Hi, I feel a bit of a fraud writing on here, but would value any comments or support. I have been losing weight for 2-3 months without trying and some work colleagues finally convinced me to visit my GP. I did this last week only to be sent for urgent blood tests followed, the next day by ultrasound and transvaginal scans which showed up a cyst from my left ovary. The GP told me she thought my uterus was high in her examination which prompted the bloods and scans. Anyway, I was called by the GP yesterday with the words "are you with someone"? Enough to put the fear of god in anyone no doubt, when she proceeded to tell me I had a solid mass which she could see from the scan results. I have absolutely no idea whether cysts are solid or fluid filled and everytime I try to google this (which I promised my friend I wouldn't) the end result was cancer! I have an appointment in the gynae clinic in 9 days time and am trying to be positive about everything! I am rarely ill and can probably count on one hand the number of times in my life I've visited my GP other than being pregnant. So obviously this has knocked me for 6. I have told 2 friends what is going on. Unfortunately one is on holiday, but the other has been my rock, by my side and by her phoneto listen to me. But what I really need is to hear from others who have been through what I am going through and come out the other side! Thanks for taking the time to read this
