Ovarian Pain?

I was wondering if someone could please help.  For the last two or three months I have been having left hip muscle/buttocks pain.  I personal train so thought it may be a muscle injury.  The other day though I pressed around in the area of my left ovary and got pain shooting to my buttocks and down my leg and the area of the ovary also hurt.  I have had no other symptoms such as bloating or change in bowel habits.  I also find I have pain when I sit for long periods of time.  When I am up walking around, I have no pain.  Do you think this is something ovary related??  I am worried as when I have a look on the internet, ovarian cancer or cysts seems to come up.  It only hurts too when I press down hard and deep.  I am going to see my GP next week but would appreciate any assistance. Thanks, Deni.

It sounds as if you may have an ovarian cyst.  Like Marie said, you need to see your gynecologist and have them do a transvaginal ultrasound.  This will give them a good view of your ovary and any cysts that you may have.  Please rest assured that ovarian cysts and cancer have most of the same symptoms.  95% of ovarian cysts are non cancerous.  It is common to have pain during exercise, sex, and sitting for long periods of time when you have an ovarian cyst.  Please keep us updated on how you are doing.

It warrants an exam.  The best doctor for the job is a gynecologist. Any other doctor will likely run a bunch of tests that later prove useless. You need to undergo two types of ultrasound tests to see if there are any cystic growths on the painful ovary.
