I hope I am in the correct part of the forum. I am, at present going through the very worrying process of knowing if I have OC. The signs are that I have. I went for pelvic US and a 3 cm cyst on rt ovary was found incidentally. I was then referred to gynae within the two week standard. I had CA 125 which came back at 8.6, very low and well within normal. I felt reassured after this. I then went to the gynae and she aid the cyst was complex with solid component and blood supply which I now know is very worrying. I have been referred for a CT scan and my case is being discussed today by a MDT. The gynae has already said that the ovaries will have to be removed and this is scheduled for the end of June and due to tumour size ( she called it a tumour) can be done laparoscopically. I know that many high risk masses turn out to be benign and I would be grateful to hear from anyone in a similar position.
I also have a spinal cord tumour ( benign) which is incredibly rare. I was scheduled for spinal neurosurgery in July, which now the ovary issue has arisen will need to be put back to August or September .
I have so many back symptoms and take strong pain meds that I am worried that some of my back pain may be due to ovarian cyst. I have had pelvic pressure, bloating and spend a lot of time going to the loo! These are all symptoms of a spinal tumour too.
I don't know whether I am coming or going. I don't expect answers as the medical fraternity will give me those. Just need to get this off my chest
