Hold tight till results are available , then you'll know what you are dealing with, try not to worry before it happens (not easy I know) but it really does wreck your head. Best of luck, hopefully results will be good for you

Good luck. I hope it’s not OC. If it is you will be swept up in a series of tests and appointments and well taken care of. Don’t look at prognoses online because they are out of date. There are very promising new treatments now.

hi and thank you. i wondered if some of the stuff online was out of date after reading some stuff that I knew was regarding other health things! in the past I would research and research for hours every day when ill to get a handle on it, but lifes too short and i find this subject too complicated. how are you?

I am doing well right now on a PARP inhibitor for maintenance. Long may it continue!

that is great news.

Hi, I know a few people who had tests for cyst in the ovary and that’s exactly what they turned out to be. Don’t jump hurdles before you need to wait for the results , and as already been said the treatment has come on in leaps and bounds, I’m taking a parp inhibitor for the past two years after having a few recurrences . Best of luck and I hope your results are good.

thank you. this subject is all new to me. because i am 63 and have not had periods for ages i do understand there is a higher chance of it being bad news, but trying not to worry about it. hope you are doing well.

I agree, I had a large ovarian cyst removed many years ago along with the ovary and Fallopian tube as they were damaged , but no signs of cancer so don’t worry


Definitely wait for results hopefully it will just be a normal cyst.

As delia below says don’t google as hard as is it not to

Being diagnosed with OC is also not a death sentence there’s many of us here who live with it for years
