Sharp pain in your side
If you feel as if you’re being skewered in the right side of your body, and you’re also nauseated and running a fever, you could have appendicitis. It may be an ovarian cancer, if these symptoms occur in women.
Typically these fluid-filled sacs are harmless and disappear on their own, but if one twists or ruptures, it can cause terrible pain. Both cases are resolved with an emergent surgery.
Lin Chang, MD, a gastroenterologist and co-director of the Center for Neurovisceral Sciences and Women’s Health at UCLA adds that “if you don’t remove an inflamed appendix, it can burst,” Considering the fact that it can block blood flow to the ovary within hours, a cyst also needs to be removed right away.
