Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

I had a pelvic ultrasound today because I've been having pelvic pain on the left side and some spotting. They found a corpus lutem cyst in the left ovary and a solid mass in the right ovary. The mass is 1.5 cm. I'm 36 years old.

It was unexpected to find something in the right ovary, because all my pain has been on the left. They had me do the CA-125 blood test, but they said I won't get the results for a week. After that, we'll decide if immediate surgery is needed.

I am TERRIFIED of it being ovarian cancer. I know three people connected to work who have had ovarian cancer (one died in her 40s, one has a really bad prognosis, one seems to have beaten it), and so I know how deadly it is. The doctor said statistically my risk is low, but that's no guarantee. I know there's no way to know without the surgery, but I'm dreading the waiting and worrying. I also have anxiety disorder and health anxiety, so I know I'll be a basket case for the next few weeks. I guess I'm just looking for some support and good thoughts.
