Ovarian cancer?
Jul 16, 2007
Hi everyone,
Just thought id tell my story and see if anybody had some advice or is in a similar situation. Im a 29 year old female with a 8cm complex cyst on my left ovary. I have had a CA-125 test done, it came up with a reading of 73 and a CA-19.9 test done which came up with a reading of 44. I understand that these tests do give off a higher reading because of other reasons such as benign tumors or mensturation, but l have also read that in a patient that is being evaluated for a pelvic mass with a CA-125 of over 65 that the chance of malignancy is 90%. I have changed doctors and am seeing a Gyno at the womens who suggested another CA-125 test done as the other one l had done was 3 weeks earlier. It came up as the same so he suggested another ultrasound and if that is the same my surgery with be with a gyno/oncologist to be on the safe side.
I have a family history of breast and bowel cancers, so l am a little worried.
Has anyone here been in a simlilar situation?
