iam a 17 year old female. About two months ago i had a cyst on my right ovary. The cyst burst and i was told the contence would clear once i had my next period. My period came and i had heavy bleeding and i was fine until about a couple of weeks ago when i started to get the same pains i had before the cyst burst. I went to doctors and had 3 blood tests which tested me for underactive thyroid Gland, Diabetes,hormoans,Glandular Fever and Cyst. They have all come back clear so i went for a ultra sound which was clear also. I have abdomanal pain which goes from left to right and into my lower back. I am always tired and i need to rest alot. My appitite is crazy as im always hungry. I go from a normal colour to pale very easily and im warm alot . There is a history of ovarian cancer in my family but doctors wont test me because of my age. I have been told by so many doctors that they dont know what it is. I really would like if you could tell me if you have any ideas. Its really worrying be and im very frustrated with being told its nothing. Thank you

Unfortunately, the symptoms that you describe could be caused by a variety of medical conditions, and as I am not involved in your medical care, I am not going to be able to provide you with better answers than the doctors who are actually taking care of you. At the same time, ovarian cancer would be extremely unlikely in a 17 year-old person.

You might ask your doctor to refer you to a Gynecologic Endocrinologist for further evaluation.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These features are suggestive of hormonal imbalance. I would suggest you symptomatic treatment.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
