Not sure I totally understand your question.

But, let me try to help.

There are two types of ovarian cysts.

Simple cysts are clear fluid filled cysts that are usually not cancerous.

Complex cysts are more questionable. They can contain, blood, puss, hair, teeth - I know yuck!!!! These type of cysts can have a greater possibility of being cancerous.

The only way to tell for sure what's in the cyst is to remove and biopsy it. There is no test that can tell what's in it before removal.

Either type of cyst can rupture.

If you believe that a cyst has ruptured please contact your doc to see what needs to be done!

Hope this helps.

what i mean

What happened was this...i had a cyst that the cat scan showed as "complex" or "ruptured". When i was at the mall i got this very sharp pain in my lower abdom. It was so bad that it made me go to my knees on the floor. I was then seen in one ER and they said they didn't know what was going on,,,so i went to another ER because i couldn't stand the pain. They did a cat scan. They couldn't tell which kind of cyst it was. I have a appt today for a vaginal US. So,,my question is this,,,,,If this was a complex cyst can it rupture??? Will they still be able to tell it's a complex cyst after it ruptures?? They also seen alot of free fluid in the pelvic area. Any advice??

This sounds VERY painful .... I am so sorry. Have you talked to your GYN or primary care physician about this? I think you have some great and very valid questions that your doctor should be willing to address.

Good luck to you in getting an answer soon.

Yes, a complex cyst can rupture.

If you are in bad pain, it is a possibility. But, I am in the medical field and it could be something else as well.

I think you are doing the best thing by seeing your doctor and having the ultrasound. That should be able to tell them if it has ruptured.

Let us know how you are doing after the test.

Best wishes - stay well
