Hi. I'm new to this site and was wondering if anybody can help me understand how much risk I am at from ovarian cancer. I'm 48 years old, with three children and I only have a great grandmother, who died of breast cancer in the family (that I know about). I initially went to the doctors about bloating, terrible flatulence and urine problems and just a general unease that something wasn't right. The doctor did a urine test and it had microscopic blood in it. I was given antibiotics and sent for a blood test. The next week,I was called back to the surgery with the news that my blood result showed a CA125 level of 87 and that my urine still had blood in it, even after a week on antibiotics. I was sent for pelvic ultrasound scans and a gynaecological examination and there was possibly a small fibroid and possibly some small cysts around my cervix, but it wasn't clear. I'm now booked in for a laparoscopy on 17th October. Has anybody else had a similar experience and what was the outcome? I'm so worried, I wish I'd never gone to the doctors as I feel well in myself, but everything seems to have escalated. How long after the laparoscopy does it take for the results of the tissue biopsy? Thanking you all for reading. I feel better getting it off my chest as it seems unfair to worry family and friends when it may turn out to be nothing.
