Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board


Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


Hello :wave: , this is my first post to the message boards. I came across them in one of my many google searches, trying to find out what's wrong with me.

About 5 months ago, I was carried into the hospital with the worst sharp abdominal pain I've ever had. Assuming it was my appendix, they did a CT scan and instead found cysts on my right ovary. Being uninsured, I took my chances with them just going away like I was told most do.

I've been in the 145-150 lb weight range for almost 10 years now, and have not been able to lose much weight (got down to 142 once) no matter which diet I've tried. The month before all this started happening, I dropped down to 138 ish. Of course I assumed it was a diet working, maybe even thought it was just luck. Now, less than six months later, I weigh in at 108 lbs (I am 5'6"). I stopped dieting and trying to lose weight months ago, and now my ribs and hip bones are poking through and it just looks strange. No matter what I do or eat I am not gaining weight. Instead, I've been constantly losing it.

The pain in my right lower abdomen comes and goes, and ranges in severity. My right leg has been numb (from big toe to knee) for months, I don't know if that's related. My weight loss has been around 40 lbs in 5 months (doesn't seem too odd, but I am only 21 and was an average weight before....and I am not trying to lose, I am trying to gain).

As I said before, I am uninsured. I am currently on a waiting list at the local hospital (the only place anywhere near me that I qualify to be seen for free). Looks like the earliest appointment is going to be two months!

My concern is this.....is waiting that long going to hurt me in the long run? Do I need to just see someone? If so, who the heck do I need to see? Could any or all of these symptoms be related to the cysts? And the scariest question of all.....could this possibly mean cancer somewhere?

Sorry this was so long, I'm just very confused here. :confused:
