There are many types of cysts, some sharing the same symptoms, while others may differ. They can grow almost anywhere in the body or under the skin. The sac-like pockets of membranous tissue contain air, fluid and other substances and are mainly benign or noncancerous.

A cyst may develop in a person's body due to trauma or infection that causes blockage in a duct. Cysts can appear as a bump on the skin or so deep down in the body that a person cannot feel them. There are a variety of cyst symptoms for different varieties.

Pelvic Pain

One of the more common cysts is an ovarian cyst. They can develop in a person's ovary or on its surface. It is not uncommon for a woman to develop this type of cyst at some point, although they are generally harmless and rarely cause much, if any, discomfort.

Most women won't experience any symptoms with ovarian cysts, but if they encounter any, one of them could be pelvic pain. Besides being an occasional symptom of ovarian cysts, pelvic pain can also occur for several other reasons, such as menstrual cramps, urinary tract infection and pelvic inflammatory disease.
