I have been dealing with ovarian cysts I have had 6 burst in the last year. They are very painful. I also have had a cyst removed from my scalp but another one has come back. I also have one on my wrist called a ganglion cyst. It doesn't hurt just annoying it prevents me from doing several tasks because its so weak. I want to know how to stop the ovarian cysts. Those are severely painful and I would really like them to stop.

I have had a cyst on the back of my neck at first I found it in my teenage years and went to the hospital and the doctor told me to put a luke warm water or wash cloth on it. It was gross because it broke and it was draining a clear liquid. Now, I have had many more since then on my neck and they are so gross. I haven't had them checked out yet.

I noticed a large lump in my armpit. At first I thought it may be razor burn, but it was way too big and beneath my skin. I've had a cyst on the back of my calf as a younger child, and so I read up on them. I never would have thought you could get a cyst in your armpit, but I guess anything is possible.

I have cysts in the back of my leg. I'm an athlete in high school and the cyst pulls on my groin and hamstring whenever I stretch. My dad has had the same kind of cyst in the same place for over 20 years now and it bothers him too.

I had a small half penny size bump on my upper bank, normal skin colored, no pain. My doctor looked at it, said it was a cyst and not to worry about it. Tonight at work, I bumped into wall backwards, and now my cyst is DARK red, and the size of a penny and hurts.

I had a pea size cyst on my back, which became abscessed. Doctor lanced it, squeezed all of the abscess out. Now, two years later, the same spot has a large, bump there. No bother to me except it looks gross.

I had cyst removed from my back, and now it has spread. I have four more smaller ones and one about the size of a silver dollar, it is red, and irritated, and it hurts. I don't know what to use or how to stop the irritation.
