Dermoid ovarian cyst

Hello,  I was told that I have a dermoid cyst of my right ovary and now i am feeling pain that is even worse on my left side.  I dont have insurance and cant really afford to get anything done right now so I was wondering if there is a way to get rid of these things without surgery?  The pain is getting to be excruciating and Im really sad about it.  If anyone knows a way to get rid of these on a tight budget please let me know.  I am in pain pretty much all the time and I just want it to go away.

    I'm sorry you're having so much pain. I would call your County Health Services and see what they may recommend. Regarding the pain, with some cysts, it is not unusual to feel the pain on the "opposite" side. I hate to suggest this as it should be on a last resort, but if the pain becomes intolerable, and you don't have a physician, the ER is your only option, but the previous poster is absolutely right. At some point in time, this will have to be removed. There really is no "easy fix".

Good luck ..

Hi.  I'm 27 and a year ago I had to get my left overy removed b/c a dermoid cyst took it over.  Did you get your cyst on the right side removed?  You have to remove them surgically, like it or not.  The sooner the better.  You don't want to lose an ovary unless you have to, and it could damage your insides.  I also think they can open and give you an infection and cause pain.  You have to go to the doctor.
