Johns Hopkins Pathology

 
Symptoms:
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain or fullness
  • Vomiting

Patients do not often present with SPN-specific symptoms. The symptoms they do present with are often a result of abdominal organs being compressed by large SPN’s. Symptoms include: nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain or fullness. In some cases, the cyst may have grown large enough to become a palpable mass found during routine examination. In fact, since symptoms of SPN’s are few and non-specific, cysts are often found during routine physical or pelvic examination.
