    Hello, Sorry about that. I will like to know your real age. Also I want you to answer these questions for me to have a better idea of what might be going on -when did it start? -is the pain aching in nature or gripping in nature? -is there anything that you do that usually makes the pain worse or better? -is it always there or it comes and goes? -any vaginal discharge? If yes, tell me about the colour and odour? I will await your answers. Thanks

    OK. What's closest to that is a left ovarian cyst. You can do a pelvic scan to see what's going on in the area. While you do that, analgesics will help with the pain. Take diclofenac tablet, 1 twice daily after food. You can let me have a look at the ultrasound report when you are done or show your Doctor.

    An ovarian cyst is a fluid collection in the ovary. This fluid is contained in a sac. Various reasons in relation to why it develops have been given none of which is conclusive for now. All that is know is that it develops and must be taken care off if it's becoming a disturbance. You have 2 ovaries, one on both sides, and if a cyst develops in one it can lead to pain on the affected side just as you have complained. Other things can also be responsible, that's why you need to do a scan to be sure. Operation is not indicated in all cases of ovarian cyst. The decision to operate will be taken by your gynaecologist after considering factors such as size, it's effect on your daily activities, infection or likelihood of torsion. So leave this your Doctor Diclofenac is 50mg bd, use for 3 days. Thanks

    Good afternoon, Sorry about that. From experience, ulcers like that arise mostly from stress. This stress can be from many sources. I want you to identify it and find a way of avoiding it. The ulcer will heal after you have dealt with the stress. Take analgesic for now, multivitamins also help. Take care
