abdomen in the setting of a normal xray such as an ultrasound or CT scan, is distension from bowel gas.
this can happen for many reasons - something simple such as diet too much dairy or legumes
to irritable bowel syndrome
to other bowel disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease
Hello, I'm not a medic but I have a complex mass on my ovary which is currently under investigation. I don't really have any abdominal swelling so I would certainly get your swelling checked out.
Sorry I couldn't help more.
Hi, Rachel. Thanks for the comment.
I guess abdomeninal swelling is caused by a large cyst or it could be ascites.
I have a dr appointment next thursday and I hope she will take my symptoms seriously.
Best wishes to you too.
