Abdominal Mass

I have had issues for a while with everything I can think of. I have had multiple ovarian cysts as well as gastrointestinal issues. Now i have a mass the size of a grapefruit inside my abdomen. Its worse in the morning from after laying down all night. It pushes my stomach up and you can see it. Its very strange, not to mention painful when i push on it. I also feel very bloated and uncomfortable. Please help!!!

I am so sorry to hear about your mass.  It sounds like it needs to be surgically removed. Masses over 5cm that are complex have a slight chance of being malignant.  Although, most still do end up being benign.  You need to be sure to follow up with your gynecologist as soon as possible and ask for transvaginal ultrasound to determine the size of your cyst.  I hope you get some relief soon!

Thank you, I just went and got a ultrasound and blood work done yesterday,  the ultrasound tech took a while and was measuring a lot of things on the screen. Scary. She didnt tell me anything when i was there. I guess i have to wait for the results. Thanks for the reply!
